I have been a Realtor here for over 27 years and the two most requested areas are either Green Valley Ranch and Anthem in Henderson or Summerlin on the west side of Vegas. Both have loads of parks, lots of good shopping, restaurants, schools, etc. Very family friendly and safe. It really just depends on which one "feels" best to you and you can't go wrong either way. My best friend lives in Summerlin and I live in Anthem. :) We have a running argument about which area is better.
