Las Vegas revels in its Sin City reputation, but there are still worthwhile stops for families that are either free or inexpensive. Frommer's included the Fountains of Bellagio and the lights of the Las Vegas Strip in its book "500 Places to Take Your Kids Before They Grow Up." If you are planning a trip to the Las Vegas Strip, be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and take water with you or plan to purchase it along the way. It may be challenging to move your vehicle from one part of the Strip to another, so consider parking in one place and focus your plans on that area or use the monorail, which costs $5 for one trip or $12 for a day. Large strollers could be inconvenient on crowded sidewalks and overhead walkways, which are most easily accessed by escalators. Las Vegas is a unforgettable place that offers many fun activities for families. Kids will appreciate that last look at the millions of glittering lights just before they go to bed and leave the city to its more mature pastimes. Las Vegas is fascinating. Where else can you see the landmarks of Paris, New York, Venice, Egypt and more - all on one street? Our family spent a day exploring the Strip during Spring Break and here are our top finds.
