Despite its nickname being “Sin City”, Las Vegas has plenty of family-friendly activities to enjoy even in the midst of a global pandemic. Man cannot live by casinos alone, and there is a wide array of less obvious activities in and around Las Vegas that everyone in your family will appreciate.
Here are the best family-friendly Las Vegas Activities
The Neon Museum
The Neon Museum features signs from old casinos and other businesses displayed outdoors on 2.62 acres. The museum also features a restored lobby shell from the La Concha Motel, which closed its doors in 2004.
Before being showcased at the Neon Museum, the Young Electric Sign Company (YESCO) stored many of these old signs in their “boneyard”.
The signs are historically significant to the culture of Las Vegas. Each of the restored signs in the collection has a story to tell. The majority of the museum is outside, so
The best things in life are free, and hiking with your family is one of them. There are some incredible hikes found within the vicinity of Las Vegas.
Never trust a thought that didn’t come by walking.
Some of the best hikes include:

Lake Mead National Recreation Area provides a variety of water recreation activities in a rugged and picturesque setting. You will need to follow local health areas’ orders, avoid crowding and practice “Leave no Trace” principles, including “pack-in and pack-out”.
