Las Vegas with kids

This year for my kiddos spring break we went to Las Vegas. I’ve heard that vegas could be fun for families, and with a great flight deal from Frontier airlines, we set out to discover just how much fun it would be!

Flight: $680 for 4 roundtrip adult seats. We checked 1 large bag and each carried on personal items in our backpacks.

Hotel: $286. We used groupon for a 3 night stay at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. And we booked an additional night at the Rio All-Suites hotel, because our return flight didn’t leave until midnight.

Rental Car: $96. We picked up a rental from Enterprise on our last full day to explore the areas surrounding Vegas.

Trip total $1,062 for a family of four for a 5 day 4 night stay in Las Vegas.

Our Itenary:

Day 1

We had breakfast at Hash House a Go Go. The portions there are HUGE. My kids could have totally eaten off my plate. We each wanted something different though. So there was a smorgasbord of breakfast at our table.

Don’t purchase the souvenir tractors. They are clunky and don’t do anything special. We bought two and “forgot” them at the hotel.

We did the most of our walking on this day. My 2 year napped in the umbrella stroller.

We visited the Venetian Hotel. It’s so pretty. We also took a gondola ride. It’s pricey, but the kids enjoyed th experience and the Gondelier made it special for them!

We also went the mall, had sorbet and had just enjoyed walking in and out of the various hotels.


Day 2:

We went to the M&M Factory. Had breakfast at Lucky’s 24/7 Diner in the Hard Rock. And ziplined on Fremont Street.

Day 3:

I went CVS and basically back to bed because of a sinus infection. The boys spent the day at Circus Circus and Adventuredome. And we had dinner at Forte Pizza. Being that I was feeling really crappy, there wasn’t much evidence of this day. But you see the little that I captured on YouTube

Day 4:

Pumped full of antibiotics. I picked up the car and off we went on seriously the most scenic ride ever to Red Rock Canyon.

There aren’t many words to describe the beauty of this place.

Then we stopped for lunch before heading to the Hoover Dam.

Megatron wasn’t there.

We packed a lot into this vacation and would have done a lot more if it weren’t for me needing to take a break.

I’d definitely go back to vegas both with and without kids. I would like to drive to the Grand Canyon the next time we are there.
