based on the higher quality of life, class status, activities to do, and its future. For vegas, factor in the entire city rather than just the strip.

Would rather live in Indy.

Not a huge fan of Vegas to live in. It's an awesome place to visit though.

higher quality of life: Las Vegas
class status: Las Vegas
activities to do: Las Vegas
future: Las Vegas

Las Vegas is growing and will continue to have a bright future. The city is home cultural and entertainment options you won't find in most midsize cities. The weather and things to do are nice as well.

Wow, cannot believe Indy is winning this poll. Proves very much most forumers on CD are from the Midwest. I am not even sure how these two can be compared?

Yeah this one is not really even close. Las Vegas is in a different league. I'm not sure how Las Vegas is not winning.

You're right...according to the poll numbers, it is not really even close. Sorry the evidence doesn't support your Indianapolis narrative. That must really bother you. But it's really not that hard to imagine. Vegas (like Indy) isn't everyone's cup of tea. Outside the strip, Vegas is not that special. If you're a fan of cities in the traditional sense, Indy certainly offers more. I agree with most who would say that Vegas is probably the more exciting place to vacation, but Indy would be better to live in.

Indianapolis is also growing, and there is nothing that leads anyone to believe it won't also "continue to have a bright future". What cultural and entertainment options, outside the strip, does Vegas have that you won't find in most midsize cities? Vegas doesn't even have an art museum anymore (it closed in 2009 due to a lack of funding), the orchestra there is a joke, and there are no professional sports teams. The weather is nice (though it gets oppressively hot), but that's not for everyone. And what does "class status" mean? Are you suggesting that a poor person in Vegas has a higher class status than an Irsay or Simon here in Indy based solely on geography? This is not to disparage Vegas, as I've had great times there, but rather to point out your continued lack of objectivity on this forum regarding Indianapolis. You are perhaps the biggest offender of the pervasive "groupthink" narrative on these boards that would have everyone believe that Indianapolis offers no redeeming qualities, when you've never once provided any insight or evidence to suggest that you've even stepped foot in the city.

Too many people in Vegas actually enjoying too damn much to be posting on here. Not surprised by the results.
