#1 Taste Your Way Through Downtown With A Sidewalk Food Tour
Want to explore the best of Las Vegas off the strip? Hop on a Sidewalk Food Tour to try famous restaurants and learn about local culture along the way. We will take you to five of our favorite spots including the innovative Lappert’s Ice Cream for delicious treats. As we walk through the neighborhoods, your guide will point out popular sites and hidden gems for you to explore later on. This is a great way to start your trip because you’ll get the inside scoop on Las Vegas!
#2 Have A Thrilling Time At The Stratosphere
If your family members are adrenaline seekers, then you need to head on over to The STRAT and try one of their thrill rides. Take the Big Shot up the 921-foot-high platform for a view of the city before defying gravity on the drop-down. Or, take the X-Scream for a see-saw experience in the sky.
#3 Take Part In Area 15 Interactive Art Show
Another great family reunion idea in Las Vegas is to head to Area15 for an immersive art experience unlike any other. From a cinematic walkthrough of the Illuminarium to advanced virtual reality adventures, you have to see this place to believe it. They’ve even combined a bar and ride together with LIFTOFF so you can enjoy a few drinks while taking in aerial views of Las Vegas.
#4 Discover The World Famous Shark Reef Aquarium
If you have kids in your group, the Shark Reef Aquarium at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino is a great place to explore. Take the family through the aquarium tunnel where you’ll feel like you are swimming along with the sea life. You’ll see exotic animals like turtles, piranhas, and of course, sharks. Want to get up close and personal with some of the animals? The aquarium has added packages where you can feed the stingray and sharks!
#5 Explore Emerald Cave With A Guided Kayak Tour
Your visit to the aquarium might just inspire a trip to get out on the water. Head out to Emerald Cave for a guided tour by Las Vegas Sup Kayak Club. This kayaking adventure takes you through the desert waterways of the Colorado River and brings you to one of the most beautiful places in Nevada, the Emerald Cave. Don’t forget to keep your eye out for local animals like eagles and turtles along the way!
#6 Catch A Show At The Cirque Du Soleil
Las Vegas is famous for its vibrant entertainment and spectacular shows. One of the best ones you can see is the “O” by Cirque Du Soleil in the Bellagio. They have something for everyone in this show. Whether you are there for the acrobats, fire spinners, or synchronized swimmers, this show is an exhilarating experience that all will enjoy. They even have a group of hilarious clowns that add a little humor to the show!
#7 Head To MGM Grand’s Arcade Bar For A Round Of Games
MGM Grand’s Level Up Arcade Bar is an exhilarating spot to challenge your family to a round of games. They’ve got the classics like Pac-Man, the college favorites like beer pong, and the high-tech like a VR room. They also have fun nightly events like a 90s night, line dancing night, and Latin night where different DJs and bands come to play!
#8 Take A Leap With Fyrostity Sky Diving
If you’ve ever wanted to try skydiving, now is your chance. Taking the leap of faith is much more fun with your family. Fyrosity offers an amazing experience and you can even take great photos along the way. This is better for small groups of family members who want to break off and try something different. That way, they can give you great, personalized experiences.
#9 Play A Round Of Rocking Mini Golf
Mini golf is fun on its own but add in some great music and fun neon lights, and it can be totally kick-ass. If your family loves rock-n-roll, you have to check out the Kiss by Monser Mini Golf course. With 18 holes, a live DJ, and prizes, the Kiss Mini Golf course is a great place to spend time with your family and have some fun.
#10 Enjoy Brunch By The Overlook
Need a recovery day after a few nights on The Strip? Head to the Cosmopolitan for brunch at The Overlook. You’ll love sitting back and sipping on bottomless drinks while soaking up the sun near the Boulevard Pool. The colorful venue is also a great place for a family photo op (even if you need to keep your sunglasses on). We’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth over here and seem to crave their french toast almost daily. If you are more of the savory type, then their avocado eggs benedict is about to be your new go-to.
