Experience history, art, architecture and culture along the famed Truckee River Corridor. Walk the paths of pioneer wagons that crossed the Truckee Meadows in the late 1840s. See hidden neighborhood treasures, landmark trees and architectural gems from mansions on the bluff to brick bungalows in Reno's little Italy. Most tours begin at the Riverside Artist Lofts located on the corner of the Truckee River & Virginia Street. Tours last about one hour and 45 minutes.
