Questions and comments

Is Las Vegas for Families? Is it appropriate for kids?

I'm traveling to Las Vegas in August for a work convention. I'd love to bring my 6 year old. Is Las Vegas appropriate for kids? Should I take my child to Las Vegas?

LasVegasKids.net Vegas Family Experts

The short answer: yes, Las Vegas is a great place to visiti with kids these days. The long answer: things were different prior to the "Great Recession" of 2008, which seriously impacted Las Vegas's tourism industry. Since that time Las Vegas has changed it's marketing strategy to seek out more diversity in it's visitor base--less reliance on a single purpose destination (all things sin, hence Sin City) and all things to all people. Las Vegas began attracting groups that previouly weren't desired by the city, including families. There are, of course, no shortage of articles on the internet urging parents to keep their children away from Vegas, and every now and then you'll still find the diehard traditionalist Vegas type publishing simiarlly themed articles. But Las Vegas has changed. Kids and families are not only welcome, the city has opened its arms and embraced the family travel segment. Those of us who have a long history with this town know that in previous years major hotel operators such as MGM Grand simply wouldn't touch the family travel segment. Here's a post on the MGM Grand website dated April 2, 2019 titled "Shows, Attractions and Events in Las Vegas for Kids" How things have changed!

What is there to do for babies

Hello, my family and I will be coming to Vegas for Sema (in October) and am wondering what there is to do for a 1.5 year old. I also am curious if there are strollers that can be rented, so we don't have to fly one in. Also do hotels (specifically Excalibur) have pack n plays or sleeping cribs for babies? Thank you!

LasVegasKids.net Vegas Family Experts

Las Vegas has a fair amount to do for babies and younger children. Starting at the south end of the Strip is Town Square Children's Park and Playground, it's free and it's located in an open-air pedestrian mall south of Mandalay Bay hotel. While there you'll be surrounded by nice retail and dining options, including a Whole Foods. Town Square is a bit too far to walk from the hotels on the Strip but a short taxi ride should cost no more that $10-$15.

In the polar opposite direction, in Downtown Las Vegas, is the Tree House & Play Zone at the Container Park. This open-air shopping center built from repurposed shipping containers. Located just a few blocks away from the Fremont Street Experience, this open-air shopping center filled with boutique retail shops, restaurants, and live entertainment. Your baby or young child will love the full gated children's park, it's free, which offers a 33-foot tall slide for older kids and large foam blocks for tossing around or building with.

One of the best entertainment values in Las Vegas is the Carnival Midway at Circus Circus This is the world's largest permanent circus and it offers free, live acts every day.

A feast for the eye for people of all ages is Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. The Conservatory is open 24-hours, 7 days per week and is free to the public.

There are a few options for stroller rentals in Las Vegas. I can't vouch for any since we haven't used them so do your homework to find the best option for your particular needs. Las Vegas Baby Rentals, Mommy Rents, Cloud of Goods, Traveling Baby Company, Baby Quip

Excalibur offers cribs at no charge as do most Strip hotels (not all, some charge a daily fee). You can also request a refridgerator for your hotel room--Excalibur charges $25 for this, however, I would recommend you insist on having the fee charged if requesting a fridge for your baby, you'll find that management will normally oblige.

 

Las Vegas with Kids Under 6

Hi, we are planning to visit vegas with kids, 5 and 3 year olds. What are the options for child care when parents are busy in casino or some other activities. Are child care safe?

LasVegasKids.net Vegas Family Experts

The number of families visiting Las Vegas with kids is on the rise and businesses are adapting by providing more services to accommodate them. I'd recommend you read our child care page. During December 2018 we spent 3 weeks recontacting all known tourist related child care providors in Las Vegas so it's the most current such resource on the web that we know of. I think you'll find some answers there. Some general questions to ask agencies you'll be contacting are:

  • If hiring a professional child care agency, how many years have they been in business? Are they licensed?
  • If an individual, ask for the person's resume and references.
  • What are the qualifications and experience of the caregiver?
  • Is the caregiver certified to provide CPR and First Aid?
