  4. Las Vegas is insane, there are so many shows to see! I went to see Blue Man Group in Boston years ago and loved it, so I definitely agree with your pick! I would love to see Cirque du Soleil and David Copperfield though, what a legend!

  5. Las Vegas does have a lot to do. They really did a great job reinventing themselves a few years ago. It seems like it has something for every for everyone. You can have a blast even if you don’t like gambling.

    • You’re right, Vegas really has reinvented itself over the years, and we have found it to be a fun trip for the kiddos (and for us!) It is such a unique place with so much to offer that none of us can find in our own home towns. You know?

  6. What amazing shows! Sometimes I feel a bit envious when I read about places that have so many child friendly events 😉

  7. Thanks for the great list. Really love the graphs, they’re so helpful!
    There’s so much to do in Vegas, it’s always tough to decide where to spend your time!

  8. Hi, How strict is the 5 year old age limit for some of the shows. I have a daughter who will be 4.5 years old daughter. She is tall:)



  9. great list. I was thinking we’d do blue man group (kids will be 5 and 8) but now i’m leaning more towards a magic show. Love the graphs, too!

    • Thanks Katie! If you want any other advice or have any questions, just let me know. If you end up staying at Mirage, Terry Fator would be fun for 5 and 8 year olds. It’s not magic, but ventriloquism is kind of like magic in itself! ~Amanda

  10. Would love to take the kids to Vegas. Maybe. They might be a little too wild there and they’re chaotic enough at home 😂
