Nestled above the sparkling city lights, in the upper west side of the Las Vegas Valley, you’ll find a master planned community unlike any other in this part of the country. What separates Providence from other Las Vegas master plans is its core sensibilities — and the developer’s vision of creating a place that is truly inspired by tradition. Tree-lined boulevards connect neighborhoods. Flowing parks offer residents endless opportunity for recreation. And a year-round calendar of planned community events brings neighbors together to enjoy family activities, while at the same time nurturing a tight-knit community.

Centennial Hills is the newest area in Las Vegas. This area is located about 17 miles from Nellis AFB and about 30 minutes from Creech AFB. The location is central to both bases and the bus stop for Creech is just between the I-95 & 215. Centennial Hills is home to the new Centennial Hills Hospital. New shopping & restaurants are popping up every day. They have just announced the Community College will build another site off Durango & Elkhorn and the new Mall of Las Vegas is scheduled to be built behind the hospital.

Livin in Providence & Centennial Hills
Located northwest of the City of Las Vegas are Providence and Centennial Hills. These communities sit right next to each other, each with their own charm and appeal. Let me highlight what these are.
This master-planned community showcases the wild beauty of the desert, with a gorgeous assortment of greenery. Desert blooms come to life here, alongside neatly trimmed trees and shrubs. Garden-style pathways and promenades are peppered throughout the area, making it ideal for walking outdoors and taking life at a more leisurely pace. The landscapes here are some of the most beautiful ones I’ve seen in Las Vegas. A picture-perfect scenery sitting comfortably close to Centennial Hills, Providence remains one of the most popular locations for house-hunters in the area. At night, the twinkling views of the Las Vegas Strip below provides an unbeatable, breathtaking sight. It’s one of my most favorite nightscapes.
Accessible via the I-95 and the I-215 freeways, Hualapai Way is the main passage cutting through the neighborhood. The 215 Beltway is also very convenient. Providence is a short twenty-minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip, and only ten minutes away from Summerlin. Its zip code is 89166.
Providence is one of the fastest growing communities in Las Vegas, and one that finds itself consistently on the top ten master-planned communities in the nation. There are plenty of houses for sale in Providence, and buyers who are looking for beautiful homes with neatly-trimmed gardens just may find the perfect one for them right here. The home prices range from $150,000 to $2.4M while rent can range from $1.73K to $2.19M.
Providence is conveniently located to both Creech and Nellis Air Force Bases. Residents love it here because of its proximity to both bases, as well as the family-oriented vibe of the community. It’s one that is very dog-friendly, and great for walking. A lot of residents here love how peaceful and quiet it is, and feel safe walking the streets after dark. Garden landscaping, hosting backyard barbecues for the family, biking and trails are just some of the most popular activities in this homey, relaxed and prairie-like community.
For those who enjoy a good hike, Mount Charleston is close by. It’s accessible by traveling two exits north along the I-95 freeway.
Right next to Providence is Centennial Hills. Here, houses for sale range from an affordable $120,000 to $1.99M for larger homes. The average rent here ranges from $995 to $2.6K.
While the cost of living here is just slightly higher than the city average, residents love living here because Centennial Hills is one the safest neighborhoods in Las Vegas. The crime rate is incredibly low, and residents describe it as a very friendly, homey area where yards are well-kept and streets are well-lit. It’s a great community in which to raise a family, where parents feel safe about their children playing outdoors. The schools here are also highly-rated by parents, with Ernest J. May Elementary School and the James Bilbray Elementary School leading in the area.
Centennial Hills Locals enjoy its laid-back and chill vibe, and like Providence, Centennial Hills is also very much dog-friendly as well. Public parks ideal for families are close by and well within reach. Locals enjoy the plentiful and convenient amenities found in Centennial Hills. The community has a large library, a local YMCA, a lot of fitness studios and gyms, and a large 900,000 square foot shopping center. Plus, there are a good number of grocery stores, restaurants and cafes in the area. Enjoy going out at night but would like something more casual than what’s found on the main Strip? Centennial Hills has its own brand of nightspots, too.
Centennial Hills has close access to both the I-95 and the I-215 freeways, as it’s just across Providence. To the east of Centennial Hills is Sheep Mountain, while to the north is Tule Springs.
Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate that Centennial Hills is home to a few lush and refreshing springs, the trails of the Floyd Lamb State Park, and the Gil Crease Orchard. It’s also only ten miles away from the gorgeous Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.
