I can't speak for the north, northwest or east part of the circle, but there are some great areas inside the SW portion of the circle. You may want to check out the Skyline area, such as Skyline Canyon apartments. Lakeridge is another nice area, near the south leg of the circle just west of Kietzke. Good luck in your search!

I disagree with the manager.

Also INSIDE the McCarran loop is a great place to look for tree lined streets!

So true! The houses inside the loop are typically older and the trees and shrubs have had time to grow and fill out. Outside the loop, there are many newer developments but shade is harder to find. While most areas of the newer developments have been nicely landscaped, the trees and shrubs are younger.

I live inside McCarran in the northwest... area is just fine. Neighborhood was built in the early 70's, some perhaps late 60's. Most houses have been maintained well. Shopping is close by, when they have balloon races they often land in the streets (due to underground utilities I'd imagine).

Everyone has an opinion, most will not be the same as yours. Explore areas yourself.

Dont know if I'll make it to Summit Sierra area. I was talking with the resturant mgr and he said stay out of the McCarren circle. Further out the better.

The nicer areas inside the McCarran loop are likely outside your price range and/or almost non-existent for renters.

Did you get a chance to explore the Marina area? Maybe Spanish Springs?

If you want tree, stay within McCarran loop.

Virginia lake is very nice. Lots of family, people with dogs walking around. No homeless people. Bad areas are several block away.

Look for a duplex or in-law unit west of Wells, they are generally still affordable and you don't have to deal with all the BS that goes along with living in large apartment complexes like assigned parking places and water bills that make no sense at all for 1 person in a 1 bdrm apt.
