West Sahara is one of the first master-planned communities in Las Vegas. Its borders stretch from Durango to Fort Apache, and from West Sahara Avenue to West Desert Inn Road. The neighborhood’s West Sahara Community Association maintains all common areas in West Sahara. It also helps preserve and further develop the community.
The residential areas in West Sahara feature many meandering sidewalks for pedestrians and more than 1,500 trees carefully lined up in beautiful belt areas. A number of walking trail parks are also available for brisk walking, jogging, and using exercise equipment. There is a nearby man-made lake to provide residents with a refreshing place to sit back, relax, or have a picnic.
West Sahara houses non-Strip Las Vegas hotels and lodges like the Palace Station Hotel and Casino, Courtyard Hotel Rooms, and La Quinta Inns and Suites. These hotels provide more localized options for those seeking refuge outside the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip, yet are only about 10 miles away from this tourist stretch.
