The Family Side of Vegas

Apr 3, 2008
Las Vegas Nevada has forever been a favorite vacation getaway spot for the businessperson, couples, and the wealthy. One social grouping that it has never been very popular for is that of the family. This is due to the fact that the massive casinos that litter this amazing city have much more money to sink into publicizing their establishments then the family sites. Thus the bigger financial conglomerates have dwarfed Las Vegas as a family vacation spot. Despite the lack of notoriety as a family vacation spot, as it turns out, Las Vegas has a large number of great activities for families with children for those who have taken time to look into it.

One such family oriented attraction is that of Gameworks. This is the combined result of what happens when two of the world's biggest gaming corporations come together to create a family oriented establishment. Gameworks is the culmination of the funding and inspiration of Sega Enterprises and the always-famed Universal Studios. This establishment is the ultimate in gaming fun. You will find NASCAR racing games, military games, sports games, and even the games that the parents enjoyed when they were children, such as Pac-man, Mrs. Pac-man, Space Invaders, and even Galaga. There truly is a game here for everyone. When you need a break from all the gaming, there is even a complete restaurant that serves a massive menu of fine dining cuisine as well as children's favorites.

There are many shows that are suitable for children as well as adults also in the great city of Las Vegas. One such entertainment is that of the Lance Burton Magic Show at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino. In his amazing shows, Lance Burton, the world-renowned magician, will impress and stupefy you with his impressive mystical tricks and illusions. He has been known to make people completely vanish, saw people in half, make individuals and objects levitate, and just generally prove that the impossible is only the improbable.

If you are traveling on a budget and want to save a little money, yet insure that your kids leave Las Vegas with a smile and a memory, there is always the option of the MGM Grand Lion Habitat. This is exactly as it sounds, a real habitat that has real live lions that you can view. You can stand by and watch these magnificent royalty creatures of the animal kingdom go through their daily lives of eating, drinking, and even playing in what appears to be a frighteningly scary fight, but turns out to just be a little good natured wrestling. This is not a mere enclosure with a couple of lions for you to look at. There are over thirty lions and tigers in this habitat for you to view.

If you are looking for a good family oriented vacation that will leave the children with a memory of a lifetime, do not automatically cross Las Vegas off your list just because it bears the nickname of "sin city." There is more to this grand urban area than is generally publicized. Give your kids a holiday among holidays this year in Las Vegas Nevada.
