 And yet, it seems like it’s a city meant only for adults. So many of the activities in Las Vegas are 21+ events. If you’ve been searching for Las Vegas houses for sale and find yourself wondering if it’s even worth it to move there with kids, don’t worry!

 Las Vegas is a desert, and with the hot climate comes the need to cool off. Luckily, there’s Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas, a water park with 25 slides and more than enough to keep any kid entertained for hours. It closes during the winter, but never mind that; some quick online research will tell you if your time in Las Vegas will allow you to visit. Of course, when you live there, you never have to worry about that!

 The Bellagio Conservatory

 Next up is the Bellagio. Wait a minute, I thought you said these were for kids! Well, the Bellagio, if you’ve ever laid eyes on it, is a pretty big place. It isn’t all a casino. One feature of this amazing property is the conservatory that you can find off in one section of the building.

 The conservatory and botanical gardens are located under a glass roof and feature thousands of fantastically colorful plants and flowers. The designs of the greenery change with the seasons, so you’re unlikely to see the same thing twice. You can walk into a fantasy land of gnomes and other creatures one day and enjoy a Japanese garden the next time. It’s a wonderful and free place to take the family.
