Lastly - Is growth outward for the vegas area promising - or do the mountains restrict it's growth?
I am planing on moving there with my elderly mother and disabled brother -Simmerlin, Henderson, Spring Valley - maybe reconsider?
Thanks good people!
Most of Las Vegas is very much suburban -- chain stores abound. And Las Vegas pretty-much typifies "sprawl."
And you are not safe to assume Las Vegas is becoming more "liberal." It is very libertarian, but that's not the same thing. I would venture that most of the libertarians here are right leaning, not left leaning. The fact that we keep electing Harry Reid has more to do with the his opponents than Reid. Most of Nevada desperately wants to "dump Reid." You see it on bumper stickers and on signs in front of houses all the time. Even in non-election years. For the most part, Nevadans can't stand Reid. He just hasn't had a credible opponent in a few election cycles.
As far as outward growth, we're almost at the limit as it stands. There's room to grow in the North, Northwest and a little bit South. But we're right up against the mountains, East and West.
You haven't given us nearly enough information to tell whether it's a good idea or not to relocate here with your family. Is money an issue? What do you do? Where are you coming from? What do you like to do?
Not enough info. Not at all.
