Default Should I relocate to SE Nevada?

So I hear Las Vegas suburban is very non-urban - Not like most major city suburbs in the USA - is it realy pretty much void of businesses, restaurants and entertainment in comparison to other US suburbs?

Also am I safe in assuming Las Vegas suburbs is growing more and more liberal by percentage? - I like living with moderates and liberals?

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?

PS: yes I know the economy in Nevada is shot - but I have a new online business showing good signs, and I plan on opening a storefront in a tourist trafic area - Baazar, Home Decor, Fashion w/ ootdoor mid-eastern grill at afordable prices


Thanks good people!

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.
