A national magazine, Men's Journal, has also noticed Old Southwest Reno. In a recent article titled The Best Neighborhoods in America: West, it was cited as one of America's "coolest hoods" among some 30 cities. Amenities mentioned include our abundant sunshine, whitewater recreation in the Truckee River, skiing just up the hill, reasonable cost of living, and proximity to a resurgent downtown.
Ellen Oppenheim, president and CEO of the Reno-Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority (RSCVA), had this to say about the Men's Journal mention - "I am thrilled to see the Reno Old Southwest neighborhood ranked as one of the top neighborhoods in America. The article highlights the many reasons why our region is so popular with visitors and residents alike. A ranking like this in a major magazine will tell people about our great weather, outdoor recreation opportunities and all the new development taking place in the destination, reinforcing the need to visit Reno-Tahoe to see it first-hand."
