Activities

Tee off or shop until you drop in Henderson

The Henderson area has established itself a golfing hot spot, with its dramatic desert landscape providing an idyllic setting for a host of challenging courses, all with beautifully manicured greens. Shopaholics are similarly well catered for, with huge, blissfully air-conditioned malls and exclusive open-air plazas to explore. Whether you crave old-school glamor or hip minimalism, you’ll find friendly bars to suit, where you can unwind over a pre-dinner cocktail. Later, you can indulge in some high-stakes fun in a casino, or head to a pulsing club to dance until the early hours.

Weather

Henderson’s endless summer

With almost 300 sunny days each year, and minimal rainfall, Henderson boasts a truly enviable climate. If you’re planning a family vacation, you might want to avoid the height of summer, when it can get scorchingly hot. Spring and fall, however, guarantee weather that’s warm but never overwhelming – and as an added bonus, you may find that Henderson vacation rentals are a little more competitively priced. It’s also a great choice for a spot of winter sun, although the mild temperatures at this time of year are better suited to brisk hikes than swimming and sunbathing.

Natural features

Dusty deserts and shimmering lakes

A whole world of natural spectacle sits on Henderson’s doorstep. The captivatingly colorful surrounding desert simply begs to be explored – embark on a scenic hike to discover cascading waterfalls and tranquil hot springs, or cover ground more efficiently and travel by dune buggy or on horseback. Just a short drive from Henderson you’ll find the Lake Mead Recreation Area, with its shimmering, deep-blue waters, perfect for a spot of swimming, boating, or fishing. The area is also home to an array of eye-catching animals, from bighorn sheep to rare desert tortoises.
