It’s the perfect day trip away from Vegas: In just a few hours, you could be sitting in the shade outside the farm’s retail shop, enjoying thick, creamy date shakes just yards from the date palms themselves. The shop sells all things dates, from baked goods and preserves to date rolls and the fresh, raw dates themselves. Choose the firm, less-sweet Algerian Deglet Noor dates or the soft, deeply sweet honey dates. Best part is, you can buy fresh, freeze them and thaw dates right in the bag without harming them. $4 for one pound on-site, $9 online, 8 China Ranch Road, Tecopah, Calif., 760-852-4415, ChinaRanch.com.
