Exploring Reno: The City’s Highlights

Reno is more than just a casino town; it’s a city brimming with arts, culture, and history.

For a bit of history, the National Automobile Museum is a must-see, featuring over 200 vintage cars.

The Truckee River Walk offers a peaceful escape with scenic views and pleasant strolls along the river. If you’re into performing arts, catch a show at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts. The Midtown District is another vibrant area filled with eclectic shops, trendy eateries, and street art, making it a perfect spot to wander and soak in the local vibe.
