RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – Boulder City’s Hemenway Park has bighorn sheep. It was founded in 1931 with the express purpose of housing laborers hired to build what was initially known as the Boulder Dam on the Colorado River.
“It has a very art deco vibe so it’s very vintage in feel,” said Tracie Barnthouse of Travel Nevada. “There’s a lot of outdoor recreation including hiking trails along Lake Mead.”
The community of around 15,000 inhabitants is located in Clark County outside of Las Vegas and continues to be a favorite of travelers wishing to get away from the big metropolis.
“You got the view of Lake Mead, it’s a great retreat from the city lights of Las Vegas,” said Tracy Johnson when she was visiting from Oregon.
