Forbes: America’s Prettiest Neighborhoods

3 of 12

The Lakes, Las Vegas, Nevada

A planned community within Sin City, The Lakes was built during the 1980s and 1990s to help handle part of the huge influx of people to Las Vegas as the city continued to expand. Located around a number of man-made – and unexpected – bodies of water within the Nevada desert, just west of the famous Las Vegas Strip, The Lakes features stunningly beautiful homes dotting the water’s perimeter, with many of them having their own boat dock. Originally located on the edge of the Las Vegas Valley, The Lakes has seen the areas around it grow with such speed that it is now located with a large and busy business district.
