Henderson: It Ain't Hendertucky No More!

Ahhh Henderson, NV.  When I moved here (to the Las Vegas area) back in 1997, Henderson was nicknamed “Hendertucky”.  I honestly don’t know why but maybe it had to do with it’s rural nature and that it was a “little far” from the city center.

I remember driving through Henderson back during my first visit to Las Vegas in 1990 (for my 21st birthday go figure!) to go see the Hoover Dam.  It was pretty rural & “out in the sticks” then and I have nothing against rural folk (I am from Nebraska doncha know?)  So I imagine that’s where the term “Hendertucky” was derived.

Things changed from 1991 to 1997 as the sprawl continued east and suburbia moved into Henderson.  The 215 freeway was built and Henderson was no longer isolated from what is known as the world famous “Las Vegas Strip” – or McCarran Airport – or UNLV.  Now Henderson has some of the best proximity to those very popular entertainment and employment centers.

Let me share some of my favorite Henderson master planned communities with you:

Green Valley Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Henderson

Green Valley is very popular and I would say it is the only real rival toSummerlin.  Many community amenities and close to what everyone wants to be close to:  Local Gaming, Professional Offices, Restaurants & Retail.

Anthem Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Henderson

Anthem isn’t really close to the 215 freeway, in fact Eastern is a nightmare to get from the freeway to Anthem.  It is extremely aesthetically pleasing and features a little of something for everyone from entry level housing to the age restricted Sun City Anthem to the affluent Anthem Country Club.

The District at Green Valley Ranch Condominium Loft Homes for Sale in Henderson

The District at Green Valley Ranch is a very unique mixed use development anchored by Green Valley Station Casino.  It is a mixture of shops from boutique to “big box” and restaurants from local to chain.  Lofts are nestled above these stores and restaurants where The District becomes a one of a kind:  ”live, work & play” atmosphere.

Lake Las Vegas Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Henderson

Lake Las Vegas is also unique!  It is a one of a kind resort style community.  Lake Las Vegas blends water (lakes), golf and gaming resorts into an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere.  Lake Las Vegas does currently have it’s difficulties but I believe if it was built only a decade earlier it would be a smashing success right now!

As you can see, Henderson has sure come a long way in two decades since I first visited!
