Las Vegas is not a place I would normally thought to  have taken children but somehow it does work. We hired a car but to be honest there is no real point, as they have a railway running down the strip and traveling  by taxi is much easier.

Where to stay

  • I stayed at the Four Seasons as it does not have a casino. The rooms are huge and luxurious and there  is no smell of smoke. As there is no casino to walk through, it is much easier to come and go.
  • Another friend was staying at the Mandarin Oriental, which I will definetly try next time, it is right in the middle of the strip and next door to the Crystals,  the high end shopping district.
  • Antonia a girl who knows her hotels, has recommended the Wynn Hotel, I took a look and it is gorgeous too.
  • I love the Bellagio as you really feel the Las Vegas buzz.

What to do

  • On the first day we went to Town Square , it is outdoor square where you can shop and eat,  it has a ride along train and fantastic playground. As a lot of Las Vegas is indoor it was nice to escape here.
  • Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden at the Mirage, this again was outdoors and we took the children swimming with the Dolphins and they got to see the famous white tigers.
  • Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay ( you walk through a door to this hotel from the Four Seasons) . The children loved it
  • The highlight for Archie and Luella was the Discovery Children’s Museum, another tip from Antonia. It is the best childen’s museum I have ever been too.
  • The M&M museum is fantastic and they have a great film and you can get the personalized M&Ms.
  • Visit the Bellagio, we ate in the Italian Circo and watched the fountains  from there.
  • Also the gondola trip in the Venetian  is cheesy but fun.

Shopping

  • The shopping is the best in the world, I recommend visiting the above mentioned Crystals for high end purchases. The Venetian Hotel has great shopping including Barneys ask for Ramon in the shoe department and the Bellagio has a great Chanel store. The Neiman Marcus Store is fantastic ask for Lori in the shoe department and Carmela in Ladies Fashion.
