to the northeast, beginning a few blocks from US 395 and extending 5 miles along I-80, as far as the foothills of the Pah Rah mountains. The interstate divides the southern, industrial/business section of the city from the larger residential district to the north; most hotels & large stores are found nearby, with a few other shopping centers along Oddie Blvd, McCarran Blvd and Pyramid Way. To the north, this latter street (Hwy 445) soon exits the city, heading along Spanish Springs Valley
and through Mullen Pass to the beautiful but little visited Pyramid Lake
and then eventually to the even more remote landscapes of the Black Rock Desert
. East of Sparks, the next major city along the interstate is Fernley
after 30 miles.
