Top 5 Reasons to Live in Summerlin, Las Vegas


Top 5 Reasons to Live in Summerlin, Las Vegas. Summerlin is a largest master-planned community 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 over 150 parks, 150 miles of trails, nine 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.


Here are the top 5 Reasons to Live in Summerlin:


1. Summerlin Parks:

Summerlin offers numerous fantastic recreational options. The Summerlin has a network of nearly 150 parks of all sizes, from small pocket parks covering only a few hundred square feet, to large community parks full of amenities. All 20 completed villages have at least one community park.

A dozen of those parks feature basketball, tennis and volleyball courts; baseball, football and soccer fields; pools; playground areas – and more!  When it comes to parks and amenities, Summerlin is in a league of its own.


2. Summerlin Trail System:

Comprised of four types of trails, ranks in community surveys as Summerlin’s most popular amenity. Spanning more than 150 miles, the Summerlin Trail connects neighborhoods and villages and provides children with safe passageways to school.

Best of all, it provides miles of uninterrupted and varied scenery for jogging, walking, strolling and cycling.

Today there are 10 miles of completed trail along with 215 Beltway, with more on the way – and eventually, this regional trail system will connect to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.


3. Downtown Summerlin:

Summerlin is the only master-planned community in Las Vegas with its own downtown, a stylish urban core bustling with city blocks of dining, shopping, entertainment, office space, and much more. An energetic calendar of social activities and resident-exclusive events makes Summerlin a one-of-a-kind place to live and play.

5. Summerlin Villages:

The Summerlin master-planned community is divided into three associations (North, South, and West), which oversee two dozen commercial and residential villages. And within those three associations in Summerlin, there are 20 distinct communities called Villages.

Within each Village is a variety of smaller subdivisions. Each of Summerlin’s 20 exceptional villages has its own distinct personality, new home and condo architectural themes, and amenities. Best of all, this signature lifestyle is a short drive from the glitz and excitement of the Las Vegas strip.
