Bonnie Springs Ranch is a replica of an old western town. Quite frankly, this is one of the best-kept outdoor secrets in Las Vegas. Even some locals don’t know it exists (trust me, I’ve asked). Bonnie Springs Ranch has a street gunfight show, peacocks roaming freely, a hotel, horseback riding, a pond with ducks, a train, a saloon, and a restaurant with a cozy fireplace.

3. MOUNT CHARLESTON

Not normally found in the Mojave Desert, the Spring Mountains are the ultimate escape during any season. Mt. Charleston is the main attraction during winter for its merry fluffy-white snow. It is the highest point of the Spring Mountains measuring 11,918 feet. On the voyage up to Mt. Charleston you’ll see wild elk crossing the street, a school, a lodge, cabins, endless amounts of snow, and finally a restaurant. Sledding, hiking, and skiing activities are also available.

4. BOULDER CITY

Exploration is certainly a rewarding experience. Boulder City is a quaint but adventurous town 30 minutes from Las Vegas with much to see. You can choose to eat from 20 plus family-owned restaurants; historic sights to explore like the Boulder Dam Hotel that’s remains operable since 1933, and museums.

5. LAKE MEAD

Lake Mead has been a local family-favorite for decades. Aside from their enormous Mississippi river-boat cruise, boating, lodging, camping, restaurant, and historic railroad trails, the feeding fish insanity outshines them. The marina at Lake Mead is home to huge catfish whose hefty physique is due to the generous families that feed them. You’re encouraged to stop at the nearby grocery store to buy a minimum of four loaves of bread per person; catfish pile one another hoping to swallow a whole slice. You will also find ducks positioned away from the madness, assuming position in case the generous stranger tosses a piece. Although the plural of loaves to purchase may seem extreme to you, you will rid them easily.
