"Home, means Nevada, Home, means the hills. Home, means the sage and the pine. Out by the Truckee's silvery rills, Out where the sun always shines, There is the land that I love the best, Fairer than all I can see. Right in the heart of the golden west, Home, means Nevada to me."
Home Means Nevada
by Bertha Rafetto, 1932 | Official State Song
Ask any Nevadan and it's easy to see why they choose to call Reno and Sparks home. Nestled up against the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Truckee Meadows is a location where many raise their families, grow their business and see as a home-base for outdoor recreation.
Affectionately referred to as "The Biggest Little City in the World," Reno stands by its namesake, providing residents and visitors with a wealth of opportunity and lifestyle, yet maintaining a close-knit community feel. From the heart of Reno's bustling downtown with world-class resorts and innovative tech startups, to Midtown's unique art and culture and family friendly neighborhoods like the Old Southwest, Damonte Ranch, Somersett, Caughlin Ranch, and Galena among many others - Reno provides numerous options when it comes to real estate, both residential and commercial.
Traditionally known for it's deep roots in commercial and industrial properties, nearby Sparks, located east of Reno along the I-80 corridor, is now home to some of the best and brightest corporations on the cutting edge of technology. Just minutes away from the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center, Sparks serves as a logistics hub for many, a headquarters for others and as a whole, a center of innovation with direct access to Nevada's skilled workforce. Reaching out into the foothills of Sparks to the neighborhoods of Spanish Springs and Wingfield Springs, prospective homeowners will find a variety of single-family homes, many of which are located on larger parcels, adjacent to golf courses and just a short drive away from scenic Pyramid Lake.
Each season brings with it an array of outdoor recreation and events to the Reno-Sparks area. Events like Hot August Nights, The Great Reno Balloon Race, The Best in the West Nugget Rib Cookoff, The Reno Rodeo, Artown, The National Championship Air Races and Street Vibrations are all perennial favorites for both residents and visitors alike. From skiing and snowboarding, to hiking, mountain biking, hunting, minor-league baseball with the Reno Aces and soccer with Reno 1868, you'll soon understand why so many Nevadans choose to explore the beauty and surrounding areas right within their backyard.
Reno is also home to the University of Nevada, Reno, Nevada's oldest educational institution, along with Truckee Meadows Community College both of which are dedicated to providing future generations with a quality and comprehensive educational experience necessary in our world today.
