    My wife and I were in town and decided to visit the Little Church of the West where we were married decades ago. We were surprised to see that the old historic Church had been physically moved across the street from its original location. But it is still physically intact. The ladies at the desk were kind enough to let us in to take some pictures and reminisce. W were only intown for a short stay so we didnt have time to go through a vow renewal ceremony....next time!
    For any one looking to tie the knot, this is a great little historic venue that is truly different when compared to the glitz of other wedding chapels in town.

    It was good to find something like this in Las Vegas. The visitor centre was very informative and lovely and cool. There was one building with exhibits "outside" and I would have found a bit more signage helpful there.

    Decent amount of parking, very nice restrooms and deliciously cool water to fill my water bottle - all for $3.

    My friends got married at this place on 11-11-11. We had the wedding at 1pm and the reception there at 6pm. The wedding itself was so beautiful, the room that they got married in is spectacular, you have to google it and look at the pictures of the staircases coming down. We were treated very well by the entire staff, at one point at the reception we realized that an important box had been left at the hotel valet, one of the beautiful staff members got on the phone and spent 40 mins trying to help us find this box. The reception area around the pool was very classy, and again the staff took good care of us. The only complaint I had was the food, I wasnt fussy on, although my sister thought it was fine, I thought for the price they charged for catering it could have been better. I would suggest seeing if you could try it before the event and deciding if you wanted to find someone else to cater it. The venue itself was amazing with lots of character, and wonderful staff. Near the end they took some of us on a tour of the rest of the house and told some wonderful stories. Thank you for a great wedding hartland mansion.

    I went to two of the access points – at Durango Drive and Aliante Parkway – in late September. Both have parking and information boards. There were brochures available at both information kiosks. There are no other visitor facilities and the NPS do make this very clear on their web pages. If going to the Durango Drive access point there are plenty of food and restroom opportunities at the intersection with US95.

    There are marked trails from both points. I did the loop from Durango Drive. There are posts with QR codes to scan for more info or you can download it ahead of time. I’d downloaded the info but it wasn’t massively informative. There was no shade at all but, on the plus side, no dog poop and very little litter. Take water.

    By the time I got to the Aliante Parkway access point it was too hot to embark on a further hike. I found this a less congenial area with lots more litter.

    The Ice Age Fossils State Park is due to open soon. This will be quite close to the Aliante Parkway access point. The sign I saw said “fall 2023”. I believe this may be going to have some visitor facilities.

    If you want the NPS stamp this is available at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge (which is a few miles north and has a lovely visitor centre) or at Lake Mead Visitor Centre. I got them to send me a Junior Ranger book by email which I printed out before I went. I presented my completed book at Lake Mead VC and got the all-important badge.

    Back in the days when Las Vegas was segregated, Harrison House was the place to stay for black entertainers, visitors, and more. The home still stands in the historic West Las Vegas neighborhood and is slowly and lovingly being restored ay a dedicated group of folks.

    Tours are available by request; donations are welcomed. You can hear about the area's history and see the rooms where luminaries like Nat King Cole and Sammy stayed. Lots of memorabilia on display.

    The area once boasted many black-owned casinos and showrooms. Harrison House gives an interesting glimpse of a time not so long ago, when things were different.

    Katherine gave me a one on one tour and was just amazing. I knew about this spot from my late father. A music teacher, he had colleagues who'd stopped here in the 50's.
    I am very, very glad I visited. Thank you for the look back at history.

    We attended a wedding held at the Historic Fifth Street School. It was just the right size for a wedding of forty or fifty people. The open space was large enough to serve as wedding chapel, dinner seating, and buffet. We walked around the grounds to get a feel for the original use of the buildings. Great photographic art on the walls!
