Stepping back into the past – Clark County Heritage Museum

Every now and then I love to step back into time and yesterday I did just that when I visited the Clark County Museum.

The museum is located on Boulder Hwy, Henderson, about 35 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.  The museum has an indoor exhibition outlining the history of Las Vegas and an extensive outdoor area including a ghost town, historic homes and a wedding chapel.  They also have a gift shop where they sell books, Native American dolls and miscellaneous items.

Yesterday we had a weather-perfect day in Las Vegas, ideal to visit the outdoors area of this museum. 

As usual, there’s always something interesting to do in this great city.  The Clark County Museum is definitely worth the drive to Henderson.  I thank Patty, one of my best girlfriends in LV, who is my designated driver.  Not because I drink, but because I'm a lazy to drive.  I love riding with Patty because she is a local and knows her way around very well.

By the time we left the museum, we were hungry and the three amigas headed off to have lunch at the Longhorn Casino. This is a small and older casino off the Strip on Boulder Hwy.  For $9.99 per person, we had steak, lobster, baked potatoes and carrots, accompanied with delicious bread rolls and a $1 beer.  What a deal!  These are the moments when I shout out, “Viva Las Vegas!”  Oh, and by way, admission to the museum is only $2 and $1 for children and seniors.  All worth it.
