Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa
Located 20 minutes south of the Strip in Henderson, Green Valley Ranch is another luxe “locals’” casino by Station, which captures its fair share of people who love their Vegas in measured doses. Décor is a little bit European manor house meets Alhambra, but it works, and 490 rooms and suites are located in a tower removed from the casino. One of its best advantages is its adjacency to The District, a walkable outdoor dining and retail zone, and an increasingly terrific restaurant program: Tides Oyster Bar is where locals know to get fantastic (and huge) portions of fresh seafood, plus, like Red Rock it’s getting a multimillion-dollar restaurant reno. Mercadito by the Sandoval Brothers is moving in and Tony Gemignani, an 11-time World Pizza Champion, is moving in his second Vegas location of Pizza Rock. Should you really want to get to the Strip, there’s a complimentary shuttle to Mandalay Bay, as well as McCarran Airport.
