As one of the largest and fastest-growing cities in Nevada, North Las Vegas is a melting pot of desert valleys, panoramic vistas and dynamic development. Many people are surprised to learn that the city is actually separate from Las Vegas, with an entirely new set of attractions and appeal all is own. And, while it may not boast the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, visitors will find no shortage of gaming venues in North Las Vegas, including the impressive Cannery Casino and Hotel.
North Las Vegas is home to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where you can attend Nevada’s only NASCAR event, or get behind the wheel to race luxury cars at Exotics Racing. Nellis Air Force Base is also in North Las Vegas, which includes the Weapons Museum…one of the best-kept tourism secrets in the state and a must-see for military buffs. Visitors to North Las Vegas will also be excited to peruse one of the many museums, expansive parks or impressive golf courses.
The city of North Las Vegas is situated at the northern edge of the Las Vegas Valley, where recreational endeavors are never-ending. Travelers can enjoy just about any outdoor activity here, including hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, sightseeing and camping. Also, the alluring Lake Mead National Recreation Area is just minutes away, with over 500 miles of shoreline to enjoy. Also, Mt. Charleston, Nevada’s fifth tallest peak and most ultra-prominent mountain is right around the corner, which makes for a cooler retreat in the sweltering summer months and a cozy mountain getaway during wintertime. A quick 30-minute drive to the Spring Mountains is the ticket to skiing at Lee Canyon, hiking and picnicking, and also a great place to get up close and personal with the Bristlecone Pine Tree, the oldest living thing on earth. Surprisingly, the Spring Mountains are home to the largest population of the Bristlecone Pine in the Intermountain West and is just minutes from the bustling metropolis below.
Also known for an array of festivities, North Las Vegas hosts Taste & Tunes, a celebration of culture, heritage and music in the form of cooking demonstrations, concerts, dancing, boxing and even a salsa contest! Also, at various parks throughout the city, Movie Madness offers free flicks under the stars on a giant mobile movie screen—a perfect family outing.
At the base of the beautiful Sheep Mountains is a master planned community that encompasses 1,905 acres, 428 acres of which is dedicated to recreational and public use. Much smaller than neighboring Summerlin (at 22,500 acres), about 20,000 residents call Aliante home.
Aliante boasts more than 100 acres of shopping, dining, and the Aliante Station Casino, which houses a movie theater and bingo hall. The community is also home to the Aliante Golf Club, an 18-hole championship golf course. Three city parks, including the 20-acre Nature Discovery Park, give Aliante residents plenty to enjoy along a 24-mile interconnecting trail system. Additional amenities include an amphitheater, linear parks, soccer and ball fields, picnic areas, and arroyo and trail system.
This 1,900+ acre community includes a mix of 6,500 homes and Sun City Aliante, an exclusive 55+ community with state of the art workout facilities, tennis, golf and more.
To the far north of the city the Eldorado community offers modestly priced homes in a lovely family setting with parks and schools within the development. Part of the city’s growing "Golden Triangle", this area is great for first time home buyers and large families who need a lot of home for the money.
