“Over 300 species of plants”

Ethel M Chocolates' breathtaking Botanical Cactus Garden is Nevada's largest and one of the world's largest collections of its kind. Based on the English landscape model of naturalistic design, the Ethel M Botanical Cactus Garden features four acres of drought-tolerant ornamentals, cacti, and other succulents. Over 300 species of plants can be found on the grounds. Half are cacti and succulents largely native to the American Southwest, and the rest are desert trees and shrubs from the Southwestern United States, Australia, and South America. All of these plants were chosen both for the beauty of their floral displays and their ability to adapt to the climate of Southern Nevada. Come visit Ethel M Chocolates at the factory location in Henderson. Take a leisurely stroll through the cactus garden, and view the botanical desert terrain, enjoy the self-guided chocolate viewing aisle and see how we make the best chocolates we know how to make.

This place has a lovely international collection of cacti to wander through, with themed walks and informational plaques! A nice nature escape from typical Las Vegas attractions. Definitely a morning activity, however, if you go in the summer. When you're done touring the gardens, take a spin through the chocolate factory on-site, where you can see the chocolate being made and get a free sample. Very quick run through, but you'll definitely enjoy the AC and the chocolate is divine!
