Summerlin is an upscale residential area with Red Rock recreational area very close by. Summerlin has the newest shopping area nearby known as DTS (DownTown Summerlin) and is very close to one of the highways. Summerlin has very good school ratings, for Elementary, Middle and High Schools. Summerlin has one of the Station Casinos ( Red Rock Casino) close to the highway and many restaurants close by. Overall Summerlin is a very popular place to reside in. Real estate is in the middle to high range, but it is worth the investment. Summerlin is in the northwest region of Las Vegas Valley.
I have lived in Summerlin for most of my life and there is a lot to love about it. It is a safe community with kind people. There is a countless amount of places to go for entertainment, food, shopping, etc. You can always find something new to do here and as a teenager who loves exciting, new experiences, I am thankful for that. Nothing is too far from each other and it is easy to find your way around. The community as a whole is just wonderful. The only complaint I could have is that the diversity is a bit low when it comes to races, but I have definitely seen an improvement since I have moved here. Summerlin is overall a very pleasant spot to reside in.
