Moved to Vegas from San Luis Obispo after spending many years in San Francisco. After a brief culture shock I can say that my wife, young daughter and I found an amazing neighborhood in sunny Vegas where we can easily enjoy the strip but also take advantage of all the other things Vegas has to offer. We're big backpackers, travelers and outdoor enthusiasts. I work in renewable energy and the wife is an interior designer with a background as a pastry chef and bread maker.
We love doing things off strip which include checking out downtown which keeps getting better, Red Rock park for hiking and rock climbing, taking a trip to the hot springs at the Colorado River and walking around our neighborhood. Of course, taking in a Cirque show and grabbing some of the best food available on the strip is always a treat.
