Kimba: GMTA.

Here are some links to the Premium outlets. I like going here because you are above the Strip and you avoid all the traffic.
They have a lot of fantastic stores/brand names.

But aren't there construction delays now? between ann rd and washington I heard they closed one lane each way . and its supposed to take 2 yrs for completion of the widening project?

Since I travel outside of rush hour the project so far has not hindered me. The speed limit is 55 for a small stretch.

It's an elementary school. Yet another school zone to avoid. Gone are the days when we could cut through Valley drive to Rome to get to shopping the back way. Now we have to wait for lights on Decatur.

Is it difficult or slow to get taxis in these areas?
Are there minimum trips before a taxi wants to come? For instance if I walk to a store less than a mile away, but wanted a taxi ride back to carry the merchandise, would this be a problem?

Sometimes it will work and sometimes it won't. One time you will get a taxi in 15 minutes the next time you will be waiting an hour and a half.

Taxi service is not really workable in the NW.

You have been told a couple of times...it is very difficult and hard to rely on public transit in the outlying areas. You can do it but it will be painful.

So any more question on the subject just make your own answer. Yes they wil leave you standing on a corner in 110 degree heat for two hours.

So, I drove around both areas today and I could live in either, but I prefer Centennial Hills a bit.

I wanted to walk through a 1 bedroom Sky Pointe condo to get a feel for the floor plan to verify it would work for me, but the realtor I was initially talking to now says he is booked solid with clients the entire time I'm in Las Vegas and doesn't want to show it unless I was ready to purchase immediately.

The pics of 1 bedroom units have been mostly poor and incomplete, so I need to see the interior in person before I can even seriously consider a later purchase.

Centennial hills is quite nice. That's a good pick. I really like it when we go over there for shopping or just for a drive. It's very pretty.

As for seeing the condo, tell the realtor that you HAVE to see inside and that you are serious about buying, but you cannot buy something sight unseen. I would suspect they are hiding something if they won't even let you go and look. Find a better realtor that will help you more in getting what you want, not what they want to give you.
