Just a mini LA without all the jobs now. - 7/10/2019
Lived here my whole life too expensive to live here now might as well go homeless w everyone else. Homeless and drug addicts are everywhere. Very dirty I wish schools would take their kids and pick up trash to teach the new generations to not throw trash. The roads are so full now than it used to be with cars EVERYWHERE. It’s like I’m in California or something just without all the jobs it’s hard to get jobs other then fast food chain Read More

Friendly, Beautiful Little City - 10/22/2018
I've lived in Reno for the last 7 years and am in love with this little city. The people here are friendly without being intrusive. There are great shopping and dining options, with tons of local businesses. People are community minded, and as a single female, I feel safe and cared about in this community. I've had great job opportunity, and you can't beat the beautiful scenery and sunsets here. I'm proud to call Reno Read More

The Next Silicon Valley. Perfect Place to Move. - 3/2/2018
I remember myself moving to SF back in 2006. Reno has the same feeling today. It is slowly but surely getting crowded with people from startups and bigtech firms (Google, Amazon, Tesla etc)

People are great. Downtown is nice and safe. There is night life. Climate is perfect. Surroundings of Truckee River is somehow similar to the SF Pier.

And since it's close to the SF, it's an easy move. I expect all SF startups to escape here off of unbearable costs and business-friendly attitude of Nevada.

Compared to Las Vegas, Reno feels more like a place to actually live and has a great climate.

Compared to Austin, again the climate is an important factor to choose Reno, plus it's an easier to move (you can complete your move in a single day)

So it's a no-brainer. If you're in tech, come here. There are a lot of co-working communities forming.

PS: University of Nevada is great Read More

quality of life - 11/25/2016
reno has a me first mentality. so if looking for long term relationships forget it. very hard to do. also 36% mexican american voting block. ok there but influenced by californians coming across from calif. and mexico. liberal thinking coming to nv. and voting. beautiful area in short travel time but mostly reno is behind in metro travel because of large population in a small area.concerns for gangs in reno and sparks is high,.our crime rate is growing. we do have an excelent university but very expensive and it seems the graduates go elsewhere. the mexicon peoples are mostly democrate but also very family oriented.mexicons produce large numbers of children and seem to be on assistance of tax dollars from the state.there is a large number of homeless here. also a very largh number of drug usersand so burgleries. this seems to be growing. so if one is looking for a mate for long term and a safe place to raise kids then think again. we have well meaning people here but mostly they Read More

RENO is a fairly easy city to get around in.Lots of places to eat.The police seem very polite here.Yes we do have crime but
it is like any other city.The one thing I really don't like is the pan handlers who you see by fast foot restaurants,the 7-11's, and even on street Read More

if you could rent anywhere in Reno/Carson/Minden a - 6/27/2016
Hi all. What I'm looking for is sort of a place where I can rent a good apartment or house, without "town" prices, which may be here nor there as far as Reno area goes. Can anyone tell me if Carson City get the same kind of vicious wind that Reno does? I am going to be semi-retired shortly (60 this fall but still chomping at the bit) and may only be living there for a year, or might stay. If you could rent a place, any place, in that Reno/Carson/Minden region, where would it be? I might end up staying, who knows. Thanks much. Read More

Reno Lifestyle - Why I love it here. - 3/21/2016
The title says it all, I Love Reno. I moved here in 1996, 20 years ago and have not regretted it one bit. I came here from the midwest (Chicago/Milwaukee area) where I was born and grew-up. Since coming out west and settling in Reno I have been back twice to visit family. I left mainly due to the winters, minus 20 degrees and winters that lasted 5 months were just too much.

The Reno lifestyle is moderation in everything. Four seasons and none of them are to long, to cold or to hot. No humidity. No bugs. No fleas. No traffic jams. 20 minutes gets you just about anywhere in a car in Reno. There are plenty of outdoor sporting activities, it's no surprise that Cabela's, Sportsman's Warehouse and Scheels are all located here. Summer brings a host of outdoor festivals and activities along with a good nightlife scene for all ages. Then there is Lake Tahoe a mere 40 minutes from downtown Reno. When winter does finally get here there are 6 ski resorts within an hour and a Read More

It's a trap! - 3/16/2016
I have lived in Reno Nevada for 17 years. I spent my life in Reno, from my pre-teens to now being happily married with a daughter. I see a lot of reviews for this place.... and they seems to all be written by the out of touch.

First off, the weather is not that great. A lot of people talk about how many days of sunlight or temp, but they're leaving out quite a bit of the story. First, the good: The temps and storms rarely get to be like anything you experience in other states. We get a few feet of snow sticking to the ground, if that. Rain is a bit more common the past couple years, but it doesn't linger for long. WIND! Ok, this one is a bit strange to me. Why won't anyone else warn people about this? We get the fiercest winds I've ever seen, and yes, I've been to Chicago and Wyoming. They're breezy by comparison. The wind may be more consistent in other locations but in Reno, the wind coming off the Sierra Nevadas can cause a windchill factor that will severely drop Read More
