#1 Reno's Riverwalk
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.
