What Bert Has To Say About Carson City Metro Area


Carson City is a small desert-mountain city located just east of the main Sierra Nevada rise and Lake Tahoe. The booming city of Reno lies 30 miles to the north across a low mountain pass. There are attractive residential areas in the mountains and valleys 15 miles further south into the Carson Valley towards the small agricultural centers of Minden and Gardnerville, but they are becoming expensive as more Californians move in.
