I love visiting Henderson with my family. There are so many choices for shopping and dining. It is near the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas, but since it is on the outskirts, it is chill.

Favorite Henderson places for lunch include The Cheesecake Factory at Green Valley and In-N-Out burger on Eastern. Pick up designer cupcakes at The Cupcakery also on Eastern. Grab your healthy food choices at Trader Joes on Eastern. For clothing, teens love Rapsodielle on Stephanie Street across from the old Toys R Us.
