About North Las Vegas

North Las Vegas is a city in its own right, but the sprawl of Southern Nevada has swallowed up this working-class community, erasing any obvious division between Las Vegas and North Las Vegas. Located close to Nellis Air Force Base, North Las Vegas is home to many military families. Race fans regularly descend on NLV to visit the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which hosts NASCAR as well as other racing events.
