Reno, Nevada: Casino City with Arts and Outdoor Adventure
The town of Sparks is located just east of Reno, situated at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Sparks’s downtown (known as Victorian Square) hosts a variety of events, including farmers’ markets, a rib cook-off, and Hot August Nights, a celebration of retro cars and ’50s and ’60s rock ‘n’ roll. Head down to the Sparks Marina to swim, boat, fish, scuba dive, or picnic along the 80-acre body of water.
Nearby, Reno lives up to its billing as “The Biggest Little City in the World" thanks to its flashy casinos, cultural centers, and restaurants worthy of a much larger metropolis, all packed together on Virginia Street. If you need a break from courting Lady Luck, head to the Truckee River Arts District to explore the Nevada Museum of Art and the National Automobile Museum. Because of its location at the foot of the Sierra Nevada and just east of Tahoe National Forest, the city also puts visitors within reach of rushing rivers and high mountain ranges for hiking, rafting, and gold-rush reenacting.
