Summerlin is a master planned community first thought up by Howard Hughes.

Only ten miles distant, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area is the area’s closest and best known landmark. Hiking, climbing, bike riding, and horse riding are only minutes away. Much closer is the Red Rock Casino Complex, with plenty of gaming, an 18 screen movie theatre, and a 66 lane bowling alley. Red Rock is where locals go for entertainment.
The Las Vegas Valley is currently experiencing an “excessive heat warning” as defined by the National Weather Service. We’ll hit 110 degrees today. It’s either raining when you move or it’s too hot. Take your pick.
