We personally think the biggest attraction to Henderson is that it’s closer to Lake Mead. You know the amazingly huge lake just 10 minutes from Henderson. Its also got some parts where the celebrity’s live from the Osmonds, the Mayweathers, and of course it’s super close to Jlo’s and Arods new, non traditional gym. So if the big timers in the area live here it must warrant some praise right? I hear the schools are rated pretty high, they also have some great private schools in the area too. Though most of that happens in the newer part of Henderson ( closest to the strip, ) we like the older part, which is of course closer to Lake Mead! The older section has some cool, little family owned restaurants that still somehow still have held onto some small time charm.
