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.
<p>Renters in North Las Vegas won't have to feel crowded in between the apartments and casinos of Las Vegas but they won't be so far away that they can't drive over to the Strip for a night on the town. Vegas is one of the most well-known tourists destinations in the country and is home to world class shopping, live theatrical shows (including more permanent Cirque du Soleil shows than you could shake a very large stick at), huge music arenas, and, of course, plenty of games of skill and chance to try your luck at. When you don't have to dish out hundreds of dollars a night on a hotel room (and when your rent is a steal), you'll have lots more money to spend on entertainment (and giant margaritas) so all the fun of the strip is well within reach. North Las Vegas is also close to the old downtown area, Fremont Street, which is a great alternative to the fancy, more expensive casinos on the Strip.</p>
<p>Summers are far too hot for outdoor activities here in the northern Mojave Desert. Renters may need to stay inside from June through August but fall, winter, and spring are warm and sunny and the perfect for playing outside. The North Las Vegas Parks and Recreation Department organizes a number of sports leagues for kids and adults during these mild seasons. There are about thirty different parks in the city with enough sports fields, playgrounds, swimming pools, picnic areas, and trails to keep everyone entertained. Many of the parks and sports fields can also be lit up at night so that renters can enjoy playing a game of volleyball or softball in cool evenings under the spectacularly starry desert sky.</p>
