|As you might expect in a large resort city that is also the gambling capital of the world, the crime rate is quite high vs. the U.S. average.|
There are several medical centers in Las Vegas and surrounding area including Centennial Hills Hospital and Medical Center, Desert Springs Hospital, and Mountain View Hospital.
RTC Transport is an extensive public bus system; there are also private carriers in the area. McCarran International Airport provides convenient service to just about anywhere. (plus you can play the slots while waiting for your flight). Amtrak uses its Thruway Motorcoach to connect with the railroad station in California.
What people are saying about Las Vegas
|LOL rferrazz those drivers must be from Philadelphia PA. (I can say that I am from the area) Planning on coming out to look at Sun City Summerlin in March. I have a friend who moved there 2 years ago and loves it. In my mind I am already there. Not sure I am really on board with a retirement community even though I am 66 and hubby will be 70 soon. Maybe it is just denial. Are you in a Retirement community? and if so do you like it. I know you haven't been there that long but how is the resale of homes there. I guess I am thinking in terms of if we move there and in 5 years we want to move. I see a lot of houses on the market and that concerns me a little. All of your pluses are right up our alley. Especially one of them LOL.|

|Las Vegas Retirement|
|Wife and I moved here spring 2016 to live closer to children, one in CA and one in CO. Love the weather. Hottest months are June and July but bearable if you limit outdoor activity to mornings and spend afternoons in air conditioned casinos. Prevalent sunshine nearly every day of year along with mild to warm temperatures (except as noted above) and lack of rain/snow/ice/cold are awesome. Other pluses are no state income tax, great scenery, proximity to national parks, legal cannabis, new expansion winning hockey team and reasonable cost of living, especially compared to CA. One minus newcomers should be aware of is the prevalence of distracted/negligent/discourteous/ speeding drivers. Running of red lights and cutting into lanes w/o signaling is quite common.|
