Things You Should Know About Nevada

After all, getting an idea of what life is like in Nevada will be helpful in allowing you to make your final decision about moving there. For this reason, our movers have compiled a list of reasons that you should consider moving to Nevada.
Nevada, also known as the Silver State, has a population of 3.09 million people as of 2019’s estimates. While the state of Nevada is most popularly known for its gambling capital, Las Vegas, there is much more to this desert state than that. From good job opportunities and a robust economy to a reasonable cost of living and the fact that the state has no income tax, there are a variety of reasons that moving to Nevada is so popular.
According to the World Population Review, the population of Nevada has increased from 2.7 million in 2010 to 3.09 million as of 2019 as a rapidly increasing number of people make their way to the Silver State. So what specifically draws so many people to Nevada each year?
One of the first reasons that moving to Nevada is so attractive to so many people is the fact that Nevada is one of very few states that have no state income tax. Due to the fact that the state generates enormous revenues from its strong tourism industry, casinos, and entertainment venues, there is always funding for the state’s infrastructure and other requirements. Overall, residents of Nevada can expect to pay less in overall taxes than many other places in the country.
Another reason to consider moving to Nevada is found in the state’s growing job market. While jobs in hotels, casinos, and restaurants make up a good chunk of Nevada’s job market, there are various job opportunities to be found in many other fields. Some of the key industries where you can find employment in Nevada include mining, construction, aerospace and defense, energy, information technology, and health care. The tech startup scene is also growing rapidly in Nevada, particularly in Reno, where major tech startups such as Bombora, Tesla, Breadware, and Filament are based.
Finally, Nevada is also a great place to call home for those who love the outdoors. Nevada is a land of plenty of natural beauty. With diverse landscapes ranging from mountains and deserts to breath-taking valleys and rivers, there is something for everyone in Nevada! Nevada is also home to various state parks including Great Basin National Park and Red Rock Canyon.
Popular Towns to Visit in Nevada
Now that you know more about what life is like in Nevada as a state, it’s time to narrow our focus to the most popular towns to visit and live in Nevada. For the purpose of this article, we’ll be talking about the most popular town in Nevada: Las Vegas.
Las Vegas, known as Sin City to some, is known across the world as a hub for world-class entertainment and high-end hospitality. What may surprise you about the Entertainment Capital of the World, however, is that there is more to this popular Nevadan town than glitz and glamour. In fact, Las Vegas offers its fair share of family-friendly suburban neighborhoods, historic locations, and wonderful restaurants.
One of the best reasons for living in Las Vegas is that rent is surprisingly affordable. Compared with both the national average and other major cities within the United States, the cost of housing is fairly budget-friendly. The median price of a home in Las Vegas is currently $307,000 while condos and townhomes are even more affordable at an average price of $171,250.
Las Vegas is also home to a diverse economy. While Las Vegas was once a place where the wealthiest residents were valet attendants at luxury hotels, Las Vegas’s economy is much more diverse today. While tourism is still the dominant employment category in Las Vegas (44 percent of the total workforce), other industries such as aerospace, information technology, and health are gaining traction.
If you are a foodie, Las Vegas’s food scene has much to offer you. In fact, Las Vegas’s food scene rivals that of New York City, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Some of the most popular restaurants for residents and tourists alike include Joel Robuchon, Le Cirque, Spago, and Momofuku and that’s just on The Strip!
Some of the most popular neighborhoods in Las Vegas include Summerlin, Downtown Las Vegas, The Lakes, Sun City Summerlin, Desert Shores, and Tule Springs.
Long Distance Moving Tips
Now that you know more about life in Nevada, it is likely that you’ll have an easier time making your final decision about moving to Nevada. With that being said, Poseidon Moving and Storage has a couple of long distance moving tips that you can use to make your cross country move easy.
The first tip we have to offer as you begin planning for your move to Nevada is to receive multiple moving estimates before hiring a moving company. Finding the right moving company for the best price is essential when moving long distance. Part of this process involves receiving multiple estimates from at least three different moving companies in order to ensure that you are receiving the best price. We highly recommend receiving estimates as early as possible but it is important to receive estimates at least four weeks before your move at minimum.
We also recommend prioritizing the items that you need to keep with you when it comes time to actually pack for your move to Nevada. When it comes to a long distance move, we recommend packing an open-first box that includes items that you will need during your first few weeks in your new home. This box can be packed with items such as bedding, towels, pots and pans, and dishes. Having this box on hand will ensure that you have everything you need immediately upon arriving at your new home in Nevada, alleviating stress and allowing you to take your time unpacking the rest of your household belongings.
