LAS VEGAS- CIRCUS CIRCUS
2800 Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas
Our stay at Circus Circus was a perfect mix of typical Las Vegas
fare and child-friendly extras. The hotel room was
clean and modern; adjoining rooms were offered. Prices
were very reasonable. There are a variety of restaurants;
most of which were family friendly. Our children thoroughly
enjoyed the Midway with its variety of carnival-style games and an
arcade. In the middle they feature circus acts about
every half an hour. Great variety! If you are
looking for something more, try their Adventuredome Indoor Amusement
Park. Pay per ride or get an all day pass to enjoy the
day at this 5 acre domed park.
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-
Adjoining rooms were a plus for the family. Though Vegas is
usually known for it's adult-oriented activities, Circus Circus
allows a family to enjoy a visit to Vegas.
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS- Breakfast is not included.
Check in was very hectic and disorganized.
