Does Las Vegas have some nice family neighborhoods?

It is hard to think of Vegas as anything other than gambling and bright lights.

I have a new family of my own and relocated to Las Vegas because of the affordable housing and job growth. I think Las Vegas is awesome for family neighborhoods. You'll find them at every price point, location in the valley, and size of home! There's so much new development that new schools are being built right along with the new homes.

I find that the new jobs being generated by all of the casinos are bringing in a lot of people in their late 20s to early 30s. This is about the time that many people start having families too. The median price of a home is in the high 200s so it's a great entry level for young families.

Kristal, I am a native Las Vegan and feel that there are some great family neighborhoods in the Las Vegas Valley! In my opinion, Summerlin is the best, being the most popular master planned community in the US for 11 years straight! There are also some good new master planned communities like Mountain's Edge in the Southwest Valley, Anthem in Henderson and Rhodes Ranch also in the Southwest. Summerlin is located in the northwest part of the valley and is about 15 miles from the Strip but is much higher in elevation thus the great views! Summerlin is developed by the Howard Hughes Company (Summerlin was supposed to be Hughes' grandmother's name) and is 22,500 acres in size. There are 7000 acres left to develop in Summerlin and build out is expected by 2030. Prices of homes in Summerlin range from the $200,000s to multi-million dollar custom homes! There are two TPC golf clubs , Red Rock Country Club, Bear's Best in The Ridges and three golf courses in Sun City Summerlin! The best part, is Summerlin's close proxmity to Red Rock National Conservation Area!

Las Vegas is quite a large city now with several and varied neighborhoods. Although tourism makes up a big chunk of our economy, real people with real families live here just like any other community. There are gaming establishments throughout the valley but once you leave the strip area you will see communities like anywhere else in the West. Contact your favorite real estate agent for a relocation package that will help give you more information regarding our wonderful city.

Las Vegas has many suburban neighborhoods that are great for families. Obviously these nicer areas are not very close to the Strip where the majority of the casinos are. If you go a little further out you will run into some nice master-planned communities such as Green Valley, Summerlin, Southern Highlands, Anthem, Seven Hills, Mountain's Edge and many more.

If your family has school age kids, I would suggest you put some effort in locating good schools first, and then the good neighborhoods in the sdholls you like

I think anywhere west of the strip is very family friendly, but then again I am biased . Seems like it's easier to say what areas to avoid 4 mile radius of Las Vegas Blvd is a no go , period ! Look to local , Las Vegas Family Websites to see what's going on in different parts of time with families and the should help you decide where is best for your family . I like
