Just a 15-minute drive west of the Strip is Las Vegas Springs Preserve, the 180-acre, $250-million preserve Las Vegans consider their Central Park. Museums, galleries, botanical gardens, and a living desert center full of Gila monsters and recluse spiders, sidewinders, and black widows are just some of the attractions. It’s also the site of the state’s oldest archaeological treasures: nomadic Native American tribes lived in this natural oasis as early as 12,000 years ago. Here you’ll also find the relocated Nevada State Museum, a 70,000-square-foot, $50-million ode to all things Las Vegas, from its 43-foot-long Ichthyosaur skeleton to a re-created railway and casino ephemera, such as a $25,000 gambling chip from the long-gone Dunes casino.
