All-Ages Entertainment at Swanky Casino Hotel near Downtown Reno
Reno is one of the country's top destinations for instant gratification. Throughout the city, you'll find trendy nightclubs, live shows, 24-hour casinos, and lightning-fast wedding chapels. Although most of it caters to the 21-or-older crowd, Grand Sierra Resort & Casino—located just minutes from the action—is packed with attractions for both adults and children. With an 80,000-square-foot casino, a 24-hour bowling alley, and an outdoor thrill park, it's easy to see why Frommer’s called the stylish resort "a destination in itself."
Multimillion-dollar renovations have kept Grand Sierra Resort hip and luxurious. The casino holds nearly 50 table games as well as slot machines, weekly video-poker tournaments, and high-stakes, no-limit crazy eights. If you're traveling with kids, you'll find all-ages fun right outside at the resort's Ultimate Rush Thrill Park. There, you can bungee jump from a 175-foot tower or strap into bumper cars and go-karts for earthbound thrills.
For dinner, grilled pacific salmon and blue-cheese-crusted top sirloin are served at Charlie Palmer Steak; Briscola's upscale pasta dishes include baked ziti made by hand on site.
Reno: Nonstop Nightlife and Gold-Rush History
At the entrance to Reno's gambling strip, you can't miss the famous glittering arch proclaiming Reno the "Biggest Little City in the World." The nickname fits. Once a stopover for prospectors en route to the California Gold Rush, the city still has the attitude of an Old West outpost. The banks of the Truckee River, where westbound settlers once set up camp, are today home to the Truckee Riverwalk and Arts District. The pretty walkway affords a nice escape from the hectic atmosphere of the strip—you’ll find galleries, artsy boutiques, and antique stores stocked with horse-drawn roulette wheels. For outdoor enthusiasts, the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the west have plenty of hiking trails, and the Truckee River is a popular site for kayaking and whitewater rafting.
