Hi,

I am considering moving to the Las Vegas area and would like to find the best, safest, most convenient areas to live in.

-I'd like to be able to do the basics (like grocery shopping, store-browsing, etc, on foot for the most part) A gated community would be good, even 55+. In doing research it seems like the best area would be Downtown Summerlin but I could have it wrong? Are there other equally good safe areas? Are there specific housing communities to look into? Would like to find a single story house not an apartment.

Thanks!

Vegas is a bad city to not have a car, also, we are full.

I'd advise being on the West side of town as it's near the Strip, many grocery stores, other places, etc.

I don't have a car and have done fine living here for two years. Uber or Lyft can be cheaper than a car payment, insurance and gas when added up.

I’d say City Center, any of those condo buildings. The units are around a million or more but you don’t need a car there, especially if your personal assistant has one

Wouldn't recommend moving to Vegas. Ever since the raider move was announced the town has gone down hill.

Ignore the nonsense. If you can afford city center or one of the condos adjoining the strip go for it. It is not good car less but if you can afford that you don't need car.

practically the area around Buffalo and lake Mead is one of the better car less places in town. Walk to shopping, other stuff and restaurants.

Buffalo and Cheyenne also works.

There are also tracts by Tivoli on Rampart and Rampart and Charleston. And you already picked up on Sahara and Fort Apache which is downtown Summerlin.

on the other swide of town there are some reasonable areas around Silverado Ranch. Convenient to the strip also.

Say more about what you want. Buy or rent? Price range

Maryland & Flamingo. You'd be next to UNLV. Clark County is planning to put BRT along Maryland.

Downtown is another option.

I bought at Posada Condominium in Jan 2009. It is basically, buffalo & lake meade..was carless..that was 35,400..stayed 9 months, never used a cab. Rampart was about as far as I walked, and the Summerlin Library. 203 bus in front of the condo will get you to the airport, with one change..grocery shopping was excellent. Sun City Summerlin might be worth a look, and is in a safer area, but not quite as many options as La Posada. My walkscore was a 74
