The Best Family-Friendly Spots in Las Vegas

A friend thought of writing about favorite places to visit and encouraged me and other bloggers to pitch in, this way, we are able to share our experiences and learn about other culture. Below is Kendra’s post about her favorite places to go in Las Vegas. Enjoy!

 

Las Vegas hasn’t always had the best reputation. While it is indeed rich in indulgent splendors, there is also a lot of good, clean family fun awaiting you.

 

Become Tiger Woods

When my husband and his friends attended the Butch Harmon School of Golf, they were thrilled. As the name suggests, Butch Harmon, the swing coach for Tiger Woods, operates this area of the Rio Secco Golf Club. Although the staff working there teaches most of the classes, Mr. Harmon does give lessons in person for three days out of the year. If you purchase a stay at Caesar’s Palace hotel, you’ll have the option to sign onto this activity, along with free transportation. This is a wonderful present for your husband or boyfriend, and it provides you with a reason for a girls’ day out!

 

Interesting and Innovative Museums

If you came to Las Vegas to take in more culture, you won’t be disappointed. This city boasts numerous museums to peruse, some of which have thought outside the box. The Children’s Discovery Museum is my kids’ favorite, but I really liked downtown’s Neon Museum. This outdoor venue is made to look like junkyard for the creative, and it features long ramps, walkways and stairs that meander around glowing examples of Las Vegas’ neon past. The National Atomic Testing Museum, a mere 65 miles from the original testing site, is a great destination for those interested in science and history.

 

Play Mini Golf Like a Rock Star

My kids really enjoy miniature golf; so taking them to new courses is always a blast. Myrtle Beach may have its dinosaurs and pirates, but they certainly don’t have KISS. Monster Mini Golf in Las Vegas is home to a KISS-themed course, and is intended to be a salute to one of the most famous bands in America. Admission will get you 18 holes of glow-in-the-dark, KISS-based mini-golf mayhem. Putt your ball through enormous electric guitars, and even into a 12-foot replica of Gene Simmons’ head!

 

Unleash Your Inner Chowhound

If you’ve ever wanted to see if you’ve got what it takes to eat competitively, then you’ve come to the right place. Grab your appetite and head to the BRAND Steakhouse in the Monte Carlo. For $250, you’ll receive a 120-ounce steak, two sauces and a side. It’s a lot of money, but there’s a catch: If you can eat it all, it’s free! Just a short walk beyond the BRAND Steakhouse, you’ll find another deliciously meaty challenge in the form of an eight-pound cheeseburger. It’s always a riot to watch people try to put away so much food, and you have to admire their determination.

 

Las Vegas is truly a unique place with one of a kind casinos and world-renowned hotels. With so much to see and do, sites like Gogobot make it easy to plan your trip and feel more comfortable before you head out to Las Vegas.
