Wife found this place so we decided to stop by. It is about 8 miles from the strip and should take you less than 15 minutes to get there.. We drove there, parking is free. Tickets are about $19 for adults and cheaper for kids. You can also get an annual membership which also gives us access to selected gardens... More

Visited on a beautiful spring afternoon. Discount available for locals. The gardens are beautiful. Lots of natural native plants, cactus. You can see the natural spring water flowing in certain areas of the preserve. A must see for local residents as a reminder of why this area became a city. A must see for visitors to appreciate the true beauty... More

During our one-week trip to Las Vegas, my husband and I (seniors) really wanted to get away from the Strip and to see more of the "real" Nevada. We found the Springs Preserve to be attractive and informative. Within the grounds are three museums - one focusing on natural history, one on human settlement and Nevada history and one about...

Tis a grand sunny day to visit the Las Vegas Spring Preserve. We take care to drive to the dessert and several National Parks whilst visiting Las Vegas. For us, the “Strip” is NOT the main attraction. The Las Vegas Spring Preserve is about eight minutes from the Marriott Grand Chateau (located opposite City Center.) It seems that very few... More

As an adult I found this place interesting but it is a much better attraction for children. My granddaughters really seemed to enjoy it.

My friend and I had visited Springs Preserve in 2013. It was very nice but nothing to recommend. . . AND THEN we revisited today because we had information on the "Butterfly Exhibit". What a splendid surprise! This Preserve has come such a long way! The iron work, the outdoor wedding venue, the gorgeous walkways, the DesertSol Home, the architectural... More

This place is spread over a large area with both indoor and outdoor displays. My kids really enjoyed the flash flood room and the digging pit outside. The restaurant was surprisingly good with really fresh tasting and fairly healthy options.

We visited ONLY the Gardens and The Butterfly Exhibit while at The Springs Preserve. We did not go in to any of the buildings. This review is just about these two places. The Gardens were in full bloom while we visited on Monday, March 23. The roses were also blooming. The Gardens are very nice. We liked the Demonstration Garden.... More

Went on a Sunday with ideal weather. Yes, it is a bit of many different attractions...that is key to its appeal. Will return again.
