The best place to watch launch and recovery in Las Vegas is north of Nellis AFB around the speedway gates at LV Blvd. During Red Flag there are usually many fellow spotters parked there. Unless winds dictate otherwise missions launch TO the north and recover FROM the north. If you have a scanner you can listen to the Nellis ATIS on 270.1 MHz for the active runway direction.

Good places around Rachel include Coyote Summit, the area around Cedar Pipeline Ranch, the Back Gate, the gravel pit in Tikaboo Valley, Powerlines Overlook and almost any other location in Sand Spring, Tikaboo and southern Railroad Valleys. The best location depends on the mission and ingress/egress routes. Coyote Summit is probably still the best spot. See the attached link for a map of the area for reference.
