Welcome to Summerlin

Luxury living is at its finest in this posh Nevada enclave
Situated a mere 20 minutes away from the ever-electrifying heart of Las Vegas, Summerlin epitomizes the prevailing dream of a desert paradise. Gorgeous, extravagant estates line its residential streets, while its downtown district thrums with world-class restaurants, over 125 first-rate retailers, and endless opportunities for fun and entertainment. Meanwhile, the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area serves as the stunning and exquisite backdrop to it all. 
The impeccable and ultra-high-end master-planned community has a fascinating history. It belonged to film director, famous recluse, and aviator extraordinaire Howard Hughes, who was once the largest landowner in The Silver State. Its present is just as enthralling. Summerlin is home to more than 250 parks, a slew of pristine golf courses, and more than 24 high-ranking private and public schools. With its perennially balmy weather and abundant elegance, it’s no wonder Summerlin is deemed one of the most desirable places to call home in Nevada.

The Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar attracts Summerlin residents in spades with its irresistible selection of beers, wines, seltzers, and cocktails.

True Food Kitchen is also beloved. The venue’s bright and airy interior serves as the optimal setting for expertly-crafted vegan and vegetarian fare, such as truffle honey squash flatbread with lemon-almond ricotta, edamame dumplings, and vegan flourless chocolate cake with caramel and cacao nibs.
