Cool visit but I'd never want to live here - 1/25/2019
My unbiased review. From a guy born and raised in Dallas. Las Vegas is a shock when I first saw it from the plane. I'm used to flat land, country music, and the Dallas Cowboys. Anybody from Dallas or have ever been. You know there's NOTHING out there or in TX period that looks like Vegas. However Sin city is exactly what it is. I'm walking down the strip and I'm getting handed literally porn flyers. So it definitely not a city I'd recommend taking children. 2nd hand smoke is a SERIOUS issue here. The people I've met here are friendly. Some are very rude. Lyft drivers are from all over the USA and the world I guess. Will tell you about their lives and the Lyft driver today that took me to Walmart. I just asked if he was from Vegas. He asked WHY?! WHY?!!!! I'm like ooooookay I'll keep to myself. He picks up a girl across the highway which has apartments and town houses that looks like desert slums. Very poor, old and run down. I take it there's a lot of racism here because people here Read More

Tourist Trap, But Not for Living In. - 12/29/2018
Highly recommended if you want to do nothing but drink, gamble, club hop and shop. Otherwise, avoid. AT ALL COSTS. Vegas is a cesspool of garbage. A friend and I moved out here from Cali two years ago, as the cost of living was (unfortunately) much too high for us and Vegas seemed convenient. With a rapidly escalating cost of living and a rapidly decreasing quality of life, we're regretting our decision to move here. Sorry, but we aren't used to brain-dead zombies with corroding souls. People that worship this place must do nothing but drink, gamble, drink and gamble. Then sleep.

If you're interested in hockey, you'll find a bit of a community here. Golden Knights fans are pretty enthusiastic. Outside of hockey, though, unless you're some highroller at a casino or a member of a golf club, good luck with finding a strong, welcoming community. People here are pretty ugly-and I'm not talking about on the outside.

Unless you're into 350+ days of sunshine, with Read More

WORST CITY ON EARTH - 12/19/2018
I cannot bring myself to give this a single star. Where do I even begin. My family moved here about 4 years ago, I started a business so I have the misfortune of being an employer too. This is without a doubt the most corrupt, heinous and hideous city I ever have lived in and I will say, I LIVED ALL OVER THE WORLD-including Dubai, all over Europe, SE Asia and in several cities in USA. Nowhere on Earth compares to this. I feel s strongly I would go as far as to say the city should be wiped off the face of the Earth-completely dismantled. Firstly-just geography, YOU ARE NOWHERE. This is a city that is 4 hours and 30 minutes at best from the next major city, Los Angeles. That 4 hours and 30 seconds makes a huge difference, there the weather is pretty consistent all year-HERE, miserable summers that you and your children and pets can literally get a burn just by getting into a car, then cold winters. There is Read More

Dirty water. Nasty. - 11/20/2018
I don't agree with the water quality rating. The tap water quality (on the LV Strip) is absolutely disgusting. I wouldn't want to wash my dirty shoes in Read More

Difficult and depressing place to live - 9/25/2018
Visited three different dentists and told three completely different things. Scammers afoot in Sin City. Very difficult place to live from the brutal heat to the heartless and rude populace. People look rough and dirty. No quality, nothing professional exists. Replaced my car battery twice and a/c in three years. Vegas is a fail and I will celebrate my upcoming Read More

Put on hold when calling police - 6/27/2018
Las Vegas is the only place I've lived where I was put on hold when calling 911. Check out the Yelp reviews on Vegas police departments and you'll see. Another time I gave up on 311 when I was on hold for over an hour. This city is truly the wild west where you fend for yourself.

The city you love to hate - 6/22/2018
I have lived in Las Vegas and movef 4 times over tge past 20 years, originally from Detroit area, lived in Florida too, sooo glad to be back, many opportunities here if you are not lazy, Lake Mead, Mt. Charleston, Red Rock, shows on tge strip, buffets. GREAT location, get to coast in less than 5 hours. Vegas is a melting pot, if youre a racist dont come here. We have the Holden Knights, and Raiders coming, great time to be living here, prices going up so come abd buy soon. neighborhoods are diverse and youl find great areas just research it.God is good, Vegas Strong????  Read More

Vegas is no longer fun - 5/24/2018
I am embarrassed to admit this is my third and last time living in Vegas. This place used to be so much fun ten+ years ago. Now, it's a living nightmare.

- everyone is out to scam - realtors, house appraisers, pool/hot tub cleaners, ponzi scheme neighbors, dentists, doctors, HVAC service people, Kinetico water system, Cox is the worst out of any other state I've lived (5 states) name a vendor, they're out to rip you off

- parking fees make planning a night out a HUGE and expensive hassle

- entertainment has plummeted into the gutter. Has beens and even cover bands (which used to be free) now cost $30+ a show. There's a 9% entertainment tax slapped on every show!

- TERRIBLE, SCARY DOCTORS! When in pain get on a plane! Best dr. is the one at the other end of McCarren Airport! I've taken a dentist to the medical board for trying to scam me out of thousands. Look up your doctor before you go on the Nevada State Read More

Las Vegas is EXACTLY what you think it is - 5/20/2018
- No history and no future

- Profound cultural naivety

- Rude, brash people who offer no warmth or hospitality.

- High crime

- Nil job market outside of hospitality

- Two seasons, hot and cold

- Worst retail offerings, stuck in the 1990s

- Worst produce, nothing is fresh, nothing is local and everything is from Fresno and priced like it is from Hawaii.

- No family oriented dining scene, all chains.

- No access to real civilization other than the local scum

- Worst, most dangerous driving conditions due to the 24/7 lifestyle and stress that comes with hundreds of thousands of people in poverty and/or some other type of serious distress.

- Inescapable gambling and drinking scene, it is even in public restrooms.

- Lackluster education system to the tone of slot machines in the short distance.

- No interest and Read More

Better than i had expected - 4/8/2018
Had been coming to vegas for vacation several times a year for about 15yrs before opting to not only move here but also buy a house. Always something to do, very inexpensive, my house has more than doubled in price and the taxes are still under $1k a year. No state tax and 24/7 everything. Good mix of people here. Some areas are more sketchy than others but thats how it is everywhere. And yes it gets hot in June and July but its dry not humid. August is typhoon month and the rain drops the temperature by 10-15 degrees. Overall theres always something to do and cost of living is great. And the only traffic i run into is on the 15 near downtown and generally just use side streets. Read More
