live the dream

The Las Vegas Valley is called home by over 2 million residents, and the area continues to be one of the fastest growing communities in the United States. Lake Las Vegas Resort is nestled in the sculped lava mountains of east Henderson, a mere 17 miles from the famous Las Vegas Strip. The residents of our community enjoy a sheer freedom and unfettered lifestyle, unique to our city and unlike any other in the world. Whether you are looking for world-class dining, a nightlife that never ends, or Broadway-caliber shows, the City of Entertainment has it all and much more. For those looking for excitement outside the big city, the Las Vegas Valley shares an outdoorsman's spirit, rivaled by few others.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area offers a wealth of things to do and places to go year-round. Its huge lakes cater to boaters, swimmers, sunbathers, and fishermen while its desert rewards hikers, wildlife photographers, and roadside sightseers. Three of America's four desert ecosystems--the Mojave, the Great Basin, and the Sonoran Deserts--meet in Lake Mead National Recreation Area. As a result, this seemingly barren area contains a surprising variety of plants and animals, some of which may be found nowhere else in the world.

Hoover Dam & Boulder City
Hoover Dam is not only one of the Modern Wonders of the World; it is also one of the twentieth century's greatest engineering achievements. Its sheer size is one of the best reasons to go see it. It is built from over 6 million tons of concrete, enough to pave a highway 15 feet wide stretching from San Francisco to New York City. There is a guided tour available, but not necessary to visit the Dam. Boulder City is the original Dam Town, hosting many of the workers and families responsible for building the depression-era project. The quaint town is nearly adjacent to Hoover Dam, and is a fabulous place to stop for lunch before or after your visit.

The Great Unconformity
The Great Unconformity is a geologic feature where two adjacent layers of rock were not formed one after another in the earth's development. At Frenchman Mountain in Southern Nevada, there is a gap of about 1.2 billion years where the rock jumps from 500 million years old to 1.7 billion years old. In the Grand Canyon, the clearly visible related discontinuity represents a time gap that varies from about 250 million years to 1.2 billion years. The Great Unconformity's missing 1.2 billion years represents about 25% of the earth's history.

The Valley of Fire State Park
Valley of Fire State Park is located only six miles from Lake Mead and 55 miles northeast of Las Vegas via Interstate 15. The Valley of Fire derives its name from red sandstone formations, formed from great shifting sand dunes during the age of dinosaurs, 150 million years ago. Complex uplifting and faulting of the region, followed by extensive erosion, have created the present landscape. Ancient trees and early man are represented throughout the park by areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyph. Popular activities include camping, hiking, picnicking and photography. The park offers a full-scale visitor center with extensive interpretive displays.
