Vegas For Families: Valley of Fire

Vegas for families: Valley of Fire 
We ventured off to Valley of Fire this trip so the kids could experience it. Remember to go early if you’re like us and go in the summer!  Valley of Fire is about an hour drive with one gas station stop/casino/store. Stop there if you need gas because you won’t have another chance for gas in the valley. You should also stop there because it’s unique, gifts, bathroom, and it’s interesting. 
All of the adults had been before (a first for the kids), but this is a place you can visit numerous times and it is still amazing! There are so many things to see and different trails.  Best parts: I watched the kids climb around ( no pics of climbs because I’m mom-spotting from below every time). We found many lizards because it is still early and the kids hunted for snakes although we have a variety of feelings about finding a snake! We saw the petroglyphs again which is awesome too and elephant rock of course!  For pictures

We always stay near NYNY so our first stop is there. Go grab some late night dinner (or breakfast) at America's in NYNY Casino. We love this place. There's an amazing 3D map of the United States to look at as you marvel at the fact that "I'm in Vegas!" They have breakfast all day, a late night menu, gluten free options, and delicious desserts.

After a good meal, walk right over to the piano bar. Wednesday nights are quiet so sit down and relax at the bar slots, throw in a $20, and have a drink or two.

Leave NYNY out the exit by the Zumanity Theatre and take some pictures there with the Zumanity props. It's fun. This exit …
