Biggest Little City in the World

A sea of casinos in the high desert of the Sierra Nevadas, Reno capitalizes on gaming and nightlife.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to River Rafting & Tubing and Bartley Ranch Regional Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reno: South Lake Tahoe (Kiva Beach & Baldwin Beach) and Burnt Cedar Beach (in Incline Village). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at National Automobile Museum, ride a horse along Reno Rodeo Cattle Drive, have fun at Reno Guns & Range, and stop by Chocolate Nugget Candy Factory.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Reno using our trip planner.
