Las Vegas is certainly a unique place to live or visit. This city is full of culture and has its own way of life compared to most other cities. It’s the place for the gaming industry, live performances, nightlife and so much more. So, is Vegas just a party town or actually a place for families and couples to experience a normal style of life?
With “The Strip” making it to the front of just about anybody’s mind when you mention Las Vegas, it’s hard to convince someone it’s a great place to live. However, over the past couple of decade, the city has become a great place for families and many are relocating to the city and the surrounding area.
The Job Market
Due to the many new companies moving into the city, Las Vegas has become a very powerful job market with all types of opportunities. Many families have relocated because mom and/or dad were able to find work or better work in Las Vegas than many other parts of the country.
This job growth has forced the city to open up and become family-friendly, which has made Vegas a better place, overall. New residential areas have been popping up all over the city and around the city with thousands of new homes, plenty of great schools, recreational facilities, parks and so much more. The influx of new residents is well supported and Las Vegas is no longer just a party town.
Many travel to Las Vegas for business and pleasure every year without realizing how great this city is for families. Living in the valley provides an excellent opportunity to raise a family, make a living and enjoy the many activities outside the very popular tourist destination, “The Strip.”
Outdoor activities are abundant in the area and range from golfing to off-roading to fishing and so much more. Climbing is popular with the many rock structures and bike events are abundant, as well. Culture centers provide a place for indoor activities, such as music, art and dance.
Many of the upper level schools in the city are far above the national average. Clubs and groups are plentiful and the best part about the city, you can still enjoy the nightlife, on occasions, while raising a family.
