Reno / Tahoe Neighborhoods
Reno Credit Unions Offer Banking Services, Without the Bank
Reno credit unions provide the same services as banks, with one big difference - customers are members of the organization who profit from its success and have a say in how it is run. Members actually vote for the board, which is charged with providing value and good service to members. Credit unions are nonprofit organizations and in good financial health.
Reno Traffic Calming
You'll notice traffic calming in action in city neighborhoods in the form of roundabouts, speed tables, intersection islands, and various types of street markings designed to slow people down and/or alter traffic patterns.
Downtown Reno's Riverwalk District
The Riverwalk District is downtown Reno's shopping area. Visit shops, boutiques, art galleries, and other attractions while you stroll along the Truckee River.
Shopping Malls, Centers, and Districts
Reno / Tahoe shopping has quickly made major progress. In just the last few years, shopping centers big and small have sprung up in every part of the metro area. This has been accompanied by facelifts at some of the older centers, an influx of small boutiques and shops, and the revitalization of some fun and funky shopping districts like Wells Avenue, California Avenue, and downtown Reno.
When I was in college, a newlywed, and broke, I discovered thrift stores. These places are fun and save you a bunch of money. Our Reno / Tahoe thrift stores are a motley lot, but that's part of the fun. Poke around and you are guaranteed to find something useful. Another plus; stores run by non-profit organizations do not charge sales tax...
