Looking to move to Nevada
Hello! I’m looking to move to Nevada to either Reno/Sparks or Las Vegas/Henderson/North LV. I’m looking at these areas since they are still driving distance or a short flight to the Bay.
Can anyone share their experience of either of these areas in terms of diversity, public and private schools, special education (our son has high functioning autism), culture, weather, and political or religious views? Which city would you recommend?
A little about us… we are a multicultural family of 3, born and raised in the Bay Area and lived in Oakland the last 11 years. All of our family lives in the Bay and we are very close to them. My parents have helped with our son who is 7 since he was born. We’re leaving for most of the same reasons everyone else had: lawlessness (at least in Oakland), too congested/traffic, want a bigger house, but can’t afford 2 million plus, wanting a more moderate political view community, and the Bay as we knew it as kids to young adults is not the same anymore.
We value racial diversity and want our son to grow up playing with all races which is why we originally settled in Oakland. We value an emphasis on family and want to live in a community that does too. We like to ride bikes, hike, go to the beach, and explore natural surroundings. We are Christian, moderate in political views and would like to find a community where people have similar views. Lastly, we love to eat at the various ethnic restaurants in Oakland and the Bay, but that is more of a want than need.
If you can suggest a city in Nevada or other state that has what we’re looking for please share your experience, it is much appreciated!
