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.

Downtown Henderson hosts the brand-new celebration of the Last Friday of the Month. Check out #JAWSNV

We are fans of Chef Flemmings bakery, the Thursday Farmers Market and events at the convention center and the Henderson Events Plaza. Ample free parking!

Natural World

Among our favorite city parks in the world: Cornerstone, a repurposed quarry, now a multi-purpose marsh. It’s still so new that most neighbors don’t know the park by name. The park hosts the annual Bark in the Park and this fall’s Get Outdoors Nevada Day. Look for the egrets on the red poles. There are ducks galore and sometimes seagulls, an odd sight in the Mohave Desert. More about the park on our wiki

Cultural World
Another under the radar recommendation – check out the Henderson Libraries. Excellent message boards, book sales in traditional Dewey-numbered goodness.
