Yes, I am the 1,000,000th person to ask this question "Where is a good place to live in Las Vegas"

Sorry guys, but you keep getting recommended all over the internet! LOL

So, here is my story, I have been to Vegas many times, and usually stay for periods of 3-5 months, the only problem is, I have been living in the bellagio hotel all those times, LOL. So, the only real places I have been are Summerlin (which is close to my office), and Henderson. I'm not gonna beat around the bush, I make a descent buck and I want a nice place to live... I don't want any high traffic area's, criminals, crack heads, bums, prostitutes, transients, or any other problematic people(s) Just peace and quiet, but not on the outskirts... (is this possible) lol


Any info would certainly help..

Let's see. Ritzy housing...well start with Summerlin...You can get housing there anywhere from 250,000 to 10 or 12 million. The nicer places with the fancy gating start at around 700K.

Or you can move further north where Buzz and I live. The nice cul-de-sacs and small tracts start at about 500K and go to a few million. These places are no smaller than 1/2 acre.

Both of thise possibilities are very convenient to a Summerlin Office.

There is also Queensridge in the area with a similar price range to Summerlin and the very nice high rise at One Queensridge...that starts at a little above a million and goes up from there.

There is a substantial and well developed area known as Section 10 centered around Buffalo and Oakey. Many small gated communities at 1/2 acre and above.

Further south is Spanish Trails and vicinity. Very nice golf course/club house setup with very tight security. Run 400K to many millions.

Up close to the strip are the Scotch 80s, the Alta corridor and the Rancho Charleston areas. 700K to multi millions. Minutes to the strip.

That is the west side. I'll tell you about the east side but I would rather not.

I'll tell you about the East Side...There are many custom cul-de-sacs along Pecos between Tropicana and Flamingo...As well as some areas along McLeod...Sandhill south of Harmon has some great neighborhoods as well...

the rural areas along Gilespie or Bermuda are pretty comparable to Buzz's or Olecapt's neighborhood, many cul-de-sacs...Pecos between Sunset and Warm Springs also has some huge houses, as well as along Tomiyasu...
