Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- Henderson is getting some national attention after being included on a list of America's 19 Mega Suburbs.

According to SML Moving Company, all of the mega suburbs are in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, Texas and Virginia.

That puts Henderson in the ranks of cities like Gilbert, Arizona and Irvine, California.

"I think what makes Henderson unique is that we enjoy all of the outstanding amenities you might expect in the second-largest city in Nevada, yet we still enjoy the small-town atmosphere and values that are part of our heritage and who we are," said Mayor Andy Hafen.

Factors for consideration included public safety and low crime rates, population growth and location.
