7 Things to Do with Dad When Visiting Las Vegas

Happy Father and Son Exploring Las Vegas Together

Going on a trip to Vegas with your dad can be a really great experience. If your dad is into things like sports, drinks, food, and history, then there is something for him in Las Vegas! Read on for things to do with Dad in Vegas and how to plan a trip filled with fun activities and incredible memories.


Bet with Him at the Sportsbook


If your dad is like most, sports are a pretty big deal. What better way to spend a day with Dad in Vegas than at the biggest sportsbook in the world? On top of an incredible experience at Circa | Sports, you and your dad will be surrounded by fellow sports fanatics. Not much beats a 78M pixel screen, 3 floors of sports betting, and an energy that is like no other. Make it even more interesting by placing some bets and seeing who does better – sports betting bragging rights over your dad is one impressive feat.


Connect with Him Over Drinks


A cold drink at the end of the day is what many dads look forward to, and the good news is that Vegas has plenty of drinks to go around. If your dad is into fine whiskeys and other spirits, be sure to check out Legacy Club to have amazing craft cocktails (plus 200 brands of whiskey) and a great view of Las Vegas on its rooftop bar. If he’s more of a laid-back beer guy, Las Vegas has a number of breweries that brew some pretty great beers. Can’t decide on one place? Then the only obvious solution is a Las Vegas bar crawl. Walk around and see which bars Dad likes best.

Take Him Golfing


There might be an unwritten rule somewhere that all dads must love golfing. If your dad falls into this category, Topgolf Las Vegas is a must-visit when in town. With fun golf games to play and some elevated bar food and drinks to enjoy, this is a great bonding experience to have with your dad. If neither of you happens to golf, don’t cross this off of your list of things to do with Dad! Topgolf offers golf lessons and beginner-level games to get you started. Who knows, maybe this will be the start of a new hobby you two share.


Race Him on the Racetrack


Maybe golf is a little too tame for your dad. So why not kick it up a notch and take him to the racetrack? Get your adrenaline going by racing Dad, in an exotic car around the track. If your dad is also a car connoisseur, this is the perfect Las Vegas activity to do with him so you can both marvel at the beauty of the cars. Whether you choose a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, Porsche or a McLaren, or a simple go-kart, this will be one of the most fun things to do with Dad that you’ve done in a while.


Treat Him to a Steak Dinner


You may have grown up with your dad cooking some steak on the grill. Now that you’re in Vegas, it’s time to treat Dad to his own steak dinner. Barry’s Downtown Prime offers some of the best steak in town along with some pretty impressive cocktails, the perfect combo to show your Dad your appreciation. If getting fancied up for a steakhouse isn’t really your dad’s thing, you can still get him a protein-filled meal at Project BBQ. Some chopped brisket here will rival your dad’s backyard barbecuing – but you can still tell him that his is better.

Show Him Some Museums


Just like golf, it’s another bit of an unwritten rule that all dads must be interested in the history of something. Luckily, for you and your dad, there are plenty of museums around Las Vegas that can impress anyone’s interests. Learn about Vegas history at the Neon Museum and Mob Museum, get in some spooks at Zak Bagans’ The Haunted Museum, be quirky at the Pinball Hall of Fame Pinball Museum, or do some classic learning at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. And this is just a taste! Be sure to look into other museums the city has to offer too.


Watch Sports at the Pool with Him


Before you say your dad isn’t a Las Vegas pool kind of guy, consider this first. Does much sound better than lounging in the pool and watching sports on a sunny Vegas day? We thought not. If you want to have a more laid-back day with dad, but still filled with plenty of excitement. The giant screen at Stadium Swim plays the popular games going on, and you can even place bets with Circa Sports while poolside. This is the most dad-approved Las Vegas pool experience, and a great opportunity to relax and hang out with your dad.


As you plan your trip to Vegas with your dad, keep these activities in mind! Las Vegas is the place to be for things to do with Dad, and we’re sure you will have a great bonding experience. Be sure to book rooms at Circa Resort so you can stay in style and comfort while being right in the middle of all the action. Better yet – book a suite so you two can have even more space to enjoy with each other!
