Top kid-friendly attractions in Las Vegas

There are a lot of “top” lists when it comes to parents visiting Las Vegas with kids. As a Las Vegas resident of thirty-five years, I’m happy to list some of the top spots for children off Las Vegas Boulevard.

Centennial Hills Park & YMCA:

Located at 6601 North Buffalo Drive in Las Vegas, this is a Vegas parent’s dream. The park has an interactive water-play area, several playgrounds, a fenced dog park, multiple volleyball courts, two soccer fields, and a bountiful farmers’ market held here on a weekly basis. Right next to the park is the YMCA. This building features an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, two gymnasiums, a dance room, fitness center, and an adult wing. If you’re visiting the park then be prepared for a drive. It is about thirty minutes off of the Las Vegas Strip. And, if you are planning on heading for the park between 3 and 6 pm then prepare for gridlock. A lot of hotel employees live in this area and the drive can turn into an hour and a half parking lot between my noted hours of commute.

The Sky Zone Trampoline Park:

Always fun for kids, this park is located on the east side of Vegas. The area can be rough, but parents from all over Las Vegas travel to it because of all the fun and excitement. And, it is a good way to wear the kids out for an early bedtime!

Las Vegas Mini Gran Prix Family Fun Center:

One really inexpensive option for Vegas visitors with kids, the Las Vegas Mini Gran Prix Family Fun Center is located about thirty minutes from Las Vegas Blvd. The pizza is good for kids but parents may want to stick with the salad bar. The facility has a dragon roller coaster that is perfect for little ones. They also have a regular racetrack for older kids and adults, as well as a separate and closely monitored kiddie track for toddlers.

Kiss Monster Mini-Golf:

Don’t laugh! I’m serious, the entire family will love this. Even if you’re not a fan of Kiss, this mini-golf course is a blast! It is close to Vegas but not on The Strip. It is a street over on Paradise road, next to The Hard Rock Hotel. Weddings, kid parties, adult parties, everything happens here! And, you can walk over to The Hard Rock afterwards and get a family meal, on a family-friendly budget, at Pink Taco.

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Appreciate it!

  2. I drop a comment each time I like a article on a website or
    if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
    Usually it’s triggered by the sincerness communicated in the article
    I browsed. And after this article Top kid-friendly attractions in Las Vegas |
    Pitstops for Kids. I was actually moved enough to drop a comment 😉
    I do have some questions for you if you do not mind.
    Is it just me or does it look like some of the comments look as if they are coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I’d like
    to follow you. Could you list every one of all your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook
    page or twitter feed?

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  4. Hi i am kavin, its my first occasion to commenting anywhere, when i read this
    paragraph i thought i could also make comment due to this sensible article.

  5. Early detection and treatment may be needed to protect against damage to the brain and other organs.
    Those who suffer from sleep apnea may appear to just be
    snoring, but in fact snoring is a health issue that shouldn’t be over
    looked. These new beds may also be used with a memory foam mattress to provide superior support for the hips, lower back, and shoulders.

  6. It is no longer sufficient to be a good player with your high school team.

    So practice being quick on your feet and get a few moves that will guarantee you fast breaks.
    Another question that needs to be answered when deciding whether or not to
    use a full-court press is: How do you define success.

  7. Right here is the right blog for everyone who wants to
    understand this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for
    a long time. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!
