Moving to Las Vegas – 5 Reasons Why I love Living in Las Vegas

Today I am going to talk about the 5 reasons why I love living in Las Vegas. When people think of Las Vegas, they picture slot machines, glitzy casinos, themed hotels and entertainment extraordinaire.

However, there is a lot more to this world-famous getaway destination, and over 2 million people valley-wide call Las Vegas home.

As a Las Vegas resident for over 25 years, here are my top 5 reasons why I love living in Las Vegas!

1. No State Income Tax

  • If you like to save money, you’ll love moving to Las Vegas because Nevada has not state income tax.
  • The state earns the money it needs from tourism, casino resort fees and from a slightly higher sales tax rate of 8.25%.
  • Since Nevada has no state income tax, it is also one of the easiest places in the country to open a new business.

2. The Weather

  • The good news is that Las Vegas enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine each year.
  • East coasters and people from hot and humid climates appreciate lack of snow and humidity.
  • Winters are generally short and mild.
  • Hot weather can last from May to October, but locals adapt by drinking lots of water and scheduling their outdoor activities in the evenings and early mornings.
  • Although 3 months out of the year it is extremely hot here, the other 9 months of the year is gorgeous.

3. Life Outside the City

  • The stunning Valley of Fire State Park and the majestic Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area offer hiking with incredible views, only minutes out of town.
  • You can also hike Lake Mead National Recreation Area, but the water sports are really where it’s at. Just right down the road from Lake Mead, is Hoover Dam.
  • Take a 30-minute trip to Mt Charleston Ski Resort to escape the valley’s summer heat and mountain bike, hike, horseback ride, or ski.
  • Or head down to Boulder City for more of a small-town feel.

4. There is Always Something to Do:

  • Las Vegas is truly the city that never sleeps. You can bet that even off The Strip you’ll find something to do at all hours of the day. When a large portion of the population works during off hours, businesses serve their clientele at different times. So, places stay open later here.

5. Master Planned Communities:

  • Scattered throughout the Las Vegas Valley are various master planned communities for those who cherish the rich suburban lifestyle.
  • These areas are distinguished by the tremendous number of amenities and conveniences they offer local residents. Because of their sheer size, master planned communities can incorporate extensive recreational amenities like lakes, golf courses, expansive parks with bike paths, and jogging trails.

Well there you go, those are our 5 reasons why I love living in Las Vegas.

So, if you’re planning on moving to Vegas, you have some great times ahead. Las Vegas is one of America’s fastest growing cities, and it isn’t just a great place to play, it’s a great place to live.
