The silver state, battle born. Wonderful weather year round, a bit hot in the summer. Great economy and no state income tax! Home of Lake mead and Hoover dam. It must be a great place to live, work and raise a family as it has one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. More churches per capita. The Vegas strip and the whole what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas attracts millions of tourst a year. It is not all nasty, dirty hooker ville unless that is what you are looking for! Most of Vegas is very upscale and very posh. One must have money to hang out here for long. Very low unemployment rate-if you live in Nevada and you don't have a job it is by choice!! Huge Mormon population as well. Nevada is a great state with many out door activies for the entire family.
