Ok. If you've been living in Vegas long enough to contemplate past choices, where would you move in the valley if you could have a do over and why?

As for me, I'd relocate the west end of Cheyenne (Desert Shores and westward) because of the more established neighborhood, ratio of newer and older homes, and accessible service to freeways/merchants I like to frequent.

I discuss this with the wife on occasion. After living here almost 2 years now we've been no place in the valley we would rather live than our neighborhood in The Lakes.

We really lucked out as we bought our house before living here and had spent limited time in Vegas before moving. Thankfully we had a great realtor.

We really liked Peccole Ranch but did not find the right house. We almost bought in Painted Desert as well. I believe we would have been happy there too.

People bit*h about HOA's, but until Summerlin came along, everyplace in the Valley aged faster than a blonde addicted to tanning machines. If we're only going back 20 years, I'd probably have bought a home on one of the lakes in Desert Shores. Before the mid to late 80s there warn't nuthin west of the Tonopah Highway (Rancho Road). I've lived in the Twain/Paradise area, Deckow Lane behind what is now the MGM, Winnick St behind the Flamingo, 14th and Stewart, Lamb and Charleston area, near Boulder Highway and Twain, Rochelle St between Eastern and Pecos (a block S. of Flamingo), Washington and Pecos area a block from NLV, Washington and Torrey Pines area, Lone Mountain and Decatur area, and now the NW near Durango for the past 12 years.

Summerlin, Desert Shores, Peccole Ranch, the NW, are some of the best places in town because they don't let these areas run down like other parts of town.

My wife and I talk about this often too. Anywhere close the 215 is what we mostly agree on. North, west and some of the south. Scoop's neighborhood is cool too.

Right now we are about 5 minutes from the 215 north. Far enough from most of the riff raff but close enough to all the conveniences.(with a reliable vehicle, no public transportation up my way yet)

We own in the 89081 as well. I like my area but I think it's just not stable enough for my taste yet. We we're gone for three years and since moving back, the population boom is incredible to me. Not good or bad just still trying to stabilize, but that is the whole valley. I can't wait until The park that was Craig Ranch Golf Course is completed. And the city of NLV gets its affairs in order.

We like The Lakes too. I haven't seen an area of Las Vegas that we would rather be in at this point.
It is very accessible to the freeway, stores, restaurants and the strip. No complaints.

I probably would have moved to Spring Valley. It is close to all my favorite restaurants and grocery shopping.
I like to shop at the Asian grocery stores for their fresh fish and vegetables.

Good choice, as that's the area I'm in

I quite like the area that I am in, Madeira Canyon. Really the only current drawback is that the closest grocery store is 2 miles away which is Albertsons, which also is the most expensive grocery store. The next closest and more reasonably priced is Vons some 6.5 miles away which stinks when you just need to go pick up a loaf of bread or something.

I like being further away from the hustle and bustle though so I am fine with the distance from the interstate etc.

To do it over again though, I might put more consideration into 7 Hills area as that was my second choice when we were house shopping.
