Why Visit Reno
Recent years have brought changes to Reno. While casinos remain a draw, the city has found its groove as a locals-pleasing playground that welcomes visitors. This new Reno features kid-friendly attractions, nature, good food, and affordability that attracts creative people.
When to Visit Reno
Visit Reno in winter and you’ll be close to Lake Tahoe and some of the Sierra's best winter recreation. From late spring through early fall, annual events offer even more reasons to visit Reno. Festivals are frequent, including the Reno River Festival and the Great Reno Balloon Race.
Good winters bring plenty of snow to Tahoe and a faster-melting dusting to Reno. Reno gets minimal rain most years, with an average of an inch in the wettest winter months. Summers are hot and sometimes windy in Reno. The humidity is low year-round, so it’s important to hydrate.
