I've got to say no... It looks like your about my age so heres my info...

It's a great place to visit (if 21+), but not to live. Very few things for people to do under 21... Scenery might be a nice change for a while if your not used to the desert... and dirt... and dirt... and more dirt. And if you like 120 degree weather in the summer than this might be for you...

If your not financially in a great spot this might not be the place for you... Vegas and Henderson are the fastest growing cities in the nation. There are things popping up like crazy. House prices are increasing like crazy... because so many people are moving here from California to dodge taxes (and houses in vegas are very cheap compared to what California pays from what I hear, which explains why house sales are skyrocketing)

Since your 20 according to your profile, and assuming you drive an SRT-4... you might be interested to know my insurance information... being that I'm 19 years old with a perfect record, homeowners discount and (until apparently today) a 3.0 school attendy discount.

I've done quotes for all insurance companies around here and they are all about the same. Without the school discount I am paying 4400 every 6 months, and with the school discount I'm paying 2900 every 6 months. I have a perfect driving record with no accidents/tickets on record.


To me and a lot of people I know, Vegas pretty much sucks as far as being a fun place to live (which yes I know contradicts the rumor of Vegas being the place to be... pssst thats only for tourists ready to spend a good amount of cash for the weekend)

Entertainment wise the city doesn't care about the locals.....


If you like clubs though then you might have fun, it's home to a few famous clubs like ra and seven..

Anyways hopefully your happy with your decision... and if you drop down maybe we can meet.

I pretty much have to agree with Vegas SRT, I'm 25, I can go out to the Strip and the bars and gambling etc............ and it gets old after about two weeks, hell i've only lived here a month and I feel like there's nothing to do here. I avoid the Strip like the plague. Now dont get me wrong, if you like to party then this is the place to be, regardless of age, but I past that stage a couple of years ago. So It pretty much depends on you, If your going to College to focus on academics then I would rethink Vegas, but if your coming to get drunk, chase tail, and in your spare time get a degree then come on down.
