The North Las Vegas Airport has a wonderful open-air deck for watching aircraft, from small planes and helicopters to blimps, as they take off and land from this busy airport – plus its totally free to the public! There’s even a speaker outside that allows you to listen to the tower communicate with the pilots as they take off and land (on FM 88.5).
If your hungry there’s Sunshine and Tailwinds Cafe (located just inside the viewing deck) that serves food and drinks from 7:00 am – 8:00 pm daily.
Stroll around the airport lobby where signs and pictures tell the history of the airport which was built in 1941, and was once owned by Howard Hughes. Ample free parking and a beautifully landscaped picnic area are another neat feature here.
