Family Fun in Vegas

The Travel Addict is collaborating today with Kendra Thornton for the first time to hear her recommendations for fun in the whole family in Vegas. Kendra appears as a travel expert on television stations across the country to offer travel tips to millions of people every year. She makes regular appearances on ABC, NBC and CW stations in major cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. She has also made special guest appearances on The Nate Show, Fine Living Network, and The Tyra Banks Show.

Kendra’s Thoughts on Las Vegas Family Friendly Entertainment:

Travel to new and familiar places is a hobby of mine that I have done since I was a little girl. It gives me great joy to visit various places around the United States. One of my favorite places that I love to visit with my family is Las Vegas. Here are some of my top places to see when I visit Las Vegas with my family.

Rolling Roller Coasters

Our children love to ride the rails of various roller coasters. Therefore, we visited the Adventuredome in Circus Circus. The Canyon Blaster is an awesome ride that features corkscrews, loops, twists and turns. The El Loco ride is thrilling to our children, but it was too adventurous for my husband and me. One of the benefits of this facility is that it is indoors.

Golf for Everyone

Although my husband loves to golf, we decided to do some golfing that everyone can enjoy. Therefore, we decided to go mini golfing. At Monster Mini Golf, people can play this fun sport while enjoying the theme featuring the American rock band KISS. It was great to see giant guitars and a huge head of Gene Simmons that golf balls go in. It was an experience all of us enjoyed.

Fins and Swims

Both of our children enjoy sea life, but like sharks most of all. When we heard that people could swim with these amazing creatures at Mandalay Bay, we jumped at the chance. This facility is known as “North America’s only predator-based aquarium.” I certainly agree with that statement. Words cannot begin to describe the feeling I felt as I entered the shark-infested tank with my family. Our experience lasted for 45 minutes, and it seemed like we were in the tank for about 5 minutes. I was not very concerned about our safety, since everyone had to wear chainmail. While we were waiting our turn to swim with the sharks, we visited various exhibits featuring animals like moray eels, piranhas, jellyfish and golden crocodiles.

Las Vegas provides families with many experiences that are unforgettable. The key is to be adventurous in trying something new. With so many places to stay and things to do, each experience is different than the last and sites like Gogobot make it easy to plan your trip. All of us love to visit this great area, and my children keep asking when we will be going back. I hope we will be going back quite soon.
