Come Along for the Ride

Sip, shop and explore Reno and Tahoe on two wheels

Cityscapes to Lakeviews

What do you get when the urban jungle is just a hop, skip and a jump from the largest alpine lake in North America? A day filled with endless possibilities. Let’s see what travel photographers Aly Nicklas and Alisa Geiser have in store, from the city streets of Reno to the trails and clear water of Lake Tahoe.

Less daylight during Reno Tahoe’s fall and winter months doesn’t mean you can’t pack your waking hours with plenty of good times. Set your alarm early and get started on that wanna-do list. These two adventure-seeking travel photographers get a taste of everything Reno Tahoe has to offer when they tag along with a couple of seasoned locals. No matter if you love the concrete jungle or fresh mountain air (or both), there’s something to tickle your fancy in their Reno Tahoe itinerary.
