I am a 28 yr old male considering moving to Reno. I am a huge skier who loves the outdoors thus Reno seems like a perfect spot. I was wondering if anyone who lives in Reno may be able to help me in regards what area's I may want to look for an apartment in. I am currently live in Birmingham, MI, a suburb of Rochester, MI. I will most likely be working in Reno so I need a town that is a short drive to Reno but at the same time not to far from Mt Rose so I can ski during the week. I prefer a suburbian type area that is safe and has local shopping / restuarants / bars close by. Any information or help you can provide would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I've mentioned this before, but NW Reno (89523 zip code) was ranked as one of the top places to raise a family in the United States by the authors of "Cities Ranked and Rated". You would also be closer to all the Tahoe ski areas, while still being within a half-hour drive or so to Mt. Rose.

There's plenty of places to shop, eat, or drink within a few minutes drive. It's kind of "Yuppieville".

If I were you I would look in South Reno near the new mall. It is located on Mt. Rose Highway and a quick trip (maybe 20 min.) to the ski slopes from there. There are condos nearby but the only apartment complexes that come to mind are located off of So. Meadows Parkway - still in So. Reno and close to Mt. Rose hwy.

I will say it now and mark my words; 10 years from now, the south meadows will be ghetto central.

Oh please.

Maybe if there was a huge seismic event in Sun Valley.

South Meadows is a great place. People walk around after dinner and know their neighbors. Lots of hardworking people and young families who didn't spend half a million for their house, 20m drive to Mt. Rose for awesome skiing.

I've seen bad areas evolve over time before in cities much larger than Reno.

Trust me, there are a lot of other areas in Reno/Sparks that have the makings for turning bad. South Meadows doesn't even have the density required.
