LV NV USA

Photos of a different Vegas away from its world famous city center the Las Vegas Strip. I've merged my photos Off and On the Strip so I will post photos I've taken around Clark County on this thread.

Las Vegas is nothing really special. Outside of the strip(which isn't part of LV) and downtown, it just a huge suburb.

^Thanks here are some from the condo complex at home. As far as lawns in some of the homes, the city is trying to curb all the green lawns especially on new developments and now leaning on xeriscape.

As far as much of Vegas being a big suburb oh I love it, if I want to party all night and all day I can go to the Strip. Party 24 hours, every minute of every hour and if I want to commune with nature it's a stone throw away from suburbia.

It's nice to see what the regular Las Vegas looks like.

Are there neighborhoods in Las Vegas, like how other cities have neighborhoods? For example, Washington DC has neighborhoods like Capitol Hill, Georgetown, Dupont Circle, Foggy Bottom, etc. Does Las Vegas have names for certain residential areas or commercial areas and whatnot?

Yes, we have different neighbourhoods and sattelite smaller "cities" within Las Vegas like Henderson and Boulder City. As far as neighbourhoods, Summerlin which is one of the largest and most successful developments not only in Vegas but the country, Spring Valley, Anthem, Green Valley, Aliante, Sun City, Seven Hills, Lake Las Vegas near Lake Mead, Desert Shores, the Lakes which is around my neighbourhood.......

The ones I've posted above so far are within my neighbourhood. I just took those just a couple of days ago.

People have different preferences in life, some like the calm life in suburbia while others on a daily basis like to deal with the congested, chaotic and polluted city life. To each his own.

Freestyle rock climbing in the park.
