Away from the Strip and the I-15 corridor, the extensive western suburbs of Las Vegas
(including the town of Spring Valley
) stretch for ten miles towards the foothills of the Spring Mountains. This area is predominantly residential, containing many upscale estates on the flat, gently sloping land, some based around country clubs and golf courses such as Canyon Gate, Siena, Spanish Trail and Arroyo; the most exclusive are those on the western edge, as they have the best views of the city. Loop 215
runs all around the perimeter, while US 95 and the Summerlin Parkway cross the center; other main roads, with shopping and lodging, include Sahara Avenue, Charleston Blvd, Flamingo Road and Rainbow Blvd.
This part of Las Vegas is very close to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
, one of the most visited natural areas in the state, while the road to another popular location Mount Charleston
branches off US 95 a few miles north.
