One of the largest and fastest-growing cities in Nevada, North Las Vegas is a unique blend of desert valleys, panoramic vistas and dynamic development. Many people are surprised to learn that the city is actually separate from Las Vegas, with attractions and appeal all its own. And while it may not boast the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, visitors will find no shortage of gaming venues in North Las Vegas, including the impressive and recently constructed Cannery Casino and Hotel. The city is home to Nevada’s only NASCAR venue, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and Nellis Air Force Base, which includes the Weapons Museum, one of the best-kept tourism secrets in the state and a must-see for military buffs. Visitors to North Las Vegas also can amuse themselves at one of its many museums, parks or impressive golf courses.

The city of North Las Vegas is situated at the northern edge of the Las Vegas Valley, where recreational pursuits including hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, sightseeing and camping are only minutes away. Visitors to the booming city will find nearby attractions such as Lake Mead, with more than 500 miles of shoreline, as well as 11,915-foot-tall Charleston Peak. A quick 30-minute drive to the mountains is the ticket to skiing at Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort, hiking, camping and picnicking.

The city also is known for its festive events, including Taste & Tunes, a celebration of culture, heritage and music in the form of cooking demonstrations, concerts, dancing, boxing—even a salsa contest! Also, at various parks throughout the city, Movie Madness offers free flicks under the stars on a giant mobile movie screen. Want to be entertained by day? Catch the annual BalloonaPalooza.
