This area is south of Charleston Boulevard and west of The Strip. It is growing rapidly and is the fastest growing area located in the Las Vegas Valley. The latest population figures place it at 100,819 residents, which is a 3.5 percent increase since the official Census of 2010.
While the primary business activity on The Strip in Las Vegas is all their famous and fabulous casinos, all the main streets in Southwest Las Vegas are filled with retail shops, restaurants, and all kinds of neighborhood businesses.
There are many developments containing a choice of new and resale homes that are up for sale. The majority of Las Vegas homes are stucco in pastel colors and have tile roofs, but the houses in these communities are very often Tudor or spacious 1960s ranch style.
Gated luxury home neighborhoods are popular such as Queensridge, Spanish Trail Country Club, Red Rock Country Club in the Red Rock Canyon hills, and The Ridges which is an affluent and exclusive neighborhood in Summerlin, the new and exclusive country club community Southern Highlands, and the luxurious Southern Highlands and Rhodes Ranch with award-winning golf courses. Beautiful long-established neighborhoods include gated Rancho Bel Air, Scotch 80s, and McNeill Estates.
Las Vegas is a combination of gambling, adult entertainment, nightclubs, dining gems, a light show every night downtown, and so much more. Here are a few of the unique sights.
