Henderson is located in the foothills south and adjacent to Las Vegas. Incorporated in 1953, Henderson is the second largest city in Nevada, known for its parks, cycling and hiking trails and master-planned communities. Henderson is certified Playful City USA.

Downtown Henderson hosts the brand-new Last Friday of the Month celebration. Check out #JAWSNV

We are fans of Chef Flemmings' Bakery, the Thursday Farmers Market and events at the convention center and the Henderson Events Plaza. Ample free parking!

Natural World
Among our favorite parks in the world: Cornerstone, a repurposed quarry, now a multi-purpose marsh. Look for the egrets on the red poles. There are also ducks galore and often seagulls, an odd sight in the Mojave Desert.
