Review of Las Vegas, Nevada

Horrible-Must Read
Star Rating - 3/10/2019
I’ve lived all over the world-literally. Most of my life in Europe but also New Orleans, Los Angeles and South Florida as well as in Asia. DO NOT COME HERE. This city is crooked, corrupt, morally bankrupt and everyone has an angle, a dark past, issues, IT IS LITERALLY A MIRAGE.

Firstly this is where bad people come to reinvent themselves. Google your doctors, dentists, everyone you do any kind of business with. The city is literally an AYCE (all you can eat) city, a Groupon city, a scam and con artist city.

The glamour of The Strip IS NOT SO GREAT and even if you LOVE it, as soon as you leave it’s another world. Most communities are built to house a workforce mainly for The Strip but also for local businesses and professionals (un-proffesionals usually). They literally, no joke, put apartment complexes up in about 3 weeks, neighborhoods are literally like this: Raze the area of desert-takes a week or two, the street entrance to the soon-to-be community is made, a huge wall straight down where the track housing will go and the wall will be the end of the yard (like all 6 steps) goes up and in another week houses start being built. The worst quality and most repetitive housing I’ve seen outside of Russia. It’s AWFUL. Don’t expect neighbors to be friendly, if your lucky some other neighbors may be new to the area and not yet be jaded but you can’t expect to be greeted, looked at or spoken to, nor expect to know anyone in your neighborhood.

I consider living in Las Vegas to be a punishment for something. After 4 years we are finally leaving in May and it can’t come soon enough.

Sounds as if you have thin skin. Drive Carefully... Come Back Soon.

It sounds like you were expecting much too much from this place. Didn't you enjoy the plethora of world-class entertainment, the nearby national parks, the proximity to LA, Phoenix, SLC, and Palm Springs? Didn't you enjoy living super-close to the airport which has direct flights to almost anywhere at affordable prices? You sound "high maintenance" to me.
