With our Inspirada community nestled in sunny Henderson, the spring – and its accompanying temperatures — make the perfect opportunity to grab your loved ones and have a picnic.
Henderson has close to 300 days of sunshine a year and the spring temperatures reach the high 70s and low 80s. Luckily for us, there are many places near our Inspirada homes to soak up some vitamin D while enjoying a picnic, and many of them right inside the Inspirada community.
