Its these communities that make Las Vegas such a special place to live and why so many of us are able to call this desert home. Read on to discover Las Vegas’s best suburbs to call home.
Boulder City is a small, peaceful community 26 miles southeast of Las Vegas.

Summerlin South has experienced a population boom over the last 15 years with an increase of nearly 575% to a lofty 24,061 people, so we aren’t the only ones who think it’s a great place to live!

Henderson is the gateway to Southern Nevada. It is also one of fastest-growing metro areas in the United States and was voted one of the best places to live in the United States. Several celebrities call Henderson home (so it must be good!). Thousands of amenities keep the locals busy such as parks, golf clubs, and hiking trails. Top notch schools, luxury gated communities, and deluxe 55+ communities make Henderson one of the best places to live in the country.
Mesquite has grown over the last decade as Baby Boomers are looking for that place to retire but don’t want to call Las Vegas home. Mesquite has the weather, the golf clubs, the amenities, and has kept its small town flavor despite its population growth (over 80% between 2000 – 2009). The cost of living is low compared to other retirement communities and the crime rate is low. Nearly 20,000 people call Mesquite home and with it only being 90 minutes away from the big city, it is most certainly one of Vegas’s best suburbs.
Enterprise is minutes away from some of the best shopping and dining experiences available in the Las Vegas area.

The average home value is $323,227 and the average household income is $84,325.
