Pros and Cons of Living in Summerlin

Pros and Cons of Living in Summerlin


Pros and Cons of Living in Summerlin. Summerlin is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the state of Nevada, and for plenty of good reasons. It is the largest master-planned community and is along the western rim of the Las Vegas Valley in the shadow of the Spring Mountain Range and Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.


This 22,500-square-foot, multi-generational community is alive with more than 250 parks, 150 miles of trails, 10 golf courses, more than two dozen public and private schools, 14 houses of worship, three resort hotels, world-class recreational facilities, retail and entertainment centers, well-established office parks, a state-of-the-art medical center, and its very own city center.


But before moving into any new area, it’s a good idea to weigh up the pros and cons of that area, prior to making a decision. If you asked certain residents of Summerlin, they’d probably say that the pros of living there undoubtedly outweigh any cons.


Summerlin is an amazing master planned community, but it’s definitely not for anyone. So, before you decide to move to the Summerlin area make sure you know all of the pros and cons.
