Classic Casino Resort in “The Biggest Little City in the World”
No one enters Reno’s casino strip without passing under the town’s most famous landmark, a neon arch that reads “Reno—The Biggest Little City in the World.” Right beside the city’s iconic sign, the palatial Harrah’s Reno blends into the retro town center, brightened by grand marquees and flashing lights. But Harrah’s visitors looking to explore Reno’s world-class gaming, restaurants, and nightlife don’t even need to leave the complex, as it’s home to seven onsite restaurants, a spa, a concert hall, and a 60,000-square-foot casino floor. In a town known for its casinos, Harrah's Reno has assembled every game a gaming lover could ever want—blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker tournaments Thursday–Monday, keno, horserace betting, and weekend beer-pong tournaments.
At the 24-hour casino, more than 900 slot machines chirp and buzz on the gaming floor, with novelty slots such as Sex and the City , Star Trek, and Wheel of Fortune. Seven onsite restaurants cater to diners, whether they seek a quick stop at the buffet or fine dining at Harrah’s Steak House. After dinner, head over to the Sapphire Lounge for dancing, trivia, or karaoke. Throughout the year, Harrah’s hosts world-class entertainment, ranging from music performances from Brad Paisley and Elton John to mixed-martial-arts fights and nationally televised thumb wars.
Reno: Casino City with Arts and Outdoor Adventure
Reno lives up to its billing as "The Biggest Little City in the World" with museums, public art displays, cultural centers, and restaurants worthy of a metropolis, all packed together on Virginia Street. Explore the Truckee River Arts District, home to the Nevada Museum of Art and the National Automobile Museum. Because of its location just east of Tahoe National Forest, visitors can also enjoy visiting the forest’s rushing rivers and high mountain ranges for hiking, rafting, and gold-rush reenacting.
