Las Vegas for the young

We have a 9 year old and 7 year old children and I'm wondering what they can enjoy in LV. We are not gamblers so we don't even care about the casinos. I heard the shows are really good. Any tips on attractions for children. They like to swim so does anyone know hotels with the best swimming pools?

he means that you are about to get slammed with comments like, "take your kids to disneyland-vegas is NOT for kids". Search "kids" on this forum and read the posts. The town, in all honesty is a playground for adults. There are many other better options for family vacations if you have the choice.

I agree with leo21. That is a good site. The book "Vegas for Dummies" also has sections about traveling to Vegas with kids.

Since you dont gamble, look at VEGAS.com

Line up the shows for afternoon an evenings.

Swimming and walking in the mornings.

All go to bed at 11.00 PM.

Your title "Las Vegas for the young" will throw people off and you may get less response because they may not be sure that you are talking about kids in Vegas (gasp!).

My suggestion for kids that age is

- Orleans for hotel

- Excalibur for their medeval show

- Luxor for the IMAX theather

After that, do some good research and just deal with the wacky people who post on this topic.

I guess I am one of the "wacky people" who post on this subject. I truly believe Vegas is a great adult vacation destination. It is one of the reasons I go there. I would not take my kids and I do not appreciate having to deal with any one else's. Vegas stopped even trying to appeal to families with children years ago.
