Las Vegas – Why Complete Streets
I love nothing more than my family. As a father, husband, coach, etc. I am constantly on the move. I need to find every way I can to spend quality time with my family. Every morning of the week my wife and I walk our kids to school. We live in a neighborhood on the outskirts of Las Vegas and cherish this time to chat with the kids, play tag and sometimes just get the joints and bones moving. The kids have not always appreciated the walks, but we have walked to school for so long they don’t really know any different. As parents we are confident that this short walk is a great way to engage the body and brain for optimal learning, better behavior and overall better connection.
