The medium-sized city of Fernley
is situated in a valley close to the Truckee River
, 20 miles downstream (south) of Pyramid Lake
, a beautiful expanse of water with stark, desert surroundings. I-80 runs past a short distance north of town, the next nearest places being Reno
30 miles west and Winnemucca
134 miles northeast. One other water-based attraction nearby is Lahontan State Recreation Area
, a large reservoir 16 miles south along alt US 50.
Hotels, shops and restaurants are concentrated around Fernley's two interstate exits, the main location being on the east side, where stores include Lowe's and Wal-Mart.
