I'm assuming there are some Reno residents who have lived in Sac or are familiar. Considering a move to Reno, for a job located near the airport. I looked up whether there is a food co-op in Reno, and there is one called Great Basin Food Co-op near the river on Court Street. Looking at Google Maps, there is also a library, art museum and river nearby, which is promising.

I would love to find a neighborhood with a vibe similar to Midtown, East Sac or Curtis Park in Sacramento, if such a thing exists in Reno. Desired characteristics include:
- Mature trees
- Walkable
- Interesting independent coffee shops, restaurants etc.
- Art galleries
- Early 20th Century craftsman houses
- Farmer's markets
- Good parks and/or bike trails would be a plus

Midtown Reno is similar to Midtown Sac. Also, over the Arlington Street bridge to the South isn't bad either. Lots of bungalows, and public transit is accessible. Very walkable. I'd be living over there myself if I had a job and enough to afford rent.

Midtown Reno is similar to Midtown Sac but since we're a high desert, we have prob half the trees as Midtown Sac. Midtown Reno in my definition is south of downtown or Liberty St to the north, Wells Ave to the east, Plumb Ln to the south, and Plumas to the west. It is an up-and-coming neighbhorhood with lots of vintage clothing stores, new bars, craft wine and beer, a local microbrewery, trendy green restaurants, a food co-op, a strip club, a wine bar, coffee shops, small indie/boutique retail stores, and profligate hipsterism. Wear Clark Kent glasses, black tights, and an ironic vintage shirt and ride a fixie, and you'll fit in just fine.

Thanks. The name will make it easy to remember . So on that note, if you are familiar with Sac, are there any areas just outside Midtown Reno that are more equivalent to the vibe of Curtis Park/Land Park/East Sac? In other words, the places where people with black tights and vintage shirts move after they have kids. Just going by Google Streetview, the area west of Plumas looks pretty nice.

Are there any nice parks or bike trails along the Truckee River in Reno?
