The town first came into existence in the mid-20th century during the Second World War. Its development was steered, in part, by the construction of a magnesium plant that quickly saw it become a major supplier of Magnesium during the war.

However, after the war, the town lost its luster as the demand for Magnesium reduced rapidly. The state legislature saw it fit to set up industrial plants, eventually giving the town the stimulus for remarkable growth. Today, the City of Henderson is one of the most popular spots for visitors.

Henderson is located in the Mojave Desert, and as expected, it is home to flora and fauna that is typical if this type of climate. Some of the common plant species include the Creosote Bush, Joshua trees, and Brittle Bush, among others. Popular animal species found in the town include the burrowing owl, coyotes, the Greater roadrunner, as well as the desert tortoise.

The city is close to the Lake Mead National Recreation area, which provides an array of outdoor activities. From scenic drives to boating, sightseeing and picnicking, there is something for the whole family to enjoy.

For history buffs, the Clark County Museum is a great place to explore. Part of the reason for this is that the museum’s curator is a popular guest on the popular reality show, ‘Pawn Stars’. A tour of the museum offers a glimpse into the culture and heritage of Southern Nevada. The museum is also the perfect place to see historic buildings that date back to the 20th century, most notably, the Candlelight Wedding Chapel.

For party lovers, Henderson does not disappoint with its M Resort and Green Valley Ranch – both great venues to enjoy a night out. Wind up your vacation with some retail therapy at the Galleria Mall, or go for the open-air plaza at The District to end a great stay in the city.
