There is a world outside the strip,& unfortually it isn,t that great. My advice to anyone who is thinking about moving here DON'T. It is the worst place to raise children, especially the school education. I never in my life have met so many people ( I'm sorry to say ) that are so stupid. It like Vegas attracts them, and the road construction, now come on, how many times does it take to get the roads right. Vegas is known to tear up a road not ONCE OT TWICE, but how about EIGHT or NINE times on the same street or highway & still can't get it right. Oh yeh, let's talk about the greed here. Vegas MOTTO is WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS STAYS IN VEGAS. Well thank goodness, because if I was a city or county offical I would be ashamed for anyone to really knows what goes in Vegas. My family & I are just so tired of the Vegas way & the bs that goes along with it, that we have decided to quit our jobs & leave like many other familes are doing or have done. Maybe someday Vegas will get their act together, but so far there's to much greed for that to happen now or in the future.

I agree with everything Connie said. But the most important reason to avoid moving to Las Vegas if you have a choice at all is that the medical care is SO poor that it's difficult to believe this is a city in the U.S. Most of the hospitals are owned by for-profit corporations, with all the lack of quality that implies in 21st Century America. In addition, it's strip mall after strip mall throughout the entire city, 95% of the houses are almost identical from the outside, and it's impossible to make a left turn into or out of any business. Driving around this town is a nightmare, even without the daily traffic jobs and unending road construction closures. I have a friend who is a dispatcher at a cab company, and he's told me that residents often have to wait two or three hours for a cab because drivers refuse to respond; the tips are better on the Strip and at the airport. Yet mass transit is poor, and the legislature is so unconcerned with residents' needs that they frequently consider banning Uber without addressing any of these other transportation problems. LV is a great, fun place to visit. But you don't want to live here. If it weren't for my job, I would leave tomorrow.

Oh, there is ONE positive thing about LV. It is a very pet-friendly town, and there are many clubs, rescue organizations, and pet-related events. Most rental properties accept dogs. While I hate LV overall, the pet aspect is fantastic.
