My husband and I recently moved to Spanish Springs, but so far, we have really liked it. While there are older areas in Spanish Springs, a lot of the area has been recently developed. Everything we need is easily accessible within Spanish Springs. One thing we enjoy most about living here is that it has a small-town feel, however you can be to Sparks/Reno within a few minutes.
I will say however, that there are a few negative aspects to living here. Spanish Springs is located in the desert, and it is, often times, pretty windy in the area causing dust and dirt to constantly feel the air. Additionally, the summers are miserably hot. That being said, the other seasons can’t be beat. I especially enjoy winter here. A few times a year we get a lot of snow, which I love; but, I also love when it melts, and it often is melted within a couple days’ time; allowing me to enjoy the snow without having to constantly live with it.
