Boulder City, Nevada... close, but far away from crowds
Boulder City, Nevada... the small town for the mobile retired couple.
As you drive north to Las Vegas across the new arched bridge over the Colorado River, you will be driving past the northeast edge of Boulder City. Just the history of HOW this town became a town and the unusual ownership of vacant property is a story in itself.
Electricity comes directly from Boulder/Hoover Dam. Water comes directly from Lake Meade and the Colorado River. The wind... well California provides an ample supply each and every day.
The homes built in the last 25 to 30 years seem to have the recreational vehicle or boat or both in mind. There are many homes with the large RV garage attached or unattached to their home for a trailer or RV bus. Just finding one for sale that compliments your taste in interior construction takes time.
Some homes have the RV "port" or... "side access nation" with a roof. With annual precipitation at 4 inches, but sunshine 95% of the time... it is an area to check out. We did... and built new, since we are not into the marble floors and Roman pillar interiors of some older homes presently being sold for very reasonable prices.
Las Vegas in just a "glow" over the mountain range to my East. Once the Interstate bypasses Boulder City in the near future... it will be a sleepy destination for those who know where to stay outside Las Vegas.
This is part of the Mohave Desert. You would not know it when during the Winter months, but will in July. A great compromise from the northern latitudes. We look forward for any rain... and if there is anything three inches deep on OUR driveway... it is the newspaper.
