All-Ages Entertainment at Casino Hotel near Downtown Reno
Reno is one of the country's top destinations for instant gratification. Here you'll find trendy nightclubs, live shows, 24-hour casinos, and lightning-fast wedding chapels. Although most of it caters to the 21-and-older crowd, Grand Sierra Resort & Casino—located just minutes from the action—has attractions for both adults and children. Frommer’s called the stylish resort "a destination in itself" for its 80,000-square-foot casino, a 24-hour bowling alley, and an outdoor thrill park.
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 Grand Adventure Land. There, you can bungee jump from a 185-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. The complex also has seven on-site casual restaurants, including Element Buffet and Cantina.
Reno, NV: Casino City with Arts and Outdoor Adventure
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 at the big gaming palaces such as Circus Circus and Harrah's (which was born here), 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.
