Every year the cactus garden of Ethel M's is converted to a Christmas lights extravaganza with over 50,000 lights covering the various cactus plants. It is a virtual feast for the eyes and the photo's do not do it justice.
This is the second installment of my Low Cost/No Cost adventures. Touring the cactus garden is free. There is a store/gift shop that has all sorts of chocolates. My friend Marge and I decided to go this evening and just enjoy the sights; it was truly a lot of fun.
If you are a visitor in the Las Vegas Area, you can drive to Ethel M's (it is located in Henderson, NV) or you can take public transportation. From the Strip you would take the SDX bus to the South transit terminal and transfer to the Sunset Bus (212) east. Get off the bus at Sunset and Sunset Way; walk across the street and enjoy. Since some of the Hotels on the Strip are charging parking, public transportation is a very viable option.
I will probably have one more adventure this month as I HAVE to go back to the Bellagio to see the Christmas display in the Observatory.
Until next time, look for ways to enjoy your city no cost/low cost. Share what you find out.
