  • Category: Best of
  • 1. Blue Man Group
    Blue Man Group, Las Vegas, Nevada

    The three bald and blue performers have created a type of entertainment that few can duplicate....the most inventive show in Vegas. They immediately draw every member of the audience into their zany brand of visual humor that transcends modern culture and captivates the imagination, start to finish. Well worth the money. It was the highlight of our trip to Vegas - for both the tweens and adults.

  • 2. Tournament of Kings
    Tournament of Kings, Las Vegas, Nevada

    This dinner theater was fun and action-packed. The tweens loved all the action and audiance participation. The acting and story dragged for us adults but it was one of the favorites for the kids.

  • 3. Fountains at Bellagio
    Bellagio Fountains, Las Vegas, Nevada

    Water fountains are set to music. All of us were swept away by this breathtaking union of water, music and light. And, it's FREE!

  • 4. Fremont Street Experience
    Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas, Nevada

    Five city blocks are covered with a canopy of millions of lights enhanced
    by 550,000 watts of sound and special effects - the world's largest big screen TV. Admission is FREE. Awesome show- amazed us all.

  • 5. Shark Reef
    Shark Reef, Las Vegas, Nevada

    This aquarium at Mandalay Bay hotel was great. There was a huge variety of fish and sea creatures. We have traveled to aquariums around the world and our 13 year old felt this was "one of the best"

  • 6. Mirage Hotel & Casino
    The Mirage Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada

    The volcano eruption in front of the hotel was exciting to watch. Our tweens were amazed and perplexed at how they could create fire coming from the waterfalls. FREE!

  • 7. Masquerade Show in the Sky
    Masquerade Show in the Sky, Las Vegas, Nevada

    This Mardi Gras-style show at the Rio Las Vegas is amusing. Huge Floats that one may see at Carnival hang from rails. The floats are ablaze in light and color. Brightly dressed dancers dance to the music as the floats circle the ceiling. There is lots of singing and dancing. The boys thought it was "good" but the adults were truly amused. It's FREE!

  • 8. Caesar's Magical Empire

    The Fall of Atlantis fountain show is located near the Race for Atlantis, in Caesar's Palace. Animatronic figures fight for control of Atlantis in this exciting production. It is action-packed so the tweens liked it. It was somewhat difficult to hear and follow along with the story as the sound system was off but still lots of fun. FREE.

  • 9. Manhattan Express
    The Big Apple Coaster & Arcade, Las Vegas, Nevada

    This roller coaster is not for me but the tweens loved it. Simulating a barrel-roll in a jet fighter, it rolls 180 degrees, hangs 86 feet in the air, then dives back under itself- promising dizzying excitement and white-knuckle thrills!

  • 10. Bellagio's Conservatory & Botanical Gardens
    http://www.vegas4locals.com/freebellagioflowers.html

    Row upon row of exotic plants and flowers weave a glorious tapestry displaying the unique highlights of every season and holiday. The gardens have multiple trains intreciactely meandering through them. The tweens enjoyed watching the trains and following their paths as us adults loved the gardens. FREE.
