I notice a lot of young people who live in Meridian, which is two blocks from the center of the Strip.

Since there is no epicenter of the youth scene you won't really find a neighborhood where they all gravitate much like you'd find in almost any other city of LV's size. Most just live wherever and then hike out to the nightlife, which is usually on the Strip. There are some few younger people I know living South Strip, but they say its not that overwhelmingly young, there are many people in their 30s and 40s too around. They like if for the easy Strip access, but end up spending much of their social time at Town Square's bars.

I would think south strip/sliverado is about as good as it gets for the younger breed. Note that my children are in their 30s and 40s so kid is a relative term.

However Manhattan and Park Avenue tend to be filled with the barely matured.

Downtown is also gentrifying and going younger but that is mostly a buy market so more the 30s and older. Some older kids in the lofts...and I hear Streamline is going lease. So maybe another nice place very convenient to downtown.

I was just there yesterday (@DTC) and didn't witness much economic transformation, aside from the uber-expensive Streamline Tower which, as you're aware, may very well become short term rentals.
Even the "art district" is deteriorated and in much need of restoration.

You may find younger crowds living closer to UNLV campus on Tropicana. That is where I would start, apt complexes in that area. And expand towards Green Valley. What type of work do you do?

That is kiddyville. A different question. Young adults with real jobs generally don't care for that scene.

GV is family. You go there after you get married.

Agreed. Being carefree and in college is a whole other world as compared to being the same age and holding down 1-3 jobs.
