Boulder City is really nice. More of a place to retire though.

Not necessarily. One of our friends there is a senior airline pilot. For him it works great. And others who work from home or on away schedules could very well find it works well.. And it is not an outrageous commute. Takes us 45 minutes to get to their home from the far reaches of the NW.

And for our OP much of the knocking of Boulder City is simply the standard resistance of some residents to the arrival of Californians. Claim the CA types are trying to change the place. There is a little of that in fact but most CA types like the LV thing. So ignore the outrageous negatives. Only thing I think is negative about BC is that it is expensive and a small town.

I have been involved in a couple of major civic endeavors where we had a high Mormon population and participation. The Mormons were very helpful and participated fully and fairly.

One can correctly suggest they do stick together.. But then again so do many other religious groups.

It goes beyond that...

They hire each other first.
They let each other know when a job opening occurs, first.
They promote each other, first.
They let other Mormons know when land is going to be sold, and where, first.
They think they are "chosen" and have "special knowledge" that others don't have, when the truth is its just their nepotism at work. Nothing more, nothing less.
They have a persecution complex and think they were mistreated in history, never mind things like Joseph Smith's fraud and the Mountain Meadows Massacre.

Same can be said of Evangelical Protestants, Catholics and Jews.

And in secular life it is known as a network.

Such connections are valuable to an individual and can often help in finding the right person for a task.

In my dealings these were all volunteers pursuing civic tasks. The Mormons were helpful and participated well.

They do appear to like government jobs. But I can't think of what is wrong with that. If it bothers you run or support someone against the Mormon candidate. You can also have a good time suggesting the "Mormon Mafia" is trying to control your municipality. Been suggested locally but has not shown much leg.

And they do have a very interesting history...Which they try very hard to control. But that has little to do with who is the best mayor. I would note that the biblical churches have some horrors to deal with s well...though they do not have to deal with current documentation for the instant period.

They sure do! They'll even create positions for each other out of thin air.

It's funny how the right-wingers among them scream about "government assistance" and lecture people about government "abuse" and "freedoms" etc., etc., all the while positioning themselves ever closer to the trough.

Boulder city and Nevada in general are just a good place to stop for gas, Utah and Idaho also have reasonable gas prices and clean restrooms near the freeways that are accessible to moving trucks. Canada and Antarctica are the most popular and sensible places for Californians to move to. All the best jobs, housing, weather, culture and entertainment will be found in one of those two popular areas for Californians and New Yorkers.

Isn't it the written history of Las Vegas that the Mormons we're the original financers of the strip casinos run by the mob?

Back to the original topic...


Mount Charleston is incredibly pricey (for instance, on Zillow right now there is a 652 square foot cabin with no land other than what sits under it currently for sale for $340,000) The views and the respite from the heat during the summer are the primary draws. Not much in the way of business, just a couple of hotels with restaurants. Boulder City isn't all that cheap either. Unlike a lot of other communities in this part of the state, they have put a strict cap on growth. It goes without saying what static supply combined with increasing demand does to prices.
