Check Out These Exciting Family Attractions in Las Vegas

It’s hard to keep up with all the new amazing Family Attractions in Las Vegas!  It’s seems every time I go to update this article, something new and exciting has just opened in the city.  Vegas has definitely changed over the years and is now, more than ever, a holiday destination the whole family can enjoy. 🙂

Vegas is now considered a perfect family vacation destination to visit in the United States.

Las Vegas was known for many years as the adult’s playground.  Vegas was and still is the gambling and drinking capital of the world, and it was just about as Wild West as you could get in the twentieth century.  Things have certainly changed! 😀

Check out this short video on 5 very popular attractions in Las Vegas.

Enjoy …

Things have changed dramatically in recent years in Las Vegas, with the city turning into one large amusement park for the whole family!  Every year more attractions in Las Vegas surface offering more things to do and see while visiting the city and enjoying your  Holidays in the USA.

There is such a wide variety of things to do inside and outside of Las Vegas apart from gambling.  It would be a shame to pass up the opportunity to see some of the beautiful sites around the area while visiting the city.  In upcoming articles I will include highlights of some of the more popular Las Vegas sites that are definitely worth taking in, as well as some other areas of interest that I am sure you and your family will enjoy.

Outside of the Las Vegas city limits are beautiful deserts and mountains, most offering spectacular views.  Las Vegas and the State of Nevada offer excellent hotels and entertainment, but also the surrounding area has some of the most undisturbed wildlife and nature reserves around.

There is also wonderful camping in the surrounding  area for you and your family to enjoy.

If you’re a thrill seeker, then head to the top of the Stratosphere tower and experience the highest thrill rides in the world! The SkyJump will wisk you off 108 floors up at a high speed bungee-type ride.

Take a ride on a mechanical arm that stretches 64 feet out from the top of the tower, and find yourself hanging in mid-air, then it spins you at a speed up to 3 gs! Yikes 🙁 Seats reach angles of 70° so you’ll find yourself facing straight down.

This new attractions is the world’s tallest observation or ferris wheel reaching 167.7 meters in height!  This huge wheel consists of twenty eight egg-shaped capsules that are attached to the outer rim of the wheel. The capsules can each hold up to 40 passengers and are individually rotated to keep the capsule horizontal as the wheel turns. Much like the London Eye in London, England.
