First off I live here in Vegas I work at a loan place where I can see all different diversities of people. People in Vegas don't have manners and don't take appreciation for their things. There are other things about Vegas like the strip is a whole other world people who live in Vegas don't really go to the strip. Jobs are all over but it depends on what you are looking for that would determine if it is easy to get one or not. It doesn't matter if you have experiences you have to have licenses and certificates for work. Also everyone no matter what culture or nationality or anything lives here so what's nice is not much judging which is good. Car insurance is an out rage high. Expect your insurance to triple when you move here. It's because people are horrible drivers. Rent I feel is all over the place find a budget you can pay and you will find it! Most the time there isn't like brackets. It is the cheapest city to live in and be around everything. I will be having a child soon and hear that the schools are horrible and to take them to private schools so we will see how that goes. But if you want something different and new try it out. It's not horrible people don't know Vegas take it from a local who will tell you straight up how it is. Don't listen to people who think they know Vegas! You won't be able to under stand Vegas until you truly give it a try.

As a 10+ year Las Vegas resident considering retiring as an expat overseas, I made a handy Numbeo crowd-sourced comparison between selected American and international cities.

Las Vegas was compared to American cities Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York.

Las Vegas was also compared to international expat cities in Mexico, Panama, Thailand, Vietnam, China, India, Turkey, and Egypt.

I want to move from Tucson to Las Vegas how is work is it easy to find work? because its hard to find work in Tucson. I have experience in paint and body. My wife has experience in HR in a fast pace hospital.
#JR on Oct 19, 2014 :
Lived in Vegas for eight years. I hated it... but I think the mountains are lovely. There are some *decent* people there. People actually are good drivers (aside from the drunks at night, but this is expected with the Strip).

There's really no reason to make a "life" there with the cancer of gambling around every corner.

I always compared it to Phoenix, and said Phoenix was better, but I now find Phoenix is more aggressive, and full of more assholes, and actually dirtier and more run down. As weird as Vegas is, people are -- by and large -- pretty nice. The trouble is, you're just not going to find an educated crowd there. Despite that, they still try to have cultural events there, they make an effort, maybe more even than Phoenix.

I have never been there before but my dream is to move out to Nevada one day just me and my un born son.
#VegasImport on Jun 17, 2014 :
What is really missing is the car insurance and other insurances paid monthly: health, life, auto and residence. Please update the website to account for that. Also let's account for the wide variety of areas in Vegas which cause rents to vary by several hundreds of dollars. People do in fact pay a premium to live west of the strip in gated areas where the rents are usually 25% higher than in North and East LV.
#russell on Apr 05, 2014 :
I'm looking to rent a home in Henderson/Vegas around the 9 op to 1200 market range. Anything but north LV.how much would you recommend saving to move from reno nv. My wife and I were think 6k. I've been doing research but not getting a consistent ballpark range
#james on Mar 19, 2014 :

#Roy on Jan 12, 2013 :
