Family Skiing

Kid-Friendly Spring Break Activities

Reno Tahoe is your ultimate spring break destination with fun for the whole family! Take the family to one of our nearby ski resorts for a fun day on the slopes and let them explore the history of our area. So, sit back, relax and let Reno Tahoe make this a spring break trip you won’t forget.

Snow Much Fun

With the largest concentration of ski resorts in North America, there is no better place to ski and ride than Reno Tahoe. Resorts like Diamond Peak, Northstar California and Mt. Rose are well known for their family-friendly amenities like a variety of terrain, great lesson programs and rental options. So what are you waiting for? Sunshine or snowfall – the weather will be perfect for a day of fun on the mountain.

Midway All the Way

Embrace your inner kid to find delightful fun at the Circus Circus Midway! Recently renovated to incorporate a more whimsical and playful European feel, test your skills with a mix of traditional and modern games like Whac-a-Mole and Pixel Play or the XP Arcade. When energy starts to dwindle, take in the excitement of a real carnival atmosphere during one of their circus shows and midway acts. Compete for the biggest prize… or the biggest smiles.

Adventure in Every Dimension

You want it, they’ve got it! Grand Adventure in the Grand Sierra Resort offers a wide range of go-kart tracks. Whether you want to drift or test your driving skills, every racer is welcome. Don’t just play the game, be in the game.

For an immersive virtual reality experience, check out the Max Action Arena. Try your hand battling zombies or aliens to see if you come out victorious. A unique 5D ride includes the feeling of wind and surround-sound with the capability of over 100 movements a second. Or, test those cognitive skills in the escape room Break Through and the immersive experience, Sensology, to find out who in the family has the quick-thinking power to find freedom.

Discover and Learn

Learn more about the world around us and the region’s history at one of the museums in the Reno area. Spend a day at the Discovery with your kids experiencing art and science galleries and exhibitions. Climb indoor structures or work the brain muscles exploring all the different rooms. It’s easy to lose track of time in the fun of learning. The Nevada State Museum in Carson City has permanent and rotating exhibits and galleries. Travel through time with the little ones and see one-of-a-kind vehicles at the National Automobile Museum.

Go Wild, Island-Style

This family adventure park in Sparks brings out the fun competitive nature of every member of the family. No guts no glory. At Wild Island, you can go head-to-head in blacklight go-karts or try out those spy moves in a game of laser tag. Looking for more skill than speed? See who can rack up the most points in bowling, blacklight miniature golf or arcade games. The memories made and laughter shared promise to make this the spring break the whole family loves.
