The Lakes is a beautifully planned community in the Las Vegas valley area. It spans roughly 2 square miles,in the western part of Sin City just neighboring Summerlin. Beyond location this area is almost resort like.
Best Of Both Worlds
For those of us who appreciate the almost 365 days of sunny weather desert living provides us, but still yearn to see water, this might be just the place for you. Some have even said its like living in Florida without the humidity and the giant bugs. Its a great area to live in for those who might feel a little land-locked.
The Lakes was built in the mid 1980’s around several man-made lakes. With plenty of beautiful mature vegetation, and actual lake front views, you truly almost forget you’re in the desert. Almost feels like cheating! It feels like you are in your own private resort world, with still convenient access to the strip.
Not Just For Show
The lakes in this well preserved neighborhood are not just for show. Residence have access to do everything from paddle boating, to sailing. So for those of you who miss the lack of water in the desert, get your water sports fix here.
If water sports is not your cup of tea, than there are plenty of great dining options to take advantage of the view. Or use the many fantastic jogging and cycling paths that wind throughout the community.
