10 Reasons Reno is the BEST place to live in the West.

Every time I see an article offering a list of The Best Places to Live, I quickly scroll through the bulleted list in hopes of spotting my hometown of Reno included somewhere in the mix. I admit, it is the competitiveness coming through. I love Reno so everyone else should too - right? In the interest of full disclosure, I am from California originally and lived in Truckee for 18 years.  For many years, I would drive to Reno for a day of shopping at Costco, Trader Joe's, Macy's and about 40 other shops. I did not venture into Old Southwest Reno or Caughlin Ranch so I missed how much this town had to offer. Over the past few years I have watched this city flourish with more incredible restaurants, increasing support of small businesses and neighborhoods like Midtown re-invent itself. I was thrilled to see Reno once again made Liveability’s Top 100 Best Places to Live  In 2014, Reno was included on this list in the top 10 – so impressive! 


I feel very fortunate to live in Reno and I when I say it is awesome, I can back it up! Below are the top 10 reasons Reno is one of the best places to live…


#10  Membership at the Nevada Museum of Art.  I love the modern architecture of this gorgeous building. The art exhibits catch you by surprise and the restaurant, Chez Louie is very good.


#9    Watching the Midtown District become the “coolest” part of Reno. A group of small business owners working collaboratively to improve an area of our town.  The best underdog story in the making.  Amazing restaurants, fun bars and interesting shops.  


#8    The Truckee Riverwalk area. Voted one of 10 Best Riverwalks in America by Travel & Leisure Magazine. See photo below and decide for yourself how awesome it is to have a river running through our city.


#7    University of Nevada, Reno. Teir One University status - need I say more?


#6    Taking in a game at the Reno Aces Ballpark. Affordable family baseball fun - or head upstairs to the open-air bars. 


#5    A show at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts. Broadway shows in Reno.


#4    Really, really good restaurants. SoDo, Brasserie Saint James, Campo, Brewers Cabinet, Midtown Eats and more opening everyday.


#3    A day at Lake Tahoe. Ok, Lake Tahoe is at least 30 minutes from Reno so it is borderline tricky to include in a list of the best parts of Reno but it is so awesome and make Reno awesome becasue it is so close.


#2    The month of July attending ArtTown events. Everyone looks forward to the month of July with multiple ArtTown events each night.  


#1    Affordable living in a beautiful place.  This one I am better off showing you in person. Contact me here.
