It’s no surprise that the Mirage is one of the best hotels in Las Vegas for families traveling with teens and tweens. The resort offers a convenient mid-Strip location, family-friendly activities, and numerous dining options. Gather the family, pack your bags, and head to the Mirage to experience some of the Strip’s most memorable attractions.
The fun starts at check-in, where you’ll be greeted by a large saltwater aquarium filled with colorful fish, located on the wall behind the front desk. After you check in, walk through the resort’s large atrium where you’ll find water features and lush plants. Be sure to pause along the pathway in the center and snap a photo or two with the whole family.
Perhaps the most impressive family-friendly attraction at the Mirage––and in Las Vegas, for that matter––is Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Begin your visit by saying hello to the resident bottlenose dolphins. Watch the dolphins swim and play before heading down the ramp to the observation rooms that allow you to get a truly unique view of the animals’ underwater home. Continue by visiting the secret garden, where you’ll find white tigers, leopards, and the impressively noble-looking white lions.
After you’ve bid farewell to your new animal friends, it’s time to refuel with a quick bite at one of the resort’s family-friendly restaurants. A great option for burger connoisseurs is BLT Burger. Start with the fried dill-pickle appetizer before sinking your teeth into a juicy burger, like the American Wagyu, which is topped with brie, spinach, truffle oil, and portobello mushrooms. Traveling with a vegetarian? Never fear! They can opt for the veggie falafel sandwich.
Before you end your day at the Mirage, you’ll want to head outside to watch as the resort’s famous volcano dramatically erupts. The iconic fiery performances takes place nightly.
After a busy day at one of the best hotels in Las Vegas, you’ll be ready to retreat to the peace and quiet of your guest room. Take in the colorful views of the Las Vegas Strip before hitting the sack. After all, you’ll need your rest. With so much to see and do in Las Vegas, another fun-filled day awaits.
