If you're looking for a nice place to walk, this is it. There's a 2 mile bike/walking path that takes you around the entire grounds. Lots of things to look at and learn about the springs. We didn't go inside at all, just wanted to...More
The day we were there several events were being held so it’s difficult to determine too much about the space. We enjoyed the cactus garden a great deal but found much of the wayfinding to be confusing.
Just a short drive out side of the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas strip you can find this gem.
Plenty of interesting things to look at, and very well laid out. The species and varieties of desert/xeric plants they have on display are...More
This place has a lot of room to explore and our favorite part is the Flash Flood experience! They are constantly updating the property and have rotating exhibits so it's different every-time we visit. Only pay for the train if you're going to take it...More

Springs Preserve has several free days per year (from what I've been told) and this weekend was one of them. I hadn't heard of the place and wasn't sure what to expect but I did enjoy the visit. Think of Springs Preserve as a place...More
There are some nice exhibits in here with some history of Las Vegas. Interactive exhibits about the geology and water use, the flash flood room was great! It was really cold out the weekend we went, and there was some remodeling going on inside. Well...More

Needing a break from the Strip, my husband and I rented a car and drove about 3 miles West of downtown to Springs Preserve. Our visit could have lasted the whole day, but we spent about three hours there. They give a senior discount and...More

We paid a few bucks for the butterfly garden, but it was worth it. We were also there for a special mother's day brunch. It was around forty dollars but it was worth it too. The food was good. We also paid six dollars to crack a geode. It was fun and mostly white quartz. If you do this and your flying be prepared to have your bag that you put the geode in searched. Apparently the quartz sends up a red flag. We had a good laugh at that after TSA let our bags go.
