Exploring Old Town Vegas with kids

I’ll admit, exploring Old Town Las Vegas with kids was not top of my Vegas itinerary. Old Town and Fremont Street has a reputation for sleaziness. For stag dos and hedonism and yes, that side does exist but it is possible to avoid if you fancy a visit with kids. In fact the area has

Visiting RAF Cosford with kids, a fab, free day out.

Isn’t it amazing when a place really surprises you? That’s exactly how we felt about our visit to the Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford.
