Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 6, at 2 a.m. It’s the magical time when you get a precious gift from Father Time, an extra hour to do anything you want… or sleep an extra hour. Here in Reno Tahoe, a 24-hour city with adventure around every corner, we have plenty of ideas on what to do during the Fall Back extra hour.
Reno Tahoe has more than 300 days of sunshine each year and endless options when it comes to outdoor activities, so heading outside is a must when you’re visiting. Schedule a horseback ride through some of the thousands of acres of public lands begging to be explored. Not much of a rider? No need to worry, there are plenty of other activities for you and your friends to experience. Enjoy the cooler weather and vibrant colors on hiking or biking trails around Reno and Tahoe, or take a walk through one of our many parks.
Hungry? Your extra hour might be the best time to discover the delicious food Reno Tahoe has to offer. Cozy up next to a fire pit and take in views of the Truckee River at The Shore. Their Mediterranean-inspired menu has lunch and dinner offerings, as well as great happy hour specials. Use your extra time and take a trip up to Tahoe to try out the Lone Eagle Grille. Their signature Duncan Ranch Elk Strip Loin and Grilled Ōra King Salmon Roulade are sure to leave you satisfied.
Now that you have an extra hour, it means you can also sample some of the many breweries in Reno Tahoe! Good luck choosing a favorite out of the several local craft beers and spirits available to treat your taste buds. Try a range of ales from heavily hopped to fruited sours at Lead Dog Brewing. Or stop by IMBIB Custom Brews to try experimental-style hazies, pales ales and dry-hopped beers. Don’t stop there, our brewery map has even more options to quench your thirst.
What better time to recharge than when you have an extra hour to do it? Reno Tahoe has a variety of luxurious spas where you can treat yourself to a massage or facial (or both!) and then spend the day lounging and relaxing. If it’s something more adventurous you seek, explore one of the many Nevada hot springs, from hot spring resorts to remote locations, nothing eases away tension like a soak in a natural hot spring.
Reno Tahoe is a culturally vibrant region and a true arts destination with plenty of hidden gems to be discovered. Spend your extra hour wandering through exhibits at Nevada Museum of Art, the only nationally accredited museum in the state. Or check out The Discovery to inspire your curiosity in STEAM learning. Take a leisurely stroll around town and use this comprehensive Public Art map to find locally-made artwork pieces or larger-than-life murals.
