They do have pedal boats to rent. There were lots of big fishes but some reason we didn't catch any. It has a very romantic feel especially at night.

A monument to ill-timed opportunism, the history of the Lake Las Vegas “development” is interesting to piece together. Folks trying to make a killing in real estate “development” got killed themselves when “The Great Recession” “hit them when they were most vulnerable.” Bankruptcies, reorganizations, lawsuits, etc. This resulted in a reported and sometimes observable lack of take-up of commercial space,...

Lake Las Vegas has had a lot of ups and downs, but with some excellent restaurants, like Sonrisa Grill, the atmosphere adjacent and walkways around the lake are a great way to get away.

Beautiful getaway that is nearby as a local Las Vegas resident. We've been going there for about 15 years for short trips. I hope the economy turns around to help out the village that is pretty deserted although still beautiful.

We took our good friends and they never knew it was there. A lot of people haven't a clue about Lake Vegas. My husband and I stayed right on the lake on our 20 wedding anniversary. When it was the RITZ Carlton Hotel. We got a sweet right on the lake. Some or their suites go out in the lake... More

My husband, sister and I took a short day trip from Las Vegas to Lake Las Vegas. We spent the afternoon strolling the Italy inspired streets. Many fun sidewalk bars, eateries and shops are a fun diversion from the hustle of the strip. You can rent non motorized water vehicles at a public dock. It is a beautiful place, however... More

Casino closed down. Most shops closed and vacant. Had a lobster pizza joint; coffee shop; Irish pub; Mexican restaurant; and a few other places open. Had paddle boats one could rent and take out on the lake. While it looks like a ghost town it may be rounding the bend of survival. Hear the HOA fees will give you a... More

Folks, don't bother. My husband and I decided to see if Lake Las Vegas improved since our last visit. A few years ago we went out to see 4th of July fireworks that lasted 2 minutes. Well, it has gotten worse. There was 1 shop open and maybe 2 places to eat in the Village. On a Sunday afternoon we... More

The last time we were here we were looking at real estate. The prices for property were attractive but the HOA fees where outrageous more than the mortgage. Several golf courses were closed and the fairways were brown. This time the housing market is the same but they are watering some of the fairways making the area look more lush.... More
