Just a few miles north, the glittering Las Vegas Strip stretches far into the desert, its fame and notoriety known the world over.

The glitter and excitement of the city are complemented by Henderson’s hometown charms. Ideally situated south of Las Vegas and west of Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, this vibrant city is brimming with community and cultural events. With more than 37 miles of trails to explore, Henderson, Nevada ranks sixth on Prevention magazine’s list of best walking cities. Some of the best trails in the area roam through the scenic McCullough Range, hilltop home to Ascaya.

Ascaya puts you within minutes of Henderson’s highly rated public and private schools, world-class resorts, savory restaurants and popular shopping destinations, leading medical facilities, outstanding recreational areas, public and private golf courses, Henderson Executive Airport and McCarran International Airport.

Henderson also offers 60 meticulously maintained parks for your year-round enjoyment. In addition to open grass areas and playgrounds, features include walking courses, dog parks, skate parks, splash pads, lighted courts and sport areas.

Henderson’s longstanding support for arts and cultural programs is evidenced in its commitment to adult classes, events and workshops. Programs involve every age group from early childhood to 50 plus, and include everything from dance and drawing to parenting tips and cooking classes.

Forbes magazine recently ranked Henderson America’s second safest city. Henderson has also been named as “One of the Best Cities to Live in America” by Bloomberg’s Businessweek. And just last year, Henderson was again ranked as one of the Top 10 “Safest Cities in the United States.”
