Lake Las Vegas   Lake Las Vegas is one of the most scenic spots in the Vegas Valley, and is considered part of Henderson. The man -made lake is a huge hit with tourists and locals both.  Lake Las Vegas is my happy place- IM OBSESSED- LOVE IT!  I miss the ocean and mountains in the Pacific Northwest; so at least being at the lake helps!

I wish we had bought a condo at the lake, instead of a house in town.
