A world-renowned destination town, Las Vegas stands as the largest city in Nevada. With a year-round desert climate, Las Vegas sits in the Mojave Desert, surrounded by the Spring Mountains. While tourists mostly head to Las Vegas for the casinos, hotels, shows and nightlife, Las Vegas sits in an area ripe in other amenities. Golf and other outdoor activities are highly prized, and with its excellent weather, Las Vegas sees a large amount of its inhabitants outside. First class master-planned and age-restricted communities have become a popular feature of Las Vegas and its surrounding areas, and with hundreds of miles of walking, running, and bike trails and paths, Las Vegas residents have a high quality of life. With an international airport, and only a few hours drive to other major metropolitan cities (Los Angeles, San Diego, and Phoenix), Las Vegas is conveniently located for those looking to travel to other cities outside of Nevada. While many people only see Las Vegas for the Strip, the city has much more to offer its residents than hotels and casinos. As the Las Vegas real estate market continues to rebound from previous years, Las Vegas real estate is available to all buyers and investors in any budget.
