Located south of Reno in the extreme west of Nevada, Carson City is a small capital city near the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Carson City features government buildings, an assortment of casinos, and a few points of interest, including the Nevada State Railroad Museum. Lake Tahoe to the west and the mining town of Virginia City offer recreational opportunities and historic interest, but the city suffers from a high cost of living and relative isolation as well as a lack of arts and culture.
Reno is located 30 miles north of Carson City, across a low mountain pass. It features many of the entertainment and shopping conveniences that are lacking in Carson City. Reno describes itself as the "Biggest Little City in the World," and has historically been a center of transportation, mining, and gambling. The tax climate is favorable and outdoor recreational opportunities abound, but rapid population growth and expansion has led to desert sprawl and crowding, increasing the already high cost of living.
Las Vegas is a unique metropolis and resort city in the middle of the southern Nevada desert. Gambling, entertainment, and tourism are the top drivers of the economy, and Las Vegas is famous for its Strip, which is home to many hotel-casinos attracting visitors from all over the world. For many years, even without the impact of tourism, Las Vegas has had the highest growth rate for a large metropolitan area, but the city also has a high crime rate and significant socioeconomic disparity. Las Vegas has a pleasant winter climate but temperatures can be uncomfortably hot during the summer. The University of Nevada at Las Vegas, along with the healthcare sector, accounts for significant employment.
