What's It Like Living in Las Vegas?
Las Vegas, Nevada is more than a city of slots and roulette. It's a family-friendly, pet-friendly city that offers plenty in the way of outdoor and cultural activities that have absolutely nothing to do with gambling. It's truly a city full of surprises!
Beyond being home to top notch magic performances, bustling casinos, and big name concerts, Las Vegas has plenty to offer when it comes to cultural activities. Art and music lovers enjoy the Las Vegas Philharmonic, the Las Vegas Art Museum, and the Las Vegas Museum of Natural History. And, just a few minutes drive from the flashing lights and noise of the city, you'll find an abundance of outdoor activities. After all, Las Vegas is situated in the middle of the Mojave Desert. Take a nice hike in Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Red Rock Canyon, or The Valley of Fire. (Ok, that last one sounds daunting, but it's actually the oldest state park in Nevada!)
Nearly 40 million tourists visit Las Vegas on an annual basis. While you may think this is a drawback if you're a resident, it's actually great for the local economy and one reason Nevada can afford to have the lowest taxes in the entire nation. In fact, Nevada is one of only seven states in the nation that has zero income tax.
Renting in Las Vegas: Furnished Apartments, Studios & More
Rental rates are surprisingly affordable, especially considering the access that residents have to world-renowned entertainment.
