I've been living in Whitney and it's been a good experience because there isn't bad things that are happening and its a safe area to live. I really like how there's stores and restaurants close by. My family and I, sometimes walk to the store and it feels safe to do so. My mom and I also go running at night and yeah, sometimes it does get scary but the people are nice and thank God nothing bad has happened. One thing that I would change would be to put fmore ligs

They got ALLLLLLL the conveniences. Ask the supermarkets, drug stores, strip malls with everything you could really need or want, the Eastside Cannery, Sam's, neighborhoods of suburbia and yeah.. some national "hood" activity which if you utilize properly can benefit you. (That part of Whitney doesn't appear to be going anywhere anytime soon... Embrace it as your face will give you away... and people who see nervousness AND hate... Will react.. In ways not to your liking if your face is scowling..😐) Whitney is a residential area of Las Vegas that has all services AND some quiet away from downtown AND the strip...
Living in Nevada, we are mainly known for two types of weather, either extremely hot, or moderately cold. In the summer, we reach the average highs of 110, and during the winter, we reach the average highs of 45. When it rains, in certain areas, we do have a lot of flooding zones, which can be quite dangerous. Other than the dry summers, I enjoy the weather in Las Vegas.
