Did you know that there is a wonderful cactus garden hiding behind a chocolate factory in Henderson, Nevada not far from Las Vegas and on the way to the Hoover Dam?
If you are planning on some sightseeing while in Las Vegas at the SAGA Retreat, I would add a visit to the Ethel M® Chocolate Factory to your list of places to go. Of course, who can resist the chance to see chocolate making and get to try a sample or two? But then there is also the wonderful cactus garden to walk around! The garden is the largest cactus garden in Nevada and features four acres of drought-tolerant ornamentals, cacti and succulents. Over 300 species can be found and many of the plants are native to the American Southwest.
The self-guided factory tour and Botanical Cactus Garden are open seven days a week.
The factory is located at:
2 Cactus Garden Dr.
Henderson, NV 89014
