The area around the Raiders stadium may not be the best or easiest place to build a big project or open a retail business.

Life in Las Vegas agrees with rock star climber Alex Honnold, who became the first person to free solo Yosemite’s El Capitan in 2017. “The beauty of Vegas is that I can take showers and cook home meals and be close to my climbing — it’s the best of both worlds.”
The Las Vegas Valley has been infatuated with the Vegas Golden Knights since the team established itself as the area’s first professional franchise in October 2017. But in 2018 the Golden Knights captured hearts with a remarkable run to the Stanley Cup Final, and continuous community outreach that endeared the players and coaches to adoring fans.
