I've been visiting Sunset Station for over ten years, because my mother lives in Henderson. If you're looking for a relaxed time in the Vegas area, this is for you! Sunset Station caters to the "locals" who live in the area...not the wild weekenders who inhabit the Strip, which is about 15 miles away. Sunset Station is a beautiful casino, spacious, with the lovely ceilings that resemble those on the Strip, clouds and soft lighting. The casino area is huge! The restaurants are top-notch, the Buffet is terrific, the Cafe is good for everyday fare. There is a Starbucks onsite, too. There's a 72 lane bowling alley, shows with surprisingly famous entertainers, and a cinema. Across the street is a world-class shopping mall, and there are dozens of restaurants nearby. Plenty of free parking.
People who live outside the Strip will always tell you that the odds are better in Henderson, because local people come often and are the primary customers. It's an easy taxi trip to get to the Strip, but I bet you will be content to get away from the frenzy and learn to love the way that people who actually live near Las Vegas spend their time and money. Give it a try!!
