You might be considering the idea of spending Thanksgiving in Las Vegas with the kids and really why not? Las Vegas affords you an affordable vacation and what family does not benefit from a little time together around the holidays. Also, keep in mind that you can spend time with the kids instead of in the kitchen at Thanksgiving.
Las Vegas is one of those places where you might feel a little guilty for bringing the kids along , but at some point in your life you realize that if you want a vacation the kids have to be included as well. There are some options for Kids in Las Vegas so pack up and get ready to go. With plenty of attractions, pools and arcades it is possible to have a family vacation in a city that is designed for the hedonistic behaviors of adults. All it takes is a little planning and a sense of what you want from your Las Vegas vacation with kids.

Las Vegas can be appropriate with children as long as you realize that it's really not a good idea to go cruising the Las Vegas strip with your kid in a stroller. I see people do it all the time and I can't believe that some parents do it. Spend some time at the family attractions and leave the late night walks to the people who are not towing children along and can afford to stumble along down the sidewalk.
