No Place Like Las Vegas
Watch The Desert Lifestyle Video..
Las Vegas natives and long time residents remember when Las Vegas had more dirt roads then paved roads.
But this "Desert Lifestyle" has caused burgeoning growth and turned 600 square miles of desert into a city unlike any other.
Our "Desert Lifestyle" has over 300 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of 70 degrees. We have our hot times in the summer and our chilly days in the winter. But the many folks who are not fans of snow, rain, flooding rivers, tornados, and hurricanes are happy to be here.
While many characterize our city strictly for being the Entertainment Captial of the World, people who call Las Vegas "home" realize that Las Vegas is so much more.
The lifestyle is incredibly unique.
Our children of all ages can enjoy the best in recreational activities.
Recreation in Las Vegas includes Youth Sports Organizations, Lake Mead Recreational Area, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Golf Courses, Parks, and many other outdoor Destinations and Activities.
