Las Vegas has long carried a reputation as a city of indulgence, excitement, and adult entertainment. With its world-famous casinos, vibrant nightlife, and "adult entertainment venues" and extravagant shows, it's no wonder that people often assume it's not an ideal place to raise children.
Las Vegas, once known as "sin city," is more than just its reputation. It has a vibrant community of families, homes and small town life away from the glitz and glamour and tourist attractions geared mainly toward adult entertainment and drunken debauchery. The external city where people work and live has undergone a remarkable transformation over the years, making it an ideal destination for families. If you're considering a move to Las Vegas with your children, now is the perfect time to explore all the incredible opportunities this vibrant city and its surrounding areas, off the strip. Areas such as Summerlin, Spring Valley, Mountain's Edge, Centennial Hills, Henderson, Southern Highlands and Boulder City.
