Are there cities (like Boston) in Northern or Central Nevada that one can live without a car? Thank you all once again!
Most large cities don't have many grocery stores in their downtown area and downtown areas in big cities are usually expensive. You could live somewhere like Sacramento, where even suburbs are served by decent bus service that would take you to any kind of shopping you needed.

Mammoth lakes, CA has free bus service year round. Using gambling monies, Nevada should annex mammoth, Bishop, ridgecrest, Truckee, susanville, and Tahoe, and California can have more resources to have its streets!

I've lived in Reno and social life in Reno takes place in the suburbs, like double diamond damonte ranch area, and Caughlin ranch. Such individuals aren't in the suburbs.

Riding buses all over town would put you in closer proximity to such individuals.

But keep in mind that all Reno streets are either very wide, or, they have bike lanes, since the Mormons planned the city. So it's easy to get around on a bike without a car! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐����������

I'm not sure what kind of social life takes place in Caughlin Ranch, but if someone was planning on taking a bus there, they'd better think again, the closest bus stop to Caughlin Ranch is 3 miles away.

A variety of shopping centers with restaurants, recreation centers, tennis, swimming, golf, running, mountain biking, etc. I don't know where the bus stops are but they wouldn't be that far away since lots of UNR students live in the apartments there.

I lived in Caughlin Ranch, it's 2200 homes with some duck ponds and walking paths, no rec center, golf, none of that. There is a bar and a Thai restaurant in the Scolari's shopping center...have you ever even been to Reno?

Nope, all of the homes in that area are part of Caughlin Ranch. There are some areas of Caughlin Ranch that have 'sub associations' in other words, you pay dues to the sub association and Caughlin Ranch but none of them have golf courses or club houses, a few have a small community swimming pool or tennis court but that's about it. Somersett has a golf course, maybe that's what you are thinking of?

if the OP was looking at living downtown they can access grocery shopping at the keystone square it might be a bit of a walk or bus ride also there is a walmart off second st near the GS, shopping is accessible but spread out and would take the OP a day to access several stores.
