Forbes Names Reno in Top 50 for Business and Careers

Reno is known for many things,

and some of them can raise a few eyebrows, we know.

Known as The Biggest Little City in the World,” we’re pretty famous for our casinos, shows, and lack of sleep-needing abilities.

Large special events hosted by our humble city like Hot August Nights and The Great Reno Balloon Race (among other fun and funky events, see Fall in Reno, or What to Do This July) bring thousands of tourists to Northern Nevada annually. This, on top of Tesla, Apple, Google, Amazon, and Patagonia picking up and moving to our beautiful landscape have really pushed that number up, too.

Reno’s casinos, Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts, Brüka Theatre, La Bussola, Sierra Arts, and the Reno Events Center offer so much to the city: concerts, art events, plays, and shows, as well as a budding art scene, makes Reno a cheap and affordable place for artists, entrepreneurs, and business owners alike a great place to settle down. Not mention, Nevada offers quite a few incentives for businesses that want to move here from CA.

Reno is located right by the Sierra Nevadas and Lake Tahoe. The MidTown District is lined with shops and restaurants. North of downtown, Animal Ark is a sanctuary for rescued bears, cheetahs, and other wildlife, and that’s not all.

As Reno locals, let us help you take full advantage of the city we know and love. Ryder Homes does not just build homes in Northern Nevada, we build communities. We have been working in the Northern Nevada area for more than 30 years and truly know where the party is, or the plays are – your choice.
