The atmosphere is great. It is a good neighborhood, quiet, relatively close to most shopping centers. It's miles away from the strip, but close enough to drive to. If I could do it all over again, I would definitely choose to live in Summerlin. Las Vegas weather may be a bit dry and hot during the summer but it is only a 4 hour drive away from the beach. There's also a lot less traffic than California or bigger and busier states!
