At the outset, family hotels in Las Vegas were not even an afterthought - they simply didn't exist. Las Vegas was an adult's playground, the sort of place you went to get away from pesky things like families and responsibilities. But then there was a change of heart. The city reinvented itself - reshaping its image to be a place that a person could enjoy regardless of age. The main thing that sprouted from this move toward family friendly hotels in Las Vegas was the emergence of the intersection of Tropicana and Las Vegas Boulevard as the hotspot for both parent and child. Now, Las Vegas is a perfect vacation for both young and old, as there is plenty to keep each occupied for weeks at a time.

Most of the family friendly hotels in Las Vegas are located within a few hundred yards of here. It's hard to go into the Excalibur without seeing numerous families, the children enraptured by the visual stimulation as they are amble down corridors of slot machines and craps tables. It doesn't hurt that the Excalibur also has the largest arcade in the city, with enough games to keep children entertained for hours. The casino's commitment to the Renaissance theme also appeals to children, as does its entertaining Tournament of Kings show.

Hardly any of the Las Vegas family hotels come equipped without an arcade. The Luxor and New York New York both use their own to market themselves as family friendly hotels. The Luxor also has a mind-boggling IMAX theater, and New York New York has its world famous roller coaster, both a staple of any child's vacation in Las Vegas.

These three casinos, along with the MGM Grand and Monte Carlo, can also claim to be family friendly hotels in Las Vegas thanks to their proximity to both the Showcase Mall and Gameworks. The former has all sorts of shopping and movie theaters for kids, whereas the latter boasts yet another collection of the best video games known to man.

Las Vegas family hotels are not just relegated to this corner, however. Circus Circus was once the most visible of family hotels in Las Vegas, though its reputation has certainly taken a hit after being surpassed by so many casinos further down the strip. Another popular spot for families is the Stratosphere, which also features a couple rides for children (though they are probably better for the older ones).

Though at the outset it may seem odd to travel with your children to a place renowned for its dedication to sin, the surge of family hotels in Las Vegas showed that it could be marketable location for family vacations. And the ongoing popularity of these hotels only provides further evidence to this fact.
