Fall is a great time to visit Las Vegas. The summer heat is in the rear view window, and the city, like the rest of the country, is getting into the Halloween and autumn spirit.

And while many people still think of Vegas as Sin City, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Vegas is full of family-friendly attractions and events that all members of your family can enjoy.

If you’re thinking of visiting the City of Lights this fall, here are some fun family things to do in Las Vegas.

Springs Preserve Haunted Harvest

A spooktacular time is guaranteed for the whole family at Springs Preserve’s annual Haunted Harvest event. Take the kids trick or treating through the enchanted “Bootanical” Garden, venture through the hay maze, and try your luck at a carnival game.

The scare factor is on the very tame side so even the smallest members of the family can enjoy the festivities. Live entertainment, a spooky train ride, food vendors, and a petting zoo round out the attractions to partake in through October 28.

Las Vegas Balloon Glow

The northern Las Vegas sky will light up for the first annual Las Vegas Balloon Glow at Craig Ranch Regional Park from October 24—27. Attendees can take a tethered balloon ride and visit food and retail vendors.

Of course, the best part of the event is watching dozens of colorful hot air balloons illuminate the evening. Bring a coat or jacket as the desert air can get chilly at night.

Moapa Valley Corn Maze

Although Moapa Valley Corn Maze is located an hour away from Las Vegas, the drive is worth it for a fun-packed day that includes a cow train, pig races, zombie paintball, zip line, the state’s tallest swing set, and more. To keep everyone sated and happy during the long car drive, pack some healthy snacks for kids for the trip.

Then there’s the infamous giant corn maze which offers plenty of twists and turns as families navigate their way through it. Fearless family members can venture into the haunted corn maze at night, if they dare.

Bellagio Conservatory Harvest Display

Floral artists and horticulturalists show off their creative arrangements of pumpkins, cornucopias, squash, flowers, and other seasonal plants at the Bellagio Conservatory’s Harvest Display.

You and your kids will be delighted by the magical landscape which is transformed with a new theme each season. In the fall, the entire 14,000-square-foot space houses waterfalls, leaf arches, and even two 25-foot tigers made of yellow lentils, red and black cargo rice, and caraway seeds. Best of all, admission is free.

Don’t forget to visit the Enchanted Talking Tree which is also made entirely of plant materials. The Harvest display runs through November 30 before being made over into a winter wonderland for the holiday season.
