If you are ever in Vegas and get tired of "The Strip", I highly recommend a trip to The Springs Preserve. Only 15 minutes away, it is a 180 acre cultural institution that commemorates Las Vegas' dynamic history, and provides a vision for a sustainable future. There are museums, galleries, an outdoor ampitheatre for concerts and events, colourful botanical gardens and trails, and a Wolfgang Puck Cafe with fantastic views of Las Vegas. We attended "The Haunted Harvest" that they throw for the first time this year, and will be returning every year. It was so decorated so phenomenally, and my boys are still trembling from the Haunted Hayride!
