What Bert Has To Say About Reno Metro Area

The self-described “Biggest Little City in the World” is growing up to be a not-so-little city, combining its traditional heritage as a transportation, mining, and gambling center with distinct features of a California satellite. Rapid growth has brought a more diverse amenity base and family-friendly environment that is quite desirable. A favorable tax climate and strategic location as a distribution point to northern California has generated commercial and industrial development.
