There are plenty of single people all through Aliante. It's not just for families. And there are plenty of conveniences nearby us now. We have a shopping center with a supermarket on Aliante parkway across from Nature discovery park, with lots of businesses and a little post office in the City stop.
A Fresh and Easy market is almost done on Aliante parkway/Centennial shopping center. Plus lots of businesses and restaurants. We have one gas station so far, and another up at Costco by Decatur/215. Plus much more shopping over there. There is plenty in Aliante itself, right outside Aliante, and a short drive down to Ann road for lots more.
Some people may only remember Aliante in the first few years of development, we didn't have anything nearby. There used to be nothing. Now it's a busy community. But still has that 'small town' feel to it.

Ive been here since the beginning and watched it all come together. It's still not done yet, lots more shopping going up, the casino plus more housing.

Thanks, Pink! I'm going to have to take a drive up there next time I'm out, and take a look around. It seems that it's definitely still up-and-coming, and it might be a nice change from the Vegas that I see every time I'm out.

There's a Fitness 19 at Ann & Simmons, a Gold's Gym at Valley & Craig and a 24hr Fitness at Craig & Clayton.

OK I am starting to sound redundant, but i thought I would offer some input on this. There are so many suburb areas of Vegas, some might even say they all look alike, and some do. For the record, Aliante is in the city of North Las Vegas. This is a separate city from Las Vegas, with its own city government.

I still believe, overall. .. the best of the city is the west side, meaning, anywhere west of BUFFALO DRIVE. So that means, anwhere from the Southwest of the city, to Summerlin, the northwest of the city. Now you might ask why? The reason is it is a huge area, and it is all new.. residential and commercial... no pockets....

Aliante is a gorgeous, beautiful, master planned upscale area as well, with wonderful people and it is very safe, just like the west side and Summerlin. So please don't mis-interpret what I am saying. And like someone said above, it is a small town feel, it is very small compared to Summerlin. But it is the location that concerns me, and I will explain why. It is on the northern tip of the central part of the urban sprawl.

So, my only beef is getting to it. Let's say you come from the I-15, or even the 95 and head north on say Decatur, you will drive through very old areas with housing and business built in the 1960s, some not very nice looking, and quite a bit of industrial areas right off the I-15, warehouses and small factories and what not. Once you get through that of course, all is fine....

In the summerlin west areas, which is a must larger area, you don't venture through areas like that to get around. that's all i am saying.. maybe I am too picky......?

Default Future Alliante residents....

Hello all,
New poster here, but have been lurking for awhile, my husband has just gotten a job as the new Navy JROTC at El Dorado HS, and we just got back from the whirlwind trip, (we live in Tampa now), we were most impressed by the community of Alliante! and the commute for him wouldn't be as bad as from Summerlin or Henderson.
We drove all around the northwest, looking at new houses, and decided that exisiting would be much better for us since the builders said its taking about 4-6 mo to complete now, and they are under the delusion that savy homebuyers will still pay $200 per sq ft!!!
Does anyone know when the 215 loop will be actually a highway?
I really enjoyed reading all about Vegas before we got there,
I'd be happy to return the favor if anyone is wondering about Tampa or Jacksonville FL, we lived there twice during my husbands career.
As we say here in the south, see ya'll later!
