Channel Your Inner Cowboy... or girl

The Wild Wild West has left a permanent mark on Virginia City, making this authentic gold rush town a favorite summer day trip from Reno Tahoe. Be sure to sip a Bloody Mary at the Bucket of Blood Saloon (named for what the janitor ended up with after a rowdy evening in the 1870s)!

Bowled Over

Bowling is a fun sport for anyone, but with thousands of men and women from all over the country competing at downtown's National Bowling Stadium, and in Hall 5 of the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, through June 30, it's a great time to pick up some free pointers and search for some new gear.
