Once you’re here, you’ll understand why Reno Tahoe is home to the moniker, “The Biggest Little City.” From Reno to Sparks, you’ll find all the amenities of a big city, but with the vibe and simple commute of a small town. Many hotels offer shuttle service to and from the airport, and you can also hop in a taxi, Uber or Lyft right outside the airport. Want the freedom to explore on your own once you’re checked in? We don’t blame you. You’ll find a wide selection of rental car companies so you can cruise with the top down or put it in four-wheel drive and hit some back roads.
