You ask any Las Vegas local and they’ll tell you the same thing: I wish I could see behind those gates.

They’re talking about Wayne Newton’s Casa de Shenandoah estate, located in the suburbs, about a 15-minute drive from the Strip. The original Mr. Las Vegas purchased the parcel of land back in 1966, buying up more acreage as the years passed, leading up to today’s 52-acre, one-of-a-kind property that’s now open to the public for the first time ever.

The property is truly magnificent, as oasis in the desert, as the land sits on top of natural artesian wells, giving the land its ponds and lakes. On your tour, walk the many paths to either Newton’s animal sanctuary and say hello to his capuchin monkey, Boo, or visit the two barns with more than 60 stalls housing 60 pure-bred Arabian horses.

You can also step inside Newton’s mansion and peruse family photographs, a game room, and the Red Room, his private office with some of his most-treasured possessions. Other highlights include checking out his extensive and stunning car collection and boarding his private jet. The tour begins at the visitor’s center where you can purchase Wayne essentials and gift, view a video of the making of Casa De Shenandoah, and now tour of one of the country’s most famous estates.
