Las Vegas West Community Information

Canyon Gate

Located about eight miles west of the famed Las Vegas Strip, this family friendly community of over 500 homes is situated on 320 acres of beautifully landscaped waterfalls, lagoons and lush hybrid Bermuda fairways. A scenic drive through the spectacular foothills of the Spring Mountain Range and Red Rock is only minutes away. Community amenities include the Canyon Gate Country Club, greenbelts, tennis courts, a fitness center and a championship 18-hole golf course. A guardhouse at the entrance of Canyon Gate is manned 24 hours a day.

Peccole Ranch

Another outstanding community, Peccole Ranch, is located just east of Summerlin, Nevada, adjacent to the Queensridge housing development. Peccole Ranch is comprised of 12 neighborhoods, five of which are gated. Like Canyon Gate, Peccole Ranch offers exciting amenities for an active lifestyle, such as tennis courts, volleyball, lush parks and safe paths for hiking and biking. The lovely Red Rock Mountains form a dramatic backdrop to the Peccole Ranch community.

Local Attractions

The Clark County Museum celebrates the history of southern Nevada. From prehistoric times to the Age of Entertainment, exhibits, dioramas and presentations cover nearly 10,000 years. A full-sized pueblo, Native American artifacts and a walk-in mine filled with treasures are a few of the displays that make the Clark County Museum one of a kind. A most astounding exhibit of historic homes and businesses from the early 20th century can be toured on Heritage Street. The Boulder City train depot, along with historic rail cars, is also on display. A trail leads through the museum’s “desert” to a recreated ghost town.

Not just a gambling mecca, Las Vegas is rich in history which can be viewed at the Nevada State Museum and Historical Society, and the Las Vegas Museum of Natural History: The Zoological-Botanical Park features a 4-acre zoo of desert plants and animals. Cultural activities include visits to the many art galleries and museums or a night at the Nevada Symphony, Nevada Dance Theatre, Winchester Center Theatre or the Clark County Amphitheater. Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada's oldest and largest state park, is located 55 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Hidden canyons, unique rock formations, petroglyphs and the remains of ancient Indian civilizations can be found throughout the Park.
