Why Henderson is the Las Vegas Valley Address for Success

Nevada's tax environment (including corporate or personal income tax) makes it continually one of the most-business friendly states in the nation.

Henderson is becoming a hub for business in the Southwest, conveniently located between five major markets (Los Angeles, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, San Diego and San Francisco).

Known for its master-planned communities and high-quality of living, Henderson leads Nevada cities in income per capita and education levels of its residents. It was also named one of America's Safest Cities by Money magazine. Henderson is just 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip and 10 minutes from McCarran International Airport, the nation’s seventh busiest airport.

Henderson has been at the front of Nevada's growth spurt, growing from just 60,000 to more than 270,000 today. By the end of the year 2025, nearly 400,000 residents are expected to call Henderson home. Henderson's population would qualify it as the 14th largest city in the state of California, larger than such cities as Irvine, Glendale and San Bernardino.


It’s all part of Henderson’s master-plan

With award winning master-planned communities and numerous housing options, Henderson provides an outstanding quality of life that has become synonymous with the city. Henderson has more than 25 master-planned communities including: Anthem, Green Valley Ranch, Lake Las Vegas Resort, MacDonald Highlands and Seven Hills.
