Mount Charleston
#3 of 69 Nature & Parks in Las Vegas
This is easily a half day trip or longer if you want you do some trails but it is a wonderful escape back to nature from the glitz of Las Vegas.
Would highly recommend, although would recommend going at a different time of week if possible, as it was very busy and hard to find a spot to park at the top.

The Park
#9 of 69 Nature & Parks in Las Vegas
The park has been added and is an enjoyable place to sit on benches in the shade and get away from all the craziness of the strip.The cascading water cools you off and is just neat to feel.
The mist stations and fountains where a great change of pace and depending on the time of day there might even been some shade and room on the park benches!

Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat
#14 of 69 Nature & Parks in Las Vegas
Our guide, Tammie was brilliant a true asset, she took us on a behind the scenes tour of the dolphin area giving us so much information on the dolphins and the research and work that is carried out at the park.
As a docent at Lincoln Park and Cleveland zoos I am familiar with enrichment and am pleased to see that the program includes such needed stimulus to help the cats have some impetus to act with enjoyment.
