Las Vegas Territory (Southern Nevada)

Towering peaks, breathtaking vistas, a wild, rushing river…not exactly what comes to mind when you think of Las Vegas? Then perhaps it’s time we properly introduce you.

Towering peaks, breathtaking vistas, a wild, rushing river…not exactly what comes to mind when you think of Las Vegas? Then perhaps it’s time we properly introduce you.

The Las Vegas Strip is synonymous with vacation fun. You can shop to your heart’s content at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace or the Fashion Show Mall, splurge on exquisite gourmet meals, indulge in decadent spa treatments at Wynn Las Vegas, Bellagio or any other resort and party until sunrise at some of the hottest clubs in the world. But Las Vegas has way more to offer than just what lies on The Strip’s playground. Just minutes from the mega-resorts, the Springs Preserve is essentially a living museum. Exhibits focus on everything from Las Vegas history to desert wildlife to the dynamics of a flash flood. You’ll want to set aside an entire day to take it all in. With your newfound desert know-how you can venture into Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area or Valley of Fire State Park, each with spectacular rock formations and miles upon miles of trails to explore. Red Rock is also considered a rock-climbing Mecca for its hundreds of high-quality climbs on nearly perfect sandstone.

For a first-hand view of the raw power of nature, visit Hoover Dam. Built in 1936, it is the third-highest dam in the world and supplies power to more than 20 million people in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Los Angeles and San Diego. Make a day out of your dam visit and stop in Boulder City for lunch at one of the many cafes that line the quaint town’s main street. Nevada’s southernmost city, Laughlin, is home to one of the country’s most popular motorcycle rallies, the Laughlin River Run and offers the same high-quality dining, gaming and entertainment as Las Vegas at a more laid-back pace.

Primm, 43 miles south of Las Vegas on Interstate 15, is California’s gateway to the Las Vegas region. Many travelers try their first hand with lady luck here on their way to the main event. In the opposite direction, 79 miles northeast of the city, Mesquite greets westbound travelers from Arizona. Relaxing resorts and exceptional golf courses might charm you into a vacation extension.

If the only thing keeping you from making that Las Vegas sojourn is the perceived lack of ski slopes, think again. Mount Charleston, less than an hour north of the city, offers skiing and snowboarding in winter months. Hiking and camping in the alpine forests of the Spring Mountains is a great way to beat the summer heat from the valley below.

The Las Vegas Territory is comprised of Boulder City, Henderson, Lake Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Laughlin, Mesquite, Moapa Valley, North Las Vegas, Primm, and Searchlight.
