Yeah, the Post Office will be great. However, I am more excited about the full-time farmers market and baseball stadium. Downtown is really improving, and would be a great place to live.

Also, Sun Valley I see on the map is right next to Spanish/Wingfield Springs in Sparks which is supposed to be nice, is the something specifically wrong with Sun Valley?
Thank you in advance.
The Stead/Lemmon Valley area is reffered to as the N.Valleys. And is a decent area. I live there and have had no issues, I love it.

Sun Valley has 2 parts. Sun Valley and the new Sun Valley that is close to Pyramid Parkway. The new area is good, theres a housing development called Highland Ranch that is newer (within last 2 yrs) and has nice housing, but the "old" part of SV is not the best area, lots of drugs and such.

N. Reno is by Hug HS. Sutro st. Oddie Blvd, Trainer Way, Citron st ect. Very violent area. There are some neighborhoods that are trying to clean up, but there are still a lot of violent crimes and robberies often in that area.

Hope that clears things up a bit.

I'm not a resident, but I feel I would like that region. Reno is near Lake Tahoe, and I've seen pictures of suburban Reno and it looks pretty.

That Lake Tahoe area is gorgeous. There is a certain look to those fluffy-needled ponderosa pines gathered around that sapphire-blue mountain lake, ringed by gentle, snow-capped peaks. If/when you move there, it will be so fun to go up to that lake in the summer, or even ski or snowboard around it in the winter.

Default Casinos

What about casinos and the casino crowd, I was just in Las Vegas for a conference and i am not sure I could move my family there to live. As i was walking into my hotel PH I was approached by a prostitute right there in the hotel lobby. I am from south Texas and man was that uncomfortable, we are not used to that down here! I might have a business opportunity in Reno, I am just curious about the lure of casinos and prostitution in your city?

I recently moved from Reno to Charlotte, but we really loved living in Reno. Please know that it is nothing like Vegas. We found it to be very family oriented. Most folks don't spend too much time in the casinos, but we did occasionally bring our kids to a casino for a holiday brunch. We kept a close eye on them, but never encountered anything unpleasant (except of course, smoking).

My husband has yet to be propositioned in a Reno casino by a hooker.

While in Vegas, the hookers completely ignored I was standing within earshot to my husband and propositioned him at least one time per casino we visited.

The contrast between Vegas and Reno is pretty stark.

You will see brothel ads in Reno on taxis and such, but brothels themselves aren't allowed in Washoe County. Customers of such businesses have to travel out of the county lines.

Which is all good and fair to me.
