Las Vegas was known for many years as the 'adult's playground'. This city 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 changed dramatically in recent years in Las Vegas, turning into one large amusement park for the whole family! Every year more attractions surface offering more things to do and see while visiting the city. There is such a wide variety of things to do inside and outside of Las Vegas apart from gambling, that it would be a shame to pass up the opportunity to see some of the beautiful sites around the area.

Outside of the city limits are beautiful deserts, mountains and areas with spectacular views. Las Vegas and Nevada offer excellent hotels, along with some of the most undisturbed wildlife and nature reserves and fantastic camping to be found most anywhere.

A Brief Look at Some Las Vegas Attractions

Think Entertainment! Check out the available shows during the time you are in Vegas! There are numerous entertaining shows throughout the city to suit most everyone's budget and tastes. From family to adult performances, taking in a live show has always been one of the favourite attractions when visiting. Las Vegas Boulevard Theme Hotels are also at the very top of the 'must see' list of attractions. Each hotel is certainly worth the visit and spending a fair amount of time at. From shopping, dining to free entertainment, they all offer unique and extravagant surroundings that keep you simply awe inspired!

Attractions in Las Vegas Include the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon

Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon

Of the many attractions in Las Vegas to choose from, take in the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon tour! Book yourself a seat on any of the many sightseeing tours available and visit the architectural marvel that is Hoover Dam. As well, be sure to take in one of the Seven Wonders of the World... the Grand Canyon. Of all the attractions to take in, this is without a doubt, a must see!

Colorado River:

The Colorado River is excellent for river-rafting and water sports, but you don't have to take part if it's not your thing. Instead just sit back and enjoy another of nature's marvels. Black Canyon and Lake Mead are also beautiful picturesque attractions in the area.

Bonnie Springs:

Who can't resist going to one of the old towns like those in the Western gun slinging movies? Your destination needs to be Old Nevada. There you can delight in an old western town right in the middle of Red Rock Canyon. They host live western style old west shootouts so come prepared, partner! There are simply too many attractions in this town to mention in just one article. From theme parks in the Circus - Circus Hotel, the Gilcrease Nature Sanctuary, Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve, Mt. Charleston to Nascar Stock Car Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, it's all here!

With all this to see, Las Vegas makes a perfect family vacation destination!

Happy Travels!
