Thanks for the details. That's exactly what I thought. Your point about it being the ideal second home location is on the money, I'm sure. It does sound amazing. Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to afford that kind of lifestyle and I would eventually get the same stir-crazy feeling you're talking about. It's one of my major problems with Tucson. Most of the things I want to do I have to go to Phoenix for -- a two-hour drive on a ****-poor excuse for an interstate highway. And even then, you're not in LA, you're in Phoenix. I, too, am spoiled from living in the East. Even when I lived in Pittsburgh, I could easily go to New York or Washington, DC, for the weekend, flying OR driving. I used to go to Cleveland for concerts, going and coming back in the same night. Philly, Detroit, and Toronto were as close to me as San Diego is now. We really were spoiled, huh?

Yeah...I'm just now realizing how spoiled I was!

I'm not sure I'll be able to recreate the lifestyle I had on the east coast, now that I'm trying to live on a smaller budget. I made a career change and decided to get out of the rat race and start my own business. But it's definitely a trade off. Now I can get a pedicure in the middle of the day on a Tuesday and take a 3 day wknd whenever I please but I'm hankering for a more urban lifestyle... ((sigh)) what to do?! I guess I can't have it all.

That is what, specifically, I like about the Southwest -- isolation and privacy from others. I didn't know that Nevada didn't have a state income tax. I will have to look into retiring in Las Vegas. I like Cali, but it is way too expensive for me. If you got the dough, southern Cal is for you. You need it to pay for high taxes and cost of living out there. Any good Gyro restaurants in LV? I also love mexican food. Where in Las Vegas metro are the hispanics concentrated at? North, South, West or East part of Las Vegas??

Paymons has the the best gyros in town. Theres also a place on charleston and rancho, inside the smiths shopping center.. but I cant think of the name.
I'd the say the hispanics are concentrated more on the north east side.
