Reason #1: The Las Vegas Weather
Las Vegas enjoys about 300 days of sunshine every year and has an average annual temperature hovering around 80 degrees. While midsummer you might complain about the heat, you’ll still call it a dry heat. When the rest of the country is thawing out in March, you will already be shopping for summer clothes. As the threat of the first snow comes to the east, you’ll still be having pool parties in October.
Reason #2: No State Income Tax
You’ll be surprised at just how much you’ll save by not having to pay for state income taxes. Luckily, gaming revenue helps out Las Vegas locals in that regard. With all the money you save on taxes, you’ll be able to consider buying a home. That will definitely make your friends jealous when they realize you own a 2,200 square foot home and you are paying less than their rent on a 500 square foot apartment.
Reason #3: The Outdoor Adventures
Just twenty minutes from the center of town sits Red Rock Canyon. It is known as an international destination for rock climbers, and nothing will make your friends more jealous than when they see you sporting that tan you got while learning how to belay. Getting a bit outdoorsy is extremely easy in Las Vegas as you are surrounded by local hiking trails and places to mountain bike. You can waterski or go boating at Lake Mead, or even snow ski in the winter at Mt. Charleston . 7 National Parks are within a few hours drive of Las Vegas making your new home the perfect base camp for exploration.
