View on map

Downtown Las Vegas, just north of The Strip on Las Vegas Boulevard, is neon-drenched Vegas at its best. A sprinkling of motels, casinos, and kitschy wedding chapels edge the palm tree-lined Boulevard until you hit the rejuvenated Fremont Street, where night-time animation shows light up the bustling canopied walkway. Here, you can spot animated favorites like the kicking-leg cowgirl and the cigar-smoking cowboy, and grab an old-fashioned steak dinner at a classic joint. The area is also home to the Downtown Arts District, which hosts a variety of gallery walks and tours in the city’s artistic hub.

Henderson

  • Entertainment
View on map

Henderson is the second largest city in Nevada, just southeast of Las Vegas, and is the perfect base for exploring the nearby national parks of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. The city was ranked by Forbes as “America’s second safest city” in 2011, so if you’re in Vegas with kids, this area is a great choice offering verdant parks, leafy streets, and family-friendly restaurants away from the lively gambling scene. For splashes and thrills, make your way to Cowabunga Bay, a fun-filled waterpark in the heart of Henderson, just east of the Galleria Mall.
