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.
Reno Air Racing Association
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.
Nevada Museum of Art
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.
Reno Riverwalk District
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!
Tahoe Rim Trail
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!
