Reno has seen unprecedented growth thanks to the number of businesses and large companies moving into the area. This means more business travelers are using extended housing in Reno or looking for month to month rentals. Luckily for travelers, the Biggest Little City is an awesome place to stay if you’re looking for outdoor activities in the summer!
Here are a few of the best activities to check out during your stay in Reno:
During your extended stay, you’re likely working much of the time. This makes hiking a perfect activity for you! The number of hiking trails within a 15-minute drive from downtown Reno makes this one of the country’s best areas for beautiful summer hiking. While Northern Nevada gets quite hot during the summer months, you’ll quickly cool off again as you go up in elevation in the mountains.
If you’re considering making Reno your permanent home in the future, explore more of the Reno culture at Artown, which is a month-long event chock full of workshops and exhibits to see and shop for local art pieces. Another option is the Art Walk, which gives you a chance to explore the funky murals and artistic vibe of Midtown as you take in the beautiful river scenery and stop in at one of the newest restaurants in town.
If during your extended stay in Reno you find a weekend with a bit of free time, there’s nothing better than relaxing on Lake Tahoe during the summer. Escape the hot Reno area as you venture further south to the lake. Expect a temperature drop of 10-15 degrees compared to the weather in Reno. Check out several of the beaches around the lake or if you enjoy being on the water, look into a paddleboat tour or a rental company to adventure out further on your own.
The growth of business in Reno has also brought in a flood of new restaurants to the area. Take a break to explore a few of the area’s best restaurants. Feeling like some authentic and mouth watering Mexican food? Then you’ll love the menu at Chihuahua’s Cantina and Grill! You’ll find hip bars with outdoor patios in the Midtown area and fine-dining options in South Reno. Two of our favorite recommendations for high-quality dishes and service are the Grill at Quail Corners and Centro South, which recently opened in the luxurious Village at Rancharrah shopping center!
Reno’s growth has led the city to an exciting, changing landscape! Be sure to take the time to get to know the area while on your extended stay in Reno. Not sure which activities you’d like to do?

If you’ve ever had to stay in corporate temporary housing, you’ll understand the feeling of living in an apartment or condo that simply doesn’t feel like home. While it’s better than staying in a hotel for an extended period of time, corporate housing rentals often feel very unfamiliar. And even if your corporate housing company makes your temporary home more comfortable with a cozy bed and nice sheets, it still won’t have that “at-home” feel. Here are some easy and affordable ways you can turn your temporary living situation into a home during your stay.
Learning how to make corporate housing feel like a real home requires you to treat it with care. Leaving your belongings closed up in a suitcase on the floor of your corporate living space doesn’t necessarily exude the essence of home. In order to really feel like you’re at home, your clothes and bathroom supplies should be in their natural spots. So, unpack those bags, put your belongings away, and settle into your home away from home.
Although your corporate housing company will provide soft, high-quality linens and towels, having your own sheets and towels can help you feel more pleasant in your temporary living situation. We totally understand that everyone has a unique style and prefers different things. Bring your coziest sheets and throw pillows, or change up the shower curtains and towels for a more personalized experience.
Dining out daily and having a trash can full of empty fast-food containers will only make you feel like you’re staying in a hotel. One of the benefits of using a corporate housing company as opposed to staying in a hotel is the full kitchen they provide you with. Using the kitchen in your temporary home will not only save you money on eating out for every meal, but it’ll make you feel like you’re cooking a homemade meal like you would do on any given night.
Sometimes we miss the smallest things about our home when we’re away, like having your favorite mug to enjoy your morning coffee in or putting on your most comfortable slippers. Having these items with you can help you feel like you’re at home, even when you’re miles and miles away. You can also give your corporate finished apartment the essence of home with a familiar-smelling candle or air freshener.
Maintaining your usual routine can help make the transition of not being at home less uncomfortable. Having at least some consistency while you’re away will help you adjust to your new surroundings and feel more at home while you’re in a new place. And as you continue your normal routine, the feeling of being away from home will get easier.
Personalizing your corporate housing rental with your favorite books, pictures, artwork, or even small knick knacks for display can help remind you of home. Having these familiar items around can alleviate the homesickness you might feel while being away.
If you know you’re going to miss your loved ones back home, bring pictures of them with you. It’s nice to have a familiar face around in a new place, even if it’s only printed on paper.
Not only are houseplants a great way to add some life to a room and improve your air quality, but they can also have positive effects on your mind. Plants have been scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety and lift your mood. Placing a small or medium-sized indoor plant on a table or countertop is easy and can add a personal touch to your new living space.
