Get away from it all in this southern Nevada desert oasis, where the commotions and crowds of Vegas are noticeably absent and there's a ban on gambling -- rare for a state that depends on it. Instead, you'll find locals playing a round of golf at one of the city's impeccable courses or tearing up the trails at Bootleg Canyon, a nationally recognized mountain bike park.
Just minutes away: the Hoover Dam and man-made Lake Mead, explorable by houseboat. Indeed, Boulder City was originally built to house dam construction workers in the 1930s. Now, homes sit on palm tree-lined streets that stare up at blue skies and mountain ranges. The price point? Around $165,000.Subscribe to Money Magazine
