Known as “The Biggest Little City”, Reno is a good destination for the diverse traveler. Reno is located right at the base of the Sierra Nevada on the California/Nevada border, neighboring Lake Tahoe and miles of beautiful national forests. This is a great starting location for anyone looking to start a vacation through these national treasures, one last city to see before indulging in nature's getaway.
For those who are less concerned with Reno's proximity to Tahoe, there are still lots of attractions within the little city. A mini Las Vegas, Reno has a plethora of gambling and 24-hour nightlife. You can play all day at one of the city's dozens of golf courses, and still come back to a good time. From tables to slots to shows, Reno offers you a gaming atmosphere without all the hype of Sin City.
The weather in Reno is quite hot, averaging over 300 days of sun a year. But it's not all sunshine; the city also has a variety of ski resorts, making it a great winter destination as well.
