Finding Apartments for Rent in Fernley, NV

Fernley, Nevada is situated on the western corner of Nevada, in close proximity to Reno and Carson City. The town sits on Interstate 80 and provides the crossroads for those heading to Pyramid Lake to the north, and Lahonton State Recreation Area to the south. The town is also the split for traffic heading east since Interstate 80 and highway 50 split, sending traffic northeast and eastward across Nevada.

Fernley is home to just under 20,000 residents and 5,200 families, which is a huge growth from 654 residents back in 1960. The median income is approximately $53,000 and family spending reaches $55,200 annually. The town was first established back in 1901, but it wasn't incorporated until 2001, 100 years later.

Weather in Fernley, NV

Fernley is located squarely in a high desert region. As a result, it is fairly dry most of the year. The winters can be cold, however. During the summers the temperature flips and the warm season is extremely hot and arid. The town also gets more than its fair share of wind, but that's normal weather behavior in a desert.

Shopping in Fernley, NV

The town has its share of big box stores, so there are plenty of resources between Wal Mart and Lowes to find most of what ones needs for household and construction materials.

Fernley, NV, has for decades enjoyed being the cross roads for truckers, truck stop fans, and travelers passing through Nevada. However, its modern-day life is more of a bedroom community to Reno-Sparks than as an isolated town on the desert plains. With modern car traffic easily covering the distance of 30 minute commutes without issue, many have chosen the town for its low cost of living while pursuing higher salaries in Reno. That said, Fernley does offer residents isolation from the bigger city traffic, and it's close proximity to Reno's airport makes it easy for anyone living in Fernley to get anywhere else if needed. No surprise, the town continues to be on the list of retirees and tax haven types looking to avoid California's high cost of living.
