Las Vegas may be home to the famous Strip, glittering lights and plenty of world-class casinos, but the Las Vegas Springs Preserve showcases 180 acres of stunning natural landscapes and is the perfect place for travelers and families who want to escape the urban landscapes and spend a day in the rugged outdoors.
Visitors can explore winding nature trails, check out a stunning desert botanical garden, and venture into a natural wetland habitat. An informative museum and historic photo gallery also offer plenty of context for the dynamic plants and unique ecosystems that are a part of this prime family destination.
Las Vegas Springs Preserve is located about three miles west of Downtown Las Vegas at 333 South Valley View Boulevard. It is open daily from 10 am until 6 pm. General admission tickets cost $18.95 for adults and $10.95 for children. Senior and military discounts are available.
