In the mid-1980s, on the western fringe of Las Vegas, a planned community was developed to include a newly created man-made lake now known as Lake Sahara. The original development encompassed two square miles with Lake Sahara, ponds, and tributaries covering nearly 30 acres. Today, residents of The Lakes enjoy a wide selection of Las Vegas residences ranging from starter homes to multimillion-dollar estates.
As the boundary of the Las Vegas Valley extends, The Lakes homes have become very popular for their convenient location and access to major roadways and The Strip.
For many, life around The Lakes, Las Vegas surrounds water sports and nature. As the largest body of water on the west side of Las Vegas, Lake Sahara attracts migratory birds that stop to rest and feed before continuing their cross-country journeys. Geese, swans, herons, ducks, seagulls, pelicans, and some eccentric “coots,” or mud hens, make The Lakes their temporary home each year.

The thirty-acre private Lake Sahara surrounds a secluded community that gives you the sense of being on vacation at a tropical resort. You can have your own lake right in your backyard by just walking out to it from your back door, and set off to enjoy fishing or boating with others like yourself who live here as well!
The Lake Town Center allows you to enjoy a breakfast or dinner cruise with the convenience of onsite shopping, dining, and even boat maintenance. You can also buy groceries, get your hair styled and pick up laundry all by boat!
The Lakes has a very convenient location in the heart of the city, so it’s near many shops and stores central to The Strip. It also has its own shopping plaza located at the north end of Lake Sahara known as “Lake Town Center Plaza.” This private plaza is home to wonderful restaurants, mini-markets, dry cleaner facilities, and other retail businesses like a performing arts center.
The Lakes is a Vegas neighborhood that gives off the resort vibe with luxury lakefront homes and single-family houses, as well as seclusion from The Strip. It’s also beneficial for its amenities such as various things to do!
