What Renters Like and Dislike About Carson City

Nice and quiet while still being close to necessities. Schools, groceries, fuel and restaurants within short distance.

There is a few nice bars which I tend to go to and several nice shopping centers and Costco. The schools here are good the education system as a whole is a joke though

I love the human bean that's right by my house. The people are super friendly. There's a big park less than a mile away.

There's a park called mills park near by the grocery store is also nearby called smiths and we live at a no through street so it's not an exiting street just safer for kids to play

Tucked into a picturesque valley in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, Carson City is a friendly town that's known for its great weather and laid-back atmosphere.

The Governor's Mansion, Old Carson City Post Office and the St. Charles Hotel all attract thousands of history buffs on an annual basis. Carson City also has two major casinos within its city limits. Casino Fandango's entertainment complex is particularly popular with day-trippers from Reno, as well as second homeowners who live in the area around Lake Tahoe.

Carson City Natural Beauty

It's also a jumping-off point for boaters, fishermen and hikers who flock to Lake Tahoe during the warm months. The area's many rivers attract white-water rafters and kayakers as well. Meanwhile, several world-class rock formations in the heart of the nearby mountains draw rock-climbing enthusiasts from as far away as Europe.
