As its name suggests, the city of North Las Vegas, Nevada, is located just above the very famous (and enormously busy) city of Las Vegas. With around 210,000 residents, the city is big enough that there's always something going on (whether down at the park or in the cool of the library). Of course, with Las Vegas just to the south, there's also no shortage of world class entertainment and dining, making it easy for renters living on the north side to have an unforgettable night out whenever they want.
North Las Vegas is very car dependent, but who would want to deal with walking in that heat anyway! I-15 runs though the edge of town offering easy access to Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the public transit system in North Las Vegas is not prevalent enough to rely on a day-to-day basis.
