Did you know there are lakes in Las Vegas (aside from Lake Mead)? They’re all man-made (including Lake Mead), but yes, there are lakes in the desert! Enter The Lakes, a planned community built around these big bodies of water. There are a couple of restaurants on the lakes at The Lakes with waterfront patios, but Americana takes the trophy for this one. This consistently underrated restaurant serves beautifully prepared and plated seasonal American cuisine, and you can’t beat their patio on a warm fall evening.
