Hospital side includes the Nellis AFB commissary, hospital, the newly renovated athletic facility, the BX, and all your basic family needs. It is a busy base with many airmen on temporary deployment to and from and the base. The neighboring communities are also home to over 70,000 veterans. There is a newly built VA hospital five miles from Nellis AFB.
Expect to see lizards and geckos everywhere! These little fiends can be seen scurrying across walking paths and racing across the brick walls that line the neighborhood streets. Along with these quick friends are chipmunks and bunny rabbits. Hummingbirds dance from plant to plant and can be found anywhere in town. The koi ponds at the local parks are home to many turtles. You will find lots of geese and other birds there, too.
