Relocating from Phoenix to Las Vegas

Situated 300 miles apart across the Sonoran and Mojave deserts, Phoenix and Las Vegas share some similarities. There’s the climate, of course. And growth. But if you’re sizing up Vegas to be your new home, keep these things in mind: 

  • It’s much more than an adult playground
  • The entertainment and recreation options extend beyond the Strip
  • There are many other employment options beyond gaming and tourism

Let’s take a closer look at how Phoenix and Vegas compare, and what Vegas has to offer its residents.

Vegas Is Family-Friendly

Moving to Las Vegas with your family? The city is spread out, but less so than Phoenix. You’ll have some nice housing options in the city as well as in nearby Henderson. And when you’re looking for something to do, there’s plenty for all to enjoy. Cool off at the Wet’n’Wild or Cowabunga Bay waterparks. See more than 200 vintage signs at the Neon Museum or head downtown for some hands-on fun at the Discovery Children’s Museum.

It’s Affordable (If You Play Your Cards Right)

Phoenix and Las Vegas are both offer big-city amenities at a manageable cost. Tipping the scales in Las Vegas’ favor? Not only is there no income tax, but Vegas has the lowest taxes in the nation. The city’s 40 million annual tourists fund most of the state’s needs, from roads to schools. So you get to keep more of your earnings while enjoying a moderate cost of living in a major city. Just be sure to limit your casino activity!

There’s Life Beyond the Strip

Enjoying a great meal and an entertaining show on the Strip is fun. But be sure to venture out and see what else Vegas has to offer, such as:

  • Taking a tour at Hoover Dam
  • Hiking at Red Rock, Mt. Charleston and Lake Mead
  • Golfing at any of the city’s 70 courses
  • A growing sports scene. Check out the NHL’s Golden Knights, UNLV basketball and welcome the NFL’s Raiders in 2020
  • The High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel

Work Before Play

Nevada is a great place for entrepreneurs. It’s also attractive to job creators like online retailer Zappos, which set up headquarters in Las Vegas to take advantage of the favorable tax situation. If you were part of Phoenix’s growing technology hub, you’d find similar opportunities in Vegas. So will those in food service, education and health care.