Exploring the new area will not only give you something to do in your spare time, but will help you enjoy your temporary home. This can be especially important if you’re planning on taking the next step of relocating.
Get to know the ins and outs of the Biggest Little City, find your new favorite Midtown or South Reno restaurant, or just enjoy the adventure of a new place. Getting to experience the city around you can also make your extended stay more fun and seem less like a business trip.
Ask your corporate housing company about their favorite places or some fun things to do while you stay with them.

Reno has hosted several wine walks and beer crawls over the years, but this is the year we move on to champagne. That’s right, 2022 is the first year that Reno is hosting a Mimosa Crawl—as popularly requested by the locals. Just like previous crawls, your ticket in is the purchase of a reusable cup which can be purchased online here, or in person at Junkee Clothing Exchange. The crawl begins at noon on April 9th starting at The Eddy. All cups purchased online will be held at The Eddy and can be picked up on the day of the event.
A total of 10 restaurants and bars will be participating in the crawl including 5 Star Saloon, The Eddy, The Arch, Hookava, Masque, The Office, Playfield 76, Silver Peak (On the River), The Stick, and Virginia Street Brewhouse.
This Reno April event is for the kids, but don’t worry, adults are welcome too! Held at the Reno Idlewild Park on April 9th will be a community Easter egg hunt that is free for children under the age of 12 to join. This event is held by the Washoe CASA Foundation along with 20 other local child advocacy organizations as part of National Child Abuse Protection Month. The Easter egg hunt will start at 10 AM on April 9th at Rancho San Rafael Park. For children with sensory sensitivities, a separate, quieter egg hunt will happen at the same location just an hour earlier at 9 AM. We look forward to seeing you there!
Are you a jazz fan? If so, UNR’s got the event of the year in store for you! Come celebrate all things jazz at one of the world’s largest jazz festivals—The Reno Jazz Festival. From concerts to competitions, this festival features professional bands and over 350 school groups. This year’s guests include Michael Mayo and The Collective, Miguel Zenón Quartet, Annie Booth, and a variety of jazz workshops and jam sessions.
Genoa Western Heritage Days is a time to enjoy classic Western music, delicious food, Civil War reenactments, Native American demonstrations, Chautauqua performances, and cowboy poetry readings. Children’s activities geared towards education will also be available and a progressive dinner at local restaurants is included. This cultural event not only gives a bit of historical insight into the little town of Genoa but is also a fun community event cherished by locals. Evening entertainment includes a concert performance from Mary Kaye Holt, Gary Allegretto & Chris Isaacs.
The world-famous Virginia City Grand Prix is gearing up for April!

Are you becoming tired of the monotony of everyday life? Are you ready for an adventure? Then come check out The Biggest Little City in the World—Reno, Nevada, in our family extended stay housing!
Reno is called The Biggest Little City, and for a good reason. Reno has all the attractions and opportunities as a big city but still has that small-town friendly feel. From the picturesque Sierra Nevada mountains to the bright lights of downtown, you’re sure to find something the whole family will love.
The Reno Air Races have been an attraction in Reno since 1964 with aviation enthusiasts from all over the world to share their excitement for everything aviation. They host several races as well as stunt performances and demonstrations.
The Nevada Museum of Art is the only museum in Nevada that is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, and it is located in the heart of downtown Reno. The museum and its exhibits have been shaped over the years of the environment it came from: the mountains, desert, and Bay Area. One of the most prominent exhibits is the Seven Magic Mountains.
The Reno Riverwalk District is the premier area to support Reno local businesses. The Riverwalk runs through downtown on the Truckee River with a great selection of shops, bars, and restaurants. It has been continually “beautified” over the years and strives to celebrate Reno’s culture and art.
Reno may not be as extravagant as Vegas, but the quality is evident. The Row is compiled of three different hotels in downtown Reno. The Eldorado—where luxury is taken to a whole new level—Circus Circus—where you can experience a little circus flare—and the Silver Legacy—where entertainment is the number one priority. These three hotels offer 25 restaurants, 23 bars, and 11 clubs where you can experience all that Reno has to offer.
Just a half-hour away from Reno is Lake Tahoe—one of the most beautiful lakes that attract tourists from all over the world. It’s known for its crystal clear waters and year-round snow-capped mountains.
If you’re looking for an adventure, check out Parasail Tahoe. With three locations around the lake, they are the premier choice for water activities, including parasailing and watercraft rentals.
On the north shore, Tahoe City Kayak Rentals can provide kayak and paddleboard rentals, tours, and sales. Take out a kayak or paddleboard on the lake or the river for new discoveries!
