The majority of local businesses revolve around gaming, leisure, and hospitality. The five largest employers are MGM Resorts International (54,250 employees), Caesars Entertainment Corp (27,860), Station Casinos LLC (13,000), Wynn Resorts (11,720), and Boyd Gaming Corp (9350). With the exception of Station Casinos, these hotel-casinos can all be found on the Strip.
Those working within the Strip’s gaming industry might try checking out downtown for apartment living. Downtown, located less than ten minutes from the strip, is a lively area full of restaurants such as Hugo’s Cellar and bars such as The Griffin, but with a local feeling that the strip does not possess. Though, if you do want to be close to a place with a similar type of atmosphere of bars, gambling and entertainment (but without so many tourists), living in downtown will situate yourself near East Fremont Street. There are a variety of apartments for rent in this area and the further east you go, the cheaper the apartments generally get.
There are a number of colleges and universities within the city that draw students as well as the Nellis Air Force Base. Those stationed at Nellis AFB will want to search for apartments in northern part of the city. The area between W. Craig Road and the Bruce Woodbury Beltway will make living convenient while offering some very good options from houses for rent to apartments in Las Vegas with all bills paid.
Meanwhile, students attending UNLV have many options that will allow for convenient living while going to school. Paradise (just south of UNLV), offers a close commute and an energetic area, but because of UNLV’s central location, living downtown, and Spring Valley are viable options as well.
Although there are certainly benefits to living close to the strip, there are several great areas for more conventional living. Looking for homes to rent in some of the peripheral towns and cities such as Henderson or Summerlin is a great idea for those that love Las Vegas, but do not want to be surrounded by its casino culture.
Summerlin: Summerlin is about a 30-45 minute drive west of the Strip and is one of the closest cities to the Red Rock Canyon National Park. In fact, for those moving to the area and are looking to be close to the great outdoors, Summerlin is highly worth considering. With the Red Rock Canyon, Mountain Ranch State Park and 150 miles of walking trails throughout Summerlin, this area offers recreational activities one might not expect from Sin City.
Besides this, Summerlin has some of the best ratings in terms of comfortable living in the region. Being a master-planned community, shopping centers and community amenities are perfectly situated for the suburban, family-oriented area. Some of the most upscale, luxury apartments and gated communities reside in Summerlin. Also, the community takes pet-owners into consideration with several dog-friendly parks such as the Desert Breeze Dog Park and the Centennial Hills Dog Park. The apartments for rent in this area are more expensive than those in northern and eastern parts of the city, but neighborhoods and atmosphere are definitely worth the value.
Henderson: Another option worth considering for those looking for a family-oriented area is Henderson. Located fifteen miles southeast of downtown, Henderson is actually its own city (and is the second largest city in Nevada) with its own police force and city government, yet is often described as a neighborhood of Las Vegas. There is an abundance of shopping destinations such as The District at Green Valley Resort and The Galleria at Sunset. There are all kinds of different houses for rent in this area, from studio apartments to high-end estates.
Typical with desert-cities, there is a very extreme climate. With summers occasionally peaking at 110 degrees and averaging in the lower 100s, the electric bill is something to consider. Finding an apartment with the utilities included is certain to be a financially prudent move.
