Best Things to Do in Reno

The bright neon lights of Reno's casino district have beckoned to gamblers for decades; the noisy slots and green-felt table games at Harrah's and the Eldorado are some of the most popular places to challenge Lady Luck. But there's more to Reno than poker chips. The Biggest Little City is also home to several excellent museums, like the National Automobile Museum and the Nevada Museum of Art. And Reno makes for a great getaway for outdoorsy travelers, because it boasts easy access to the ski slopes of nearby Lake Tahoe. If you want to enjoy the fresh Nevada air without leaving the city, take a stroll along the Truckee River Walk.
