Keep Vegas Weir’d! For fans of quiet and urban ecotourism and conscious travel, one of the must visit places in Las Vegas is Clark County Wetlands Park just beyond the football and rugby stadium.

Can stacked, day-glo boulders be an inspired roadside attraction? Yes, with free admission. Seven Magic Mountains has been a go-to, whimsical delight since May 11, 2016. Hashtag: #7magicmountains

For those keen on public art – the sculptures, land art and ephemeral street art, one object deserving attention is located on the grounds of the McCarran Airport. Find the Vaquero (Cowboy) Statue by sculptor Luis Alfonso Jiménez, Jr on the xeriscaped hill close to where the old airport used to be.

Paiute land north of downtown is the site of NuWu Cannabis Marketplace, the largest medical and recreational marijuana marketplace in the world. With the largest windows of local dispensaries, this is a relaxed and breezy model of local dispensaries.
