Review of Reno, Nevada


DO NOT MOVE HERE. YOU'RE SAFER IN L.A.
Star Rating - 9/2/2020
DO NOT MOVE HERE. I've lived here almost 30 years. It's more dangerous to live in Reno, NV than in Los Angeles. Look it up. The schooling is Horrendous! A student with a C average is considered a STELLAR STUDENT. It's riddled with drug addiction, prostitution, unemployment so high that people are losing, or have lost, their homes. The Homeless problem is INCREDIBLE. I used to be able to fly fish in the Truckee River, just below the old Monastery. The monks left 15 years ago. Now it's littered with dirty people, dirty needles and garbage. Tents line the river banks. Children are snatched every day. Sex trafficking is rampant. DON'T BUY INTO THE PROPAGANDA.
The businesses want to pay $10 hour. But houses are in the $350,000 to $2,000,000.
I've met 8 good people in 30 years. Evil is the accepted norm.

Although I prefer Carson City over Reno for quality of life and excellent city leadership and agree with you that crime is exploding in Reno, I have to point out that comparing any city in CA to Reno for crime is misleading. CA has decriminalizing crime, so the stats are skewed.
