Loads of schools both public and private, with more in the works. Big events year-round, averaging one biggie per month, ranging from hot air balloon races, rodeo, air races, food fests , nearby Burning Man, parades for numerous reasons, a growing art scene,....there's just so much going on lately. Plus the casinos. All this and a decent sized river coursing downtown that hosts kayak contests. A construction boom is in progress.

Watch out for the poorly maintained roads, impatient tail riding drivers, and extreme temperatures; summer is very hot and winter is bone chilling cold with a lot of snow possible. Rain, hail, high winds, drought, avalanches (in mountain areas) flooding, wildfires, it has it all. The sheer number of special events and stuff to do in a city this size (250,000 approximately) is pretty amazing.

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

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