Nelson Nevada

Trying to find some other activities during a stay in Las Vegas next week. I know we will go back to Valley of Fire and take some hikes we have not done before. Maybe Red Rock Canyon again..however for a short trip, I read about Nelson(a ghost town with good views of the Colorado River) Anyone been there? Worth the 45 minute trip? Any food on the way?

Any other suggestions for short trips? We don't need anything spectacular.

Also, for our 5 nights in Vegas, we have restaurants worked out for 4 nights...some we have been to many times and one new one. Any suggestions for the last night? Price does not really matter, although I would be reluctant to spend $200 per person. To give you some idea our choices are..
PF Chang(because we don't have them on the East Coast)
Canaletto in the Venetian
The Tapas Restaurant Baba Reba(?)
An Indian(our favourite) in a strip mall.
Thanks all.

The Nelson people really don't welcome strangers. I have been there years ago. There is some pretty scenery. There are better places to visit. Look through your guide book.

How about eating lunch in Boulder City which is near Nelson, and visiting Lake Mead?

Thanks for the Boulder City idea IamBooth. Since I believe you live in Vegas..do you have any suggestions for the other places that you allude to?
