Las Vegas may be one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, but as the landscape of the Valley continues to evolve with new growth and development, one thing remains the same: Southern Highlands is the best master-planned community in Las Vegas! For the second consecutive year, the popular enclave has taken home the coveted honor in the Best Of Las Vegas contest, an annual poll conducted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal that invites locals to vote for standouts in a variety of categories.

What makes Southern Highlands so great?

It could be the picture-perfect setting against the foothills of the Spring Mountains, with quiet, tree-lined streets and lush, green parks that take you away from it all…even though the dazzling lights of the Strip are just a short drive away.

Maybe it’s the sense of small-town Americana the community fosters, with fun activities and neighborhood events planned throughout the year by the Southern Highlands Community Association. The annual Memorial Day Celebration in Stonewater Park features food, games and a professional firework display, while the Fall Festival welcomes the cooler weather with kids’ activities and a pumpkin patch. The annual Winter Festival and Tree Lighting has become a holiday tradition, as friends and neighbors gather in the spirit of the season with cocoa, caroling and even a visit from Santa.

Or perhaps what continues to give Southern Highlands the leading edge in a city full of master-planned communities is the caliber of its homes, designed by the nation’s top homebuilders to fulfill the wish list of buyers at every life stage—with entry level, move up and luxury residences.

With award-winning public and private schools, one-of-a-kind dining and shopping options, and a host of everyday amenities, Southern Highlands offers everything a family could want in a place to call home.
