Things to do in Nevada with kids

In Nevada, you can hit the jackpot without even stepping foot in a casino…of course, we mean the family FUN jackpot!

Get out into the stunning natural wonders with tours such as Pink Jeep Tours which take you through magical places like Sedona and Death Valley.  State Parks such as Lake Tahoe and Washoe Lake offer incredible beaches, hiking trails, horseback riding and even water skiing!

Dem be a Gold Rush in these parts! Nevada of course was a key player in the Gold Rush, and kids will love stepping back in time with places like Bonnie Springs Ranch Old Town! Watch out for those gun fights!

Water parks a-plenty with thrills like Cowabunga Bay Water Park, animals abound with attractions like Roos N More Zoo, and active kids get ready with excitement like Vegas’ own Slotzilla Zip Line!  Good luck with that one!

Nevada is so much more than just bright lights and casinos. There is an entire state filled with incredible scenery and fascinating attractions to explore - AND it’s a great place to visit with kids! Win that jackpot!
