When you think of Las Vegas, you may not think of it as a destination to visit with a toddler, but it is. Las Vegas has so many cool sights to visit in and around it, that we used the city as a base and then took a day trip to see the awe-inspiring Hoover Dam — an engineering marvel, it truly showcases the greatness of mankind’s ability to create. We consider the Hoover Dam a must-see (one of Natasha’s all-time favorites) and as an easy drive from Las Vegas, be sure to add a day to your itinerary to include it on your trip.
It’s historical, a culture all its own, and, oh yes, the food is off the charts! Beijing is where the Ming and Qing Dynasties thrived with imperial families ruling for centuries.
