Little has changed from the time when Reno became the birthplace of Nevada gambling. People remain pressed around the tables in casinos and that sweeping arch still spans the main drag proclaiming Reno “the biggest little city in the world.” But there’s more to Reno than gambling and entertainment. History still streaks this town like veins of gold through hard granite. Relive the area’s wild gold-mining days with a trip to old Virginia City.
For the nature lover in your group, there’s plenty of recreation. From hiking in the Sierra Nevadas to skiing at Lake Tahoe. In fact, there’s a little something for everyone in Reno. While nature lovers are out traipsing around in the desert, those who want to stay cool, can do so in the air-conditioned halls of the National Automobile Museum. This unique museum features vintage cars in authentic street settings.
Come discover more of this town’s wild past and claim some memories for your future.
