Southern Nevada is a dynamic resort area balancing spectacular
nightlife and entertainment with a variety of nearby outdoor
recreational opportunities. Water sports at Lake Mead,
and skiing, hiking and camping in Red Rock Canyon, the
Valley of Fire and Mt. Charleston are just a short drive
from the Las Vegas metropolitan area.
Las Vegas is a golfers’ paradise with many championship
golf courses and perfect weather nearly year-round to enjoy
Additionally, area residents enjoy a variety of amenities
including neighborhood parks and community centers, cultural
offerings (dance, music and theater), a variety of museums,
a nationally recognized library district, fine dining and
Clark County, Nevada, is one of the fastest growing
areas in the country, with a population of 2 million.
Our 8,000 square mile jurisdiction includes the
world-famous Las Vegas Strip, home to many of
the largest and finest resort hotels and casinos
in the world.
There is more to Clark County than the opulence of the
resort industry. The metro area has grown up around McCarran,
originally located beyond the southern outskirts of Las
Vegas. Today, the airport is minutes from many desirable
master-planned communities in the southeast, including
Henderson’s Green Valley, Anthem and Seven Hills.
The Airport Connector takes airport traffic directly to
the I-215 Beltway, which encircles nearly the entire Las
Vegas Valley, allowing for a more direct commute to communities
in the south- and northwest.
McCarran is a short drive from the University of Nevada,
Las Vegas and other public and private schools.
