This grown-up hot spot is also surprisingly kid-friendly
Las Vegas isn't all about bachelor parties, gambling and drinking so much that what happens in Vegas hopefully didn't happen at all. Sin City may not feel like the obvious choice for a family vacation, but there are lots of activities for families
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition
View artifacts that tell the story behind the Titanic’s short journey from construction and destruction to eventual recovery. Walk her decks, peer into her cabins and meet her passengers and crew. This exhibition features numerous items that were recovered from the Titanic, including luggage, the ship's whistles, floor tiles from the first-class smoking room, and an unopened bottle of champagne with a 1900 vintage. View a piece of the Titanic’s hull, a full-scale re-creation of the Grand Staircase as well as a newly expanded outer Promenade Deck, complete with the frigid temperatures felt on that fateful April night.

Adventuredome at Circus Circus
The Adventuredome is a great place to go for your family to let off some steam, with rollercoasters, FX Theatres, rock climbing, and even rides for the smaller people among you, such as a small ferris wheel and carousel. The carnival games are a cheap and fun way to entertain the kids on a family vacation to Vegas.
Pinball Hall of Fame
Located close to the Strip, the Pinball Hall of Fame is a standalone museum dedicated to all things pinball - and nothing but pinball - for 10,000 square feet. This is the world's largest pinball collection and is a perfect child-friendly way to explore the offbeat aspects of Las Vegas. There are some vintage gems from the 1950s available for you to play. However, there are no pizes or tickets to be collected here - all money made goes to charity.

There is something for everyone to experience and learn at the National Atomic Testing Museum. Discover how natural and man-made radiation is tracked and measured; learn how to survive an atomic blast; and experience a simulated atmospheric bomb blast.
