Downtown Las Vegas has emerged as a go-to destination for living. Within the last few years, the Downtown Project has transformed downtown to make it an attractive place to live. Many local and small businesses have opened and new development and re-development are in the works. Mid and High Rise living are popular in downtown. Downtown is home to Zappos and many employees live in the surrounding residential buildings. In recent years, the arts scene has taken shape with the area hosting a monthly art exhibit by local artists known as First Friday. The Smith Center for Performing Arts is located on the west side of downtown as is the Children's Discovery Museum. Just outside of the official downtown area is the Springs Preserve, a nature setting over 180 acres that features walking paths, displays, and various events throughout the year. If you're into biking, a bike share program is available in the downtown area.
While the Strip is by far the most popular attraction in the Las Vegas valley, attracting millions of visitors each year, residential living is available for those that enjoy the city center scene. While the vast majority of living is in high rise units, some mid rise options are available just outside of the strip area. The entertainment options are endless when you live close to it all - world-class entertainment, dining, and shopping. Properties directly on the strip come at a premium - both to purchase and lease. The north end of the Las Vegas strip has residential development as well that is available. The area has projects in the works and as a result is not as busy as the south central part.
Green Valley, another popular area which is located within the City of Henderson, has attracted approximately 80,000 residents. The area is popular due to the mature landscaping throughout along with close access to the Las Vegas strip and McCarran Airport. The area was master planned to include golf courses, lush parks, and family venues. The focal point of Green Valley is The District, a central point that features shopping and dining options and is home to Green Valley Ranch. Walkability to The District is good for many surrounding neighborhoods, adding to a healthier lifestyle.
Anthem, located within the city of Henderson, spans the southern end of the Las Vegas valley and is nestled into the foothills of the mountains. A popular area with a variety of different types of homes, it is home to the Anthem Country Club. The area is master-planned to include parks, schools and family amenities. Much of Anthem has great views of the valley and the distant spring mountains. Due to the slightly higher elevation, Anthem does see snow flurries more often than the valley (on occasion) and has slightly lower temperatures during the summer months. Many green spaces exist throughout the area and as a result, walking trails are common.
The Southwest Las Vegas valley has many options for living. From numerous brand new communities to established homes in the Spring Valley area and Spanish Trails, the options are endless. The Southwest is also home to Mountains Edge, a master-planned community that spans the very southwest quadrant and is home to new residential and shopping developments. The area, in general, is spread out considerably, spanning towards the mountains and east towards the Strip. In this area, however, you can enjoy the Wet N Wild Water Park located at the base of the mountains or do some shopping at the local IKEA store, just off the 215 Southern Beltway. Many new commercial and industrial developments are taking shape along the beltway as well. For many years, the southwest had limited development and as a result, compared to the rest of the Las Vegas valley, much open space was available for development.
LAKE LAS VEGAS

It is also close to Hoover Dam and the Lake Mead Recreational Area. Due to its size, a handful of homes are available. Depending on the neighborhood, some offer spectacular mountain and lake views. For those looking to be away from the hustle and bustle of big city living, Boulder City offers that lifestyle.
Sunrise Mountain, fittingly called that due to its east location, incorporates both the mountain itself and the surrounding area.

Condominium and single family homes are scattered throughout with parks and schools in between. Close by is the Clark County Wetlands park, the largest park area in Clark County.
