Calling all mountain lovers! For those seeking a more rustic lifestyle in Reno, Galena Forest invites a magnificent respite in the tall pines.

Mother Nature’s very own water feature, Galena Creek, rambles through the community and the neighborhood is bordered by miles and miles of BLM land with the adjacent Toiyabe National Forest.

Located off Mt. Rose Highway, Galena Forest is the perfect balance between city and suburb – tucked in the forest, yet conveniently close to everything. It’s just 10 minutes from Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe resort, 15 minutes from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and 20 minutes from beautiful Lake Tahoe.

Right across the highway from Galena Forest, you’ll find the Galena Creek Recreation Area. It is rich in natural and

What makes Reno so special?

Midsize cities in the U.S. are seeing a renaissance as people from large metro areas are getting sick of the hustle and bustle by putting down roots in smaller cities like Reno, Nevada. Compared to big cities, you’ll find better priced housing, improved quality of life, and business opportunities galore. What is the secret of the Biggest Little City that makes it such a great place to settle down? We have five great reasons why!

 

  1. YES to Business and Jobs; NO to Income Tax.

Just three short years ago, Tesla opened its Gigafactory and employed over 5,000 people. Soon after, other large companies followed suit like Apple, Switch, Microsoft, Intuit, and Patagonia. This movement created thousands of jobs for all

One of the largest winters on record graced the Reno-Tahoe region and each week we can feel it getting a little bit warmer.

When it seemed like spring would never come, suddenly the sun is shining! Those bluebird days put the itch of summer in our shoes and we’re looking forward to enjoying so many springtime activities. You can enjoy the best of both worlds, or as locals affectionately call it “The Tahoe Trifecta”.

What is the Trifecta? Golf, boat/kayak and ski all in the same day. Seems impossible, but we can guarantee you that it isn’t. The weather is just warm enough to be comfortable, but not so warm that the lake is full of boats and paddlers.

Many local ski resorts will be closing by the end of April, so get

The fall views in Lake Tahoe are absolutely stunning this time of year and we have the best hikes to enjoy a picnic and the views.

The best hikes end with aged cheese, cured meats and other delicious picnic items. Before the snow begins to flurry, fall is a great time to get out and enjoy all the diverse beauty of the Sierra Nevada. The many different colors and the crisp, clear air pair perfectly with the clear blues of Lake Tahoe’s waters (and of course a snack). No matter your hiking level, the five below range in distance and difficulty so there is a hike here for you!

Lake Margaret

The hike to Lake Margaret is an out-and-back trail of about 4.6 miles. Located in the El Dorado National Forest, there are large granite rocks all along the
