Las Vegas has long been an adult playground but in recent years, Sin City has unveiled quite a lot of family-friendly things to do, starting at McCarran International Airport where there's a playground at the D gates of the new terminal.
There's also The Container Park in Downtown Vegas which boasts a treehouse playground with a 33-foot slide; The Springs Preserve, a sprawling nature and science center off the strip; and of course, a few awesome attractions on the Strip itself, like the High Roller Observation Wheel and the new Hershey's World candy shop.
But down at the Trump Las Vegas, they want you take the kids camping--inside the hotel. Trump's new Glamping package includes two nights in a penthouse suite, monogrammed Trump Kids sleeping bags, Marmot tents, s'mores personally delivered by the hotel's chef, a planetarium projector for constellation counting, a flashlight, glow sticks, and a fire burning...on a channel on the living room HDTV.
For parents, their camping tools involve a chilled bottle of Trump Blanc de Blanc, monogrammed sleeping masks and organic bath toiletries from the The Spa at Trump. What? No, Trump Vodka? You're fired.
The cost of the two-night package starts at $1,400 and will include a donation to The Eric Trump Foundation, benefitting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. To book the package, go here. Just FYI: the tent, robe and sleeping bag are available for purchase, otherwise, you'll have to return them at check-out.
Not keen on glamping at the Trump? Booking one of the hotel's regular rooms will suffice too. That's because all rooms come with mini-kitchenettes and large bathrooms. Upgrade to a suite and you'll get even more space and a bigger kitchen where you can make real meals for the family. Best of all, the hotel is non-smoking. It also doesn't have a casino, which might bum you out but is better for the kids.
Rates for a superior room in mid-November start around $175 on the weekend. A one-bedroom suite is only $244 a night while a two-bedroom penthouse suite is $699 a night.
T+G Tip: When staying at the Trump Las Vegas, ask for a room facing the the Strip. Not only are the views better but you'll avoid hearing the train chugging behind the hotel in the middle of the night.
