From Parks to Parties: Leaving Orlando for Las Vegas

Unless you live there, it’s easy to forget that Las Vegas is an actual metropolitan city and not just a mega-popular tourist destination. The same can be said for Orlando — which is why you shouldn’t experience much culture shock when you relocate 2,300 miles west to Sin City.

It’s been a fun ride in Florida, but a new adventure awaits. What’s it like living in Vegas compared to Orlando? And what’s the most efficient way to move there?

Entertainment

If any city can rival Orlando in this department, it’s Las Vegas. In fact, Vegas is often called the “Entertainment Capital of the World.” While Orlando does theme parks like no one else, Las Vegas applies the same focus to glitz, glamour and neon lights on its famed Strip. If you’re missing Disney or Universal, catch a big production or check out the roller coasters at New York-New York. Try your luck in any of the 100-plus casinos in town. Sports fans can watch the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels play basketball or the NHL’s Golden Knights battle on the ice.

What Else Is There To Do?

Touristy things are fun — even for locals — but sometimes it’s nice to take a break. Excellent dining options exist all over town, not just on the Strip. Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon are easy day trips. Enjoy kid-friendly activities at Springs Preserve. Too hot? Explore the Springs Mountains area an hour away, where it’s about 20 degrees cooler.

Sunny Side Up

Two more things you won’t have to give up when leaving Orlando: sunshine and heat. Average year-round highs in Las Vegas are 80 degrees. Vegas is also much drier (4 inches of rain per year compared to 50 in Orlando) with very little humidity.

Job Market

Tourism drives the Las Vegas economy, much like it does in Orlando. But educators are in high demand in Vegas — the single largest employer is the Clark County School District. Other major industries include government, food service, technology, and ambulatory health care services.

Cost of Living

Living in Las Vegas is slightly cheaper on average than in Orlando, and average monthly rent (just over $1,000) is lower in comparison to other major metro areas. Quiet, family-friendly neighborhoods are plentiful around the city.
