Let's see here, living in Fernley for over 20 years gives you a bit of a perspective on things. Some of those things include figuring out where you are in life and where you want to go. Although Reno is only a half an hour drive away, the question would be, "is there enough to do in Fernley to keep me entertained?" I'll try to answer that the best that I can.
There isn't much to do in town and that can be a bit on the boring side if you are one of the more "stay at home" types of people. I would enjoy an evening at Fernley Park when I got off from work, but to each their own.
A travelers town is the vibe you get living here and the school systems as well as crime is up to par with the state. I figure if you include the pay versus what you have to pay out then, you find that living here is a perfect level of balance without much more to tip the scale.
