unnamed-12What it's like to live in Reno/Tahoe, Nevada: 

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.

The city has a lively but somewhat quirky downtown mixing older casinos and entertainment venues with modern commercial buildings, convention facilities, and modern casinos. Gambling and entertainment don’t dominate as they do in Las Vegas to the south. Sparks to the east is a commercial and industrial center but is starting to grow as a less expensive suburban alternative. The Sierra Nevada and Lake Tahoe areas to the west offer a wide range of recreational opportunities, with national forests and world-class ski areas.
