Green Valley (Henderson)

As a resident of Henderson, you will find yourself having easy access to the city yet enjoying the suburban feel of upper-class country clubs. Green Valley is a scenic neighborhood that’s a perfect fit for the Wildhorse and Legacy golf courses. This beautiful neighborhood is in close proximity to The Galleria Mall and many other shopping plazas. Along North Green Valley Parkway you will find a wide selection of apartment communities ready to offer you a quaint lifestyle while still keeping your financial situation in mind.

Silverado Ranch (South Las Vegas)

Close by the scenic Green Valley, you will find Silverado Ranch. This community has easy freeway access right at the 215 and Eastern. Along Eastern Avenue, you’ll have plenty of restaurant choices within arm’s reach of your new home. If you’re interested in living in a nice, accessible neighborhood on a pretty penny, Silverado Ranch offers apartment living within the area of Bermuda Avenue and Silverado Ranch Avenue.

On the edge of Silverado Ranch, you will also find that South Las Vegas Boulevard has a number of affordable apartment communities. Although you’re on the same boulevard as the Las Vegas Strip, the south end offers some distance between you and the hustle and bustle.

Spring Valley (Southwest Las Vegas)

Spring Valley is nestled in the southwest part of the valley and offers definite potential for budget renters. Just two miles west of the Strip, it allows you to be more a part of the metro lifestyle; it’s a must-see stop while hunting for budget rentals. Then there is the west end, which runs right alongside a mountain border close to local shopping and the famous water park, Wet N Wild. You will find the nicest apartment communities west of Durango.

The Lakes (Summerlin Area)

Everyone knows Summerlin as a prestigious community that offers fine dining, nearby parks and recreation, along with the misconception that you have to have a lot of money to live its lifestyle. Although Summerlin can be on the more expensive side of the Las Vegas area, there is a beautiful master-planned community only one block east called The Lakes.

The Lakes is prestigious all within itself, with many neighborhoods offering breathtaking views of Red Rock Canyon and the city lights closely situated in the area of Sahara and South Grand Canyon. The Lakes will give any urbane young professional new to the area the opportunity to enjoy advancement.

Centennial Hills (Northwest Las Vegas)

On the border of the northwest side of town, you will enter into Centennial Hills just two exits before you head into Mount Charleston, which will surely paint a picture of what this neighborhood has to offer.

Although Centennial Hills makes quite a drive to get into the city, an RTC bus makes its way directly from the Centennial Hill bus station straight to the Las Vegas Strip with no added stops. This allows you to avoid both the responsibility of the rush-hour grind and the risk of exceeding your gas budget. Along Osa Blanca, there are tucked-away apartment communities that offer a resort-like feel while staying within your means.



There you have it. Even those who are on a budget can still enjoy being a part of some of the nicest neighborhoods in the area. So whether you would love living in Centennial Hills for an outdoor adventure or being only two miles away from the Las Vegas Strip in Spring Valley, your new home is waiting for you. After choosing the neighborhood that will best fit your needs, use our Las Vegas apartment locator to help you pinpoint a nice apartment community that fits your budget.
