A Desert Playground
As the saying goes, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but we’d like to modify that just a bit: If you happen to relocate to Vegas, you’ll happily stay in Vegas.
That’s because the area gets more than 300 days of sunshine per year. A desert climate makes it an ideal for sustaining a sunny disposition and a healthy lifestyle, with plenty of trails and terrain for hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing.
This desert playground delivers a lot of bang for the buck. The cost of living is relatively low (no state income tax) and the quality of life is quite high. The communities of Summerlin, Henderson and North Las Vegas are among the fastest growing residential areas, known for their proximity to exceptional education and family-friendly recreation.
- Explore: In the city proper, visit the Las Vegas Springs Preserve or the Southern Nevada Zoological Botanical Park (aka the Las Vegas Zoo). Or travel to nearby Mt. Charleston Recreation Area or Lake Mead (the nation’s largest man-made lake).
- Feast: You don’t have to venture out to the infamous strip to find world-class restaurants, celebrity chefs and dazzling entertainment. The Smith Center for the Performing Arts is home to classical music, ballet and theater, while the Las Vegas Arts District offers an eclectic mix of galleries, shops and restaurants, as well as a monthly arts and culture event.
- Watch: You’re in good company in Las Vegas. Not only does the area draw top-name entertainment, it is often the subject of movies, from Ocean’s 11 and Casino, to Leaving Las Vegas and Honeymoon in Vegas – both starring Las Vegas resident Nicholas Cage.
Take it from us. Las Vegas is a sure bet.
