Great Walkable Neighborhoods in Las Vegas

Great Walkable Neighborhoods in Las VegasThere is so much more to Las Vegas than just being home of the strip. There are many cool areas outside of the strip that offer shopping, dining, entertainment, arts, etc. If you are looking for a home and wondering if there are any walkable neighborhoods, you will be glad to find out there are several. And no it does not mean you are only in a walkable distance of casinos. Check out these cool walkable neighborhoods in Las Vegas.

These are the 5 Las Vegas neighborhoods with the highest Walk Score in Order of Walkability

Arts District

The Arts District of Las Vegas has the highest walk score. Arts District also goes by the name 18b. It is an 18-block neighborhood home to the largest collection of art galleries in the city. It is bounded by Hoover Avenue, 4th Street/Las Vegas Boulevard, Colorado Avenue, and Commerce Street. In addition to the arts scene is a charming collection of funky boutique shops, antique stores, hidden gem bars, and fun local cafes. Antique Alley is a great place to wander through shops and find something cool for your walkable home.

Beverly Green

Not far behind Arts District in walk scores is Beverly Green. A trip to Beverly Green makes you feel like you have stepped back in time to mid-century cool. Las Vegas was booming in the 1950s and 1960s and because of this, a residential community was a necessity. Homes were built northeast of the strip and housed the city's most prominent residents. The homes here have been well preserved and tell the story of when they were built. It is an official historic district as of 2016. 

Hillside Heights

Hillside Heights is a great mix of both worlds. It is quiet and peaceful but not so peaceful that there is nothing to do in the neighborhood. People who move in love the charm and mix of home styles. There are both modern and historic homes here within a walkable distance of great stores and restaurants. 

John S. Park

Just half a mile from the world-famous strip, this neighborhood is surprisingly on the lower end of our list. It ranks at number four for most-walkable neighborhoods. The neighborhood is known for its charm and residents that stave off the encroachment of overdevelopment. John S. Park is developed around an English Garden City planning model. This is the method of focus on park-like settings with tree-lined streets and more of a secluded in nature setting. Though it is not overdeveloped there are still great businesses here and incredibly easy access to mass transit.

Francisco Park

In the early days of the Las Vegas development, the major roadways of Vegas were named after large cities around the country. The neighborhood is named after San Francisco Street which it was centered on. The name stuck for the neighborhood even though street names have since changed. Francisco Park is home to great single-family homes built in the 1950s and is very close to the businesses along Sahara Avenue and S Maryland Parkway.
