A personal guide on living in Las Vegas, or why NOT to live in it, from someone that's been living in it for a year. Please enjoy, and feel free to add your own pros and cons.

Pros: Low cost of living, the Summerlin and Henderson areas, plenty of juice bars, Town Square shopping center, great libraries, Container Park

Cons: 350 days of sunshine, hordes of people with insanely ugly personalities (drunk and sober, men and women), daily chemtrail sprays (ignore if you're blindly loyal to your government and think the planes are just sprinkling pixie dust), car accidents being a daily occurrence (yes common in many places but people in Vegas seriously can't drive), limited activities if you're not a fan of The Strip, supremely ugly, filthy people (and I'm NOT talking about APPEARANCE).

Opinions on the weather vary, I know, as so many people enjoy living where there's nothing but sunshine year-round. I'm a seasons girl so seeing month after month of sunshine gets pretty boring, putting it very lightly.

Opinions on the chemtrails I know vary, as those trusting their lives to the government are all too quick to use the phrase 'conspiracy theorist'. Planes are in the sky on a daily basis spraying mist, and then a day later its conveniently 'cloudy'. Wow. But a lot of people think it's just water mist or magic dust. That doesn't cancel out the other points.

About the rude people-many people out here are rude enough to make New Yorkers look like Disney Princesses. I kid you not. Grown people out here, in various ages, races and gender, are so crude it's sick. The whole 'oh well it's Vegas, people are weird' doesn't work.

I didn't include the casinos because people either live for gambling or they don't. They already know about the many casinos and bars. People come here to do nothing but gamble. Old people with oxygen tanks do nothing but gamble. If you like gambling, you already know about Vegas.

Is Vegas family-friendly? Unless you live in either Summerlin or Henderson, NO. No no no and no again. Just no.

If you need a place to raise money for a few months, this is it. But that's my biggest pro.

Please feel free to add your own pros and cons.

Someone needs to go to a science class and learn about contrails.

A lot of sunshine is a pro, not a con.

I have a family nowhere near Summerlin or Henderson.

You sound like you don't know much about Las Vegas.

Your cons outweigh your pros, you should probably relocate to somewhere with the inverse.

What exactly are they spraying and why Las Vegas?
Where do they not spray and have you considered moving there?

The Chemtrails, I thought it was referring to the trail of nasty smoke the vape people leave and then lost it with the clouds. For another second I thought she was posting about Florida and Zika.

The people in Vegas are very Diverse from the good to the bad. Just think you have the good; people who would be regulars in the 60s TV shows very friendly neighbors to the bad; current generation of reality show people who yell, scream and act stupid and you put them all in the same small valley and this is Las Vegas.

Belldandy07, huh?

OTAKU!!!

Just kidding, Im otaku myself. I have been once 1983. I recognize your handle as the main female character in anime/manga Ah, Megami-sama.

Chem trails? An Art Bell fan as well.

Dirty people? They're probably homeless. I do have some homeless friends; I was one myself twice. My friends and I were never dirty. It just depends on the person.

Snoberlin is a rich area, and Henderson is a suburb of Las Vegas.

The local folk are ok, you're just dealing with tourists. I used to live up in Centenial Hills. It was a nice area. How long have you been in Vegas? I've been here for 11 years now. It's ok, I do have friends.
