Trips are always better with friends, especially furry ones.
Does your favorite travel companion have fur? Then get ready for this itinerary that includes plenty of dog-friendly stops in Reno Tahoe, courtesy of outdoor lover Arielle Shipe and her faithful companion, Tabor.
More than 300 days of sunshine and easy access to the outdoors, combined with plenty of pet-friendly hotels and dining options makes Reno Tahoe the ideal vacation spot for dog lovers!
There’s no need to skimp on amenities when you and your dog travel to Reno. Downtown hotels such as Renaissance Reno Downtown offer not only pet-friendly rooms but dining options as well. At The Shore Room, with its outdoor patio overlooking the Truckee River, you and your pup can enjoy the fresh air, amazing views and great food.
Navigating a new city with your dog doesn’t have to be challenging. The Renaissance Reno Downtown is conveniently located along the Riverwalk, giving you easy access to the Truckee River, parks and other dog-friendly spots such as The Eddy and Wild River Grille.
No matter which direction you head from downtown Reno, miles of trails are waiting to be explored. From wide-open desert spaces to hikes through the trees, there is no shortage of options when it comes to exploring the outdoors. Mt. Rose trail is a popular destination and it’s easy to see why, with its meadows, waterfalls and views of Lake Tahoe, Washoe Valley and Reno. Just west of Mt. Rose trail is Tahoe Meadows, where trails take you through the meadow and into the pine trees, with plenty of opportunities to find views overlooking Lake Tahoe. Most trails in Reno Tahoe are dog-friendly, and many allow well-behaved dogs off-leash.
Some say you did it for the ‘gram, but who cares? You still did it! So go ahead, get that Reno Arch photo (either from street level or from the top of Whitney Peak’s climbing wall), find the perfect post-storm sunset spot or snag a selfie with your furry BFF!
