Most people love visiting Las Vegas, but have you ever considered living here? Despite what many tourists think, Vegas is actually a very livable place once you go beyond the Strip. Here are four reasons to consider making this amazing city your official home.
VEGAS IS TRULY A 24 HOUR CITY
And no, we’re not talking about night clubs. Although if you ARE looking for a 24/7 party, Vegas clearly has that covered. What we’re referring to here is little conveniences that aren’t available in many cities. Need to run to the grocery store at 4 am? No problem. Can’t sleep and want to hit the gym at midnight? Most here are open 24 hours. Need to get a spray tan in the middle of the night? That’s not a problem either. Same thing goes for restaurants. While many other cities literally shut down at 11 pm, in Vegas you can pretty much find whatever you need, regardless of what time it is. And there’s definitely something to be said for that.
NEVADA DOESN’T HAVE STATE INCOME TAX
This is a major plus, especially from people hailing from high income tax states like California. Thanks to tourism and gambling, legal residents of Nevada don’t have to pay state income tax. Clearly this is beneficial regardless of how much you make in a year, but for those that are making over a certain amount, this can equal VERY significant savings. Which leads us to reason number three….
LAS VEGAS HAS A LOW COST OF LIVING
Aside from not having state income tax, Las Vegas is a very affordable place to live compared to other cities. Home prices are still relatively low and rent is cheap, as are other things like gasoline and groceries. Despite that, most employers here still pay their employees more than the national average.
THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS TO DO HERE
In many ways, Las Vegas has the best of everything. No matter what your thing is, whether it’s shopping, dining at fine restaurants, hiking, going to night clubs, going to art galleries, kid-friendly events, etc., Vegas has it covered. There’s never a shortage of fun things to do here, even for young children. And if somehow you DO get bored with Las Vegas, there are a ton of other fun things to explore within a day’s drive.
