One of the top retirement destinations in the country, the Las Vegas region, has cemented its status as a high-end location thanks to its world-class entertainment and dining options, as well as its year-round warm weather.
While many 55+ communities in metropolitan areas are located in the suburbs, several Las Vegas area communities buck that trend. While there are a few located in suburbs like Henderson, there are a few just a short distance away from popular spots like the Las Vegas Strip, Fremont Street, and of course, the many extravagant casinos and resorts that put Las Vegas on the map.
