The Cactus Garden is open again! Ethel M Chocolates’ breathtaking Botanical Cactus Garden is Nevada’s largest and one of the world’s most prolific collections of its kind. Based on the English landscape model of naturalistic design, the Ethel M Botanical Cactus Garden features three acres of drought-tolerant ornamental, cacti, and other succulents.
Did you know that over 300 species of plants can be found on the grounds? Half are cacti and succulents largely native to the American Southwest, and the rest are desert trees and shrubs from the Southwestern United States, Australia, and South America. All of these plants were chosen both for the beauty of their floral displays and their ability to adapt to the climate of Southern Nevada.
Ethel M store, factory and gardens are located at 2 Cactus Garden Drive, Henderson, Nevada 89014. The telephone number is 702-435-2608. The hours are:
Sunday-Thursday from 9am–6pm
Friday and Saturday from 9am-7pm
Besides the glorious Cactus Garden, you should also visit Ethel M Chocolates factory and have a self-guided tour of the chocolate viewing aisle and see how they make their amazing chocolates. Self-guided tour and Cactus Garden are free and open year-round!
And one of my family’s favorite holiday treats starts November 5.
Go see the holiday lights from 5pm until 10 each night thru January 2. Stroll through the three-acre cactus garden with over a million lights twinkling & making spirits bright. I heard you can even have your photo taken with Santa! (Walk ins are ok, but having a specific reservation eliminates standing in line to see if you can get in.)
And don’t skip a premium Holiday Chocolate tasting experience. Sip one of the world’s best hot chocolates on (what we consider) a cold winter evening! Plus, you can buy candy boxes for friends and family!
In lieu of collecting toy and food donations this year, a $5 non-refundable donation will be required per group of 6 people when making a garden reservation. The $5 fee will be donated to Three Square Food Bank and HELP of Southern Nevada.
