Boulder City had always been to me the little town you drive through to get to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. After many years of driving by the cute houses, nostalgic looking restaurants and quirky shops, I suddenly realized that I should be making trips just to see Boulder City.
Recently, my parents and I visited the veteran’s cemetery in Boulder City and placed flowers at the graves of loved ones and friends. I forgot to take pictures, but here’s a link if you want to see what it looks like: Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
Then we stopped by Hacienda Interiors Inc. If you’re looking for whimsical, Southwestern style decorations for your home, you are likely to find a treasure in this store located on the main the road into Boulder City. You can’t miss all of the metal statues glistening by the side of the road.
Next to Hacienda Interiors Inc. is the Boulder City Trading Post. It’s a Native American art and souvenir shop. You will find jewelry, carved vases, woven baskets, blankets and more.
Just as we were making our way out of town and back into the big city, we stopped at Chilly Jilly’z. My dad got a chocolate malt, my mom got a frozen latte and I got an Italian Soda with cream. The broasted chicken smelled so good that we ordered some to take home for dinner. Next time we’ll be trying the frozen yogurt too.
