March 20th began this year’s spring season and it’s safe to say that the majority of us can’t wait for the weather to warm up. Being cooped up at home can take a toll on your mental and physical health which is why it’s more important now than ever to get out and enjoy some fun springtime activities in Reno. Whether you’re an avid outdoor enthusiast or just want to get out of the house to breathe in some fresh air, there’s something for everyone in Reno to do this spring – even those who are staying in short-term housing. So, what do we have happening in the Reno-Tahoe area this spring? Here’s a list of things to do that will keep you busy until the summer hits.
Fun Springtime Activities To Do in Reno
Spring in Reno is full of life and adventure. Not only are people getting out and enjoying the sunshine more frequently since the weather is warming up, but nature is in full bloom now. The Reno-Tahoe area offers many outdoor activities from casual walks around the river to breathtaking hiking trails. Take a look below to check out some of our favorite springtime activities to do in Reno!
Here in Reno, we don’t just have baseball games, we have “Aceball” games. The Reno Aces is our city’s AAA baseball team and the locals are always excited to show their support and attend a game at the Greater Nevada Field. The games are fun for fans of all ages and they even go above your expectations with unique events and promotions like Star Wars Night and Fireworks Friday. You can also enjoy all of your favorite baseball treats such as hot dogs, candied apples, and beer. All you have to do is grab a seat, bring your hat, and have a good time!
Skiing Near Lake Tahoe
Skiing is generally considered a winter sport, but in Reno, Nevada, skiing continues well into the spring season. The resorts are looking to stay open until May – and some even later. There are plenty of ski resorts to choose from including Tahoe Donner, Kirkwood, North Star, and Squaw Valley. Be sure to check out their websites for updated closing dates if you’re interested in planning a trip or hitting the slopes this spring.
Something we all take for granted is the natural beauty that exists around us, and spring is the perfect time to finally take it all in. Reno is fortunate to have the Truckee River run right through it which provides hundreds of serene nature scenes. There are multiple walking and biking trails surrounding the river that offer some of the best views you might come across. Just don’t forget to bring your camera to capture all the beauty that Reno has to offer!
Hunter Creek Hiking Trail
The Hunter Creek Hiking Trail in Reno is probably the city’s most popular hiking spot – and for good reason. Found at the end of this 6-mile trail is a beautiful waterfall that visitors just can’t get enough of. The trail is heavily trafficked by friendly hikers often accompanied by friends and even dogs. Though this trail may be longer than most novice hikers are used to, it’s a relatively easy trek to get through. And with the unique waterfall at the end, you’re guaranteed to be very satisfied with your experience. If you do decide to hunt down this trail and give it a try, be sure to set aside a good portion of your day as this hike can take a while to complete. Also, be sure to bring your sunscreen! Some parts of the trail are shaded by tall trees, but there are many open areas where you’ll be exposed to bright sunlight.
One of Reno’s favorite springtime activities is hitting the greens for a round – or two – of golf. The great thing about golf is you get to enjoy the great outdoors while squeezing in some mild exercise. And the sport is fantastic for men and women of all ages. So, dust off your clubs and start practicing your swing because there are over 50 golf courses to choose from in the Reno-Tahoe area.

Paddleboarding on the Lake
While it may still be too cold to swim in Lake Tahoe, paddleboarding definitely isn’t off-limits. The Lake Tahoe waters are extremely calm and clear during the spring, making it the perfect location for stand-up paddleboarding. Beaches are also less crowded at this time of year which is a rare experience as temperatures start to rise. There are also several shops around the lake that rent paddleboard equipment to visitors, so if you don’t have your own gear, no need to worry.
