Out and About in Henderson
If you're traveling with the kids, many hotels in Henderson are child-friendly, and the city boasts a number of attractions that are fun for the whole family. Spend a day at Cowabunga Bay Water Park lounging on the lazy river, splashing in the wave pool, and hurtling down eight water slides. On a romantic vacation for two? Visit Lake Las Vegas—a Venetian-inspired village where you can take a gondola cruise and browse upscale boutiques. Spend time outdoors with a walk or bike ride along some of Henderson's 23 miles of trails. The Ethel M Botanical Cactus Garden and scenic Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve are also top outdoor destinations. If you prefer your walks to involve pars and birdies, make a tee time at one of Henderson's seven excellent golf courses. History buffs should head to the Clark County Heritage Museum to see a timeline of Nevada going back to the ice age, along with historic buildings and vintage railroad cars. After, take a historic walking tour of the Water Street district.
Eating and Drinking
Combine sightseeing with eating and drinking when you take a tour of Henderson's Artisan Booze District, comprising of breweries, distilleries, a wine-making school, and a chocolatier. For fine dining, go to Lake Las Vegas to enjoy a glass of wine at a bistro, then stroll along the cobblestone streets to another chic restaurant for dinner.
