Las Vegas With Children: Places To See And Stay

Once known as 'Sin City', Las Vegas has changed; today it's fashionable, friendly, chic and bags of fun. It's a destination offering something for all ages. Parents can shop at designer boutiques, play golf, indulge in fine dining and spa treatments, or try their luck in the casinos. Kids are entertained dawn 'til dusk by rides, exhibits, child-friendly shows and a huge selection of outdoor activities just a stone's throw from the city.

Virgin Atlantic operates a direct route to Las Vegas from Manchester and Gatwick airports. Virgin Holidays offers a range of packages including the family-friendly Excalibur and Circus Circus, or the upmarket (and utterly gorgeous) Encore and Aria.
