Kayaking. Stargazing. Roasting marshmallows over an open fire pit while surrounded by sounds of nocturnal creatures. Yes, such a getaway actually exists in this Valley at the Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort, which offers the most un-Vegas escape while still remaining within eyeshot of the Strip. Here, the lake isn’t choreographed to a Celine Dion song, and nobody is dropping any bass. The only thing you’ll be dropping is your stress. Forget a staycation; we may just move here permanently. 101 Montelago Blvd., Henderson, 702-567-6000, WestinLakeLasVegas.com.
