Let me start by saying that my kids hated this! However, my wife & I enjoyed this little big oasis outside of the strip. It was strikingly refreshing! The garden display was my absolute favorite. I learned about 3 different ways to curate a mobile/urban garden. While you are walking through, make sure you keep an eye out for the... More

This lovely garden provides a brief respite and a pleasant breath of fresh air from the glittery concrete jungle known as The Strip. However, one can still see the skyline from this nice little oasis, most notably the Stratosphere. We saw a variety of small desert plants, plus some trees, many of which were identified by garden-type signs. The cafeteria... More

It's a nice oasis of nature in the middle of Las Vegas to be sure but it's really geared towards kids. The botanical gardens were nice but not overwhelming (maybe better in the spring of fall). Much of the rest bordered on cheesy. We both got tired of being constantly beaten over the head with messages about saving water and... More

This place is great if you are visiting Las Vegas and want to get away from the gambling. There is history about the water supply in Las Vegas and how the city started. This is a nice place to relax and just be with yourself. The Nevada State Museum is next to the Reserve full of history.

Not even two miles from the strip, there is a place that has excellent botanical garden, Origen Museum features more than 75 permanent exhibits, Las Vegas valley history museum. That just received a large grant and are adding historical buildings and developing the anthropology site there also.

Part museum, part botanical garden, and part preserve, with a good restaurant, and nice views. Once we found the Springs Preserve we made it a staple and have encouraged friends to visit. It is great for kids and adults and has a lot to offer. Plan on spending several hours.

This is a marvellous place, just on the door step of the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas but worlds apart in terms of beauty and tranquility. The whole place is wonderfully laid out with some truly beautiful gardens and plants. As other reviews have mentioned, the butterfly house is small but very lovely and the Nevada Museum is really...

Didn't appear to be much when we pulled up but what a surprise . So well organised . We were early so just... More

I had seen this online of things to do in Vegas so we decided to get away from the strip and check it out. We were not disappointed. We even went back the next day!! There is so much to see and do one day was just not enough. The first day we spent a couple of hours in the... More
