Las Vegas has changed a lot over the years. What was once a playground just for adults, now boasts attractions and activities for the whole family. We put a list together with some of our favorite family-friendly activities, attractions, and locations in Las Vegas.
Our Pick for the most Family-Friendly Locations on the Las Vegas Strip
The LINQ Promenade
First up, is our pick for the most family-friendly destination. The LINQ Promenade offers the most family-friendly options, all in one place. Plus, we love the atmosphere all along The LINQ Promenade. It’s just off the Las Vegas Strip, but with only pedestrians, it’s easier to explore. The fountains, greenery, bright colors, and great retail spaces offer lots of different options for families.

Family Friendly Travel in Las Vegas
Las Vegas Monorail
We can’t forget one very important family-friendly option in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Monorail is proud to help families get around the Las Vegas Strip fast and hassle-free. For what may seem like a simple transportation solution to adults, it is an experience all on its own to our younger riders.
Children five and under ride free. Once you’ve purchased your ticket, simply carry little Johnny through the faregate. Strollers are always welcome (we recommend using one of our handicap-friendly faregates)!
All of our Monorail stations have accessible elevator service. Just be sure to place your stroller in the locked position for the duration of the ride! If you need additional assistance, look around for one of our friendly staff members. They will be happy to help or answer any questions you might have!
