Most people labor under the fallacy that Las
Vegas equals liquor and the dice, and has little
to offer anyone else. However, you might be
surprised at the significant percentage of the
tourist influx into the Sin City that comes for
clean fun and family outings.

Casino resorts packed with dealers
furiously managing gamblers intently eyeing
the quirks of lady luck alone do not define
the landscape of Las Vegas. The city boasts
of several hotels that beckon tourists on
their Las Vegas vacations to have a superb
time with their families.
There are several Vegas hotels that may be
characterized as family-oriented. However,
the three that particularly draw hordes of
visitors regularly are the Mirage, the Monte
Carlo, and the MGM Grand. Let’s briefly
mention the essential attraction and delight
of each of these three homes away from home.
The complex at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas
is an enchanting mix of abundant foliage,
pretty flowers, an island linked by bridges,
five swimming pools, three whirlpools, and a
river. You can rent a raft for surfing the
river for a nominal sum.
There are three swimming pools, a whirlpool
and a children’s pool in the Monte Carlo.
Though not as huge as the pool at the MGM
Grand, the Monte Carlo is a pool that would
excite the kids on their Las Vegas vacations
The pool at the Mirage is interesting in
that it is actually a chain of pools
interlinked together by means of bridges.
The pool is conveniently located a brief
walk away from the elevators.
A practical tip on Las Vegas tourism from an old
hat at the Las Vegas pools ought to wind this up
well. For one, while you are ordering a drink,
either specify its size, or ask for a small size.
The waiters are perhaps schooled to get a guest
the largest size of whichever drink they ask
