  • About 10 degrees cooler than Vegas. There is a great picnic area with a large grassy area. Only one trail is open, but could be done easily if one gets there early in the day. Hoping that the rest.....  more »
  • We went here a couple weeks ago to see Chicago. They prices were great at only $17.50 each. When we arrived there was a line of cars and we just knew we were going to be late trying to find a parking spot, but it only took a couple minutes because they had attendants making sure people parked orderly. Rules are pretty lax on bringing your own food and drinks so that helped make this experience even better because I didn't have to spend $50 on snacks and a couple drinks like most other places. We will definitely be back again because even though I'm into musicals, I had a great time.
  • Spring Mountain Ranch has a lot of activities to enjoy. It has a ranch on the property that has a history to it of all the owners up to the time that Nevada state acquired it. There is a picnic area, trails to walk around the area seeing buildings, a lake, cemetery. The evenings at Spring Mountain Ranch is an outdoor theatre from the months of May thru September in the evenings starting at 8 pm. Bring your dinner, snacks or enjoy hot dogs, chips, pop corn, from the vendor there. Rent a chair for $1.00. Sit and enjoy the entertainment of the evening. You would have to check and see what the days of the week what would be playing and buy your tickets in advance. This is truly a delightful place to spend some time at. Lot of history and lots to see on the grounds.
