Ethel M., A Chocolate Experience

It is on Sunset Way in Henderson. Interesting experience. I stop by as often as I can to admire the desert gardens. Those desert flowers bloom in early spring and present an unforgettable sight/smell. After that I buy chocolate.

Fisher Space Pen Factory

25 miles down the road in Boulder City, Tel: 702-293-3011

Mr. Fisher’s pens have been on every manned space flight of every country since 1968. If pens and space are your bag maybe you should visit. At the same time you can look around town and maybe drive to Hoover Dam. They also let you buy pens. Tours M-F 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 711 Yucca St. Not hard to find, B.C. is very small. For someone on vacation with limited time it may be out of the question. However, should it be on your route in or out of Las Vegas, than you could stop by for half an hour or an hour. Don’t let me forget that new bridge just above Hoover Dam. You can actually walk across, the middle of the dam divides Nevada form Arizona. By doing that you either gain an hour or lose an hour ( or stay even?). Arizona does not observe Daylight Saving Time. (DST).
