Here is a suggestion for your dad: why doesn't he come to Las Vegas and check out several areas. That way, he won't have to take anyone's ideas, but he can do his own research. There is quite a difference between the weather of Sam Diego and the weather of Las Vegas. He would have to know that he can handle 116 or so degree temperatures in August. Some people just love it and others can't wait to get away from here as fast as they can. If he loves it, he can choose a place to live; if he hates it, he can find some other area in California.

Here in Southern Nevada there are several active lifestyle communities. The cost of living is also considerably less than most of California. The communities of Anthem and MacDonald Ranch in Henderson as well as Summerlin in Las Vegas are options. Please contact me directly and I will be glad to get you additional information on these communities.

If this dad likes the beach, museums, lakes and fishing, and Disneyland, then forget Vegas.

But if this dad appeals to no state income tax, low cost of living, low property tax, relatively lower priced homes, world-class entertainment, great public schools for the kids, dry weather and dry martinis, then welcome to FABULOUS LAS VEGAS!

What type of guy are we talking about here?
Likes to fish and hunt - NO Vegas.
Like to surf and walk the boardwalk - NO Vegas
Enjoy catching a baseball game or football game - NO Vegas

HOWEVER if you like fine dining, shows , just overall fun exciting things happening 365 days a year and 10,000 bars and restaurants and places to just laugh and have fun - COME TO VEGAS

Give me a call and lets discuss things based on YOUR NEEDS and YOUR LIFESTYLE .....

I would love to help even if we decide Vegas isnt the place...

Hi Theresa,

I would definitely recommend Las Vegas as the first choice. Due to all the activities for your Dad to do here, great prices on housing and the saving on taxes and our close proximity to Southern California. You can always catch an inexpensive flight to San Diego, CA from Las Vegas.

My other two suggestions would be Palm Springs, CA or Huntington Beach, CA or some of the other beach cities in Orange County.

Best regards,

Las Vegas! We have lower property taxes and no state income tax. San Diego is an easy drive from Las Vegas.

If you compare housing costs, Las Vegas wins again!

If I can help you, please contact me.

My suggestion would be Palm Springs but as Mike said, the cost of living here is much cheaper that it will most likely outweigh the 2 hour drive time savings. Las Vegas offers all the same benefits as the desert areas of California (Hiking, Golf, Lakes, etc) but without the high taxes and we have a better airport for other commuting reasons.

Good luck!
