North Las Vegas is nine miles north of downtown Las Vegas. Gambling and a variety of live entertainment are what bring tourists to the area, but Las Vegas has more to offer than just casinos and flashy restaurants. The downtown arts district sponsors Preview Thursdays and First Fridays. The city's performing arts center hosts the best in national and local talent. The Mob Museum, the Neon Museum, and the Nevada State Museum are a few of the city's cultural attractions.
North Vista Hospital in North Las Vegas is accredited by DNV Healthcare, a relatively new accreditation organization.
Summer temperatures easily reach the low-100s, but the city is surrounded by mountains, so many locals escape from the summer heat by visiting higher elevations. During the winter months, temperatures are in the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. Rain is rare, just four inches per year on average.

Nevada was explored by Europeans in the 1820s and in the 1840s by Kit Carson and John C. Fremont. The U.S. obtained the region in 1848 after the Mexican War and a Mormon trading post near Genoa was the first permanent settlement. Much of Nevada is still uninhabited by humans; desert animals and sagebrush plants, however, thrive.
The Comstock Lode made Nevada famous. The biggest silver deposit in the U.S. was found here in 1859. Oil was found in 1954.
Gambling and divorce as industries came about in the early 1930s. Las Vegas really began to boom in the 1950s and today attracts thousands of vacationers, tourists, business people and gamblers each year. In fact, gambling produces over a third of the state's revenue. Stunning Lake Tahoe is also a major tourist draw.
The state raises cattle, hay, barley, wheat, alfalfa, and potatoes. Manufacturers produce lawn and garden irrigation devices, gaming equipment, machinery and seismic monitoring devices.
Nevada is the driest state in the country with just seven inches of rain falling each year on average.

Which States Have the Most 55+ Communities?
More and more 55+ communities are popping up as baby boomers retire, but Florida is still king when it comes to retirement communities. Arizona runs a close second, and other southern and western states, including Georgia, Texas and the Carolinas, are gaining ground. Developers are discovering a huge market in retiring baby boomers, and they plan to keep building retirement communities, many of which are really mini-resorts.
