Commuting to Las Vegas
When you are at home on your ranch lot, you enjoy pristine views and quiet serenity. But when you want to PLAY, Las Vegas can’t be beat! It is approximately a 75 minute drive to Las Vegas Area from from the property, thanks to the new Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, which was completed in 2010.
Commuting to Phoenix
The property is located in the corridor proposed for the new Interstate 11 highway (I-11) , which will provide a direct interstate link between Phoenix and Las Vegas. So “getting there” will be even easier than ever.
In Boulder City (just a 50 minute drive), major shopping is available to you. Las Vegas, and Kingman are also within easy reach, yet you still have the feeling of privacy and solitude at your own ranch.
Lake Mead National Recreational Area
The Lake Mead National Recreation Area (NRA) has nine paved access roads, and offers a wealth of things to do and places to go year-round, such as golf, fishing, and water sports. Lake Mead, the largest man-made lake in the U.S. (based on storage capacity) was created by the construction of Hoover Dam, one of the country’s modern engineering wonders. Due to its overall depth, Lake Mead stores more water than any other Colorado River reservoir, including Lake Powell. Both land and boat tours of the dam are conducted daily. The Desert Princess, a 250 passenger paddlewheel boat located at Lake Mead Marina, is available for tours. Lake Mead is only a short 9 mile drive from our property.
Land for the Meadview development was purchased in 1960. Portions of that land were later determined to be inside the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and that land was exchanged for inland parcels. Construction of boat launch ramp is ongoing and launching is good. 4-Wheel Drive Recommended
Grand Canyon West Rim Skywalk
Take a walk on the Skywalk, 4,000 feet above the Grand Canyon.In the old days, the most thrilling view you could get of the Grand Canyon came standing at its edge.

You may find a short excursion to the nearby mining community of Oatman a pleasant change of pace. Oatman takes visitors back to the days of the Old West with staged gunfights in the middle of town. As you walk the quaint streets of the old West you may be surprised by the passing of a friendly wild burro or two. They are a trademark of Oatman and treasured by the local residents.
