You pass this small small park on your way to Hoover Dam. It has a nice playground, a scenic view of Lake Mead but best of all, it got wild Bighorn Sheep running free. Pretty amazing to see those animals hanging out like that. However, please don’t forget to keep your distance!

Vegas’ best kept secret. The best food and the best cafes are found here. Monta Ramen, Gäbi Coffee, Golden Tiki. I don’t know where to start really. Maybe the best idea is to start at its birthplace: the enormous Chinatown Plaza (also a favorite place for photos). Chinatown is a quick 10 minute drive from your house.
