Family Activities in Las Vegas

It can be hard for me to put into words how much I enjoy visiting Las Vegas with my husband and children. We have been visiting this tremendous city for more than 10 years, and we love it.

Tiger Golf

Every Saturday morning, my husband loves to golf with his buddies. Therefore, we decided to head over to the Butch Harmon School of Golf. The former swing trainer of Tiger Woods runs this facility. Staff, which includes Butch Harmon, provides practical tips in how to improve at the game. One time, we decided to stay at Caesars Palace. It was so nice, since we had transportation to and from the facility.

Muse at Museums

Museums have always intrigued our family. We have always made it a point to visit museums of the community. Our children have always liked attending the Discovery Children’s Museum. My husband’s favorite is the National Atomic Testing Museum, which is located about an hour outside of town. My favorite museum to visit is the Neon Museum.

Tours in Pink

Part of the thrill of going to Las Vegas is taking a tour of the town. I recently heard about tours that are given in a pink Jeep. It was fun to see Las Vegas and the surrounding area. Our tour began with a pink Jeep picking up our family at the hotel lobby. Our tour guide was fun and quite informative. The tour ended way too soon, and we decided to go on another pink tour in order to learn more about the surroundings.

Dolphin Adventure

At one point in my life, I seriously considered becoming a marine biologist. Although it never happened, I got the chance to experience some similar work with training dolphins at the Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Habitat. I got some excellent training tips and instruction from animal experts. It was an honor to see these magnificent creatures in a natural environment, even though the facility itself is miles away from an ocean. When the class ended, I felt like I was a marine biologist.

Las Vegas always has new things for families and couples too. With so many things to do and hotels on the Vegas strip, each experience can be different than the last. Sites like Gogobot really help in planning your trip as you can read user reviews so you can feel more comfortable with what you will be getting into. Visiting this town does not get old for us. It is an annual family trip that we like each year.
