Traffic & Commuting

Traffic & Commuting

Marcus Daniels - Real Estate Agent

Since Reno is the only major city that is nearby, commuting for Spark’s residents is usually very short since many work within the city or in Reno. The average commute for residents is about 10 to 20 minutes and if commuting to Reno residents take I-80, making for a very fast commute. Since I-80 bisects Sparks, the traffic around the interstate can be heavy, especially when tourists are traveling from the east to go to Reno. However, not many people travel through the other parts of Sparks since it is slight secluded, making for light traffic during the day when residents are running errands or going about their daily lives.

Sparks Marina is home to the city’s only dog park and a number of other amenities making it the perfect place for the whole family. The dog park is located right on Sparks Marina Lake and includes a large fenced in area, perfect for off-leash play. The park slopes right down to the water and allows your dog to take a swim in the lake or play fetch in the water. There is also a small wash station in order to clean your dog after they go for a swim in the lake. The lake also has a two mile path that goes along the edge of the lake and is a great place to take a run with your dog after a nice swim.

Las Vegas is the premier nightlife destination in the entire U.S., without a doubt. Millions of people from around the world visit this city for the nighttime activities such as gambling, music shows, and clubbing. The nightlife is why Las Vegas is unofficially known as the “Sin City,” and why people say that “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” You won’t know the full meanings of those expressions until you visit here and see our world-class hotels, casinos, nightclubs, music venues, and restaurants. Whether you’re playing slots, seeing Cirque du Soleil, or just walking down the strip, you will see why the city is the country’s number one tourist destination.

 
Restaurants

One of the largest draws to Las Vegas, in addition to its entertainment and gambling options, is its fine dining. Once you see the prices, you’ll realize it’s very fine dining. Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, Joel Robuchon, and Restaurant Guy Savon are a few of the incredibly expensive restaurants that also have the best ratings in town. For less expensive options, the Geisha Steakhouse, the Settebollo Pizzeria Napoletana, Chef Marc’s Pastavino & Deli, and Sushi Freak offer very high quality cuisine for a cheaper price.
