Bring the Kids to the 10 Best Family-Friendly Las Vegas Hotels

Planning a family-friendly trip to Las Vegas starts with picking the right hotel. Some hotel casinos are themed in ways sure to delights kids, while others are focused on aspects that delight parents, like spacious, well-appointed guest rooms. Kid-friendly amenities at many hotels include attractions that are fun for all ages, like elaborate pools and carnival-style games.

A hotel that's off the Strip is a great choice for a more family-friendly atmosphere, especially at properties near residential areas. At the Red Rock Resort Casino, Resort & Spa, parents will find standard guest rooms and suites, and the property is located close to parks, the Red Rock National Conservation Area, golf, shops and family-friendly restaurants. The resort also has bowling alleys and movie theaters. The Strip, with all its exciting attractions, is only a short drive away.

On the Strip, families will find hotels with pool areas that feature things like lazy rivers, wave pools, and sandy beaches. At Mandalay Bay, the amazing pool can keep the whole family happy, and the large property includes one of the Strip's most popular kid-friendly attractions, the Shark Reef Aquarium.

Budget-conscious families will find deals at the Circus Circus, the Las Vegas hotel with the Big Top theme. Rooms are reasonably priced and an carnival-style midway gives kids an area with games they can play.
