Default Small town nevada ?



Advertise Here

Does anyone who has traveled the back roads of Nevada know of a
SMALL town, village, community, (say 100 people or less)?
Have been searching the internet, and on checking out these towns;
their not as small as they say.
I want off the beaten path. Miles from anywhere.
Does anyone remember the movie, 'Tremors'. Perfection, NV., A small community like
that I would really like. Nothing there.
Let me know the name if you know of one.

Just blasted through there. Saw one just as you described, however, in checking out the downtown part of this tiny community, 90% of the business had closed their doors for good. Sad scenario.

So, whats the towns name ?
Do you remember what county it is in ?
All & any info. is highly appreciated, I really am seeking a
small town to move to, even though its not cost effective
due to most likely high traveling cost to services in larger city.

Do you have other reasons for wanting Nevada? I'm just curious as to why anyone would pick it as a hideout! There are definitely miles and miles of people-less country, but not many trees! At least not where I've been...

I've been thru there and seen what you described but only stopped at one. I don't remember the name and it had 1 store/post office/pizza/sandwich joint on the only corner in town right next to the only stop sign. I think what kept the place alive was the railroad yard across the road. Nothing else there or near by, I only stopped for gas and am glad I did!
I'll look back in the vacation diary my wife kept and see if anythings in there, don't hold your breath tho!

You ask, why Nevada !
Having lived in many places around the U.S., I find rural Nevada to be
one of the lease restrictive & the laws and regulations in general can be
lived with. (taxes, zoning, politics, etc.) All except for Las Vegas of course.
Yes, I would want more trees & running water, and have considered Idaho;
but the winters there can be brutal.
Many places in the eastern states would suit me except for the high
population, which of course brings along with it all the crazy regulations &
more gov. control.
Who knows where I really end up in the long run !

I would wonder about the reliability of water in most places west of the Rockies.
I agree Idaho etc toooo cold. cold is bad. lack of water is bad.
guess there just isn't a paradise any more.
personally I'd go to south Tennessee / Georgia. hills/valleys give you privacy even if the overall population is moderately dense.

It may be a tad bit bigger than what you are looking for, but I just love Eureka Nevada. Stopped there for breakfast a while back and at least half of folks (mostly real cowboys) in the diner were open carry. It gave me a warm feeling all over.

How about Imlay?

There's lots of real small towns. I really like Lovelock on up through Winnemucca personally. You might look into those places.

My wife & I were married in Reno, in December. Conditions in Reno were:

Severe Clear - 13 degrees F.

1000 feet higher had three feet of snow.

Winds in Nevada mountains can get to hurricane strength without the hurricane.

Not sure what you are looking for, but a small town in Nevada is the opposite of a needle in a haystack.

Gold Seeker,
I used to work all over the state as a consultant to the mining industry. There are many great small towns in the state, most of which are no where near a major road. I would be willing to mention some names, but not broadcast them on the internet. Send me a message.

Pretty much that. Outside of Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada is almost ALL small towns. I recently went through Austin Nevada on a hunt/scout trip, cool little place. Caliente and Alamo are small but close to Vegas. Pioche is a cool place with access to water and trees. One of my favorite locations in the State is up by Jackpot NV. They get good amounts of water, close to the border of Idaho, mountains and wildlife. If you explore off HYW93 in that area you will see it is beautiful country.

Ah forgot about Rachel NV. Very small place with a cafe and gas station and small settlement style town. It's on the alien highway outside of Area 51. It is very dry around there though.

Eureka is a very cool place, old style Nevada for sure. If you take HWY, well it's actually a grated dirt road, but HWY 379 South of Eureka you will go through Duckwater NV. I wouldn't call it a town but people live out there, decent amount of ranches and small communities at least from what I saw from the road. Beautiful country there.
