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 them.

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 shopping venues.

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.
