Viva Las Vegas! Don't be put off by its moniker as the "City of Sin" - Las Vegas has lots and lots on offer for children (think: erupting volcanoes and gliding gondolas), without a single slot-machine or tequila slammer in evidence.
Chic lodgings, stunning desert scenery, fabulous (largely child-friendly) dining, pools galore, fabulous vintage shopping and year-round sunshine make Palm Springs a hot family destination.
Strap on your seat belt, grab a map (or a map app), turn up the tunes, and head off into the wide blue yonder.
Sydney is a city exploding with great places to eat and drink, beaches that are world-famous for a reason, festivals that are fun-filled and often free of charge, and a glittering harbour at the heart of it all.
