Las Vegas

Las Vegas in Nevada is known all over the world as Sin City and the "Entertainment Capital of the World." Sure enough, Las Vegas is one of the few places where gambling is legal in the United States, and sure enough, casinos stand side-by-side along The Strip, luring passersby to flirt with Lady Luck at the tables at the slots machines.

Despite this image that Las Vegas has, the city is still a place that can be enjoyed by the entire family, even the small children.
Here are four places in Las Vegas that kids will definitely enjoy seeing.

Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay

Just a short walking distance from Mandalay Bay’s casino is the Shark Reef Aquarium, where anyone can get in close proximity with a shark and even touch the tank where the sharks are in. The Shark Reef is home to close to 1,200 species of marine life, which includes not just sharks but also manta rays, reptiles, fish and many other species. There are twelve species of sharks alone.

The Shark Reef is also the first public aquarium to put on display a Great Hammerhead Shark, a female that was caught by accident in Florida. She was put on display for a year before she died
