Las Vegas House Hunting Trip
March 26-30, 2003

Some time ago, our health insurance provider pulled out of Florida.  Our new health insurance cost quite a bit more money, while at the same time offering substantially less coverage than the old policy.  Unfortunately, there was no better health insurance available in this part of Florida for Federal retirees.  Between this and the fact that Bill has yet to get used to the terribly humid Florida summers (15 seconds outdoors and he's sweating like a horse), we decided to consider alternative places to live.  Since the local newspaper had reported that the majority of people leaving the area were moving to Las Vegas, we studied everything we could find on the Internet about living in this city.  All things considered, Las Vegas sounded like a good place to live, so we decided to go there and take a closer look.

Our departure was Wednesday, the 26th of March, 2003.  Since our flight out was delayed a total of 10 hours because of mechanical problems and missed connections, we didn't get to our hotel until late at night, so unfortunately we missed our first day of sightseeing.  Thursday and Friday were spent looking at houses in various Las Vegas neighborhoods, and Saturday we took a short driving tour north to Mt. Charleston (the highest mountain in Nevada), followed by a walking tour of the Las Vegas Strip.

Note the following, which is in no particular order:

A total of 113 photographs were taken, 75 of which have been posted on these web pages.  The pictures below are of the 17 houses we toured, and near the bottom of this page is a link to the photographs taken in and around the Las Vegas Strip Saturday . . . enjoy!
