Lake Las Vegas is off the beaten path when it comes to visiting the world famous Sin City, but if you’re after a break from the chaos that recapitulates Vegas, this truly is a destination not to be missed.

A resort city in the midst of Nevada’s Mojave desert, Lake Las Vegas is only 30 minutes from the Strip, though offers a far more relaxed atmosphere and pace.

Referring to the 320-acre man-made lake in the middle of a suburban area, you’ll find hotels, restaurants, a country club, golf course, sports club, hiking and biking trails, and so much more.

Here are the top 4 reasons to travel to Lake Las Vegas.

The Great Outdoors

The region is also brimming with fun recreation, and if you’re a golfer this is a great chance to practice your swings at Reflection Bay Golf Club.

Other entertainment includes swimming, boating, or just plain relaxing at South Shore Country Club where you’ll often find gigs and concerts from both local and world-famous entertainers.
