One thing noticeable about Las Vegas, is that it has a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. That’s because Las Vegas is full of single people in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting careers in professional occupations. This makes Las Vegas a great place for young, educated career starters looking to find many people like themselves, with good opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.

Las Vegas is a big city, and with that comes lots of benefits. One benefit is that most big cities have public transit, but Las Vegas really shines when it comes to the extensiveness and use of its public transit system. More than most large American cities, Las Vegas citizens use public transit daily to get to and from work. And while there are transportation options, most people in Las Vegas ride the bus. Whereas in some cities one is destined to sit in traffic every morning to get to work and every evening to get home, in Las Vegas a lot leave their cars at home (if they even choose to own one), and hop a ride on the bus.
