How We Determined The Largest Cities In Nevada

We've been ranking and dissecting cities in the Silver State for over 4 years now -- making this actually the fourth time we've run the numbers. We always use the best data, the US Census. In this case, that means we are using the 2013-2017 American Community Survey.

It what is probably the most simple analysis we run each year, we ranked every place in Nevada from biggest to smallest. The biggest city this year? That would be Las Vegas.

The smallest? Schurz, although there are places smaller than 1,000 people not listed here, so keep that in mind as we take a look at the top ten.

Review Of Las Vegas by HomeSnacks User

Overall Las Vegas is a great city to live in. The crime is a problem in certain areas. You have to always keep an eye out on everything, but I feel like thats a great thing to do no matter what city youre in. The schools are over crowded and the district is desperate for teachers. The weather is great, its hot but there are very few natural disasters that will wipe anything out here.

Honestly if you live her you dont go onto the strip much. There are locals casinos that have buffets and give discounts, so,any people spend time there. Theyve got movie theaters, bowling alleys, some have malls next to them. I would avoid the strip. Its a huge tourist trap and very hard to navigate. Youll be stuck in traffic forever.

Review Of Henderson by HomeSnacks User

I love visiting Henderson with my family. There are so many choices for shopping and dining. It is near the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas, but since it is on the outskirts, it is chill.

Favorite Henderson places for lunch include The Cheesecake Factory at Green Valley and In-N-Out burger on Eastern. Pick up designer cupcakes at The Cupcakery also on Eastern. Grab your healthy food choices at Trader Joes on Eastern. For clothing, teens love Rapsodielle on Stephanie Street across from the old Toys R Us.

Review Of Reno by HomeSnacks User

Literally one of the worst places I've ever been in my life.

A m**h-infested hellhole with gambling. Tattoo parlor on every corner. Crime seems pretty ridiculous. The weather is always terrible.

Review Of Spring Valley by HomeSnacks User

Minimal from what I have experienced in the last 10 years I've lived here. Schools are pretty bad, but safe in my area. Love the location and proximity of the Famous Las Vegas strip and LAS airport as well as the shopping malls and supermarkets. I think the housing prices have gotten a little out of control, but recently seem to be coming back down to earth.

The terrible schools, from elementary to the lack of universities and colleges available in the city and state as a whole. The drive in theater, although located in North Las Vegas, it's still one ofmy favorite places to go. Town Square is a favorite with the family because you have everything there, but a car dealership. Can be pricey to hangout for drinks and food, but that's why happy hour exist I suppose. I guess the size of the homes for the money that's being ask for is pretty sad and disappointing. I also hate that the schools provide so little to the student athletes and the parents are responsible for so much that it feels like I'm paying them for my child to participate.

More on Carson City: PhotosHomes For Sale | Data

Carson City, officially the Consolidated Municipality of Carson City, is an independent city and the capital of the US state of Nevada, named after the mountain man Kit Carson. As of the 2010 census, the population was 55,274. The majority of the population of the town lives in Eagle Valley, on the eastern edge of the Carson Range, a branch of the Sierra Nevada, about 30 miles south of Reno. The town originated as a stopover for California bound emigrants, but developed into a city with the Comstock Lode, a silver strike in the mountains to the northeast. The city has served as the capital of Nevada since statehood in 1864 and for much of its history was a hub for the Virginia and Truckee Railroad, although the tracks were removed in the 1950s. Prior to 1969, Carson City was the county seat of Ormsby County. In 1969, the county was abolished, and its territory merged with Carson City to form the Consolidated Municipality of Carson City. With the consolidation, the city limits today extend west across the Sierra Nevada to the California state line in the middle of Lake Tahoe. Like other independent cities in the United States, it is treated as a county-equivalent for census purposes.
