Henderson is located in the foothills south and adjacent to Las Vegas. Incorporated in 1953, Henderson is the second largest city in Nevada, known for its parks, cycling and hiking trails and master-planned communities. Henderson is certified Playful City USA.
Among our favorite parks in the world: Cornerstone, a repurposed quarry, now a multi-purpose marsh. Look for the egrets on the red poles. There are also ducks galore and often seagulls, an odd sight in the Mohave Desert.
To see old Henderson, visit Water Street downtown. We are fans of Chef Flemmings bakery, the Thursday Farmers Market and events at the convention center and the Henderson Events Plaza. Ample parking!
