Las Vegas has so much more to offer than gambling. You may have thought that Las Vegas was more of an adults-only destination. That just isn’t the case. There are so many opportunities and activities for families to create memories and spend quality time together in Las Vegas. Read on to discover some of our favorite activities in Las Vegas.
Hershey’s Chocolate World
For the chocolate lovers in your family, Hershey’s Chocolate World, located in the famous New York-New York Hotel and Casino on the Strip is a must-see.

Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Experience

All of this is located conveniently at the beautiful Mirage. In addition to being a wonderful experience, you will be supporting conservation and education efforts that are at the core of Siegfried and Roy’s Mission.
Discovery Children’s Museum
While this museum has “children” in the title, it is fun for all ages. Every day, there is something new to discover. With daily discoveries, S.T.E.M. focused activities, a water world, and so much more, you will not run out of amazing things to do at the Discovery Children’s Museum. Three stories of engagement and exploration will build memories that last a lifetime, and open young minds to the endless possibilities around them.
Downtown Container Park
Off the beaten path, the Downtown Container Park is an innovative space combining shopping, entertainment, play, and dining. The experience is like no other and really has to be seen to be believed. You will find a vast assortment of shops, delicious food options, and a playground. Entertainment is offered year-round and is sure to delight the whole family. Come for the shopping, food, and live bands. Stay to see The Mantis. She is 40 feet tall and 30 feet long, and each night at sunset shoots flames into the night when awakened by a drum circle.
