las-vegas-airport-runways-viewing-area For a free and entertaining (even romantic) diversion, you really can’t beat the runway viewing area at Harry Reid International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the Nation. Bring along some lawn chairs, or sit in your car, and watch as various aircraft take off and land.

Tune your FM radio to 101.1, and you can listen to the conversations between the pilots and the air traffic control tower (now that should set the mood). The area is located on Sunset Road, about 1/5 mile West of Eastern Avenue.

Parking is free.

Hours: Open 6 am until 11 pm.
