Things to do in and around Centennial Hills

Centennial Hills has a new 110-acre Town Center that claims to be “the largest regional park in the Las Vegas valley.” Town Center features include two dog parks, two lighted soccer fields, ten lighted volleyball courts, a water play area and numerous picnic areas. Convenient shopping, dining and entertainment venues are located at or near the 900,000-square foot Centennial Center.

If you want to be closer to nature (from golf to skiing and everything in between), your favorite activity is within 35 miles of Centennial Hills. You and your family can enjoy:

Painted Desert Golf Club: You’ll want to play your next round of golf at this desert-style 18-hole golf course. It was one of the first Las Vegas courses to embrace and use Nevada desert landscaping. Take your first swing with gorgeous mountain views as your backdrop.

Floyd Lamb State Park:  You’ll love this 680 acre desert oasis that’s teaming with wildlife, lush vegetation, lakes (great for fishing) and views of the Sheep and Spring Mountain Ranges – a far cry from the sights and sounds of the Vegas strip. While you’re there, stop in at the historic Tule Springs Ranch where you can learn about a traditional working ranch and early Las Vegas lifestyle.

Mount Charleston: Just 35 miles northwest of Las Vegas, there’s no reason why you can’t visit this alpine attraction during any season. Your eyes will feast on panoramic views of the Toiyabe National Forest – at 12,000 feet the mountain has the distinction of being the third-highest peak in Nevada. Mount Charleston is also home to a variety of campgrounds with some 180 campsites and 150 picnic areas.
