Located at 3555 S. Town Center Drive, Las vegas, Hokkaido is a restaurant where the chef prepares the food on a large grill or Hibachi right in front of you. While he chops, mixes, and seasons the food, he also does tricks with his knives and cracks jokes for a very entertaining dinner. The food itself is delicious with veggies and a choice between chicken, beef, and seafood. However, most Teppanyaki restaurants I've been to taste very similar and nothing about this place stands out. On top of that, I had to wait an hour even with reservations to be seated and then another 30 min for the food. All in all, the food was tasty, the chef entertaining, and I give it a B+.
Red Rock Canyon is Nevada's first National Conservation Area. Just drive west on Charleston, about 17 miles from the Las Vegas Boulevard, until you reach the 13 mile scenic drive. It has more than 30 miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, mountain biking, and a visitor center with exhibit rooms and book store. This video is from our hike at Calico where we climbed all the way to the top with just minor cuts and bruises. It is pretty difficult in some areas that require jumping across rocks, climbing near vertical walls, and dropping down 6 feet ledges. If you enjoy hiking and climbing, or just nature in general, you definitely have to visit Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas!
