Entertainment in the Las Vegas area cannot be rivaled by any city in the USA. We enjoy the blessing of having many casinos throughout our community. Most of our casinos like to bring in very good entertainment headliners at any given hotel. The dining cuisine within the casinos is very good, as they can afford to bring in the best chefs to be in charge of their dining rooms and menu. There are also many buffets. Many people just like to make friends while they go gambling. All of our casinos have all of the gambling activities available. Most of our casinos have movie theaters, bowling alleys, child care, and swimming pools all available for people when visiting or even when you live here to go enjoy those activities.
Most people don’t even know some of the best reasons to consider living here. Las Vegas enjoys no state income tax on wages or salaries or retirement income. Access to the community here is better by way of time and cost at the airport. You will have people coming to visit you even if they may not have visited you for a long time. All you have to do is let the word out that you live here and they will come to visit. When living here, I’ll give you the secret if you have relatives coming that you don’t want to stay at your house: when they tell you were there on the way or coming to see you, the next sentence you give them is “great, which hotel are you staying at?”
When you live in Las Vegas, the best time to travel and see friends is during the summertime. When traveling in the summertime, you will find the areas that you’re going to visit at the prime of their season looking beautiful and pleasing for your activities. The benefit of that is hard to measure, however when you are doing those activities you’re missing the heat of Las Vegas. The heat in Las Vegas is a dry heat it affects you a lot differently then heat in the humidity. In the summertime if you learn how to travel with extra water and hand towels you can stay cool just by soaking them and putting them on your shoulders; it takes the heat right out of your body.
When living in Las Vegas, there are many parks, community centers, walking trails, hiking trails, biking trails, tennis courts, golf courses, softball fields, and soccer fields.

On the busy weekend (such as New Year’s Eve, Fourth of July, and Super Bowl weekend, to name a few) we can get over a half a million visitors to our community.
This community has a lot to offer and most people find plenty to do and plenty of people to do it with when they live here in Las Vegas. The number one reason why people moved from Las Vegas is to go back to family when their health situations start to change. We challenge you to come to Las Vegas and find out if Las Vegas has something great to offer you. Most people’s perception of Las Vegas is what they see on the Strip. When you get off the Strip and visit the individual neighborhoods and the community in general, you have no idea what this town has to offer.
The best use of your time is to get a hold of someone who knows a lot about the community. I can tell you that you need to learn enough about the area to determine if it’s an area worth further investigation. That should be the first thing you set up when you’re going to a community to see if it’s a place where you might want to live. You can waste a lot of valuable time driving around your cell and not learning anything. Call us we can help.
