Everyone knows that when it comes to fun, glamour, and extravagance, no other city beats Sin City. But we’ve also got sophistication, quiet streets, and sister cities – like Henderson. If you’ve had enough of the chaos of The Strip, check out these awesome, fun things to do in the City of Henderson!
Things to Do in Henderson
Clark County Heritage Museum
At the Clark County Heritage Museum, you can take in Clark County’s history, study old mining objects, and get a great sense of the past. Look around at old gaming machines, cars, railroad parts, and more! Just 20 minutes from Vegas, this awesome museum is sure to surprise and delight!
Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa
Makeup treatments! Fitness Center! Whirlpool! All of these make up the full package that comes with your visit to Henderson. If you’ve got beauty-plus-fun on your mind, visiting the Lake Las Vegas Resort Spa should be on your list. You can get a delicious lunch, luxuriate in the spa, and then pamper yourself with manicure treatments and more.
Lion Habitat Ranch
Located on Bermuda Road, this 26 year-old ranch is home to lions, giraffes, and other animals. Unlike at a zoo, where you only get to look, here you can get up close and personal with the animals! Feed the giraffes or lions, or even host a party in the Sanctuary’s event space! You can also take a behind the scenes tour and watch a session between a lion and the trainers.
Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ
Also noteworthy, Henderson is home to some much loved, super delicious American fare, and Lucille’s is the place. From pork sandwiches to shrimp, fried okra, to burgers and expertly made BBQ, this eatery does not disappoint. With a fun, industrial style atmosphere, decked out with neon signs, you’ll be in the BBQ spirit, no doubt.
The District at Green Valley Ranch
Casino access, great food, movies, and outdoor shopping – what more could you ask for? Finally, if you’re in Henderson, make sure you check out The District, where you’ll find boutiques, designer-wear, restaurants, and more. In the Casino, pick up a player’s card and kill some time on the slots or at the table. And, bonus: go to the top of the parking garage and take a look back at the beautiful city of Las Vegas. It’s an incredible view.
