Living in Carson City, NV

Carson City is a town in western Nevada nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Although it’s a small town, Carson City has been the capital of Nevada since 1864, and many local renters work in government. Carson City was originally settled as a trading post and continued to grow throughout the 19th century as the result of a mining boom. Downtown Carson City still has many historic attractions, including the Nevada State History Museum and the Nevada State Railroad Museum. Today, Carson City is a popular place for renters who enjoy spending time outdoors. For instance, there are dozens of hiking trails nearby, and the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe is just a 30-minute drive from downtown. At Lake Tahoe, locals can enjoy hiking, boating and swimming during the summer, as well as skiing at nearby resorts during the winter. Many retirees also choose to rent in Carson City due to the area’s warm weather and laidback culture. While the town experiences all four seasons, winters are very mild with minimal precipitation.

Renting in Carson City, NV

Another reason many renters move to Carson City is the affordability: Rents in Carson City are far below the national average, although they have slowly increased over time. Interestingly, Carson City has laws prohibiting the construction of buildings taller than the state capitol. As a result, the downtown area is made up almost entirely of single-family homes, with some low-rise apartment buildings, as well. Most rental properties in Carson City feature beautiful views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains. Small bungalows and ranch homes are the most common architectural styles in the area. Additionally, many of the rental properties in Carson City are older, as construction tends to happen at a slow pace. Because of this, renters may experience high competition for properties in the area.

Things for renting

Shopping in Carson City, NV

While Carson City doesn’t have too many shopping options to choose from, there are still plenty of places where renters can pick up their essentials. Specifically, grocery stores in the area include Smith’s Grocery Outlet, Trader Joe’s and Raley’s. Renters also have access to two Walmart locations, as well as Costco, Target, Kohl’s and Marshall’s for other shopping needs. That said, many local renters drive 30 minutes north to Reno for more shopping options. The nearest mall is the Summit, which is located along I-580 and has a variety of upscale stores to choose from. Or, renters who frequently visit South Lake Tahoe will also find many local shops to choose from there.

Transportation in Carson City, NV

The primary mode of transportation for renters in Carson City is driving. Outside of the small downtown Carson City area, neighborhoods are not walkable. Because neighborhoods are spread out and the terrain is hilly, a car is the safest and fastest way to get around. For this reason, apartments and businesses in Carson City typically offer free parking, and some rentals also offer covered garages. Currently, there are no forms of regional public transit in the area. Therefore, renters who want to access Greyhound buses or Amtrak trains will need to travel north to Reno. Reno is also home to the nearest international airport. Alternatively, Carson City does have a small local bus network that consists of three routes. However, service is very limited, which means it isn’t a reliable option for most renters in the area.
