20 years ago the population of Henderson, Nevada was less than 15,000, and merely just a "jerkwater" stop for travelers wanting a glimpse of Lake Mead or Hoover Dam, or taking the shortcut to Kingman, Arizona with no stoplights. Fast forward, and the metro area is pushing 260,000 with more casinos and hotels and easy access via the 215 freeway or the mostly retired Boulder Highway. Henderson is mostly a young person’s city these days with a median age of under 40. The old folks have moved their mobile homes just up the road to Boulder City where no gambling is allowed. In Henderson, Nevada, the females still outnumber males - 50 to 49, and apartment rentals still remain moderate. Two and three bedroom apartments are available for less than $1,200 per month. However, if you want cheaper rentals, you'll find them near Basic High School. There are plenty of Henderson apartment reviews available on DoNotRent.com.
