The Vistas at Monterey Ranch, an oasis with mountains in the background, gives you the impression of an artist’s drawing of what stunning Nevada living should be.
When it comes to the so-called gambling capital of the United States Las Vegas has two, very distinct faces. On the one hand the grand casinos attract millions of tourists each year, while on the other the city and the surrounding area also offers calm and relaxing areas for the residents of Nevada.
Las Vegas is an internationally renowned resort city by virtue of its shopping, dining and arts entertainment. Much of the shopping and dining can be found in the city’s sprawling hotels. For charming small shops, head off the Vegas Strip to the Downtown Container Park, home to many artsy boutiques, galleries, restaurants, live music and even a play area for kids. Also, Las Vegas has 68 parks, more than 100 playgrounds and nearly 100 sports fields. Indeed, Vegas is much more than a destination for the rich, the famous and the gambling — it is also a growing retirement and family city.
The economy feeds off all the tourist activities, with the grand hotels serving as employment centers. Similarly, the city’s convention business is among the most active worldwide. The Las Vegas Convention Center, located adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip, encompasses almost 3 million square meters.
The Vistas at Monterey Ranch in Mountain Edge is located slightly southwest of downtown Las Vegas close to Paradise. Parks, schools and restaurants predominate in this picturesque part of metropolitan Las Vegas. Red Rock Canyon National Park is nearby, offering scenic drives, hiking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking and more, including the Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area is also within short driving distance.
