If that's what you want, you might check the Arizona side of the border?

We've had coffee on the patio and outdoor dinners and drinks to try to stay socially distant.

A few other neighbors will chat outside for a bit but nobody is inviting others to hang out. Pretty sad. There are a few of us in the area who want to know our neighbors. Any chance you live in the far southwest area of LV?
I feel the same way. We have some really nice neighbors, but I also want to be respectful of everyone else’s risk tolerance and space at this time. I personally don’t care at all, I’m more worried about finding the cold side of the pillow or having the space to download more video games on my Series X than I am Coronasniffles, but other people might have health risks or be older or just paralyzed by CNN lol so I don’t really want to go door to door and throw some big party. I’m certainly excited for when the nothing burger is over though so we can maybe form some friendships with neighbors or, well, anyone at all for that matter. My “I just moved to Vegas and looking to make friends” thing was never a thing at all, so now I’m just going to hit 2 years here without having even tried because of what I see as absolute nonsense.

Don't expect your neighbors to think or act like you--you will never be disappointed.

Personally I find the smaller the city/town, the more friendly the people. I think that's a universal truth.
I've actually found that being around more poor people, the friendlier they are.

Got to take all this with a grain of salt.

Our cul de sac is very integrated and supportive. For instance when we got flooded in 2004 we were unfortunately across town. Neighbor opened the house (had a key) and saw to the animals and then stopped the flow into the home pretty much. When we got home about everything doable had been done..

Nowadays we share lots of stuff. The next door neighbor and I share a gardener who he got referenced from me. He also has a commercial service that comes in once a month to do his 8 vehicles. He shares them with me and if I wish they clean my car. Do a wonderful job and cheap. When stuff needs doing to the tract like well problems or needing road work the three of us get together and agree. We use the well fund and an assessment to pay for it. Our fourth house is a 10 bed nursing home owned by an MD. He does not generally participate but pays his share.

Mostly the whole area is RNP (Rural Neighborhood Preserve). Their are HOAs though pretty much all are gated developments. The RNP rules involve half acre minimum lots. No sidewalks or street lights. And there is a soft easement on both sides of the road around 12 feet wide. Nominally to allow easy equestrian traffic though that is a good bit less than it was 20 years ago. You can also have horses or other creatures. Got a couple of goats down the block which like my dog and he likes them. Have a grand party at the fence when we walk past.

Did you mean to say 'amenities', or that you have manatee tourists?

Where's a good place to meet and chat with people in Mesquite? Would like to meet some folks and get to know the community before I make the commitment to settle. Cost of living is important since I am limited. Thanks to all.
