Sun Valley Reviews
An average town. No much happens here, it is considered rural. Residents must find jobs in the surrounding towns as there is not much here. There is the usual crime rate, and schools aren't terrible but they are not very good either.
Sun Valley is a more simple town with very few defining characteristics. This I found to enjoy and appreciate after visiting larger cities. However, Sun Valley does have it's issues in crime and poverty. These issues can be resolved by taking specific action or through the natural progression of a city. I would like to see more safety precautions added to parts of Sun Valley such as sidewalks or nearby police stations.
Sun Valley, north of Reno/Sparks, accessed from the 395 N freeway. Majority manufactured/mobile homes, no apartments, two subdivisions in the NE area. It has an elementary and high school. It has a local fire/emergency. There is one medical, one dental office. Two hospitals 15 minutes away, urgent care centers 10 minutes away. There is one grocery store. There is one fast food, no restaurants, 4 gas stations. There are discount & auto stores, and one marijuana business. Marijuana is now legal for recreational consumption in NV. Commute to UNR is relatively short, about 15-20 minutes, except in heavy snow and ice. Jobs are limited in this area. There are 2 bars, one casino. There are no gyms or fitness centers in Sun Valley. Cost of living in Reno area is relatively high, IMHO. Overall, Sun Valley could be a great option for one desiring private space and who doesn't mind traveling to amenities.
