The way people live their lives is very different depending on the country, region and even state and city they live in. Some people might think that Las Vegas is not a proper place for anyone who has a family. But the fact is that once you get out of the tourist section of the city, you find that there are neighborhoods that are peaceful and quiet with people living regular lives like they do in other places.
One time a citizen of Las Vegas told me, and I quote "the beauty of Las Vegas is that you can make it as crazy as you want and as normal as you want, it really gives you both options." And this is very true once you get out of the Strip and see the rest of the city, with parks, schools and colleges all in a friendly environment.
One of the best things about Las Vegas is that everything is conveniently close to any location you might be at. The city will seem very small in comparison to most mayor cities in America. And most places are a few minutes away by car. You should also feel pretty safe walking in most areas of the city.
The weather in Las Vegas is very dry and hot most of the year, and if you do not enjoy cold weather and snow, you will find yourself very much at home in Vegas. The hottest months in the city can go as high as 104 ° F (40 ° C). So make sure you always have enough summer clothing if you plan in being in the city for a while. It really does not matter in what month you decide to visit; you will never feel like the weather is unbearably cold. But it can get definitely get windy and cold enough to ditch the summer clothes and put on something warmer for a few months every year.
The interaction with people can be a little too fast paced depending on the place where where raised. Many people in Las Vegas work at unusual hours of the day, or get switched from one location to another, and everyone basically keeps busy all the time. It's not a city that anyone would consider if they want to live a slow paced life with lots of room for socializing. The way of life is a little too hectic for people who are looking to retire of be in a more relaxed environment.
If you are good at any entertainment trade, then you are going to have a great chance of establishing yourself in Las Vegas. The priority for most business in the city is for you to have skills at something like Card Dealing, Acrobatics, Singing, Dancing, Acting and Comedy. If you consider that you have what it takes to enter any of those fields, you should definitely give Vegas a shot.
Another great thing about the lifestyle in the city is that there are many places that open 24 hours a day. You could go out in Vegas at 4am in the morning and you could find a great number of establishments open and a staff of people ready to take care of you. The people in this city know how important it is for you to feel welcome at any hour of the day.
The other thing to know is that the housing prices and rentals in general are very affordable in comparison to other cities in the United States. So you can find a nice apartment in a good section of the city for a very decent price.
If you decide to live in Las Vegas, you will find yourself experiencing a lifestyle that is both unique and in some ways exotic, for the simple reason that the city runs almost entirely on entertainment to support itself.
The city of Las Vegas is waiting for you!
