My husband and I are moving to Las Vegas in November can someone advise me about the best areas, we have a good standard of living in Ireland and I want to live in a nice area. I am really excited about moving to las Vegas I was told Summerlin and Henderson are nice but we have a person who is going to maybe let us rent their house in Aliante, but I don't know anything about the area and wanted some honest advice. Also I want to work when we move out there what is the best way to apply for jobs do you have to do a C.V. or do you register at the job centre? Any info. would be great no matter how much. Many Thanks

Aliante is a nice master planned community. We have lots of different home types, from condo's to townhomes to small homes to large homes. All different price ranges. From $200,000 and up.
Local shopping, and schools. A library. A fire station. A medical center being built. A local casino going up. Lots of different restaurants. 3 parks. Up the road a mile or so is Best buy, Wickes furniture, more restaurants, a Walmart super center, and alot more shopping.

Aliante is all new, and building started here in 2003. Some homes are still being built along with the new casino, more schools, and more shopping.

I can't help you with the information on jobs, since i work at home and did this before moving here.
Welcome to Aliante!

If you do decide to become a renter or owner here, then you can join the local aliante site too. Although their 'chat' feature is a strange setup, not like it is here.

If you have a good standard of living in Ireland, why do you want to move here? Ireland sounds great. Some of my ancestors are from there. I intend to visit there someday.

Even though the grass is always green in Ireland...it's even greener (albeit, unnatural) in LV.

You should know that!

To be honest...whenever I visit out west...the lack of greenery hits me hard. Wife and I visited Santa Fe two years ago...loved the place, especially the culture. When we went out to drive the neighborhoods, I was struck by lack of green. Very beautiful, cultural styled homes...but they just lacked something with out greenness. On the other hand, it was refreshing to see greenery up in Reno...it's like a mini-LV, with a touch of seasons. I really liked Reno.

But in the east, all you have is green......it is soooooo boring..... here we have wide vistas with subtle pastel colors and the light and shadow is spectacular.

You sure are right...beauty in both places, which everyone should get to see firsthand! It just boils down to what one prefers in their living environment.

I agree, I miss the trees from michigan. But on the other hand, it is nice to be able to see where you are going. I have never hit a deer out west either cuz you normally see them, they don't just pop out of the trees.
