Las Vegas’ premier urban and residential community
Summerlin is Las Vegas’ premier urban and residential community nestled against the breathtaking Red Rock National Conservation Area. More specifically, it is a master-planned community in the Las Vegas Valley of Southern Nevada. It lies at the edge of the Spring Mountains and Red Rock Canyon to the west; it is partly within the official city limits of Las Vegas and partly within unincorporated Clark County. This rapidly growing community occupies over 22,500 acres and the community is divided into three associations (North, South, and West), which oversee two dozen commercial and residential villages.
At the time of the 2010 census, Summerlin's population was nearly 100,000, having risen from 59,000 residents in the year 2000. The community has received national acclaim for its amenities. Notably, it was named the "#1 best place to live and play" by National Geographic Adventure in 2007 and one of the "Best Places to Live in America" by Money magazine in 2014.
Where did Summerlin get its name? It was named after Jean Amelia Summerlin, Howard Hughes’ grandmother. The Howard Hughes Corporation maintains ownership of the master-planned community, along with Downtown Summerlin (the community's premier shopping, dining, and entertainment district) and the Las Vegas Ballpark.
Summerlin has a hot desert climate typical of the Mojave Desert in where it’s located. However, due to its relatively higher elevation, Summerlin is often a few degrees cooler than Downtown Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Strip and may receive slightly more precipitation. In comparison, the Las Vegas Strip is approximately 2,000 feet above sea level and Henderson is generally between 1,500 and 2,000 feet above sea level. Even Henderson’s higher elevations in the McDonald Highland and Anthem neighborhoods average 2,400 and 2,800 feet above sea level, respectively. That means it’s cooler in Summerlin year-round, a benefit not lost on Summerlin residents who appreciate the community’s cooler summer temperatures – both day and night. Clear skies and sunshine are abundant year-around, with 310 days of sunshine per year and low humidity in every season.
