Looking for a New Place to Live
We (mostly me) have been looking for a new place to move to. With a population of 2.1 million people and growing exponentially every month, Las Vegas is just getting too crowded. There is too much crime, too much traffic, and not nearly enough nice people here.
Last week we went to Pahrump to check out the town. On the plus side, they had a lot of brand new houses at a reasonable prices, the town was small (30k people?), and it is close enough to access the amenities of Las Vegas (it's about 45 minutes away from Vegas). On the down side, their municipal water system is probably going to be polluted with nuclear waste water soon. Eeekkkk
Today we headed north to check out Mesquite. It is a pretty town, very quiet, and is known as a retirement area (the average age in the town is OLD). If you like golf (we don't play) this would probably be the perfect place to live as there are golf courses everywhere and people can play nearly 365 days a year. It's also legal there to drive your golf cart on town streets so many people get around this way! New homes are more expensive and all are in HOAs, they had really low prices at their casino restaurants, and everyone there was soooo friendly but overall it was a big no way for hubby (he said it looked like God's waiting room, someone to park him until he dies. Eeekkkk).
So we will keep looking for our perfect place to live...
