One hour's drive east of Reno, Fallon is a relatively large town centered on the junction of US 95 and US 50, surrounded by one of the few major agricultural regions of Nevada, irrigated using water from the Carson River, which terminates a few miles south at the Carson Sink and also sustains the wetlands of Fallon National Wildlife Refuge to the northeast. The surroundings are quite flat, part of the vast Lahontan Valley, and include several dry lake beds, one occupied by the main unit of Fallon Naval Air Station. Also in the vicinity, Lahontan State Recreation Area contains a large artificial lake, popular for boating, fishing, water skiing and camping.
Supermarkets, restaurants and hotels are concentrated along the western approach to Fallon, US 50 from Carson City.
