A growing number of retirees choose Reno and Sparks as a place to settle and enjoy life, and it’s not hard to see why. Here are nine reasons it makes sense to retire in northern Nevada:
• An attractive tax climate. There’s no personal income tax in Nevada, and that helps precious retirement dollars stretch farther and pay for more of the good things in life.
• Cost of living that compares favorably, yet another factor that helps assure a comfortable and worry-free retirement.
• Excellent variety of housing, ranging from downtown condominiums to luxury homes along verdant fairways, at affordable prices. Retirees can find just the right neighborhood for themselves in Reno and Sparks.
• An open, friendly lifestyle. Reno and Sparks are open and welcoming to newcomers. Whether you’re at church, a golf club or a reading group at the local library, it’s easy to make new friends in Reno and Sparks.
• The opportunity to make a difference. If your retirement plans include opening your heart and your hands to the world around you, Reno and Sparks have a multitude of opportunities. You can provide care to a stray animal, help a first-grader learn to read, serve on a nonprofit board. Your new community will appreciate what you bring.
• Excellent, accessible transportation to the rest of the world. If retirees are journeying to see the great cities of the world or traveling to see the newest grandchild, the exceptional air, highway and rail network in northern Nevada brings any destination within reach.
• Mild winters and cool summer breezes. Heavy snowfall is rare in Reno, even though the peaks to the west of the city may be covered after a winter storm. Most overnight snowfall melts away in the morning sun. Summer days are warm, but never muggy, and an evening breeze — the “Washoe Zephyr” — is a regular visitor.
• Top-flight medical care. Hospitals in Reno invest in the newest technology, and healthcare professionals stay abreast of the latest research. But they remain old-fashioned in important aspect: They care for their patients as people, as friends, as neighbors in the community.
• There’s plenty to do. Whether your active lifestyle takes you to the golf course and ski slopes or your cultural interests take you to the symphony and the art museum, there always is something to do. There’s a reason they call this “The Biggest Little City.”
