Las Vegas residents voted this the best park for picnics in the city. Along with plenty of picnic sites, it has four stocked fishing ponds. If you have a Nevada fishing license you can fish while you picnic. This is a beautiful park that's located only about 20 miles north of the Strip off of Highway 95 at Tule Springs. Quite a few fossils of early mammals such as mammoths, bison, horses, camels, and giant sloths have been found in the area, too, so the kids may want to look for ancient bones while you enjoy the views. The park is open daily, 6am to 7pm, and admission is $6 per vehicle. You can find out more by calling 702-486-5413.
