September 15th through October 15th is National Hispanic Heritage Month! This is a time for recognizing and celebrating the national independence achieved by a number of Latin American countries between these dates in years past. It’s also a time to reflect upon and further appreciate the deep history and culture those who are Hispanic carry with them.
We’re celebrating the month by reflecting on some of our favorite Hispanic- and Latino-owned businesses to visit throughout the Las Vegas Valley. To learn more about where you can grab a mouthwatering meal, give back to the community, or enjoy an evening out on the town, keep reading!
