    It was good to find something like this in Las Vegas. The visitor centre was very informative and lovely and cool. There was one building with exhibits "outside" and I would have found a bit more signage helpful there.

    Decent amount of parking, very nice restrooms and deliciously cool water to fill my water bottle - all for $3.

    I went to two of the access points – at Durango Drive and Aliante Parkway – in late September. Both have parking and information boards. There were brochures available at both information kiosks. There are no other visitor facilities and the NPS do make this very clear on their web pages. If going to the Durango Drive access point there are plenty of food and restroom opportunities at the intersection with US95.

    There are marked trails from both points. I did the loop from Durango Drive. There are posts with QR codes to scan for more info or you can download it ahead of time. I’d downloaded the info but it wasn’t massively informative. There was no shade at all but, on the plus side, no dog poop and very little litter. Take water.

    By the time I got to the Aliante Parkway access point it was too hot to embark on a further hike. I found this a less congenial area with lots more litter.

    The Ice Age Fossils State Park is due to open soon. This will be quite close to the Aliante Parkway access point. The sign I saw said “fall 2023”. I believe this may be going to have some visitor facilities.

    If you want the NPS stamp this is available at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge (which is a few miles north and has a lovely visitor centre) or at Lake Mead Visitor Centre. I got them to send me a Junior Ranger book by email which I printed out before I went. I presented my completed book at Lake Mead VC and got the all-important badge.

    Back in the days when Las Vegas was segregated, Harrison House was the place to stay for black entertainers, visitors, and more. The home still stands in the historic West Las Vegas neighborhood and is slowly and lovingly being restored ay a dedicated group of folks.

    Tours are available by request; donations are welcomed. You can hear about the area's history and see the rooms where luminaries like Nat King Cole and Sammy stayed. Lots of memorabilia on display.

    The area once boasted many black-owned casinos and showrooms. Harrison House gives an interesting glimpse of a time not so long ago, when things were different.

    Katherine gave me a one on one tour and was just amazing. I knew about this spot from my late father. A music teacher, he had colleagues who'd stopped here in the 50's.
    I am very, very glad I visited. Thank you for the look back at history.

    Much more than what we expected! Great day out from minute we were collected to being dropped off. Ryan and Harley made it an amazing experience, not only driving the Rzr through some awesome trails but stopping off to see some stunning sights in the desert. Never driven anything like this before but got the hang of it very quickly thanks to some good advice from the guides. Would recommend this tour to anyone looking to get your blood pumping while also seeing some hidden sights!
    5 stars all day!!!

    We attended a wedding held at the Historic Fifth Street School. It was just the right size for a wedding of forty or fifty people. The open space was large enough to serve as wedding chapel, dinner seating, and buffet. We walked around the grounds to get a feel for the original use of the buildings. Great photographic art on the walls!
