I can hear you now… “Las Vegas and water, near each other?” You think I’m out of my mind, or that I’m talking about the fountains in front of the Bellagio. Well, I’m not crazy, and I’m not talking about fountains on the Strip. There are actually several lakes within easy reach of a couple of cities in the metro area. If you want to live near the water, check out these great places: Henderson, NV – population: 252,064, average apartment rent: $1206 Not only is Henderson one of the “most walkable” cities in the United States, according to Prevention magazine, it’s also got Lake Las Vegas within its city limits. About 20 minutes northeast of where I-215 and I-515 intersect in Henderson, you’ll find a beautiful, man-made 320-acre lake. The best part about this lake is that you can spend an afternoon boating or fishing and then enjoy some leisurely shopping in this resort-style community. If you haven’t been to this lake before, you’re truly missing out. Sunrise Manor, NV – population: 156,120, average apartment rent: $934 Sunrise Manor is on the eastern outskirts of Las Vegas and is about a 35 minute drive away from Lake Las Vegas; but, that’s not all. Sunrise Manor is also located about 25 miles from Forever Resorts at Callville Bay on Lake Mead, which offers houseboat rentals and personal boat rentals, an RV park and campground, and a full service marina. You will love Lake Mead. Boulder City, NV – population: 14,896, average apartment rent: $755 Boulder City is 28 miles southeast of the Strip and it’s a great little place. Not only does it offer easy access to the Hoover Dam, it’s right by the Las Vegas Boat Harbor, which has a full marina, a great floating café, beautiful slips, and offers rentals of runabouts, ski boats, wakeboard boats, pontoon boats, fishing boats, and wave runners. You can even get your fishing license here. When you’ve got a city as large as Vegas in the middle of a desert, there’s got to be water around somewhere — not just for agricultural purposes, either. People like you and me need to play on a lake every now and then. So, if you want to live near the water in Las Vegas, rentals in Henderson, Sunrise Manor, or Boulder City are going to be your best chances for summer fun.
