Greater Nevada Field#8 in Best Things To Do in Reno
Looking for another opportunity to break away from the casino and enjoy some fresh Reno air? Consider paying a visit to Greater Nevada Field, home to the city's minor league team – the Triple-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Reno Aces. While the park doesn't offer skyline views, it does boast a stellar vantage point of the surrounding mountain range. Aside from its location along the Truckee River, the ballpark received praise from recent visitors for its cleanliness and variety of concession food. During the offseason, the city offers ice skating from November through February at a skating rink set up in the plaza in front of the ballpark.
Game tickets vary in price, depending on where you choose to sit and the opponent. The ballpark doesn't have its own parking garage, but there are 20 downtown nearby lots within walking distance of the park.

Downtown Reno's updated Riverwalk area – located along the Truckee River between Arlington Avenue and Lake Street – draws art lovers and gourmands alike with its collection of galleries and restaurants. You'll find most of these up-and-coming establishments lining the southern end, which residents have come to refer to as CalAve. And if you're not sure where to begin, tag along on a Wine Walk. This event – hosted by the Riverwalk Merchants Association for $20 per person — takes place the third Saturday of the month from 2 to 5 p.m. and includes wine tastings at more than a dozen galleries and specialty stores.
Recent visitors frequently described this area as a clean, pleasant reprieve from the casinos (especially during the fall and spring) and highly recommend it for those traveling with kids.
