The town of Searchlight first thrived under the economic support of the southwestern gold rush, though today apartment residents stay in the city for its bucolic charm and underrated serenity.
Searchlight is located south of Las Vegas
down Interstate 95, and may be the perfect place for city dwellers who want to escape from the bright lights of the city and get back in touch with their natural roots. There are few better places in Nevada to enjoy the Southwest's stark beauty, and apartment residents in Searchlight enjoy breathtaking views, a varied landscape flush with wildflowers, cacti and hot springs, and abundant wildlife running the gamut from big-horned sheep to desert tortoises to roadrunners. All this thriving natural allure is encapsulated by wide-open plains, rugged mountains and stately desert canyons.
Given all that Searchlight has to offer, it comes as no surprise that apartment residents in the community yearn for opportunities to get in touch with nature. To that end, there's no shortage of options, as Searchlight is considered the gateway to the majestic Lake Mohave. This reservoir is abound with rainbow trout, largemouth and striped bass and sunfish, giving residents enough game to wile away an entire afternoon out on the lake. The body of water is also popular among boaters and swimmers.
Nearby Cottonwood Cove also offers apartment residents a great chance to get in touch with Searchlight's ranching roots, offering horseback riding, river rafting and camping. Though anyone planning to hit the great outdoors is first suggested to make a stop at Jack's Trading Post, where they can stock up on supplies and unique greeting cards, which they can send to their faraway friends who likely wish they were there.
