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.
