Default Which is better: Centennial Hills or Enterprise area?

I'm relocating to the Las Vegas area for my job. I'm very unfamiliar with the suburbs of Las Vegas and am hoping that someone can school me on which area is better for myself and my daughter to live in. My job has offered corporate housing in either the Centennial Hills area (off of W Centennial Pkwy), or in the Enterprise area (off of Blue Diamond, close to Mountains Edge). I've found preschools in both areas that I like, so it's really just a matter of which area is better in terms of safety and having alot to offer in terms of restaurants, malls, etc. I will be working from home so daily commute isn't an issue. I appreciate an help that you can offer!

Centennial Hills has a LOT more retail nearby. Much was promised for the Mountains Edge area, but the economy stopped some of those plans. There is some shopping on Blue Diamond between Decatur and I-15 (Kohl's, Target, etc.), but it pales in comparison to the options in Centennial Hills.

You'll find that many people on this forum live in the northwest and enjoy it. I'm a proponent of the southwest part of town, but if shopping is a major priority with you, I'd lean toward Centennial Hills.

I agree with owelles.....the SW corner of the valley tends to be more rustic...the roads tend to be .....less finished.... and the shopping is slimmer....all of this is because it was the latest to be developed....I like BOTH areas equally well and DISLIKE both areas equally. [I live in LAS VEGAS not outside...]

Centennial Hills has a little more finished look to it, but nothing wrong with either. Both have different advantages. In the SW you have Bass Pro Shop, Red Rock Canyon, Spring Mountain Ranch, and you are a little closer to LA. In the NW you have Boca Park and Tule Springs, and are a little closer to the mountains...and Reno.

Both are good areas.

Centennial hills hands down. Enterprise is nice but the shopping choices are far better in CH. CH has much better highway access, both 95 & 215 are very convenient

Gilcrease orchard is out here too at Tenaya and Grand Teton, if youd like to take your daughter fruit picking

Mt Charleston is also 20 mins away if you wish to play in snow or beat the heat when summer comes back around

I've lived in both areas, and just really prefer CH. It has more of a....finished looked (as someone else put it). A lot of shopping and food. I never feel like I'm missing something here.
