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.

Henderson offers the best of both worlds

While Henderson is just 15 minutes from the fabulous Las Vegas strip and all that it has to offer, the two cities can be worlds apart… if you want them to be. Throughout its phenomenal growth during the past two decades and its emergence as a hub for business in the Southwest, Henderson has been able to maintain its hometown feel.

Despite the massive influx of newcomers, recent surveys have found that most residents believe the city’s high quality of life has been maintained or even bettered due to the growth.

But people aren’t just attracted to Henderson to play and live, either. Many of them have work on their mind.

“We’ve gone from working hard to tout Henderson to now seeing everyone else tout Henderson,” said Scott Muelrath, chief executive officer of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. “That’s when you know the community has done something right.”
