Default Moving to Vegas?

Hey guys, so heres the deal, your help is greatly appreciated:

- myself and 3 buddies from Canada, 21 and 22 years old looking to move to vegas next year for 3 months to a year depending on how we like it. (going to find jobs down there....hopefully )

- not really for poker, more of a done school, move to a new place kinda thing. We've been once and loved it.

- I'm looking online for rental houses but having trouble finding good websites. What do you guys use for rental properties? Cragslist? Something else? Every website I search on google is garbage because its all sponsored results at the top trying to sell me stuff.

- Looking for a 4 bedroom house, no more than 10 minutes from strip (maybe 15 if its a great house and good deal). Looking for about $1500-2500/month for the house. Something with a drive way and pool would be wicked, but you can't win them all.

- Do you know what the neighbourhood surrounding the strip is called? The rental housing sites I've used use terms to describe different parts of the city but I don't know enough about Las Vegas. (ex. Manhatten, Brooklyn, Queens, etc for New York). A lot of places don't say how far from the strip they are and we don't want to be 30 minutes away, we want to be nice and close to everything.

Anyway, basically looking for someone to point me in the right direction on where to look. We're going in September for a week and we're gonna spend a day checking some places out to see what kind of quality we can get for what money, etc. Anything you can give me is appreciated!! Thanks guys!!

EDIT: I guess I'm looking for something in this general area. Ignore the A,B,C, its just PH and the University there. Just used them as landmarks. Anything located on this section of the map would be great.

Vegas is a great place to move right now. The economy is booming and jobs aplenty. North Las Vegas is a quiet commuter community, well maintained and little crime. I suggest living there. It's worth the extra drive imo.

Also, if you plan to stay past six months, make sure you don't tell anyone (like INS or Foreign Affairs) - they'd just be jealous.

a friend of mine lives there and he said it kind of sucks if youre looking for a relationship because obv most girls you meet at the casinos are tourists.
then again, i dont think he gives a shit thats why hes avoiding the shitty places where the locals go.
just thought you should know.
vegas is obv not like other cities. to be honest, unless you're balla i dont see the appeal

Ya fair enough. The good thing is they're mostly vacation homes so you can rent them monthly. if it doesn't work out after 2 months we can always head back home.

LOL Kc's correction reminds me of a moot court I was presiding over once. One student was discussing an Ontario case that ruled laws banning activities associated with prostitution was discriminatory based on sex.

It was a 'differential impact' argument, and so she meant to say "most prostitutes are women" (so the laws would have a bigger impact on women than men) but accidentally said "most women are prostitutes". Bit of a difference there.
