- Parks & Outdoor Activities — If you love bird-watching, like many of the locals, head on over to Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve which is a birding oasis. The location is a little bit off-the-beaten-path but walking the well-marked trails is well worth the effort as you will get to watch birds nesting in reeds and trees in their most natural surroundings. Visitors should also make some time to explore the winding, long stretches of bike-friendly trails at River Mountain Loop Trail and we think you will also enjoy the former quarry that is Cornerstone Park today. The rehabilitated natural aquifer is a local, urban city wetland park that is popular with schools, educational bodies, health enthusiasts, photographers and families alike. You should also check out Lake Las Vegas for water-related outdoor activities, shopping and dining, visit Lake Las Vegas Oasis which seems to come alive every 4th of July celebration and weekends, go to McCullough Hills Trail for a retreat with your loved ones, hike around the famous Bowl of Fire or head out for some watersports with Wakesports Pro and Steele Creek Marina.
- Zoos & Aquariums — The Lion Habitat Ranch’s main aim is to educate people about African lions in the community as well as work together with conservation organizations like the Conservation International in Kenya. They believe that while the lions living under their protection are living out the rest of their lives in one of the most natural habitats, other wild lions have less fortunate fates. By visiting this center, you learn all about the stories behind each lion, lioness, cubs as well as emus, ostriches and giraffes. You will get to watch the feeding process at pee-determined times so, check out their website for details and schedule and don’t forget to support their commendable efforts by offering a donation.
