“Great variety of activities to choose from. I’m originally from the country, so the sights of the city like trash and homelessness are unpleasant to me.” – Lynell H.
“It’s still a community where everybody helps each other, even as the city becomes more of a tech hub. The character of the people is still the same, which is nice.” – Doug R.
“Cost of living is too high compared to what jobs pay around here.” – Stasha W.
“Reno can be clear and beautiful on its good days. There are lots of hiking opportunities because of all the mountains around here on every side. However, there’s not much for night life, especially in the LGBT scene.” – Anon.
