Searching for the perfect neighborhood is just as important as searching for the perfect home – if not more so. The western border of Nevada features three luxurious neighborhoods adjacent to the majestic Lake Tahoe and its surrounding natural landscape, but there are some important things to consider before making a selection if you’re trying to decide which of these neighborhoods is the best fit. The exact location and the area, the entertainment and festivities, and the range of restaurants available are just a few of the most important factors to help you best decide where to settle.

Read on for a guide to the area to help you make an informed decision!

The city of Reno is located along the state border it shares with California. Known as “The Biggest Little City in the World,” it’s host to a popular, booming nightlife with a generous array of restaurants and entertainment venues that distinguish the city. Reno homes have it all – the rugged, yet charming Nevada landscape, and a vibrant city life with tons to do and see.

Location

The Reno area is home to a diverse landscape, framed by deserts and mountains while also priding itself on its lively urban setting. Flashy lights, architectural wonders, and more than 300 days of sunlight a year make Reno the perfect destination for homeowners in search of a party next door. Not only that, Reno homes are only about an hour away from the beautiful Lake Tahoe, in case you ever need to satisfy your nature fix.

Entertainment

Reno is never lacking in its entertainment scene, hosting a variety of casinos and venues. The Silver Legacy Casino is one of the best casinos in the city, with a slew of shows, events, and attractions to truly make your night a memorable one. Reno also features various live music venues and concerts if you’re in search of even more excitement.

In regard to fine dining, Reno has plenty of options. The most popular is the Atlantis Steakhouse, voted as the Best Overall Steakhouse in Reno and having the honor of receiving the AAA Four Diamond award. Reno also offers other top-rated options, such as South Creek Pizza Co. and The Twisted Fork, among many, many others.

If Reno’s active nightlife and party scene sound like the perfect neighborhood for you, begin your search for Reno homes today!

Sparks

Located directly to the east of Reno, Sparks is another colorful city in the metropolitan area. In comparison to its westerly neighbor, it has less of a party scene and more of an artistic and cultural aesthetic, thanks to its rich, old railroad town history. If you’re not one for partying, perhaps Sparks real estate is better suited for you.

Location

Offering a quaint, picturesque community, Sparks real estate is perfect for those who prefer a quieter luxury lifestyle. With only a small commute to Reno, and a one-hour drive to Lake Tahoe, the city is a main hub for the Tahoe area, a nod to its history as a railroad town. Enjoy the convenience of the vibrant Reno next door while still reaping the benefits of a peaceful home.

Entertainment

Full of culture and history, Sparks has its own story to tell. The Sparks Heritage Museum and Cultural Center is the premier location to begin understanding Sparks at its core, as well as the lush Truckee Meadows surrounding the city. Sparks is also host to a variety of family-friendly events and venues, such as the Northern Nevada Dragonboat Festival and the Wild Island Family Adventure Park.

The Great Basin Brewing Company is the oldest brewery in Nevada, and for good reason. It’s currently rated as one of the top restaurants in the Sparks area, with a collection of both flagship and seasonal beer. The Steak House at Western Village is also another top choice if you’re in the mood for award-winning dining. Be sure to book a reservation first!

If you’re in the market for a peaceful community that still offers a variety of events right at your doorstep, then consider reaching out to a Sparks real estate agent to begin finding your dream home.

Tahoe

Perhaps you’d prefer a lakeside neighborhood with all of the charms of a panoramic landscape? If that’s the case, then the Tahoe lakefront is definitely the best choice for you. Tahoe luxury homes provide scenic mountainscapes and masterfully beautiful architecture for a living experience that surely must’ve come from a dream.

Location

Unlike Reno and Sparks, the Tahoe luxury lifestyle is centered around the natural outdoors instead of bustling city life. That doesn’t mean, however, that you’re completely disconnected from the glamor – Tahoe luxury homes are only an hour away from the Reno-Sparks metropolitan area. You can devote a weekend to driving up and enjoying the sights unique to each city and then drive right back to your idyllic sanctuary for a night of peaceful bliss among nature.

Entertainment

Believe it or not, Lake Tahoe has no shortage of events and festivities. It’s home to the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena, where the Summer Concert Series is held annually, giving you the chance to experience great music under a night full of stars. Lake Tahoe even has glamor of its own, offering an exciting nightlife with various lounges, bars, and casinos. Perfect for a night out on the town!

Restaurants

Have a taste for Mexican food? Maybe European? Maybe you’re interested in a quick bite and beer at the pub? Lake Tahoe has all of this and more, with crowd-favorites like the Azul Latin Kitchen and the Taste of Europe. It’s also home to cafes and bakeries if you’re looking to satisfy a sweet tooth or two.

If you’re interested in owning an elegant lakefront home with a marvelous view of Nevada’s prized jewel, then Tahoe luxury homes are the way to go. Reach out to an agent to help you find the sanctuary of a lifetime!
