Moving to Las Vegas

For expats looking to live in a city where there is always something new to see, eat, or do, Las Vegas is the place to be. 

While living close to the Las Vegas Boulevard allows easy access to entertainment and eating establishments, there's a big difference between just visiting and actually having to live next door to all that activity. Suburban living can be found in many areas outside of the big city, whether in the form of free-standing family houses or exclusive communities with luxury homes.

Although Las Vegas is traditionally known for offering a range of jobs in the gaming, hospitality, service and tourism industries, there has been a push to encourage the creation of jobs and to attract employers in other fields such as the clean and renewable industries. Las Vegas also offers many opportunities for professionals in IT, healthcare and local government.  

Las Vegas is located in the Clark County School District which is one of the largest in the USA. In addition, there are many excellent private schools and colleges available.

In spite of its desert location, Las Vegas has a number of great parks such as Sunset Park, Desert Breeze Park and Wetlands Park. Families should also take advantage of the Desert Breeze Aquatic Facility which has indoor and outdoor pools as well as waterslides. For awe-inspiring views, residents can't pass up the chance to spend time at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and the Valley of Fire State Park. Go hiking, camping, horseback riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, or just for a picnic with the family.  

Las Vegas is more than just about casinos and winning big. It offers so much diversity and, more often than not, unexpected experiences for visitors and locals alike.

Getting Around in Las Vegas

Like many other large cities, getting to and from places in Las Vegas can be stressful and time-consuming. That said, Las Vegas is mostly organised in a gridlike pattern and therefore isn't too hard to navigate. The city is also home to a fairly comprehensive network of bus routes, though other forms of public transport are limited.

Buses

Run by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), the bus system in Las Vegas is affordable and highly developed. Service is provided along residential and downtown routes, including the Strip. There are also express services as well as special services during sporting and concert events. 

Monorail

The Las Vegas Monorail is primarily intended for tourists. It serves the Strip, running between the MGM Grand and SLS Las Vegas with several stops in between. 


Taxis in Las Vegas

Cab fares in Las Vegas can get expensive, depending on the distance to the destination and the traffic conditions. However, they can be useful for short distances when walking isn't a viable option. 

Ride-hailing applications such as Uber and Lyft are also available and can be used to summon a cab to one's location within minutes.


Driving in Las Vegas

Expats with a valid licence from another country may legally drive in Nevada until their licence expires or until they are officially resident in the state. Once they become residents, expats will need to acquire a local licence. This involves taking theory, practical and visual tests.
