MYSTERIES? I HAVE SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST
And I’ve saved the best for last the mysteries and secrets of Henderson Nevada
1. Rumor has it that Henderson is the home to us top-secret naval base this old Navel base is in the middle of the desert, supposedly an underground tunnel leads from the base in Henderson out to the lake in the abandoned Nevada desert where sophisticated submarines are taken for test drives.
2. There are rumors that Henderson is also hanted with repeated sightings of a little boy swinging on a swing after midnight or tails of a white face girl appearing in the hallway at school screaming for help
3. Would you believe that some of the best sushi can be found in the middle of the desert too… The Shushi Shop in Henderson both some of the best Japanese sushi in the entire region
4. There’s also an old talll tail that has circulated since the 1950s that there is a hermit in the Henderson swamps that lives in the caves with his dog many residents claim to have made contact with the hermit near and around Lake Las Vegas
15 MINUTES FROM THE VEGAS STRIP
The Las Vegas trip is only 15 minutes away this is one of the best things about Henderson the close proximity to Vegas allows you to enjoy venues away from the madness but close enough to still get into this trip and enjoy an evening
FINAL UNIQUE FEATURE OF THIS GREAT LITTLE TOWN
Henderson also has the most green of most places in the desert specifically in green grass there are 50 public parks within the city limits and five that are connected to the schools here
WE WILL BE BACK… HENDERSON NEVADA
