Rich in both beauty and cultural resources, Elko County is a peaceful, friendly place to live—the perfect merger of small town charm, business-friendly community and easy access to larger cities. In fact, the City of Elko was ranked #1 “best small town in America” by Norman Crampton’s 1993 book. And West Wendover attracts as many as 25,000 tourists each weekend.
The diverse terrain of Elko County includes high desert scenery, jagged mountain peaks and acres of lush public parks. Enjoy living just minutes from natural wonders, scenic trails and quiet ghost towns.
Beauty and charm aren’t our only amenities. Take advantage of the fully equipped Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital, as well as a number of smaller medical facilities. For ongoing education, Great Basin College offers two- and four-year degrees, as well as training courses. And our thriving tourism industry means that charming historic sites, fun events and rustic restaurants are at your fingertips.
For weekend getaways, Reno and Salt Lake City are just a few hours away on I-80. It’s easy to take advantage of city amenities and still come home to peaceful small town charm.
