Although Cadence has plenty of outdoor activities right in the neighborhood, you’d be remiss not to take advantage of nearby mountain biking and water sports at Lake Las Vegas. That’s right, Vegas has an outdoors.

America’s most diverse national recreation area, Lake Mead Recreation Area spreads across 1.5 million acres of mountains, canyons, valleys, and lakes perfect for boating, hiking, cycling, and more.

Bird is most certainly the word here. At 140 acres in size, the preserve is home to thousands of migratory and resident desert birds.

Grab the family and come explore the wetlands. Walk or bike the trails and learn how this unique ecosystem helps improve our water quality while acting as a home for hundreds of plants and animals.

An easy drive from Cadence, this 320-acre man-made lake is truly an oasis amidst the dry Nevada desert. Get out on the water and enjoy the lake or take advantage of the surrounding resorts, spas, golf, casino, and more.

Stretching along Lake Las Vegas, the views at Reflection Bay are almost as good as the award-winning course. On top of the golf, Reflection Bay is great for dining and events, and boasts a private white sand beach right on the lake.

A beautiful golf oasis, Chimera is a playable desert course with forgiving fairways that provides a fun challenge from any tees. The view of the Vegas Strip and mountains isn’t too bad, either.
