Living in Las Vegas
There’s so much more to southern Nevada than the Las Vegas Strip. No state income tax, low cost-of-living, master-planned communities, national recreation areas, world-class culture and entertainment, and 300 days of sunshine a year make this a fast-growing, family-centered community.
Families love the neighborhoods of Summerlin and Henderson for their proximity to work and their good schools. These vibrant communities incorporate public parks, outdoor recreation, farmers’ markets, and neighborhood activities. They maintain a small-town feel with plenty of shopping and dining, still within an easy drive of the city. But if you’re seeking a more rural lifestyle, reminiscent of the old west, there are plenty of small ranches available throughout Southern Nevada and in the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Mesquite.
Arts & Culture
Our region is home to renowned art galleries, burgeoning museums, performing arts, and world-class entertainment. Residents enjoy the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, Smith Center for the Performing Arts, Neon Boneyard, The Mob Museum and the Marjorie Barrick Museum, among many other venues.
Las Vegas is the home of the Raiders, who began playing NFL home games in 2020. The Vegas Golden Knights, a national professional ice hockey team, became the third team in NHL history to win multiple playoff series in their inaugural season in 2018. The Las Vegas Aviators, a minor league baseball team and the Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, also played their first game in 2019 from the new $150 million stadium, Las Vegas Ballpark. Even American soccer is represented with the Las Vegas Lights FC who made their debut in the United States Soccer League in 2018 and play home games at Cashman Field.
Las Vegas is a short drive from Mount Charleston and the Lee Canyon ski and snowboard resort. Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Lake Las Vegas, and the Colorado River all make an easy day trip for fishing, swimming, or boating. Mountain biking is a popular activity in the nearby Red Rock Canyon, and there are plenty of day hikes within a short drive of town. Despite the desert climate there are a multitude of premier golf courses including a Nicklaus designed and favorited Bear’s Best, and a short jaunt to the Pete Dye-designed Las Vegas Paiute Golf Course.
Our desert climate appeals to sun-seekers. But it’s not always hot. For close to half the year, our high temperatures fall within the comfortable range of 58 to 78 degrees, and low temperatures even bring us lowland snow sometimes.
Residents pay no income tax. According to Zillow, the median home value in 2018 was $275K, an increase of 9.4% from the previous year, and home values continue to rise every year.
Low Commute Times
The average commute for Las Vegas residents is only about 25 minutes.
