"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
July 13th, 2012
Greetings, TTT readers!
When you think of Las Vegas, you probably think of it as the place where everyone goes where they turn 21, and that’s completely justified. Frankly, it seems that most places in Sin City require you to be 21 or older to have a good time, but that just isn’t so! While you may have to wait a few years to play the slots, both you and your parents can have a great time in Vegas at these great all-ages venues.
The Pearl at the Palms Hotel and Casino
If you have a taste for luxury, look no further than the Pearl Concert Theater. This theater boasts one of the best audio and visual set-ups of any venue in the country. With 2,500 seats, it can accommodate a fairly large crowd while still maintaining an intimate environment. You can catch a variety of acts here, from plays and rock concerts to sporting events and stand-up comedy shows.
While some shows do have specific age restrictions, the Pearl itself is open to all ages.
The House of Blues on the Strip
While I did mention SoCal’s House of Blues venues in my previous post, the HOB in Vegas deserves its own review, for no two venues are exactly the same. The Vegas location is a bit more elaborate, as it features special rooms just for meetings and other private gatherings, a few restaurants and bars, and of course, a music hall for concerts. There is often live entertainment in the bar/lounge area, but you are better off foregoing that in favor of a show in the music hall; this space is cleaner, more open, and more appropriate for the younger members of your family.
The Joint at the Hard Rock Café
Last but certainly not least on the list is the Joint at the Hard Rock Café. This may be one of Las Vegas’ oldest venues, but recent renovations have made it one of the best and an absolute can’t-miss! Now twice the size as its predecessor, the new Joint seats 4,000 guests and has better sound, lighting and overall presentation than ever before. Like the Pearl, the Joint is open to all ages with the exception of certain shows that have age restrictions.
Upcoming performances include Fiona Apple, Rise Against and many more!
That’s not all, folks!
There’s a virtually unlimited variety of things to do and shows to see in Vegas, regardless of age. You can ride indoor roller coasters at Circus Circus, jump off the Stratosphere (it’s safe, I promise), catch a Cirque du Soleil show, or just browse the Strip. Whatever you do, you’ll find that New York City isn’t the only city that never sleeps!
