    Hi All.. I am currently a member of the Austin,Texas FanForce and I am considering a relocation to VEGAS. I have been to Vegas many times as like most people a TOURIST. However, I have been enjoying a life of Retail Sales (not really) over the last 2 years at Circuit City. Well, with the economy and lack of sales, I along with 3,900 Sales Reps were laid off. So, I figure now is as good a time as any to make a Huge change and maybe move to Vegas. I was curious on how LIVING in(not visiting) Vegas is. I have plans to drive to Vegas and spend about 2-3 weeks out there in March. In hopes of finding a job and place to live. Any suggestions of an AFFORDABLE place to stay while I am looking would be greatly appreciated and/or any places to look at or avoid. I was also curious on what the cost of living was like. Sorry to be so long winded, but this would be a BIG lifestyle change for me and would like some help doing it. Thanks for any and all advice.

    I would advise you also post this in the henderson boards cause the lv/henderson boards are mostly just one big group with 2 seperate forums and we post in the henderson one most of the time :)

    I cant give you to much advice since i still live at home but when i moved here my parents where able to find a job at a casino fairly easy.

    As far as living in Las Vegas, it goes like this: You can never be bored, because there's always something to do 24 hours a day. The weather is never too bad, and if it's rainy or windy, you can rest assured that it'll clear up in 4 days... tops!


    Prices are moderate. Expect to pay at least $850 a month for a 2 bedroom apartment.


    As for a place to stay while you look, there are hundeds of hotels and motels in town, though I would stay away from any that are close to Las Vegas Blvd. or Fremont St. I hope you decide to relocate here :)

    I guess I will cut and paste this post to Henderson as well. I can use as much advice and help as possible. Thanks.

    As far as the 24/7 atmosphere.... I cant wait for that. I just want it to be as stable a move as possible. Once I do get settled in....I have no doubt about the amount of fun to be had. I just excited to be out of Texas...and Texas weather. Not to mention the idea of being so close to all the other states I can visit. You can drive 3-5 hours from Austin and still be in Texas.

    I was also curious if anyone knew of a place that has 24/7 Internet access and Email/Microsoft Office available to the general public. I guessing finding a job wont be to difficult, but I also know sending your resume via email is usually recommended, not to mention the daily updates of job postings. Since I dont own a laptop..this is a major concern of mine.
