Making Holiday Memories

Happy Holidays, Seasons Greetings and yes, Merry Christmas! Clean Green Boulder City has a couple of great, kid friendly attractions for close to home Christmas fun on a budget!

Nevada State Railroad Museum’s annual Santa Train is the first two weekends in December from 10 am to 3 pm, chugging out at the top of each hour for only $2 per seat! Tickets may be purchased in advance this year; call 486-5933.

From Rail to Sail! When you climb off the train, roll on down the hill to visit with Mrs. Claus on board the “Desert Princess” Paddlewheeler. Cruise at noon or 2 pm the first two weekends in December. Two kids through age 11 cruise free per one full fare adult, just $22! During the cruises on sparkling Lake Mead, enjoy Mrs. Claus, complimentary hot chocolate and mulled cider. Ask for the Kids Cruise Free Special when you book direct at 293-6180! Be sure to bring your camera to capture those special photo opportunities with Mrs. Claus.

In the great Las Vegas Valley, if you pine for snow, visit Mt. Charleston for a great day adventure, or trek to the Las Vegas Strip to discover one of the reasons visitors are drawn there. A world class example is the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, 3600 Las Vegas Boulevard South. Each season is celebrated with exotic plants and flowers grown right on their grounds. Brilliant colors highlight the Holiday display, accented with botanical textures and fragrances. Take advantage of more incredible photo opportunities at this elegant display.

When you are ready to stroll on, check out the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art featuring American Modernism Artists including my favorite, Georgia O’Keeffe, through January 3. Open daily from 10 am. Call for tickets and schedule deviations at 693-7871. Be sure to ask for your Nevada Resident Discount; kids 12 and under are free. Most major Strip hotels also have spectacular holiday displays.

May a spirit of unity emerge in Twenty Oh Nine to overcome the ugly divisiveness chipping at our way of life. Happy New Year!
