Visit Our Botanical Cactus Garden
The Botanical Cactus Garden at the Ethel M Chocolates Factory in Henderson, Nevada is Nevada’s largest cactus garden and one of the most prolific collections of its kind.
Our 3-acre garden features more than 300 species of plants. These include cacti and succulents native to the American Southwest as well as desert trees and shrubs from the Southwestern United States, Australia, and South America. Each of our plants has been carefully selected for the beauty of their floral displays and their ability to adapt to and thrive in the climate of the Mojave Desert.
Our Cactus Garden is especially magical during the holiday season, when it is carefully decorated in over a million sparkling lights and holiday decor starting in early November each year. Bring the whole family along to meet Santa and enjoy our famous hot chocolate and other delicious treats! Our Holiday Cactus Garden experience is unlike any other in Las Vegas, and makes for a great annual tradition for you and your family or friends to enjoy.
Feeling romantic? Our Cactus Garden is also home to our annual Lights of Love, a unique way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Bring your sweetheart along starting in mid January each year for a stroll through our romantically lit garden and enjoy our delicious chocolate-dipped strawberries and other treats. Lights of Love is also a fun and different way to celebrate Galentine’s Day with your friends!
