There's So Much to LOVE in Henderson!

Local attractions

Though it’s located just a few miles south of the famed Las Vegas Strip, Henderson boasts a wealth of its own amenities and attractions, too. Major shopping malls, movie theatre complexes, restaurants, as well as casinos and resorts dot the city landscape. Henderson is also home to the Artisan Booze District, which features family-owned beverage manufacturing facilities open for tours, sampling, and demonstrations. The Water Street District serves as the historic downtown of Henderson, where you'll find tons of local culture and unique experiences.

Annual events

Henderson offers an unmatched blend of big-city convenience and small-town charm—so it's no surprise that the events here are just as diverse as the community itself. If you want to live like a Henderson local, we recommend cheering on the Las Vegas Raiders at a home game or heading to the farmers market to sample fresh produce all year-round. The Aki Matsuri Japanese Festival transforms Water Street each fall, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the city's seasonal concert series.

Parks and recreation

Set in a picturesque desert landscape, Henderson's location in the Las Vegas Valley makes it ideal for anyone who loves exploring nature to the fullest. Henderson is home to the largest recreational facility in Nevada, the Henderson Multigenerational Center, as well as the scenic Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve. Also nearby is the River Mountains Loop Trail, a 35-mile trail offering scenic panoramic views around the River Mountains from Henderson to the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead National Recreation Area. True outdoor lovers can enjoy almost 200,000 acres of open space at Red Rock Canyon.

A+ schools

Even if you don't have children, it's worth investing in an area with top-rated schools—they can actually help your property values over time. Luckily, Henderson students are zoned for the Clark County School District, the fifth largest district in the nation. Henderson itself offers 29 elementary schools, nine middle schools, and nine high schools. Additionally, there are more than 20 charter schools and 12 private schools in Henderson.
