Living in Las Vegas

Downtown Las Vegas, home to the casinos and hotels, is the city’s most accessible neighborhood, but housing is sparse there. Surrounding neighborhoods where there’s more on offer, are served by express bus service. There’s service to McCarran Airport, too, via express shuttle and regular city bus service.

Vegas isn’t just about casinos, medicine is a growing industry as well. The University of Las Vegas and Zappo’s, the internet shoe store, are also based in Vegas.

thumbnail for Golden Nugget Hotel & CasinoThis historic place is located right in the middle of downtown Las Vegas' Fremont Experience. Go inside for a number of bars, restaurants and pools. My favorite is the Shark Tank pool. Get some drinks, lay out and watch the sharks swim circles in their gigantic tank.
