4 Reasons to Love Living in Elko, Nevada

  • This place is about as authentic and true to the image of the American West as can be. Elko sits astride the Humboldt River in one of the most remote areas of the country. Still, the city of over 18,000 is a modern outpost that serves as a regional shopping and commercial center. The settlement started as a railroad town along the first transcontinental route. Rail and ground transportation are key industries to this day, with I-80 passing directly through town.

  • Great entertainment! Because Elko is the largest city in any direction for 130 miles, the locals have made their own options. The gambling laws of Nevada also mean the city draws casino fans from all over, especially from the Salt Lake City area. Stockman's is an historic downtown landmark that has welcomed gamblers and entertainment fans for decades. Another place with a lot of history is Commercial Casino, which was originally built in 1869 and called the Humboldt Lodging House.

That means sellers are likely taking offers. Look for rent to own homes along Mountain City Highway for newer properties or on the north end of town near Elko High School for more established houses.

Take the scenic drive up Mountain City Highway to Wildhorse Reservoir for good fishing or go through Lamoille up to Ruby's iconic peaks.
