If you're thinking of taking a family vacation to Nevada, there are some things to keep in mind. Gambling is legal in Nevada, certain areas of Nevada have legal prostitution, and there have been some brothels in Carson City.
However there are plenty of activities for you to do with your family in Carson City. Because Carson City is known as an old frontier town, there are several "ghost town" settlements where you can see what life was like back in the 19th Century for the pioneers. These are often enjoyable experiences and can teach a good deal to young children. If you plan on gambling while in town, you can take your children to arcades or bowling alleys, which are often located in the same building as the casino for convenience. If you want to get away from all of that, you can head to Lake Tahoe and do some outdoor activities, such as mountain biking, skiing, or fishing.
