I love cold springs because it's a more ideal place to raise my children and the schools are absolutely wonderful with the kids. It's a smaller community, everyone is friendly and neighborly. I feel safe about my children going outside and playing. It's also so much quieter then being in town which is consistently chaotic. There are a couple of convenient stores and a couple of restaurants. Also, there are a few nice family parks even a skate park and basketball quarts. Very family oriented and a beautiful place to raise a family. My reasoning for only four stars is because I feel that a few more things could be done for instance public transportation. If you don't have a vehicle or something happens to it and you need to get to town you're going to have a long walk ahead of yourself. Public transportation would definitely fix a huge part of any negative thoughts about cold springs. For the most part, I love cold springs and hope to see many more years to come.

The good things about Cold Springs are the wild life and outstanding views we get. The best view is on one of the mountains or neighborhood trails. Cold Springs is one of the only places in the Truckee Meadows that actually has visible stars. The wildlife makes everything come together. So majestic and beautiful.
My long term plan of action is to get a CPA cert. and buy a comparable house in Orange Co. Ca. If I had it to do over again I would have never allowed my wife to talk me into moving here! I've had my fill of the lousy weather, the high altitude, the lousy economy, the corruption on both the part of the govt. AND most of the business owners who have a holier than thou attitude.
