Find Your Passion Where the Southwest meets the Northwest, you’ll find a destination with a passion for living — Reno Tahoe USA. With its ideal location at the upper reaches of the Southwest, just below the start of the Northwest, Reno Tahoe offers the best of both regions — a beautiful high desert setting that has more outdoor special events, active sports, world-class spas, breathtaking vistas and sunny days than any other resort area in North America. Even better, you’ll find it all at extremely affordable prices. But don’t just take our word for it. Our area has been showing up on dozens of “Top 10” lists from top magazines and travel resources, thanks to our great weather, upscale resorts, outdoor activities, Lake Tahoe beauty and incredible value. We’ve highlighted some of our favorites within this planner, so dive in and immerse yourself in the beauty, excitement and rip-roaring fun of Reno Tahoe USA.

Reno Tahoe USA Getaway Planner


Diverse Beauty & OUtdoors

Reasons to get away from it all Winter. Spring. Summer. Fall. We love each of them with an equal measure of passion. And with the area’s 300 days of sunshine a year, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make the most of each season. For you winter worshippers, we boast the largest concentration of ski resorts in all of North America, plus an après-ski tradition as legendary as the slopes themselves. Whatever your tool for carving up the mountain — ski, board, snowshoe, snowmobile, sleigh or tube — Reno Tahoe USA has the perfect terrain for you. When the white stuff melts away, that’s the perfect time to dust off your hiking boots, pack a summit picnic and climb to the top of 10,776-foot Mount Rose. Another way to conquer the great outdoors? Rent a mountain bike or bring your own and take on the Flume Trail, arguably the most stunning bike ride on the planet. If you love to fish, grab your reel and claim your own piece of paradise on the stunningly beautiful Truckee River (it’s especially gorgeous during autumn when

Diverse Beauty & Outdoors

boulder to boulder over pristine blue-green Tahoe waters or relaxing barefoot on a blanket in downtown’s Wingfield Park as you listen to reggae on the river, you’ll find it all in Reno Tahoe USA. By land, sea or air, our great outdoors is greater than most. Ready for a boost of adrenaline? Check out Basecamp, the world’s tallest climbing wall at 164 vertical feet, at the incredible, all-new Whitney Peak Hotel! Or go with the flow at the Truckee River Whitewater Park, one of the premier destinations for freestyle kayakers … and the amazed spectators who like to watch every spin, stall and flip from shore. For an authentic Tahoe experience, head to Incline Village on the tranquil North Shore, home of world-famous Sand Harbor, a championship golf, awesome ski views and the most stunning shoreline you’ll ever seen. And if you really want to elevate your experience, hop in a glider plane at SoaringNV in nearby Minden. Its tours range from gentle and peaceful flights over the Carson Valley to the “Tahoe Wild Ride,”

featuring

loops,

rolls and inverted flight. So you’ll be one of the very few people on the planet who can say they’ve seen Lake Tahoe from a

dians, bars, clubs, stage shows, ultralounges and more, who can blame us? Needless to say, it’s a good idea to grab a power nap before you hit the town because it may be the only sleep you get! For concert-lovers, there’s always a great show getting ready to crank the volume up to 11, including free shows throughout the summer at Rollin’ on the River in downtown Reno or the weekly Sparks Farmers’ Market on Victorian Avenue. Take part in a monthly wine walk or pub crawl that lets you sample several downtown and midtown bars in a single outing. We even have themed crawls so you can dress up as your favorite zombie, vampire or Santa. The scene is always jumping!

For “10 Best Places to Drink Rum” local flavor, check out the Zagat.com booming Midtown and Riverwalk Districts, with Reno (7 years in a row) distinctive favorites like St. “Loosest Slots in America” James Brasserie, Chapel Casino Player Magazine Tavern or Death & Taxes.

day trips — lake tahoe

Into the Blue Mark Twain called Lake Tahoe “the Jewel of the Sierra,” and many think of it as America’s most beautiful drive. You can begin your journey anywhere along the loop, but you might want to start by heading up the sweeping switchbacks of the Mt. Rose Highway (SR 431) where, just past the summit on the way to Incline Village, is one of the best overlooks in the region. From there you can head west to Tahoe City’s Fanny Bridge, the Gatekeeper’s Museum and the best lazy-day river rafting around. Or continue south to The Shops at Heavenly Village, a paddleboat cruise on the lake and hiking at world-famous Emerald Bay.

day trips — pyramid lake & gerlach

Desert Day-Tripper Pyramid Lake is one crazy-cool place. Dissolved minerals in the water have formed the area’s fanciful rock formations, including the towering stone pyramid on the eastern shore, that give the lake a look that can only be described as “exotic.” Pyramid is a component of the National Scenic Byways Program and also happens to be a classic spot for fishing and boating. Head north from there to visit Gerlach, a small desert town that’s the gateway to the Black Rock Desert, home of the Burning Man festival and a beacon for speed freaks. In 1997 on the flat playa, an over-amped hybrid of rocket and racecar became the first land vehicle to crack the speed of sound.

day trips — carson city & Virginia city

The Wild, Wild West Virginia City wasn’t always the small, ruggedly charming place it is today. In its heyday, it was the largest city between San Francisco and Denver. Sample its charms by cruising the boardwalk, taking a ghost tour, visiting the historic Fourth Ward School Museum and ambling through the Comstock Wild Horse and Mining Museum. You’ll also want to check out Carson City, the capital of the Silver State, which is home to the Nevada State Museum. Or enjoy a stroll along the Kit Carson Trail and explore Carson City’s landmarks and stately Victorian houses. And don’t forget about the Nevada State Railroad Sutcliffe Museum, the Governor’s Mansion and

the Capitol.

section header getting here

Check out a list of airlines serving the Reno-Tahoe International Airport by going to VisitRenoTahoe.com and clicking on “Getting Here.” If you’re hitting the road to get here, Reno and Sparks are located at the junction of Interstate 80 and U.S. 395/I-580. I-80 provides all-weather access across Donner Summit from central and Northern California. From Southern California, it’s a straight shot up U.S. 395 along the dramatic eastern front of the Sierra Nevada. From the northwest, take I-5 south to I-80 or, in the spring and summer, opt for the scenic shortcut that leaves I-5 at Mount Shasta and follows California 89 and 44 southeast through Susanville. A third option is Amtrak’s California Zephyr, which arrives daily from the Bay Area and Sacramento to the west and Salt Lake and Denver to the east. Trains from the Northwest, coastal Southern California and the Central Valley connect to the Zephyr in Sacramento.
