Pack the kids in the car because you are going to Las Vegas for Spring Break! Las Vegas is easy and you don’t have to do too much planning or spend too much money. Pools are plentiful as is cheap food. All you really need is a few things to keep the kids occupied. That is where we come in, check out our list of suggestions below to keep the whole family happy this Spring Break.
SCORE Interactive at Luxor Las Vegas - The sports fans in the family will love the interactive exhibits and if competition is your thing you can easily challenge your kids to a game or two in each of the exhibits. Sports memorabilia from the major sports Hall of Fames fill the eight galleries in this 10,000 square foot Mecca to sports.
Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay – Spend some time by the touch tank and feel a real bat ray or watch the jellyfish float around and appear weightless. Whatever you choose do the aquarium draw is not just about Sharks. Take some time and take in the complete scene as sharks, tuna and sea turtles surround you in this impressive display at Mandalay Bay Las Vegas.
Wildlife Habitat at Flamingo – Have the kids roam around the grounds at Flamingo Las Vegas and keep an eye out for Pink Flamingos. Yes, you’ll see them standing around as you point out the koi pond that is filled with giant goldfish and ducks seeking a free meal. While you are at it, have the kids feed the fish while you get a margarita at Carlos 'n Charlies!
Adventuredome at Circus Circus – Your kids will thoroughly enjoy the idea of limited wait times for all the rides at this indoor, climate controlled amusement park. Whatever you do, do not put yourself through the pain of KAOS. Have your children get on and do whatever it takes to escape the duty of escorting them on to this ride. They’ll love it but as parents we longer have the stomachs, backs or courage for these types of rides.
Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage – I am not sure if the dolphins impress me more than the white tigers but I do know that your kids will spend a long time watching the panthers, leopards and yes, even the dolphins during your visit. There are no dolphin shows but there is great detail taken to making sure that a real educational experience is had by all. Ask any trainer about the goal of the habitat and you’ll be pleased to hear about the vision of this attraction.
