The Sloan Canyon Petroglyphs are a great hike in Henderson, NV.  It’s about a 5 mile hike from the visitor’s center to the petroglyph rock art that covers the canyons and includes a great view of the Las Vegas Valley as you return back to the visitor’s center.  It’s a fairly easy hike with a few spots for climbing up some rock “steps” for an easy elevation change. - Stephanie Maddocks

Don’t miss Bliss Dance!  She can be found at the center of action on the Las Vegas Strip, reigning over The Park next to T Mobile Arena. This awe-inspiring 40-foot sculpture of a dancing woman was born at Burning Man in northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert and acquired by MGM to be the main art installation in The Park. Artist Marco Cochran describes her as “celebrating the strength of a woman who is both safe and present.” Not your average Las Vegas showgirl. - Linda Faiss
