If you play your cards right, you, too, can live in one of Las Vegas, Nevada's best neighborhoods.
That's right, The Gambling Capital of the World is known for its larger than life casinos, electric entertainment, and, yes, some pretty cool neighborhoods. And because HomeSnacks does not want you to take a gamble with one of Sin City's' worst neighborhoods, we've created a list of the best neighborhoods in Las Vegas for 2021 and listed them below.
But before you hit your down arrow, you should probably know a little bit about how we ranked these Vegas gems. In order to determine the best, we had to give each neighborhood an actual concrete score: we call this a neighborhood's overall 'Snackability'. To get this score, we looked at the latest census data on income levels, unemployment rates, crime, and home prices for 26 Las Vegas neighborhoods with over 3,000 residents. Incidentally, this is our seventh time ranking Las Vegas' best neighborhoods, so trust us when we say that these are the best of the best.
And, surprisingly, you won't have to blow your entire bankroll if you choose one of Las Vegas' best neighborhoods because not one of these neighborhoods comes with a $100,000 median income price tag. More importantly, if you're into the whole outdoor hiking thing, Summerlin North is your best bet, if you're looking for the quiet, middle of nowhere desert vibe, the odds will be in your favor if you choose North Cheyenne, and if you're a high roller, definitely give Tule Springs a look.
