When Donna moved here is 1960, there were probably not more than 100,000 people in the Las Vegas Metropolitan area. Today there are over 2,000,000. In those 52 years, for the population to grown that fast, a lot of people moved here. In fact, such a huge percentage of our population has come from other places that there is a bar called Born and Raised catering to people who were born here. There are other bars that bring together people from other states, and one that caters to ex-Brits where they always keep up on the soccer and rugby games. Many people we run into don't personally know anyone who was born here. So being from somewhere else is not a great disadvantage.
We don't know what your passion is in life, but there is a group in Las Vegas for it. There are lots of musicians, dancers and other types of performers. There are avid outdoor people who love to hike in the mountains and deserts surrounding the valley. There are dog people with clubs and meet-ups at dog parks, and other doggie-centered socials. There are charities which love volunteers. There is a University with a great basketball team. There are children's sports galore, which is a great place to meet the very nice adults who are their parents. In fact, whatever you children like to do, there are other families involved in the same pursuits. There are writers' clubs and poetry sessions and comedians' clubs. There are so many restaurants you won't believe it. There's adult baseball and softball, tennis, and skiing in the winter.
You will have to find something you like and join in with others who also like to do those things. With very little effort you'll find a place or group with whom you feel very welcome. Just take the first step.
Good luck on your move,

Most of the people that lives in Las Vegas moved here from different states. Las Vegas is very unique and friendly. This town is geared towards service and hospitality to guests from all over the world that either come to visit or move here.
I moved here from California and in my opinion Las Vegas residents are very friendly and helpful .
I moved here from Sugarland, Texas 20 years ago. I found Las Vegas to be a very metropolitan City with folks from all over the world. You may not find folks in Las Vegas with the same southern hospitality, but generally speaking, you will find what ever you are used to enjoying in Texas. The phrase "Birds of a Feather flock together" describes the Vegas culture quite well. The important thing is to find a community (church, social, singles, etc.) that you can fold yourself into as soon as possible. Then you will feel at home. But unlike Texas, you have to make the effort here to be a part of the community.
Best of luck, and thanks for reading.
