In terms of what Reno can offer entrepreneurs that the other cities on this list may not – it’s stacked. “The Biggest Little City in the World” ranks in the top 5 for small business loans and health care coverage; the top 15 for diversity, housing affordability, and per capita food spending; and the top 20 for household income growth. All of these combined make Reno one of the best places to live in America, hence why we’ve named it as such on our Top 100 Best Places to Live list three years in a row so far.
