Visiting the Las Vegas Area
Visiting Las Vegas never sounded better than it does this spring and early summer. It’s not too hot for a stroll down the legendary Las Vegas Strip any time of day, and those mild temperatures mean Sin City’s surrounding outdoor playgrounds are primed for adventure as well. Whether looking for a wild time with friends or sticking to the family-friendly side, it’s not hard to find the fun in Las Vegas this time of year.
What happens in Las Vegas usually happens at night, so take the day time to explore nearby outdoor destinations like like Valley of Fire State Park and Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Before summer brings the heat, explore Valley of Fire highlights like Atlatl Rock and the White Domes, or enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding, and boating in and around Lake Mead.
The arts are alive in nearby Henderson and numerous spring and summer events serve as proof. On the first Friday of each month the Arts Factory in Henderson opens up to showcase the works of more than 100 artists. It’s an evening of art, food, drinks, and more.
