There is The Strip where tourists and some locals enjoy themselves. The Venetian, Paris Paris, New York New York. Cesar's Palace, the Luxor, Excalibur. The Bellagio with it's fountain display. Each casino is unique in design.Several have been used in films, as well as a TV series based in Vegas; CSI. The original casino area glitters. Las Vegas continues to grow, and draws thousands each year to live here and visit. Las Vegas is affordable to those who choose to set roots here. Businesses continue to seek Vegas to build their enterprises. There are many opportunities for education. Vegas has a medical and dental schools. A top notch teaching hospital UMC with a trauma unit. I am happy to live here and enjoy the diversity this city offers. I wouldn't change a thing!
Review Las Vegas
The weather in Las Vegas is great year-round! The Las Vegas skyline has been undergoing vast changes as of late. We now have a hockey team, are about to get a football team, have our first IKEA store, and are still experiencing exciting changes throughout the valley. Las Vegas real estate is booming right now, and home prices are on the rise, but are still relatively inexpensive to other parts of the country. I enjoy the many amenities the valley has to offer, but wish there were more family friendly activities available. I would also like to see some changes to the public school system here in Clark County. The quality of public school education here is a bit behind other states in STEM and our state public schools consistently rank last.
This city is very unique because of its major industry. As a result, you are offered better convenient hours to shop, eat out, and even going back to school. For family oriented people, you have the option of charter, magnet, or vocational high schools. Healthcare is improving, and there is a growing number of specialists in the area. You will find yourself stuck in traffic between 7-9 in the morning on the 215 going west and on the 95 going north. Then by the time 6 o'clock hit the 15 and the 215 headed west were sometimes a nightmare. If you do not mind the streets, they are your better choices. You will find that Las Vegas is very diverse and overall very inclusive. There are areas in the city that is extremely culturally diverse. For example, we have an amazing China Town on Spring Mountain Road that offers amazing food! Yet, it is still small enough that you can get anywhere. So, if you are thinking of buying a home, Las Vegas would actually be a good option.
