The Lied Museum is great for kids who love interactive exhibits. The museum is perfect for anyone looking to give their kids an alternative to the arcades and motion machines at most casinos.

Springs Preserve

My kids easily spend an hour at the play area and then another hour in the gardens, that does not include visits to the ORIGEN center or the various interactive exhibits. The preserve is 15 minutes from your strip hotel room and worth a visit.

Red Rock Canyon

Hike, explore, run, race and get dirty in Red Rock Canyon a quick 20 minute drive from the Las Vegas strip. Kids will love cimboing the sandstone rocks and the alternative to the make believe of Las Vegas is easily accseble in the natural beauty of Red Rock canyon.

Ride the roller coaster, beat your kid at laser tag or challenge a friend to racing at Daytona. The Coney Island Emporium at New York/New York Resort and Casino is huge and it is a great way to spend an afternoon.
