So go back to Berkeley then. Nobody likes or wants you here. The sooner you leave the better.

This Thanksgiving, My husband and I stayed at the Peppermill in a spa suite for only $69 a night with a joining room for a extra $10 for our kids, We ate at Biminis the new steak house and we had a wonderful time. Only thing I disliked was the Customer Service at the front desk. Seemed they were understaffed for the hollys other then that we have a Carte Blanche room terrific food, room service spa treatments, you name it......... RENO ROCKS !!

A long time ago, I moved to Southern California (Orange County) during my college years, loved it...the beaches, the (now gone) orange groves, mountains and college party life. After graduating I realized it was terrifically overpriced if I ever wanted to own a home. I started a search for a fun place to live I could afford. I searched WA OR, AZ, CO and NV. I wanted to stay in the West, near recreation and have good employment opportunities, yet realistically everything is a compromise. I settled on Reno and moved there in 1982. I loved the skiing, Lake Tahoe and all the other nearby outdoor recreation, more than I can list. I was surprised how much tennis was available, a favorite sport of mine.

On the negative side, be very careful about dating the single moms, this town attracts them from everywhere, although I sympathize, they need to date the single dad's, not me, thank you. If you love the gambling lifestyle this town will devour you, let the tourists enrich the casinos and the state's tax coffers. If you're into drugs NV's criminal justice system will take care of you eventually because your habits aren't good for the state's gaming/tourism industry. Be honest with yourself, if you really have no career skills don't move here because this isn't the place for you. Finally, the frequent afternoon winds dropping out of the Sierra can be irritating after awhile.
If you're not especially interested in outdoor recreation there are probably many other places than Northern Nevada one might choose to live, please move there. Those into the "nightlife" scene, whatever that is, probably need to find a much bigger and older city, please move there. The same goes for "cultural enthusiasts"...Reno just can't compete with the budgets of cities like SF and NYC, please move there.
In contrast currently, I've been required to spend considerable time on the Central Coast of California, a place I once considered moving to. I don't like it at all. Boring, boring, boring. Surprisingly, there's very little tennis, obviously no snow skiing, limited water skiing if I choose to bring my boat down, and forget about the cultural/nightlife thing...the place is dead, dead, dead. There are gloomy overcast skies just about every morning much of the year. It's damp, damp, damp....plenty of toxic mold and termites. It rarely ever gets warm or cold. Watch out for the CHP and small town cops...they can't wait to write you up for even the miniscule...cell phone use, texting, seatbelt infractions...they'll think up something...because your plates make you an easy mark. Meanwhile one in ten Central Coast drivers has no license/insurance and/or registration and will run back to Mexico if they crash in to you. DUI's and car crashes are a big issue on the Central Coast. Bone up on your Spanish, you'll need it. Shopping is OK, after, all this country is fairly well homogenized in this regard, unless one get's really remote or needs Rodeo Drive.

Yep, I can't wait to get back to Reno and my ranch outside of town...sadly, NV is slowly being Californicated by those attracted by all that's good about it, yet ironically they move to NV and demand "fixes" that will just turn the state into a cloned suburb of California. Phooey!

I would think they would class it as a close area, but its scary how good the scenery within a small drive.

But someone actually from Reno might want to chip in

As far as Tahoe goes, It is considered part of the Reno/Carson/Tahoe region, economically. The entire area is hubbed by Reno so to speak, as the Reno/Sparks Metro serves about 750,000 people over a larger region. That is why for such small city we have all of the amenities of a larger city.

Geographically, Tahoe is it's own distinct place, like Carson, Reno and Truckee are. Many mountain ranges separate distinct areas which are all slightly different to wildly different.

If you want crazy night life, don't move here.
If you want to be inundated by mans many versions of culture every step you take, don't move here.
If you want predictable, stable weather day in and day out, don't move here.
If you want 8 major malls to shop at within 30 miles of you, don't move here.
If you want people to bend to your will when you ***** about something you don't like, don't move here.
If you despise the shooting sports, hunting and guns in general, don't move here.
If you enjoy partaking in drugs, even Mary Jane, don't move here, we have VERY strict drug laws.
If the thought of legal and licensed prostitution and gambling offends you, don't move here.
If you believe the line "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas", for your own sake, do not move here. Most of what happens in Vegas ends up in Lovelock or Carson City.

How's that for starters.
