Take a video Tour of Boulder City, NV, which is part of the Greater Las Vegas Real Estate market. It's just outside the southeastern Las Vegas Valley next to Henderson. As a small town in population, of just over 16,000, it is known to most for visiting Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, traveling to Arizona, or as a starting point for air tours to the Grand Canyon.
Most of the route taken would only have you skim by the city. There were often traffic tie-ups, especially on the weekends, from truck and traveler traffic. With the new Interstate 11, that includes a bypass and a new connection to the Boulder City Parkway, that traffic has eased considerably. But the real question is... should you pass it by?
Boulder City was created as a first of it's kind company town as it was designed by the federal government. With that in mind, they wanted it to be a model town. While the original homes here were only meant to be temporary, to the surprise of the officials, many wanted to stay. As it evolved over the years there are now many unique homes and neighborhoods, with some offering amazing mountain or Lake Mead views.
Beyond what the city offers for parks and recreation, and it's quaint historic downtown, there's also much more to be found in and around the area. There are a wide variety of outdoor activities for it's residents, Las Vegas locals, and visitors, alike. Yet it's often surprising that there are many who don't realize what is hidden away just on the other side of Railroad Pass.
Boulder City is a sharp contrast to nearby Las Vegas, often referred to as the 'Mayberry' of southern Nevada. It's steeped in it's history and has a lot of land, and you may be surprised at the reason it's growth pales in comparison to the Las Vegas Valley. Although for 2018, the largest new home development in 30 years is underway.
So while it's difficult to show all that Boulder City has to offer, I've condensed as much as possible in this video tour. There's still a lot to see, so hop in and find out more about this city next door to the Las Vegas Valley.
