Epic views of the strip from our room fslasvegas 👀 From the other side of our room we could see over the Mojave Desert and mountains 🏜 #sponsored .
The Vegas strip isn’t a normal street with normal hotels, these buildings are massive attractions and you can walk miles around and between just a few of them 🙈 Walking around Vegas is time consuming and tiring, which can become very uncomfortable in the blistering heat, so where you choose to stay can make a big difference, especially if you have kids!
The Vegas sign is a 15 minute walk from fslasvegas 😱 which was a breeze in Jan with the cooler temps. It is the closest hotel to the famous sign and has access to the best transport links in the City, which are FREE! We’ve stayed on the other side and other end of the strip in the past, which only has access to the chargeable monorail service. It is still a brilliant transport link, but we found that we had to spend quite a bit of money every day, just to reach the shops, restaurants, attractions and other hotels.
While the Four Seasons is next to some of the most iconic hotels on the strip so you’re never far from the action, it’s also right at the start, so it enjoys a quiet position without hundreds of people piling through the door, just to get to the next hotel 🙌🏼
Let’s not forget to mention waking up to this mouth watering breakfast delivered to our room #WakeUpWithFS 🤤 for those days you don’t want to leave the room at all 😆
If you have any Vegas questions, let us know below and we will answer them 👇🏼😍🙌🏼

Last weekend we tackled a more challenging trail and, I tell ya what, our 10-year-old absolutely rocked it! 🙌 At one point we stopped to slow him down and he yelled to get out of the way, that he could do it. And sure enough, he did it. Like a seasoned pro. 🤯
We’re convinced there’s nothing better than watching your kids try something hard and totally nail it. That’s your moment to stand back, in awe, proud of the kid you raised them to be. Ambitious, determined, and strong. 💪
We’re more than ready to roll into another weekend, how about you? 😅

Why travel the world, when you can go to Las Vegas and see it all? 🤷🏻‍♀️😆 and if you’re going to see Vegas, there is no better way than in a helicopter 🚁 Swipe across for a glimpse into our sunset flight over the strip with iflypapillon #sponsored #iFlyPapillon
The kids will tell you this was their fave activity during our visit to the City and it’s super affordable! Prices start at $85 each for adults and $75 each for the kids! It was cheaper to do this than see the show we wanted to see 🙈 and we had free champagne 🥂They had me at ‘Free Champagne’ 😂
And yes, that’s an actual rollercoaster inside a hotel 😂 #onlyinvegas (our kids were not tall enough to ride this, but there is a pretty cool arcade right next to the entrance of this that will totally help you avoid meltdowns 🙈) More to come on visiting Las Vegas with kids! 👀
Me dijeron que si estaba LOCA llevando a los niños a Las Vegas. Que que iba a hacer allá con ellos. Pero siempre he dicho que los niños uno los puede llevar a cualquier lugar!! Siempre habrá que hacer con ellos.
Ahora bien, no les miento hay ciertos factores en Las Vegas que se salen de nuestras manos, como por ejemplo los pintorescos anuncios en las calles de ciertas actividades, el constante enfoque a los casinos etc. pero esta visita a Las Vegas fue por motivos laborales de mi esposo y no es verdad que me iba a quedar trancada con ellos #NUNCA.
Tuvimos la Gracia de NO toparnos en la calle con nada que no pudiese explicarse y que fuese ofensivo nivel 15.
Actividades y cosas que hacer con los niños No faltaron, de hecho nos faltaron días para hacer mas. Descubrí cosas que no conocía en Las Vegas pues la vez anterior que fui fue un viaje de chicas con otro enfoque. Aquí debajo les comparto algunas de las cosas que hicimos y otras que quedaron pendiente por si en algún momento les toca ir a Las Vegas con sus hijos.
🌈Seven Magic Mountain.
🎡Parque De Montaña Rusas del Hotel Circus Circus.
🎢Montaña Rusa mega apera del New York Hotel.
🚀Montañas Rusas extremas en el tope Stratosphere Hotel.

🛶 Góndola Ride en el Venetian.
⛲️Show De Fuentes del Bellagio.
🏟 Show Nocturno (en Las Vegas hay cientos de shows de los cuales la mayoría son familiares ya sea circos, Magia etc).
🦈Shark Reef Aquarium en el Mandalay Bay.
🏢Discovery Children Museum.
🥤🍫 Tiendas Divertidas como la de Coca Cola y Hershey’s.
