13 things to be thankful for in Las Vegas
With Thanksgiving on the horizon, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite things about Las Vegas. Here they are in no particular order:
We’re the most fun city in the U.S.
This one comes as no surprise. Thanks to its vibrate nightlife and party scene, along with other entertainment and recreation options, Las Vegas beat out 149 other cities to top WalletHub’s list of the most fun cities in America.
Our state is great for women’s equality
Nevada ranks first in “workplace environment” and “political empowerment,” which helped the Silver State earn the number two spot on the list of best states for women’s equality. (Hawaii topped Nevada largely because of its “education and health” rank.)
We’re one of the best big cities to live in
Las Vegas ranks third in “quality of life” compared to 62 other big cities. That includes factors like average number of hours worked per week, commute time, number of parks/playgrounds, number of bars and coffee shops, etc. We were also ranked 8th overall as the best city in the U.S. to live in, according to WalletHub. Not too shabby!
Gamers love it here
Those who play video games have plenty of choices to get their fix in Sin City. We have more video game stores per capita than any other city, and we’re also tied with Orlando, Florida for the most arcades per capita. Overall, Las Vegas ranks seventh on WalletHub’s list of best cities for gamers.
Holidays are more fun in Las Vegas
The sheer number of attractions, restaurants, parties, and more puts Las Vegas over-the-top when it comes to celebrating the holidays. We’re ranked sixth overall on the list of best cities for Valentine’s Day, fourth when it comes to Halloween, and 14th for Easter celebrations.
Life is good for our seniors
Compared to 150 cities across the U.S., Las Vegas ranks tenth for the best places to retire. According to WalletHub, our city’s best qualities are “affordability” (factors like taxpayer-friendliness and adjusted cost of living) and “activities” (including senior centers, golf courses, bingo halls, volunteer opportunities and more).
