Bread so good they will sell out if you don't get there early. Great pastries (difficult to choose) and they have products straight from Germany that can't be found elsewhere.

Sports bar with TVs everywhere so can get loud when a local team is playing. Good burgers and have that cookie pizza. Appetizers alone makes a meal and half price at happy hour.

Sightseeing
A night scene you won't easily forget (not for the kids) ....historic casinos like Plaza, Golden Nugget still there. Lots of live bands or DJ's scattered up and down, zip line, and look up for fabulous light show.

A must see or don't come to Vegas. Yes, its just like in the movies. Every hotel casino has some kind of draw...Bellagio fountains, Treasure Island pirate show, Venetian singing gondoliers, and on and on. May not be the best place for kids, but if you're careful in the daytime, its not so bad...

An engineering wonder.... Las Vegas wouldn't be here without it. Go down into inner workings and see giant turbines and discover how they stopped the Colorado River. Beautiful spots for great pictures. Closes at 5pm now.

A real 1800's saloon, as it was when Goodsprings was larger than Vegas. The saloon has bullet holes, ghosts, and a tribute wall to Clark Gable and his wife, Carole Lombard, killed in plane crash. He waited in that saloon until they brought her body down,. They have great burgers there, too. Walk around town and get the feel of an old miner's camp.

Parks & Nature
Can see the red stripe from almost everywhere. Best rock climbing or gentle easy hiking up to a waterfall. Visitors center will give you lots of options in between and the history of the area (think Cowboys, Indians and Horse Thieves). Definitely cooler up there too (may even see snow in early summer)

Start here to get info on the artificial lake thanks to Hoover Dam. Swimming, paddle boat, canoes, fishing..... water level down due to drought so maybe limits on some activities.

Can't say enough. You're only a 4 hr drive away but its a MUST see. You can see it an be back in one day. It is grand. North Rim or South Rim spectacular. Can hike down to Colorado River or stay in cabins down there if you're pretty athletic. Not for those afraid of heights!

Can really get away from it if you like...some people camp out there. There is a tourist center where you can grab a bite to eat or even rent a cabin. About 2 hours from Vegas so its an easy day activity.
