Las Vegas started out as a watering hole along the Old Spanish Trail, a trade route between Santa Fe and Los Angeles, in the early 19th century. It began to grow in the 1930s with the building of Hoover Dam and then boomed in the 1940s and 1950s.
Today, its shopping, dining, live entertainment and more than 60 golf courses draw millions of vacationers every year. Two sandstone geological parks, Valley of Fire and Red Rock Canyon, bookend the city, and the Grand Canyon is within a day's drive.
Las Vegas has several accredited hospitals.
Summer temperatures routinely reach the low-100s, but the city is surrounded by mountains, so escape from the summer heat can be found at higher elevations. Winter temperatures are in the 50s, 60s and 70s. On average, the area receives four inches of rain per year.

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.

Why Would Someone Age 55+ Retire in an All Ages Development?
While communities designed for people age 55 or better have a lot of benefits, not everyone wants to retire in a development where most of the residents are the same age and often of the same socioeconomic background. All ages community by law cannot discriminate based on age so they nearly always have a wide range of residents, from families and single professionals to empty nesters and often retirees. Many older all ages neighborhoods are organic, that is having grown over time and never having been "master planned." These usually do not have amenities such as a pool, tennis courts, etc. But more and more new all ages communities are master planned, gated, with covenants and HOA fees. Retirees often prefer these to 55+ communities because they allow more interaction with people from more cross sections of the country.
