Located on the far west side of the Las Vegas Valley, Sunmerlin is largely a residential neighborhood. Shops, restaurants, and recreational opportunities also attract visitors, especially those looking to get away from the Strip. Red Rock National Recreation Area attracts outdoor enthusiasts, photographers, and nature lovers. Serious bicyclists are a common sight throughout the area, and Summerlin's golf courses host major tournaments.
Summerlin's residential feeling will give you a totally different look at Las Vegas. A very small percentage of Vegas visitors ever leave the Strip, so you'll definitely be seeing a side of the city that only residents usually experience.).
