Nevada Family Vacation Ideas
Nothing Says Family Fun Like a Nevada Family Vacation.
What could be more family friendly than Nevada as a vacation destination?
You can just picture the scene in your mind, everyone gathered around the blackjack dealer, waiting for that winning hand to be played out.
The kids are happily tossing poker chips in t he air and everyone is listening to the whistles and shouts of patrons who are locked in combat with those one armed bandits.
This is surely the fantasy vacation of your dreams...or is it? Okay, maybe we should back up a bit and start over.
Nevada is still a great place to take the family and there are so many wonderful things to see and do.
Many people are not aware that there is much more to this great state than gambling and casinos.
No matter what ages your children may be you can make this Nevada Family Vacation a trip that no one in the family will ever forget.
Some of the top places in Nevada for holiday visitors and tourists to check out are Boulder City, Carson City, Las Vegas, Reno and of course Virginia City.
For fans of the old 60's television city Virginia City will remind them of the sprawling Ponderosa land owned by the Cartwright family.
However there is a lot of difference in this modern day town and the one that you remember from television.
If you are looking for some fun and excitement you can pack up the family and head for the Lied Children's Museum; Hoover Dam; Circus's Adventure Dome; the National Recreation Area at Lake Mead; Sierra Safari Zoo or the Great Basin National Park.
Many families will be happy to tell you about the great adventurous family vacation ideas that is available at Tahoe State Recreational Area.
You can even tour some of this scenic state by hopping aboard the Nevada Northern Railway.
When your kids ask what kinds of things they can do on vacation it might be easier to list what they cannot do instead.
They will not be able to find a shark in a pond, or an elephant parading in the hotel, but with all of the incredible activities for them to enjoy they will not care if they miss out on these.
Let them know that there are malls to visit, amusement parks to explore and live theatre shows to watch. Golf, tennis, skiing, parasailing, hiking, swimming, water parks, fishing and horseback rides are all part of your Nevada family vacation and the sooner you get started the sooner you can begin this western based adventure of a lifetime.
At Lake Tahoe or Carson City you can combine summer outdoor fun with Shakespeare productions that are presented under a vast canopy of stars.
During the day and evening hours you can ride along trails on horseback and listen to tall tales being spun by real cowboys.
These cities are famous for outdoor fun and you and your family can discover the thrill of the wide open prairie for yourselves.
Visit some of the amazing shows produced by Cirque de Soleil, treat the family to a weekend to a Las Vegas vacation resort or just head for the hills and enjoy some camping.
No matter what type of activities your family members want to participate in while on vacation you are certain to please everyone with your next Nevada Family Vacation.
