The question is subjective and why entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you, therefore research on your own and take the time to visit more than once. A good place should be dictated and defined by personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle, etc.

I've lived in Las Vegas since 1992 and it seems as though the "nice" part of town is always under construction:) Seriously, you can get a fair assessment of an area based upon the age of the homes within the area. The older the homes (traditionally), the higher the crime rate, the lower the standard of living, and less proximity to amenities (parks, shopping, community center, etc.).

Evey part of the valley has a different vibe and is a personal choice.

It honestly depends on what you consider "nice." For some people, it is being near their church; for others, it is nearness to the Strip for entertainment; others still, want nearness to a casino so that they can go there all the time. So, if you can define what is "nice" for you, I would be glad to help you.

Hi, I am recently retired and like an area like here in Moorpark in CA quiet, less traffic, clean and very low crime.
I was a teacher and before retirement I also worked for a bank security and because of my science back ground I am trying to start a related business.
Thank you for your time, Ge Be Param

I see you may live in Las Vegas? If not, I assist many clients who live out of state and I would be delighted to assist with your search. In addition, if you come in person, it is an opportunity to see what areas of Las Vegas excite you and which areas are not in your wheel house of preference. Sometimes the best photos can be misleading. If you want to see an area virtually, check out Google Maps, take a look around. You can always defer to the maps to see if local amenities are preferable. As others have mentioned, hobbies, interests, schools, proximity to work, crime rates, community amenities, and budget and other facets play vital role in location choice.

I am not an agent and can't represent you in a transaction (there are many qualified agents here); however, I know Moorpark, CA. and have a pretty good idea of what you'll be looking for in Las Vegas as something comparable. You will likely find Green Valley, Anthem, or Summerlin to your liking. Candidly, the Southern-most part of Green Valley is near "The District" (you can Google it) and there are a number of community-related events going on nearly every week of the year.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Valley,_Henderson

Anthem, priced a bit higher, is a bit "slower paced" but also (as a community) offers nearly as much but tends to be an "older" (40's, 50's, 60's) crowd. I use the term "older" loosely because..well...I'm part of the crowd I'm referring to.LOL Anyhow, If you only want to spend a couple hundred thousand, Green Valley is a good choice. If you're comfortable spending $300k-$400k, in my humble opinion, Anthem is a better buy (there are cheaper homes within Anthem but, much like anything else, you get what you pay for). Anthem and Green Valley are both within the township of Henderson. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henderson,_Nevada

I'm not going to elaborate upon Summerlin because that area is so large (it encompasses 34 square miles) that it includes a standard of living across the entire spectrum (from the mid $100s to +$3M). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summerlin,_Nevada

Summerlin is about 20 Miles from the Strip, Green Valley is approximately 15 miles from the Strip, and Anthem is about 20 Miles from the Strip. Hopefully this helps, welcome to the valley:)
