hi jbkayaker12,

when is the best time to go tour Vegas? it will be our first time in the US actually and were planning to go last week of November or 1st week of December. It will be also our last in the itinerary after MNL-SFO-LA-NYC-W.DC-NYC-LV-MNL. How many days should we allot for Vegas? Could you help us plan for an itinerary? Basically we just want to see everything Vegas is famous for. Thanks very much in advance!

Ranch House opened last Friday in Town Square so my friend and I decided to check out the restaurant. The patio dining has a nice view of Rave Theaters. I ordered Turkey/Avocado/Tomato/Sprouts Wrap while my friend opted for a BBQ burger.

My nephews and I went for a bike ride over @ the Springs Preserve and then on the way home dropped by the DQ for some snacks.

Do they have bike trails at the Spring Preserve? If so, is there a fee? Btw, Love some the images, I can always feel at home even when I'm away. All I have to do is look at this thread, lots of pictures I can clearly relate to .

Yes and bike rental is $6.00 hour. Bikes cannot be brought in @ the Springs Preserve. Proceeds help maintain the Springs Preserve so I don't mind paying. The Springs Preserve is continually improving what is on offer at the Springs Preserve, whether its the bike trails, the exhibits or the gardens.

My friend and I went for a drink @ this old bar near the Strip, I took some photos of the bartenders truck. Nicely kept classic truck.

Love the campus shots as well. Looks very green, peaceful and vibrant.

This gecko at nearly a foot long just darted out the Springs Preserve garden trail and climbed up the Mediterranean Palm tree . Impressive camouflaged.

Thanks, I've done the same. I have visited many threads here but hardly leave a comment. Yes, I love the UNLV campus. So green and has lots of shade which locals love especially living in a desert. I wish I could just drive around and take photos all over Clark County but driving is my least favorite thing to do and I have very little patience when I'm on the road behind the wheel.

My friend and I dropped by the local Home Depot and purchased some plants, Jasmine, Hibiscus and Rock Purslane (Calandrinia). I parked away from the entrance under a Mesquite tree for shade, hehehe. The first photo is the Calandrinia, a succulent plant with long flowering stalk. Not many plants at this Home Depot compared to Star Nursery.

Locals will soon find out if this new 400 mile pipeline from UT will help motorists at the pump, CA oil refinery has competition now in the valley and I may just switch brands from Chevron to Sinclair.

--

"Just off Highway 93 and five miles past Apex is the newest addition to North Las Vegas. “Welcome. We’re your partners and your community of choice,” says Mayor Shari Buck. Buck believes southern Nevada has struck it rich with the UNEV Petroleum Pipeline.

UNEV stretches 400 miles—from Salt Lake City, Utah to Las Vegas—hence the name, UNEV. Until now, our valley was leaning on a single pipeline out of California.

“If the pipeline from California was cut off before, we would have no gas,” Buck said."

Thank you aarhus and Parisian. The other day on the way to work, I dropped by the Wetlands Park and checked on the progress of the visitor center. It looks like the work is now in progress on the interior of the center.

For lunch today we dropped by English's Gastro Pub. As usual my friend ordered his favorite inside out Ham and Cheese Sandwich while I ordered Cornish Pastry.

While having our meal @ English, I was taking photos of all the people checking out the pet homes on display and for sale @ Town Square. English has a nice view from their patio dining area and a great spot to people watch.
