Hotels in Henderson, Nevada, United States of America - your base to discover the city.
Henderson HotelsHenderson may be somewhat overshadowed by the glaring lights of its neighbor, Las Vegas, but after enjoying the clatter of coins in its casinos, the smooth putting on its carpet-like greens, and the beauty of its outdoor Shakespeare productions, you’re sure to leave feeling like you’ve hit the jackpot. The city’s privileged location means it’s just as easy to get to Las Vegas’s glittering Strip as it is to explore the concrete juggernaut of Hoover Dam – where you can also power jet boats across the sprawling Lake Mead.Things to seeLake Mead, and the visitor’s center at Hoover Dam, are just 30 minutes’ drive away, but don’t rush out before you’ve considered Lake Las Vegas - which is even closer to home. This lakeside village’s cobblestone streets and open squares - populated by quaint art galleries and restaurants – gives it a breezy Mediterranean feel. Visit on a Saturday evening to enjoy live music floating over the water, as outdoor jazz concerts swing into life. More lakes, at Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve, give you chance to see hundreds of different bird species enjoying a respite from the dry desert. Spot American Avocets wading through the water, and roadrunners sprinting for shelter between the preserve’s bushy shrubs. You’ll want to try and avoid the water at Revere Golf Course, however, where 2 flush courses are overlooked by rolling red mountains and the flow of a tumbling waterfall. You’ll need to bring your A-game to the tricky courses, but don’t worry if you have an off day – the juicy steak, and seared salmon served in the clubhouse will quickly put a poor scorecard to the back of your mind.Hotels in HendersonWith cheaper hotels than Las Vegas, and a community feel to the place, a stay in Henderson is a refreshing alternative to Sin City.
