Vegas high-wire act
The carnival never stops at kid-friendly Circus Circus Hotel & Casino, just a 15-minute walk from the Las Vegas Convention Center. Located on the north end of the Strip, this hotel is a good value for Sin City, less than 3 miles from Fremont Street in Old Town.
Circus Circus is a playground for every member of the family, with 100,000 square feet of casino space plus trapeze acts in the hotel's Midway. For a change of pace, the Adventure Tours Desk is the place to book a day excursion to the Hoover Dam – about a 45-minute drive.

Variety reigns at the hotel's 8 restaurants, with options ranging from a buffet with kids' pricing to award-winning steaks at THE Steak House. Three outdoor pools and the thrills of Adventuredome, a 5-acre indoor theme park with 25 rides and miniature golf, provide nonstop fun.
Three towers hold over 3,700 updated guestrooms with contemporary decor, flat-screen TVs, and WiFi. For those with a car during their Vegas stay, the hotel offers free self-parking.
