Get to know Lake Las Vegas

Lake Las Vegas is a private residential and resort community in Henderson, Nevada, that surrounds a man-made reservoir. The reservoir was created in 1990 with three billion gallons of water from nearby Lake Mead. In fact, the dam that created Lake Las Vegas has almost the same amount of dirt as the volume of concrete needed to build the Hoover Dam. Five billion dollars and several years later, the luxury residences and hotels around the lake were completed, conjuring a whole new neighborhood out of the desert sand. Many of the homes in Lake Las Vegas are built in a Tuscan-inspired architectural style, but there are sleek, modern estates as well. The community has plenty of recreational activities, including boating on the lake, two golf courses, and a village with dining, shopping, and live entertainment.

Living in Las Vegas

What happens here stays here—and you should, too. Las Vegas represents the largest city in Nevada and America’s 26th-most overall, claiming some 2.2 million residents with its surrounding communities in Clark County. It’s also a boomtown in the truest sense: Just over 100 years ago, the entire Las Vegas Valley was predominantly bare desert, making the region the largest to be both founded and fully developed in the 20th century. While the touristy draws of Vegas need little introduction, it’s an equally exciting place to live and work, nearly doubling in population just through the 1990s. Tech, ecommerce, and other sectors support more travel-centric players in the local economy, with countless others holding conventions in the area regularly. Highway access keeps Los Angeles, San Diego, and Phoenix within a few hours’ reach, with high-speed rail service under development to Southern California.
