One of the best options for running in Las Vegas not far from the Strip is to head to The Lakes neighborhood. This 2-square-mile master planned community located five miles west of The Strip has many quiet streets around man-made lakes, featuring some of Las Vegas’ most spectacular homes. We haven’t planned a specific route, but you can run several miles in this neighborhood. It’s 4 miles east-west from S Rainbow Blvd. west to near the Strip to S Hualapai Way, and 1 miles between W Desert Inn Rd. and W Sahara Ave. There are some busier, not very attractive streets, so best to stick to the quiet side streets and the streets adjacent to the lakes.
