The Beauty Of Las Vegas 3/172012 By Pete Allman

When folks speak about Las Vegas, they mostly talk about their experience with gambling, production shows, or shopping. Rarely do you hear or read about the beauty of Las Vegas.

I first arrived in Las Vegas in 1978 as an entertainer and had my own revue, The Pete Allman Revue, at The Fremont Hotel. This was where Wayne Newton started his career.

After living in Las Vegas for I while, I met a few local people, who showed me what Las Vegas had to offer new residents and tourists.


My first travels there, brought me to Mount Charleston, where the mountain air, and the the little creeks in the forest and pine trees where worlds apart from the strip.. Mount Charleston is some 11,000 feet above the desert floor and has two hotels,The Mount Charleston Lodge and the Mount Charleston Hotel. Both retreats specialize in weddings and anniversaries.

Mount Charleston is certainly the place where you can be with nature and have a picnic with the family. On the south side of Mount Charleston is Red Rock, where one can enjoy a 12 mile scenic ride, enjoying the various shades of the mountains and the various look out points and picnic areas along the way. There's no end to the activities families can enjoy in the desert.

The desert has a beauty that's surend, especially at night. Death Valley is one of those spots for gazing at the stars. It has a history with 20 Mule Team Borax. It is also known for the lowest golf course on the planet. Dune buggy and dirt bike racing, is also a big sport in these areas as well as boat racing and jet skiing on Lake Mead. Talking about Lake Mead, there's also Hoover Dam formerly called Boulder Dam, located just outside of Boulder City. This attraction has much history, dating back to Setember 30th, 1935,when President Franklin Roosevelt dedicated it's completion. Referring back to the beauty of the desert, it's flowers are so uplifting, that any individual could find their tranquility there. This is just a small over view of the beauty Las Vegas and it's surrounding areas has to offer visitors and locals.


On another point of view, I'd be if I didn't mention The Las Vegas Motor Speedway in North Las Vegas,and the baseball arena in downtown Las Vegas, as well as The Thomas and Mack Center, where The Rodeo takes center stage each December. We hope the pictures taken by B.J. Scahill of Avenger Productions will give you, the reader an overall view of Las Vegas and entice you to spend some time there with nature.May your vacation be uplifting and peaceful, while seeing the beauty of Las Vegas and it's surrounding areas.
