Winnemucca is a great place to live, as well as work. Our local economy is largely supported by the Gold Mining, Manufacturing, Ranching and Farming Industries.
Winnemucca is the best place to get that small-town feel, while still enjoying the big-city luxuries such as our restaurants, shopping, and 24/7 Casinos. Many businesses revolve around the Mining schedule, so they open early and close late, if not 24/7.
If you’re looking for the perfect blend of all four seasons, Winnemucca is the place to be! The region has a mild high desert climate, 225 days of sunshine per year, warm days in the summer moderated by the cool summer nights. Winters are easy, with an average of only 53 days per year that the temperature drops below freezing.
Winnemucca is surrounded by vast, unpopulated lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management. What does miles and miles of desert mean? The opportunity for nearly unlimited access to explore, sightsee, hunt, fish, and pretty much anything else that fancies you.
