Nevada's State Fair is back, July 30th thru Aug. 3, 2014

If you are looking for a sunny, dry climate, with great housing values Carson City definitely deserves your consideration. Carson City’s population is 47,000, and it is 4800 feet above sea level. You are only 15 miles away from one of the most popular tourist destinations, Lake Tahoe which gives you access to downhill and cross country skiing during the winter. During the summer and fall there is unlimited hiking and bicycling trails that allow you to enjoy some of the best views in the world. For you fishermen/boating enthusiast Tahoe is second to none.

If you are looking for access to a larger metropolitan city, Reno is just 30 miles of freeway driving away. Reno is home to the University of Nevada.
