Diversity Reigns in the Historic Wells Avenue District

By

Reno's Wells Avenue neighborhood and shopping district is still how Reno used to be when where you lived and worked weren't far apart. The area is a mix of businesses and homes along Wells Avenue, creating a district where most everything is within walking distance.Wells Avenue is a place where the passage of time and an influx of new people have made diversity a key ingredient to the flavor of the area. The flavor is predominantly Hispanic, but there is much more in the Wells Avenue melting pot. A sampling of what you will encounter walking along Wells Avenue includes Irish pubs, thrift shops, scrapbooking store, Hispanic supermarket, bank, BBQ restaurant, Mexican restaurants, western, wedding, and secondhand clothing stores, tattoo parlors, a seafood restaurant, florist shop, auto repair and parts places, and much more. It's a mixed bag in the residential areas that begin right behind the stores lining Wells Avenue, from aged beaters to beautiful renovations of historic brick homes.
