As the former largest city of Nevada and the former gambling capital of the United States, it's no surprise that Reno's rich past is shrouded in mystery. Janice, a paranormal investigator and tour guide who has authored numerous books about Nevada's hauntings and history, details the city's dark history and fascinating ghosts during 90-minute Reno's Ghost Walk tours.

On the tours, she tells tales of teenage boys who dredged the Truckee River for gold and size 9 shoes, and talks about a mysterious disappearance that's never been solved, drawing on the knowledge she's obtained living in the city for most of her life.

A chill travels down Virginia City's streets, where it meets a group of unsuspecting men and women on the sidewalk. Maybe it's just the wind. Maybe it's a sudden drop in temperature. Or maybe it's something else?something from another time. After all, the group had followed their tour guide's advice and dressed warm for the Comstock's cool nights. When the guide and group arrive at the Silver Queen Hotel, something else seems a bit off. A large painting of a woman stands before them, her evening gown made of thousands of silver dollars. The group stares into her eyes, and they seem to stare back, as if she knows they're there and that they need more change for the parking meter.

The guides at Bats in the Belfry Ghost Tours specialize in this sort of paranormal activity. Several nights a week, they lead tours up and down Virginia City's streets, stopping to tell spooky stories at old 19th-century buildings, including Mackay Mansion and the Washoe Club Haunted Museum. They also host the occasional special event, such as investigations with ghost hunters.

The year 2013 marks the 30th anniversary of guided rafting tours through the Colorado River's Black Canyon. Created by volcanic activity over the course of millennia, its walls rise more than 2,000 feet above the Colorado River’s edge. Rafters glide between these walls on the company’s assorted rafting tours, which also incorporate visits to sites such as the Hoover Dam or the Techatticup Mine, where they learn about area mining history.

Roaring ATVs charge up Southwest Desert sand dunes in a storm of golden particles. Miles away, intrepid explorers rappel down the sheer cliffs of the Valley of Fire. Elsewhere, kayakers drift across the placid surface of Lake Mead in the sunset, and passengers inside a helicopter witness the majesty of the Grand Canyon from the breathtaking angle normally reserved for sightseeing birds. These seemingly disparate adventures have one thing in common: the people who imagined them. Each trek was dreamed up by the founders and guides of Awesome Adventures, who see the landscape of Nevada and Utah not as harsh and wild, but as a source of endless entertainment and education. The enthusiastic staffers—who specialize in recreations ranging from rock climbing to whitewater rafting—encourage visitors and locals alike to step outside the bounds of the city and explore exciting new vistas.

The nods to music at most thrift stores come in the form of previously owned band T-shirts and old records. But A to Zen Gifts & Thrift isn't most thrift stores. While the shop does carry a rotating assortment of recorded music and a possible surplus of Spinal Tap T-shirts, it treats its customers to something they usually only find at a music venue: live music. Each Friday night, the store transforms into an open-mic hotspot, welcoming local singer-songwriters to a stage flanked by floral couches and vintage Ringling Bros. posters. As the musicians set the soundtrack, shoppers can peruse the racks and shelves for such treasures as plaid overcoats, tie-dyed dresses, yin-yang end tables, and porcelain dolls. The shop also stock custom furniture and myriad books to remind folks of a simpler time when we didn't have book chips installed in our brains.
