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

Solo and So Deserved

Morning Breakfast: When solo you can eat anywhere YOU want. Eat at the bar and have a casual conversation with the bartender, the other solos, watch TV, or spend a few minutes doing nothing but sipping on coffee. Enjoy. 











Summer Vegas

So many people love simply strolling up and down the Vegas strip taking in the sites, I wanted to share a few of those sites from a recent trip.

Let’s just get any concerns or preconceived ideas about this first. I admit, I was a little concerned about going to Adventuredome. Is it clean? Is it old and showing it’s age and is it worth it to go there? Well, I was pleasantly surprised by this area for the kids. It’s clean, well organized, and so much fun! This is cheaper than going to our local fair or another park and my kids has a great time. My kids are 10 and 15. There were rides for them to do together and separately.


We walked to Adventuredome from The Signature which most people won’t want to do in July. If you do, be prepared to stop along the way and take pictures. It’s a wonderful joy watching the kids taking in all thats around them: people, buildings, fancy cars, etc. We even saw a TV show being filmed and got to randomly “walk through”. How co…
