Hang Out by the Water in Las Vegas
As the heat of summer cools down just a bit, September is a great month for visiting Lake Mead.

Lake Las Vegas in Henderson is also a great option. Enjoy a sunset cruise or bounce around on an inflatable obstacle course in the water. Explore The Village to check out shops and restaurants.
