You will not regret your move! There are really no bad areas around here, though some are a little further ... or steeper.
Depending on what you are looking for there are several things to consider: price range, are you comfortable driving in the snow, will you need access to the highway, do you prefer a woodsy feel or a town feel etc.
I have descriptions of all the neighborhoods on my website: http://www.charmingcabins.com/truckee/
(click on link below), you will also see all the real estate available for sale at the bottom of the page for Truckee, so you can get an idea of neighborhoods, but here are some of the neighborhoods in short:
Tahoe Donner: up a very steep hill, so difficult winter driving, though beautiful and serene - variety of price points available and HOA amenities
Sierra Meadows: very popular with locals, close to town, HOA and pool, level access, little more expensive
Prosser: popular with the locals, woodsy feel, level access, little further from town, but close to a pond
Armstrong tract: close to school, up a hill though not as steep as Tahoe Donner, some views of Donner Lake.
Donner Lake: popular with vacationers, some highway noise, Donner Lake at your doorstep, older homes for the most part.
Down town: very close to shopping and dining, some highway noise, Victorian homes subject to architectural review, small lots.
Glenshire/Devonshire: Few miles from Truckee, level access, easy access to Reno, HOA with pool, more value for money, some horse properties.
