With the highest concentration of ski resorts in North America, there is naturally great skiing and boarding. The Truckee River flows from Lake Tahoe through the heart of Reno and Sparks, creating outdoor activities from kayaking and whitewater rafting, to a leisurely day of fishing or tubing along the Reno Riverwalk.
World-class spas and restaurants tempt, amidst a regular lineup of nightly entertainment and touring musicians. Many craft coffee shops, eateries and brewpubs feature local fare, promising to send you home without fear of thirst nor hunger. And with nearly 300 days of events, there’s almost always something special going on throughout the destination.
