Reno Skyline with Fall Colors

Satisfy Your Appetite for Autumn – Restaurants With Views of Fall Colors

Fall calls for cozy sweaters and relaxing days spent enjoying the cooler weather and vibrant fall colors as the leaves around Reno Tahoe change to shades of red, orange and yellow. In addition to all of the fall must-dos, the season wouldn’t be complete without a stop at at least one of the area restaurants offering views of the changing scenery. Warm up with a cup of coffee and a baked treat, toast with friends over a glass of wine, or satisfy your hunger at one of the fine dining spots… or all of the above!
