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!

North Las Vegas can be both good and bad depending on where you may find yourself, but overall it's not the worst experience you can have in Vegas. Commute time is somewhat bogged down by the frequent construction zones, especially if you find yourself heading down to Las Vegas proper via the highway, which suffers delays due to the Project Neon Highway expansion project. Furthermore, public schools here have suffered from CCSD mismanagement and budget constraints, leaving much to be desired of our education system. The nightlife is average, as many North Las Vegas-based casinos are similar to their Strip counterparts while a good deal of places are open relatively late, but should you seek a clubbing experience, the Strip is likely your better bet.
North Las Vegas is a fast growing city with a ton of construction, a ton of new homes, and a lot of families. There's new apartments, new housing communities, and new streets all over the place. There's some really great local restaurants in the area or at least not too far. There are some really nice parks in the area, too. My only problem is that there isn't enough schools. I'm currently a high school senior in North Las Vegas, and my school has around 3,000 students. They need to put in a new high school, and they definitely need to put in a new middle school since one of the public ones became an academy last year.
It still is southern Nevada though, so expect hot summers. If you plan on gardening, this may not be the place for you. Fruit and vegetable plants usually don't last the summer.
