Lilly Graves visited Las Vegas and made a trip to Summerlin while considering relocating. Her experience is captured in TRAVEL+LEISURE.
From pro sports to big nature, from cycling to shopping, the cost of living and the quality of life are recognized as major allures. Graves writes, “Two unexpected things happened: Not only did I find the area of Summerlin entirely enjoyable, but I also wanted to share it with others given its pedestrian-friendly downtown, desert lifestyle, quality food scene, and easy access to both a major airport and the great outdoors.”
More people have been moving to the Las Vegas area from California for one major reason: taxes. The state of Nevada, like eight others in the U.S. (Alaska, Florida, South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming), has no personal income taxes — and certain events of the past few years seem to have inspired many Americans to reevaluate finances and change their home bases.
