Summerlin is a very nice area. The Summerlin design is used as a model for planned communities around the country. Summerlin has large parks and miles of walking trails. There are some of the best golf courses in and around Summerlin. There are many gated communities and guard gated subdivisions within the wonderful Summerlin community. There are web sites that you can check out the crime statistic just google key phrases. Also www.lvmpd.com will have statistics. I have a video and some information about Summerlin on my Trulia blog. Take a look. I hope I answered your question .
