Thanks for all the responses you guys. I guess I'm not limiting my search to just Henderson but thats where I'm going to be working so I kind of wanted to be close to work. I assumed it would be cheaper and quieter than living in Vegas as well. I can always uber to go into Vegas. Looks like it wouldn't be that far at all and like someone else has said I'd probably end up ubering even if I did live in Vegas. After looking around I'm pretty set on going with a studio in The Well apartments. Anybody know anything about them?

Since you work in Henderson. Someplace between River Mountain and your work. You'll be able to enjoy the trails of River Mountain on the weekend and have a reasonable commute to work on the weekdays.

If he works in Henderson - the best area of Las Vegas metro - it makes perfect sense to live there too. Living in the ghetto downtown and “bar hopping” isn’t the best way to go. It’s called Uber and all of Henderson is safe.

Generally speaking, the further south you go in Henderson, the better (89012/89052), as that's where the newer housing stock is and more affluent/educated demographics. Most of the area north of the 215 (89074) is good as well, although there's less amenities with an older, more residential housing stock.

My brother rented a condo in Bella Vista (Green Valley Pkwy and Paseo Verde) when he first moved out here. Location is unbeatable. You're across the street from The District for nightlife, Green Valley Ranch casino for entertainment, Henderson Pavilion for concerts, Lifetime Athletic (best gym in Vegas), and one of the few Whole Foods in Vegas.

There's condos above The District that you can rent (not cheap), or apartments at Elysian at the District for rent as well (also not cheap). For more affordable options, look at the condos/apartments off Horizon Ridge south of the aforementioned area.

Didn't see this. If your work is up there you should ignore my previous post. Those apartments aren't even in Henderson.

I own a condo on Green Valley Pkwy and Wigwam (89074) and love it; the residences here are pretty quiet, and I'm less than a mile away from the District and the 215. During times with light traffic, getting to the strip in under 15 mins is doable. I think Henderson is close enough to the action in Vegas (Strip and Downtown) that you're getting the best of both worlds by living there. Vegas isn't a sprawling metro like LA or Atlanta; unless you're way out there on the outskirts of town, getting to anywhere you'd ever want to be is no big deal.

Anyhow OP. You heard it from LinkFromSoCal.

"Quiet" is what to expect if you live in any suburb here in Clark County, which is just another word for boring.

You want to make friends though, right? That means urban core. That's why I suggested downtown. For example, I bet the people that live in the air-stream village in downtown have a blast together. That's the type of experience it seemed you wanted to have.

Actually, he didn't imply that at all.

I'm not looking for a particularly extravagant place to live or extravagant location. I just want to make sure its safe and theres nothing weird about it. As far as the place itself, the cheaper the better as long as it is in a good location and is not a piece of sh*t.
Living in a trailer in downtown Las Vegas doesn't strike me as the kind of life this guy is looking for.

I actually went to school here for my grad degree (UNLV) so despite being in my 30s, I know several young people in their 20s who attended the only university in town, and none of them live near downtown. You can still go hang out there every weekend if you wish, but imo, it's always more important to live close to your place of work so as to minimize the only drive you're making ten times per week.

Be a little careful. The area you are looking at is "Union Village". It is being pushed as a place for older veterans. That may go away in the implementation but I would not bet on it. So are you into 70 year olds?

You might be better off considering the Silverado Ranch area (89123). The area south of windmill may work
well. Legions of young strip workers.
