1. Plays at Spring Mountain Ranch.

2. Fishing, picnicking, strolling around, at Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs ...do dah, do dah.

3. Possibly the shooting park if they get their act together.

4. The District.

5. Town Square.

6. Pawn Stars, and all the local experts that I didn't know we had here. Saw Rick and Big Hoss at the iPod Store the other day.

Cranky? Us? How could you say such a mean thing?

Even better if you do it on your own alone or in tandem on a kayak. It's a bit strenous because of the current down there so be prepared but it is worth it and the scenery is definitely nice.

And while you're down there look for the steam from hot springs on either side of the river between the dam and Willow Beach. I like the one on the west bank nearer to the dam. They make a great hot tub on a cool day. The fishing on the river is good too.

Yes, Hockey Girl, its really located in Black Canyon. The original spot for the dam didn't work out! So they ended up in Black Canyon. The Hoover Dam museum at the Hotel up in Boulder City is a great place to see all the archives and history of it too. The volunteers there are top notch and love to tell all about the federal city and the dam.

Ditto first Friday. If you find yourself there or near LV Blvd north of Charleston (or maybe next door at Olympic garden) you're eventually gonna get hungry. When you do, go get a sandwich at Naked City sandwich shop, right behind Dinos. Man, they make a killer sandwich! All their sides, including the pickles, are made fresh.

Then, when you're ready for something sweet, you have to visit Luv-it frozen custard. These are a few of my favorite things.

Now that I think about it, maybe it was hidden secrets. Either way, I'm sure there are a few secrets/treasures not worth finding out about in LV. Heh!
