Note from Your Publisher: Get Outside

By Heather Carroll-Landon, Publisher of Macaroni Kid SW Las Vegas & Henderson-Boulder City February 11, 2021


I hope this Note finds you and your family doing well and staying healthy. I also wanted to share that this is a time to cherish every moment you have with your family. Spending time outside is the perfect way to do so. There are so many different activities to do outside, you and the family are sure to find something to do to beat cabin fever. Take time to go to a park, explore the Historic Railroad Tunnels, experience Dig This, or just wander through Downtown Henderson and Downtown Boulder City. Spending time outside gives you exposure to the sun and fresh air. All of which will help you prevent cabin fever from setting in. 

With weather starting to warm up, we are planning on exploring all the different places outdoors. We will share our adventures in our newsletter and on our social media pages - Instagram and Facebook. We would love to hear about your favorite outdoor places to explore. Send us your suggestions to or to our Facebook page.
