Know the Popular Travel Seasons

When planning your trip to the Biggest Little City, it’s best to start shopping flights early to get the best price, especially if you are traveling to Reno during the summer or winter months, which tend to be the most popular times to visit. Flights to Reno can be a bit pricier during the summer months, which is a peak season around here. People from around the country fly in to enjoy sunshine, events and the great outdoors. But the winter months bring in their own sort of crowds, most of them sporting goggle tans and clutching ski or snowboard bags. Regardless of what type of visitor you are, the earlier you shop flights, the better.

Passenger airlines that fly in and out of RNO include Alaska, Allegiant, American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest and United.

RNO is Pretty Great

RNO opened the Connector Collections Gallery in 2005 to celebrate artistic development in Northern Nevada.

When to Visit

Reno is a year-round destination. Choosing when to visit largely depends on what kind of trip you’re into. If you’re looking to experience hiking, camping and swimming, you’ll want to book your flights to Reno in the summer. Reno’s weather starts to really warm up June through August. Summer is prime time to take a dip in Lake Tahoe, embark on early morning hikes or have an unforgettable camping trip in one of the most beautiful forests in the world.

If you’re looking to experience some world-class skiing, then the mid-to-later winter months are best. There are several shuttles that run from Reno to Tahoe ski resorts. For a comprehensive list, check out our Reno Tahoe Ski Shuttles page.

Flights to Lake Tahoe

Flights to Reno and flights to Lake Tahoe have one thing in common, they both end up at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. It’s only an hour-or-so drive to Tahoe, and if you don’t have a car rental, there are plenty of shuttle options.
