Culture and Lifestyle
Imagine waking up to beautiful warm weather every. single. day.
And what if you knew there were quaint boutiques, fine dining, and shopping malls all within a short drive of your home? When the weekend arrives, you're just a jaunt away from the entertainment mecca of the United States. Yep, you really can have it all when you move to one of the communities surrounding the Las Vegas Strip.
If you love the outdoors, Las Vegas is Mother Nature's playground. There are canyons and mountains to hike, music festivals, camping, skydiving, white water rafting and no winter weather to get in the way of your outdoor adventures.

Are you a foodie? Some of the top chefs -- including Emeril Lagasse, Michael Mina, Gordon Ramsay, Wolfgang Puck, Giada and Bobby Flay -- have restaurants in the area that are simply perfect for date night.
For sports lovers, there's pro hockey and boxing to follow, NASCAR races to attend and minor league baseball to enjoy.
Working in Las Vegas
One major perk of collecting a paycheck in Las Vegas is the lack of income tax. More of your money stays in your pocket!
Some of the top employers include MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment Corp. and Station Casinos LLC. If you prefer to venture beyond the entertainment industry, The Valley Health System, Supervalu, St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and Sears Holdings Corp. also employ thousands of people.
If you travel often for your job, you have a thriving international airport at your fingertips.
Family Life in Las Vegas
Think beyond the glamour and lights of the Las Vegas Strip. There are several suburban communities that offer fabulous schools for the kids and work opportunities beyond the world of gaming and casinos. With ample outdoor recreation areas and parks, you'll always have somewhere educational and green to explore with the kids.

Plus, pools. Pools everywhere.
Property taxes in Nevada are lower than the national average, making it an affordable place to relocate. The statewide average is 0.96 percent. And, communities like North Las Vegas are growing in leaps and bounds, so there's no shortage of homes to explore. It's best to make your move to Las Vegas during the coolest months, which are December, January, and February.
