Retire in Las Vegas

Best Retirement City - Las Vegas

See why many believe that Las Vegas is the best city to retire

While some are looking to get away from it all during retirement, others are looking to jump right into the middle of all the action. If the latter rings true for you, retiring in Las Vegas may be worth your consideration. Las Vegas entertainment and nightlife speaks for itself, with a huge variety of options to choose from 7 nights a week. The occasional trip to the casino is fun for locals as well, as long as you keep that gambling in check! Although these benefits of Las Vegas retirement are obvious, the city also has excellent outdoor activities right outside of its borders. For those interesting in hiking and biking, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area has beautiful vistas that can be enjoyed with Las Vegas' yearlong warm weather. Pair that with a low cost of living and tax friendliness, and you have a retirement destination that is worth a second look!
