"Make sure to visit Downtown Summerlin during one of their local farmers markets, which often aren't widely advertised to tourists - you'll find unique, artisanal products that you can't find on the Strip. Also, the parking garage on the Pavilion Center Drive side is generally less crowded, so park there for a quicker and easier way to get into the area."
