The spectacular Strip is synonymous with the city of Las Vegas, a world unto itself where anything is possible. The success of a single casino in 1941 laid the seeds for what would eventually become the extraordinary and unparalleled Las Vegas Strip, a cultural phenomenon that attracted legendary musicians, top-notch hoteliers and a whole host of colorful characters, their stories interwoven into the very fabric of the city. This stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard is bejeweled with luxury hotels the likes of which are found nowhere else, entertainment venues that host some of the world's top acts, and attractions that run the gamut from the dancing fountains of the Bellagio to the dazzling lights of the Fremont Street Experience. Here, it's possible to enjoy a gondola ride down Venetian canals, tour the amazonian forests and admire the Eiffel Tower in a single day; a replica of some of the world's wonders packed into a single street. The Strip's 30 odd casinos are a whirlwind of flashing lights where time holds no sway and fortunes are won with the roll of a dice or the spin of a wheel, while world-renown restaurants, shopping centers, nightclubs and arenas vie for attention too. So grand is the spectacle, that the Strip is clearly visible from the sky, its glimmering facades, brilliant lights and distinctive architecture unmistakable as anything else.

Today, it is home to over 150 shops and restaurants. The center is located one mile east of the famous Las Vegas Strip.

Somewhere in the nebulous area that's not quite Las Vegas, not quite Henderson and not quite Green Valley...is, in fact, Green Valley. This is where the people of Las Vegas live. Here, independent children's secondhand stores and neighborhood florists are nearly overshadowed by giants such as Burlington Coat Factory or Safeway. Somewhere in these suburbs, a sense of community flourishes that is unlike anything in Las Vegas or equally large city centers. They stand and chat at the cash register for hours with their friends. They don't seem to have any desire to return to the hectic, air-conditioned wonderland that is Central Las Vegas. This is the beauty of District at Green Valley Ranch.
