Reno, Nevada: “The biggest Little City in the World.”

Settled outside the Las Vegas metro area, Reno, Nevada is right inside the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range at the edge of the Great Basin. It clocks in with over 225,000 residents and an average family size of 3.1. Reno is a desert climate resulting in extremely warm temperatures and only receiving about seven inches of rain per year. Reno can be found neighboring Carson City, Sun Valley and Sparks, Nevada. Similar to Vegas, Reno, Nevada is most famously known for its casinos and being the place where Caesars Entertainment Corp. had its beginnings. To me, Reno has always been one of the bright spots in the middle of nowhere.

Reno also is filled with tons of activities to take part in while visiting. Many locals and tourists spend time on Diamond Peak or Mount Rose skiing and snowboarding. When the weather shifts, Reno’s Truckee River is a prime spot to go whitewater rafting. Also, if you happen to be in the area in September, you’ll be just in time for the Reno Air Races, a seven day event that is described as the “world’s fastest motor sport.”

Reno Business Industry

Reno’s largest industries stem from tourism, casinos and hotels and technology and it’s top employers include Washoe County School District, University of Nevada, Reno, Washoe County, Renown Regional Medical Center, Peppermill Hotel Casino, International Game Technology, Integrity Staffing Solutions, Silver Legacy Resort Casino, Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center, Atlantis Casino Resort.
