Nice, quiet place to live in. Only 10-15 minutes away from downtown. The Community are really nice and friendly. New houses are being built and growing very quickly. The freeways need a little work, traffic is becoming a little more congested during rush hours. Elementary, Middle School, and the High School is only 5 minutes away and are good schools. Grocery stores are really close as well.

Living in Reno has been great. I only gave it four stars because there is no ocean, but living thirty minutes away from Lake Tahoe and Frenchman's Lake is a blessing. Being able to go skiing every winter and swimming every summer in the same place is a privilege.
I feel extremely safe in my neighborhood, but there are a few locations in town that I do not enjoy going to merely for safety concerns. The police have been more visible the part few months, but certain crimes have increased.
