Moving from Dallas, TX to Las Vegas, NV
Get ready for your 1,222-mile move from Texas to Nevada
Dallas and Vegas may seem worlds apart, but the two cities have a lot in common. From similar summer heat to lots of options for entertainment, there are many ways Vegas will immediately feel like home to people who move there from Dallas. But if a change of pace is what you’re looking for, don’t worry — the city offers plenty of new sights and experiences!
Hot summers and mild winters
If hot summer days and plenty of sunshine are things you enjoy, Vegas’s weather won’t disappoint — and might be better! While the high temperatures reach around 104 degrees (compared to the 95 you’re used to in Dallas), the lack of humidity and an average of 60 more sunny days each year means even more time outside.
And winter weather isn’t something to worry about either, with Vegas receiving 0.3 inches of snow per year on average and temperatures only dipping down to the upper 30s (similar to the 1.2 average inches of snow and low temps in the mid-30s in Dallas).
Sporting events and festivals are easy to find
While you won’t have the same teams to root for in Vegas, Dallas sports fans still have plenty of opportunities to cheer on the home team. Be sure to get tickets for Vegas teams, including the Raiders (NFL), the Knights (NHL) and the Vipers (XFL). If music is more your scene, plenty of festivals are hosted each year in Vegas, and many musicians tour or have residencies in venues throughout the city.
No state income tax
Neither Texas nor Nevada has a state income tax, and Vegas offers some of the lowest personal property taxes in the U.S.!
Explore what makes Vegas unique
Moving wouldn’t be an adventure if there weren’t new things to explore. Here are some things to look forward to in your new city:
- 50+ casinos on and around The Strip
- 4,000+ restaurants throughout the city
- An affordable housing market
- Only 130 miles to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon (just a 2.5-hour drive!)
