If one were to move to the area, where would you recommend looking first? Henderson, Las Vegas, N. Las Vegas, or any other area in the vicinity? Are the neighborhoods in Las Vegas getting/are too citified? Is crime worse? Is crime considered high?

All areas have nice and not so nice areas. The better way is to decide where you need to be and by a house that fits. Generally the nicer houses are furthest from the strip....but not always. Some of the nicest places in town are right across 15 from the strip.

The Bravehearts battle scene popped in my head when I read the title.

Las Vegans versus Hendersonians meeting up on the strip for a large battle.

My money would be on Las Vegas.

The Board of County Commissioners would watch from up on the hill then inslave the survivors.

It was always thus.

There are two million people in this valley and it's pretty hard to tell where Vegas ends and Henderson begins anyway. If "citified" worries you, look at Logandale, or Boulder City.

Avoid North Las Vegas at all costs. Avoid west las Vegas. Scary! Scary!

Now there are parts on the outskirts that are fine in those areas, but I really suggest avoiding them.

Henderson is a much safer place to live. It is prettier as well. Some parts of it are called Green Valley, because it is greener.

Henderson has everything you would need: Shops (mostly animal friendly), movie theaters, dance studios, martial arts studios, hospitals, decadent restaurants, malls, libraries, good schools, and easy access to highways.

The more east you are in Henderson, the richer and safer. I suggest a nice community with gate access. Some are really gorgeous and have high security.

So I suggest the Green Valley area near Green Valley parkway and Horizon Ridge Parkway (closer to Horizon Ridge and St. Rose Pkwy). That is a wonderful area that has nice apartment complexes and gorgeous home communities. The police station is there and there is a brand new library... along with tons of grocery stores and restaurants.

A beautiful hospital is there along with many doctor's clinics. Also a movie theater and several department stores.

Seriously?

Seriously? There are plenty of very nice areas around Vegas besides Henderson. Even ones that aren't gated and are just as green.

After this recent video of the Henderson Police beating the diabetic they took for a drunk, I know now, more than ever, where the Henderson city limits begin and the Las Vegas city limits end!

Henderson may be a safer city, but who wants to pay that kind of a price!!!

There's some nice, older, greener areas of Central Las Vegas which are sadly overlooked by newcomers! One example, check out Flamingo Crest, near Sandhill/Flamingo. I'd love to own a home in that area!!!

Ahhh, thank you for my laugh today........It's called Green Valley because Hank Greenspun (who owned the Las Vegas Sun) was a huge real estate developer and bought up most of the part of Henderson and he named it after the Greenspun family, hence Green Valley. Greenspun middle school was named after him too. Yes it's very green in parts. I'd say prior to the building of Summerlin in the early 1990s I'd agree it was the biggest "green area" in greater LV area at the time.

Uhhhh, ya...I'd avoid west Las Vegas, if I were to jump in my time machine back to the 1970s or 1980s when the "west side" was what we called the area around Carey, Bonanza, Rancho (which I think you are referring to). But if a native is talking about the west side area, most anyone newer looks at us like we are crazy because there is soooo much west of that now. Nowadays, most people consider anything west of 95 to be the western part of the valley, and that is a great part of town.
