Las Vegas is known for its vast array of casinos, strip clubs, and shows but when you visit Vegas on a short time frame it changes things up a bit. We headed up to Vegas to run in the Spartan Super Race and to enjoy the strip afterwards. Sadly, little did we realize that our poor feet would end up in huge blisters that pretty much wanted us to avoid walking at all costs.

Since we didn’t bring our 5 year old with us and our feet were on fire, we decided to check out Hershey’s Chocolate World to grab him a little gift to let him know that he was thought of. As we were headed that way I found out that Las Vegas actually has 3 worlds, Hershey’s, M&M’s, and Coke so I decided that we should check out all three.

When we walked in there was a bakery in the center of the floor filled with delicious Hershey treats. I wanted a taste of everything! The bottom floor was dedicated to mostly chocolate and the next floors was to more chewy/gummy candies like twizzlers. I would say the gifts were moderately priced but they sadly didn’t have much to offer for kids. We luckily found a Hershey lego race car for Little E and made our way to the next world.

M&M’s World was probably the best world of them all. As soon as you walked in you were great with the vast array of M&M’s colors. Every floor had a different type of gift and something different to offer. There was a section to make your own customized M&M’s, a movie theater, a race car, and lots more! There were gifts of all colors and ages especially kids. I had an option to grab something for my 5 years and 4 month old there.

Lastly we headed to Coke world which was probably the most disappointing of them all. They offered lots of Coke product gear and a small wall of the different Coke options. On the second floor they had a cafe that offered Coke flights for you to try all the different sodas. I will say that is pretty clever and a neat attraction. Other than that, it was all it had to offer.

Overall, the Worlds of Las Vegas were mostly not that enjoyable other than M&M’s world. It was neat to get to see the products and what they had to offer but not something I’d recommend others to visit.

Have you ever visited the Worlds of Las Vegas? What were your thoughts on them?

I giggle sometimes when I realize that my favorite place to take my family on vacation is known to many as “Sin City.” Seriously, there’s a lot to do and see in Las Vegas. When we need a break, I love to pack up the kids and take a trip to the desert. We do a few things on the strip, but we also take the time to enjoy the beautiful vistas in the surrounding Mojave Desert.

1. Maverick Helicopters

Mom, Dad and the kids will be speechless at their first aerial view of the Las Vegas strip. Maverick Helicopters offers a VIP-style tour that no visitor should skip. The pilot, after giving safety instructions and explaining the tour, will pose with your group for photos. In the air, each individual will be fitted with a headset. The tour is completely interactive as the pilot narrates the flight.

2. Bellagio Fountains

It never ceases to amaze me that Las Vegas has 8.5 acres of fountains right in the middle of the desert. These aren’t just any fountains either. Water shoots from 1,214 jets to heights of 460 feet in the air. Waterworks shows run regularly from 3:00 in the afternoon until midnight. This water can dance. Choreographies feature music ranging from the works of Michael Jackson to the crooning of Sinatra.

3. Pink Jeep Tours

Pink Jeep Tours are one of my favorite ways to enjoy the natural surroundings of Las Vegas. When you tire of shows and bright lights, take a day off to get in touch with nature. Pink Jeep Tours will pick you up at your hotel. Then you and the family can relax in style while learning about the amazing geology and biology of the area. Tours are even available to the Grand Canyon.

4. Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Dining options are everywhere in Vegas. A nice steak and a glass of red wine are my favorite Vegas cuisine. Be sure to explore the many dining options during your stay. SW Steakhouse features a water show visible from the dining area. Fiamma Trattoria features affordable but delicious pasta options.

Las Vegas truly has something for everyone to enjoy. The hotel options are seemingly endless and very unique. Gogobot makes it easy to read user reviews so you and your family will feel more comfortable with your purchase. Take a trip with your family here soon. I think you’ll have a wonderful time.
