    Vegas

    Advertisements
    Anyone there now?

    Anyone stationed there previously?

    Anyone have any knowledge or mind me interrogating them about the random things that pop into my mind regarding life there?

    Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
    Where are we going and why are we in a handbasket?

    They love it.. they wanted to move there after visiting a few times. They moved only a few years ago, but had been wanting to for years prior to that.

    Since all of us kids are all over the country, they chose where they wanted to live as opposed to living near one set of grandchildren. They love the weather and what vegas has to offer them, seems you get more benefits by living there vs a tourist...

    The last part is what I'm hoping will prove true for us. Do you happen to know anything about the educational system? We are moving from a really great one and I've heard horror stories about the Vegas public schools. I'd prefer not to homeschool and the private schools are reeeeeally expensive.

    all i know is they are in the bottom 10 nationwide (like #40)... Vegas, and most of Nevada is mostly retirees or people without children so the school system isn't all that great. But that's all I've heard, i've never been and don't know anyone with school age children there.

    There are websites you can go to to get information on school districts.

    For the benefits.. locals get great deals on casinos and shows and movies and such... tourists don't get that. Like my parents go to 5 or 6 free shows a month, just for being a local resident.

    Yeah. I've been checking out the district websites and then others reviewing them.
