Why is Southern Nevada a great place to live? Here are 4 reasons that don’t involve casinos!

We’re well aware of the reputation that Southern Nevada has developed over the years. They say what happens here stays here. Sure, gambling and casinos is what put us on the map. But believe it or not, there are other charms to the Las Vegas metro area that don’t involve blowing your paycheck at the craps table. Consider these four reasons why Southern Nevada is such a great place to live.

1. Southern Nevada is awake all night: Some people may think the Strip is the only place open 24/7, but that’s not true. Throughout the Vegas Valley, you’ll find that most grocery stores, gas stations, bars and even gyms are open all night. This means that no matter how early you wake up (or stay up), you can still grab a bite to eat.

2. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area: Just west of Las Vegas you will find some of the most beautiful desert landscape in all of the U.S. Red Rock is the place to go if you’re interested in hiking, biking, camping and especially climbing. Best of all, it’s only about 20 minutes away from the center of Las Vegas.

3. Over 300 sunny days a year: Hate shoveling? Had enough of rain and clouds? Well in Las Vegas, an average of 85% of days are sunny. Southern Nevada is perfect for those who prefer the heat over the cold.

4. No state income tax: Nevada is one of seven states that has no state income tax. This is a wonderful benefit for retirees and many entrepreneurs.
