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!

When I first moved here from Los Angeles, North Las Vegas was known as a part of the ghetto side of Las Vegas. But having lived here for 10 years, this part of town has bettered. With the Raiders coming to town and the popularity of the strip lowering people prefer to stay away from the strip. They prefer staying in North Las Vegas due to its recent gentrification. Before I hated living here due to the lack of activities but now I find myself surprised by all the new restaurants and opportunities. Along with the new restaurants comes more job opportunities. There have been more people migrating from California to Las Vegas and because of our new developments, many of them chose to settle down in North Las Vegas. Meaning we are getting California drivers and their traffic. Other than that and the fact that you can smell (weed) when you get into North Las Vegas city lines, I do enjoy living here very much.
Being that I've grown up in Las Vegas, it may seem I'm a bit biased, but living here has been truly great. Usually when people think about Las Vegas, they already have this image of Casinos and Hotels, but we're much more than that. I mean yes, I do live two minutes from a casino, but I also live the same distance away from a great school, park, and grocery store. The area is constantly growing, and with this growth comes more businesses and families. Everyone is extremely friendly and Community is one of many ideas the area believes in. There's nothing I would change about the area, I'm happy to say I live in North Las Vegas!
