      Spring Valley, NV

      Spring Valley is an unincorporated town just on the outskirts of Las Vegas. The popularity of Vegas has, of course, contributed to its growth but the area does have its own unique economy and culture. The area has a diverse population and the varied backgrounds of people here has helped fuel the innovation and success of the community.

      Spring Valley's economy is driven by services and entertainment, along with the rest of the Las Vegas Valley. Many workers commute to Las Vegas, which is only a few miles away and there are plenty of jobs available regardless of your specific field. The economy has boomed throughout the decades and that is likely to continue into the future.

      Families and people who want to start a family would be happy to know that the public school system here is extensive, with multiple options for you to consider. There are also several higher education institutions in the Las Vegas area, including the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Nevada State College. These options combined with the public library makes this area great for children. Spring Valley has several parks as well, providing outdoor recreation, and shoppers can find all they need in shopping centers such as Spring Valley Town Center and Rainbow Springs Shopping Center. Las Vegas is, of course, another option for entertainment and residents don't have any trouble having fun here.

      Public transportation is available in Spring Valley and it connects the town to Las Vegas, however it is not always the best option depending on your situation. Many residents prefer cars over the bus and parking is usually inexpensive. There is also a great international airport in nearby Las Vegas, which connects the area to the rest of the world at generally cheap rates. Most people don't have any trouble getting around in this modern community.

      The cost of living in Spring Valley is fairly average considering its size, with the average rent being only around $1,000 per month. Groceries and other necessities are also fairly average thanks to local supermarkets. The minimum wage is currently not much more than the federal rate, however, and that makes the city a bit expensive for some. Regardless, many people have no trouble living comfortably in Spring Valley.

      Spring Valley is a wonderful up-and-coming community that has built itself off of the boom of Las Vegas. Considering Las Vegas is not slowing down any time soon, neither will this city and there is lots of potential for anyone who might want to live here.

      Spring Valley, NV - A Good Mix of Old and New

      One of the best attractions in Spring Valley is the Bright Valley Farms. There you can ride horses from beginner style to advance. They also allow you to feed the horses and have two small trails, with one for running and one for walking. There is also a place called Air Time that has jumping balloons, inflatable obstacle courses and arcade games.

      The Communities in Spring Valley are very very nice, but that may be because Las Vegas Strip is located two miles away. The houses are well kept and lots of parks. I also think that when there are people outside jogging and walking it says good things about a community. There is a great mix of old world charm as well as new modern achitechture.

      The restaurants in Spring Valley are very nice. My original expectation was that the restaurants would be second rate with Las Vegas next door, but I was plesantly surprised. Nora's Cuisine was really top of the line with their service and food. Other great restaurants are Cafe Mastrioni, Kabob Palace and Black Bear Diner.

      There are not many night clubs in Spring Valley but that is probably because the clubs would go out of business. The Las Vegas Strip is so close that no one would go to clubs in Spring Valley. I had a few drinks at Pete's Place and I did like the $5 happy hour pitchers of beers.

      There is next to no shopping in Spring Valley. All the stores are on the Las Vegas Strip. I saw Walmarts, Targets, and a Best Buy but there are no malls in the city of Spring Valley.
