Las Vegas is our gateway to Lake Powell, so we spend a day-and-a-half there. If you’re 10, or traveling with a 10-year-old, Vegas is irresistable.
In 36 hours we: did the Rim-Runner, bumper cars and arcade games at Circus-Circus. Then we lounged by the Four Seasons garden pool, moved next door to the Mandalay Bay to play in its wave pool and float in its lazy river. Then it was dinner under a beautiful–but fake–Italian sky at the Venetian, serenaded by gondoliers and street musicians. We wound up the day watching the Blue Man Group poking fun at convention. The next morning, we swung through the Shark Reef to admire all the underwater predators there. Then, on to Zion! Here’s a 10-year-old’s view of Vegas–which she loves!
