If it’s better to give than receive, you might as well enjoy that gift too. This holiday season, consider giving an experience you and your loved one can both appreciate! In Reno Tahoe, you’ll find experiences from outdoor activities, breweries, arts and culture and more that will create memories to last a lifetime. Drop that wrapping paper and tape (you weren’t going to wrap that present until Christmas Eve anyhow), and experience something great in Reno Tahoe!
You’ll find an abundance of public art the heart of downtown or Midtown, so grab lunch and a cup of coffee and take in the sights on a self-guided mural tour. While you’re exploring, make sure to not miss Reno’s Neon Line, the city’s newest art district located on 4th Street. For the car and history lover, there’s the National Automobile Museum, featuring several cars from Bill Harrah’s famous collection. The Nevada Museum of Art is another treasure that makes a perfect experiential gift for the art lover on your list. The museum is home to several permanent collections, as well as special exhibits throughout the year.
So you’ve got a special someone who is almost always there when you drink. If you drink, they drink, it’s just the drinking buddy rule. Lucky for you both, Reno Tahoe is home to several breweries and each offers something unique, from their selection of beer to their ambiance. You might choose to grab a couple of gift cards or plan your own bar crawl around town, sampling a few local favorites. Either way, we invite you to check out our Reno Tahoe Brewery Map to get started.
There’s nothing like an outdoor adventure surrounded by the blue waters and snow-capped mountains of Lake Tahoe. Get outside together and enjoy the adventures this region has to offer! Visit a Reno Tahoe ski resort for a day on the slopes. These world-class resorts offer lessons for beginners to some of the steepest, most advanced terrain on the West Coast. For some full-throttle fun, take an exhilarating ride to some of the best views of Lake Tahoe on a snowmobile! A number of snowmobiling tours will take you on the adventure of a lifetime up in the Sierra Mountains. If cruising through a winter wonderland via a slightly quieter mode of transportation is more their speed, consider a dog sledding tour – something they’re sure to remember for years to come!
A little friendly competition never hurt anybody. Give your friend a reason to turn up their competitive edge and you can bet they’ll have a good time! Channel your inner Paul Bunyan at Reno Axe in downtown. Place some friendly wagers and see who is better at wielding an axe. For an out-of-this-world good time, check out the virtual reality experiences at Max Action Arena, inside Grand Sierra Resort, where you can battle zombies and explore alien worlds. Get your heart pounding in a race to the top of the world’s tallest outdoor climbing wall at Whitney Peak Hotel for a birds-eye view of downtown Reno and beyond.
