Springs Preserve is blooming

Spring has come to Vegas and in between stocking up on Tylenol Allergy Sinus medication and buying bulk boxes of tissues at Cost Co, I took a walk through one of Vegas local treasures.

Just 10 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, the Springs Preserve is a 180-acre cultural and historical attraction that features extensive exhibits, wildlife, hiking trails and gardens. Right now the gardens are in bloom with wildflowers and cactus flowers.

You can spend the whole day at the Preserve and even enjoy a gourmet lunch, without the Strip prices, at the onsite Springs Preserve Café run by Wolfgang Puck.

On May 15, June 27 and July 11, Springs Preserve visitors can also enjoy CineVegas Under the Stars, an outdoor screening series held at the Spring’s Preserve amphitheater. Visitors can enjoy independent films while relaxing under the night sky. Movies start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 person person. The Food and a Flick package is available for $25. This includes a pre-movie meal at the Springs Preserve Café.

I'm one of a rare breed of folks, a native Las Vegan. That's Las Vegan, not Vegan. Being born in Las Vegas has endowed me with crazy Vegas skills - must be all the exposure to neon. I'm a human casino GPS, celebrity locator (You never know who you'll meet in a casino elevator, right Richard Branson?) and tip calculator. My mom taught me probability and statistics with decommissioned casino dice. When I walk through a hotel, tourists think I work there. Maybe it's my smile, my purposeful walk or my friendly answers. Maybe it's just the black suit. But whatever the reason, Vegas.com gives me the chance to exercise my Vegas super powers every day. Now if I could just predict when Megabucks would hit... You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
