North Las Vegas Reviews

Housing is very affordable, and neighbors are great! Clark County public schools in general rank low, so education is not good. Broadacres Marketplace is a fun neighborhood event for everyone as there is good music, food, and dancing. Police officers are highly racist, so people of color get stopped for no real reason routinely; your safety is questionable here if you are a person of color. North Las Vegas is part of the main metropolitan Las Vegas, so the air is no good-- sometimes the smog is so thick that you cannot really see the stratosphere even though it should be in plain view. Many good jobs move to the suburbs, like Summerlin, Aliante, Blue Diamond, and south of Henderson. The jobs here in North Las Vegas is mainly fast food and retail.

Living in North Las Vegas has been a great experience. My family was able to rent a nicely appointed home which would have been out of reach in our previous neighborhood. I love going to our local coffee shop and seeing our local youth growing up, and thriving. What I enjoy is the tolerance shown in our very diverse neighborhood, despite clear signs of generfrication of the classic homes. North Las Vegas was a more developed city than its glittering sister in the 40s and 50s with ranchers being social class that mattered in those parts. The horses still reside next to apartment complexes, and the city is a blend of race and culture which people seem to embrace. The oversized Craig Ranch Park and LV Motor Speedway are big venues for food, concerts, and the like. NLV has something for everyone!
The local parks are my favorite part of North Las Vegas. They are so big and open. My niece loves to go and play with the geese and ducks in the pond, and it is excellent for photoshoots. The neighborhoods are all charming, and the people are amiable. Naturally, we have some pretty great food selections because it's Vegas. Safety is alright; there are some pretty stupid drivers, so please drive very carefully. Nightlife is an A+ because, again, it's Vegas. The cost of living can be pretty high depending on the area, but they are building lots of new neighborhoods right now and they are much more affordable than existing homes. Overall North Las Vegas is much more family friendly than the downtown area, so definitely keep that in mind if you are considering moving here. Commute time isn't terrible if your work isn't on the strip. But traffic gets really bad by the strip, so if you work there then definitely leave your home early to get to work on time.
