As you know, living in Henderson NV has many perks, one of which is the spectacular light show we have each night. And, we’re not talking about Luxor’s beam. Vegas sunsets are meant to be enjoyed. For those lucky enough to have a Las Vegas home with a pool, that’s probably your go-to spot to enjoy the sunset. For everyone else, we have the 8 best ways to experience a Vegas sunset.
The Quintessentially Vegas One – The Neon Museum
A location filled with colorful lights set against a sky aflame; get ready for a very Vegas sunset at the Neon Museum. This two-acre area includes the “boneyard” with over 200 retired iconic Vegas signs — 11 of which are restored.
The One with Red Rocks — High Point Overlook at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
While the Vegas skyline offers a striking contrast against a sunset sky, there’s something other-worldly about the grand red rocks at High Point Overlook during sunset. Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time to find a good spot.
The One with Cocktails and Dancing — Stratosphere 107 Lounge
Planning a night out? Kick the festivities off by enjoying a cocktail while gazing out at 360 degrees of Vegas-skyline views at Stratosphere 107 Lounge.

The Locals Only One — The Mirage’s Parking Garage
As we all know, parking can be expensive and hard to find downtown. But, to get some of the best sunsets, going to one of the high rises often is the answer. Problem solved: the Mirage’s parking garage is free for the first hour. Drive to the top, enjoy the view, and head out without spending a dime.
The One with a Lake — Lake Mead
