If you are a lover of the great outdoors, and you’re planning some activities to entertain yourself with during your upcoming vacation, consider visiting Henderson, Nevada. Located only 16 miles to the southeast of Las Vegas, Henderson is the second largest city in Nevada and host to innumerable activities to satisfy your urge to get outside. Here are three suggestions of places to go.
The Rio Secco Golf Club receives rave reviews from golf aficionados for its unique topography, exquisite landscaping, and challenging game play. It was designed in 1997 by renowned course designer, Rees Jones, as an 18 hole course with three distinct areas of game play: six holes lying within a desert mountain range, six holes on a plateau with an excellent view of the city, and six holes enclosed within steep canyons. There is a golf pro-shop on location, so no worries if you forget something, and you can enjoy dinner and drinks at the club’s restaurant and bar.
Have an exciting adventure touring the Grand Canyon and other local attractions from the air! Mustang Helicopters has over 20 years experience and-and excellent safety and service record. You’ll be picked up at your hotel and shuttled to their location. There you’ll be welcomed on board an ECO-Star helicopter, where you’ll enjoy a narrated tour. Take the longer Free Spirit tour and you’ll enjoy views of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam, followed by complimentary champagne and snacks once your back on the ground.
Explore hot springs, water falls, and caves via a kayak from River Dogz. Located at the Hoover Dam Lodge, your adventure will begin by picking out a kayak to suit your tastes from the several they have available. You’ll be provided with all the gear that you’ll need including life vests. There is an abundance of wildlife to see during the tour including, if you are lucky, bighorn sheep. You won’t even need to worry about packing anything to eat or drink; it’ll be all provided.
There are just so many different outdoor activities to do in Henderson that narrowing it down to this list of three almost seems like an injustice. There is something for everyone to enjoy if you take the time to look around. So plan to spend at least a weekend in this wonderful city, enjoying everything that the desert has to offer.
