To each his own, I guess. I love walking the Strip. I’ve lived in two downtowns and both were walkable, one more so than the other (safer), but I didn’t find much enjoyable about it honestly. Just boring stuff mainly.

I read your post like “I want somewhere to walk that isn’t nature but that isn’t too exciting or fun but also that has no shopping anywhere but that’s just like New York.” Cool, the ultimate walkable city where it rains all of the time, sometimes - like yesterday - snows in November, and is humid and miserable all summer. There’s nothing walkable about that to me. It’s both not walkable and not driveable, so short of having an on call private limo, no thanks.

I would never call Vegas a "walkable" city as it's hot as sin for several months among other problems. However, we specifically chose a home within one mile of Downtown Summerlin as we could at least walk to DTS, Red Rock Casino, and many other stores and restaurants. Plus we can drive or ride bikes to Red Rock and do some hiking there. Plus Summerlin has miles of safe paths to walk on. So no it's not "walkable" like some cities around the world but we can go for nice walks from our home... well, our new home once we move in to it.

You won't find walkable like NYC here. It doesn't exist. I can walk to several strip malls, grocery store, drug store, library, etc. For here, that's walkable but not even close to NYC. Remember it is like a blast furnace here several months of the year and no one walks if they have a choice. The bus stop is 1/4mi from my house but again, who wants to wait for a bus when it's over 100 degrees?

For a while I've thought that a developer or multiple should buy up the crap around the Stratosphere and north of there, and make a high density up scale urban neighborhood there (essentially upscaling Naked City).

Is it just me, or is there really not much going on in the District?

I've been there a few times on trips out there. I had a cousin in Vegas, and we both like Luceille's, which is there. But I've never seen the mall anything vaguely resembling busy.

It's just you. The parking lots are full on weekends. The restaurants stay busy.

I tend to agree. DTS is pretty great. One of the main reasons we bought where we bought in RRCC.
