    I found this in an online article of different things to do in Vegas. We have been to Vegas many times, but had never even heard of the Lion Habitat Ranch. We purchased 10:00 AM tickets, which is when the site opens. I must admit, my initial impression was wary, because of the amount of chain link fence. But after spending two and a half hours there, I am a fan! These animals are very well taken care of, the animal spaces are pristine. The staff is lovely and knowledgeable about each of the lions - their dispositions and likes/dislikes. This is the ranch that where the MGM casino would rotate their animals when they had the lion display. After the MGM got rid of the exhibit, at least some of the animals remained, calling this their permanent home. In addition to the lions, there are birds and tortoises. And last but certainly not least - Ozzie the giraffe. Who has his own large abode, complete with heated floors. Ozzie paints, I think each hour, and then his masterpieces are for sale in the gift shop. You can also hand feed Ozzie for 10.00. That gets you exactly 3 romaine leaves that he will eat promptly. It is honestly a great way to raise money - and where else will you be able to have a photo op of you feeding a giraffe??? There were no big groups when we were there, no camps or schools - so we found the ranch to be low key and delightful. It is a far cry from the Glitz of Vegas - and well worth the trip!!!

    The vintage houses were fantastic, loved the history of old Vegas and Hoover dam, plenty to see! $2 entrance fee and great gift shop, certainly worth the drive!

    OMG this resort is fabulous! Immaculate! You don't even smell the smoking from the casino. Plenty to do at the resort. Plenty of shopping in the area. Just wished the pool was open. It closed 10/15 and we were there 10/30-11/1 and the weather was so warm - it would have been nice to sit out by the pool area. But despite that, would definitely go there again!

    Excellent place for birdwatching and photography. No entry fees too. I went at 7:30am and there was plenty of bird activity. Lot of geese around as well, and smaller birds too (with some patience!)

    Recommend to anyone looking for a nice nature walk in Las Vegas as well!

    Fun to just walk around observe. Check out the bar. If you are a gambler you would enjoy this casino.

    Park was clean, staff were friendly and safety conscious. Rides were fun! I would advise to wear something on your feet as the ground got really hot! Shame there isn't a shuttle bus from Vegas as we got a taxi which was quite expensive. Would definitely recommend it.

    with many restaurants and some shopping available. We walked here after dining at King's Fish House. Found a Bath & Body Works that had some great deals to take home.

    If you love cycling and want a safe but visually stimulating ride---then this is for you. It was designed keeping cyclists in mind.

    Hiked the petroglyph trail. Lots to see. Also lots of cool cacti and yucca. Bring lots of water and will also need sturdy shoes. The bright afternoon sunshine made it hard to see several of the petroglyphs. A nice hike to do while waiting on my flight later in the day.

    Went to the mall today with family. There are a lot of shopping and dinning opportunities.
    On Fridays they have a farmer's market inside the mall.

    I was quite impressed by my first visit to the Joker's Wild. The casino is large, spacious, and well lit. Their restaurant reminiscent of an old country diner.
