Spring Break Staycation

Southern Nevada is considered one of the world’s top tourist destinations, so why not plan a staycation during next month’s Spring Break? Here are a few ways to fill up your days:

Hometown History: Wake up and head over to the historic Boulder Dam Hotel for a hearty breakfast. Stroll down the hall to the Boulder Dam Museum, where both parents and kids may be surprised to find one of the country’s most engaging history exhibits. With a little backstory, drive down the highway to the Hoover Dam and enjoy a leisurely tour of the engineering marvel. If you still have some energy, visit the Clark County Museum off Boulder Highway to learn about early life in So. Nevada.,, and

Poolside R&R: The bubble doesn’t come off the BC pools until late spring, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bask in the spring sun next to a warm body of water.  Many nearby resort hotels allow access to the property’s amenities as a spa day guest as well as deep discounts for locals. One nearby option is the Loews Lake Las Vegas (soon-to-be Westin), which has a great family-friendly pool with water slide, fountains, volleyball net and a separate white, sandy beach. Parents can enjoy a comfy lounge chair with pool service while the kids get waterlogged.

Ultimate Exercise: There is nothing like hours of jumping to settle down hyper kids. Henderson has two options that will appeal to all ages. Pump it Up offers two rooms of bouncy houses, with open sessions throughout the week. Skyzone is a warehouse with wall-to-wall trampolines where kids can jump, flip and literally bounce off the walls. In addition to pay-per-hour use, there are scheduled activities like dodgeball. and
