Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas - background:
Some people think Las Vegas is a fun place to take kids; others find the gambling and other adult entertainment too prominent. The Ritz Carlton Lake Las Vegas may be the right compromise: a 349-room luxury lakefront resort, just 17 miles from The Strip, but quiet and a world apart.
Guests will find year-round outdoor activities: water sports, stargazing, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing; 36 holes of golf.
Needless to say, these luxury properties have plenty of amenities. The Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas has a golf course rated #5 in North America (by Conde Nast Traveler), gourmet dining, and a 30,000 sq. ft spa.