Suppose you’re looking for something a little off the beaten path, the Tahoe Rim Trail hiking trail loops around the lake for 170 miles with some of the best views in the area. You do not need a permit except in the Desolation Wilderness in South Lake.
If you’re looking for a fun, relaxing day on the river, look no further! Truckee River Raft Company sets you off on your boat for some leisurely fun on the Truckee River between Tahoe City and Alpine Meadows. Fun for all ages!
This town just outside of Reno is where some of the last real cowboys live. The wild west is still alive in Virginia City. From the Comstock Lode in the 1800s until the present day, there is still a rich atmosphere in this old mining town.
Featured on Ghost Adventures, the old Washoe Club in Virginia City is one of the world's most haunted places. Come by for a tour, an overnight stay, or just to take a look!
The Red Dog Saloon has been around Virginia City since the 1800s but is still as alive as it once was. As one of the most historic sites in Virginia City, it hosts live performances and open mic nights.
This is perfect if you want to learn about the history of Virginia City. The Virginia City Trolley is a 2.5 mile 20 minute narrated trolley tour that walks you through all of the historical landmarks and rich history.
Just 36 minutes outside of Reno is the beautiful town of Truckee. Over the years, Truckee has become a hot-spot for outdoor enthusiasts and tourists alike. While visiting Truckee, make sure to check out the following attractions:
Truckee’s location makes it one of the best ski towns worldwide with access to dozens of ski resorts around the lake. Just outside of Truckee is Northstar Resort, Tahoe Donner, and Sugar Bowl Resort. While these resorts are home to exceptional skiing, it hosts a number of other attractions such as an ice skating rink, live performances, holiday celebrations, and mountain biking in the summer.
Downtown Truckee is known for its great atmosphere and lively feeling. Also, during the summer, downtown Truckee hosts Truckee Thursdays. It’s a weekly celebration that features local food trucks, artisans, and musicians. Foodies, history buffs, and music lovers all alike will find something to love in this town!

Moving to a new city can be pretty tough, and when you’re bringing your family too, the change can be overwhelming. Family corporate stay doesn’t have to be a hassle when you’re staying in a great city. Here’s why relocating to Reno is perfect for you and your family.
Relocating to a new school is a big shake-up for the whole family. As parents, we want our children to continue to receive a quality education, no matter where they live. And our kids (although they might not say it directly) want to have a great school experience. Luckily, with Reno, you don’t have to worry.
A study in 2016 by US News & World Report ranked 28,000 public high schools across the U.S. Fifteen Nevadan schools made the top 10%. Furthermore, two Reno public high schools took the first and second spots as the best schools in all of Nevada. There are plenty of public school options for children of all ages.
Every kid is a little bundle of energy. As parents, we know the value of being able to let our kids run around outside. Not only is it great exercise, but it also gives us time to ourselves (let’s be honest, we all wouldn’t mind that, right?).
If you’re from California, you might be excited to live in an area with snowy winters. Reno can get quite snowy in the winter. Luckily, the snow never gets too severe to manage. If you want more snow, Tahoe is right in your backyard. In Tahoe, when the winter season kicks in, so does ski season. Take your family up to Tahoe for a day of skiing at popular ski resorts such as Squaw Valley or Heavenly. If skiing and snowboarding aren't your speed, you can just find a nice hill for some family sledding.
The Reno area averages around 300 days of sunshine! That’s pretty incredible, right? You can take your kids outside all year-round for some great outdoor time. Furthermore, you’ll come to enjoy staying inside with your family on those handful of cloudy days.
The biggest perk of temporary housing in Reno is that you have one of the best vacation spots in the whole western U.S. right in your backyard. Lake Tahoe is home to a full spectrum of activities to spend with your family on your off-days. You and your family can enjoy the crystal blue lake, golden beaches, and panoramic mountain views in any way you’d like, whether it be hiking, swimming, boating, or exploring!
There are also plenty of other hidden lakes and hiking trails throughout Tahoe to find. You and your family will have an endless amount of discoveries to make.
Reno is full of an incredible amount of events and festivals. And while a large amount of Reno events are geared towards adults (you didn’t know you wanted a pirate-themed beer crawl till now, did you?), there are plenty of family-friendly events as well.
The Reno Rodeo, Best in the West Rib Cook-Off, and the Reno Balloon Race are merely a few examples of the vast range of family events Reno hosts every month. My little Nora's favorite event is the Reno Balloon Race, and you bet she asks about every month when it's happening.
