Reno, Nevada

An ideal (and scenic) location to raise a family

With the mountains as our back drop and Lake Tahoe in our back yard, Reno, Nevada is an ideal location to raise a family. Sailing on Lake Tahoe every Wednesday night in the beer can races, is a great way to break the tension of your work week. Hiking to the top of Mount Rose, elevation 10,800 ft, is a wonderful Saturday morning reconnect with nature. Although the local economy is struggling, it is still one the great locations in the US to live.
