YOU. US.

PLAN ON IT. T

here’s a place not far off

yet a world away, a place where personal passions are played out every day and every night. Reno Tahoe USA is a place where kayaks and climbing walls share the same stage as casinos and cabarets. It’s where PGAcaliber courses stretch from high ­deserts to stunning lakes and where

world-class spas call out to those in search of simpler pleasures. It’s where you can check out the cars of James Dean, John Wayne and Frank Sinatra, dance to reggae on the river in the middle of a white water kayaking competition, sip your first pomegranate poinsettia ­martini, hunt for ghosts in an Old West ­cemetery, and inhale a burger as big

as your head — all in the same day. It’s where life’s fans gather for those games, festivals and events that remind us of the importance of a moment lived well. Most of all, it’s where passions thrive at every point of the compass. Reno Tahoe USA. What’s your passion?

ARTS & CULTURE

step two

EXPAND THY CULTURE. W

hen you think of a

­cultural mecca, Reno Tahoe USA may not be the first ­destination that springs to mind. Well, that’s a shame because this little corner of the earth has ­experienced an arts and culture boom over the last few years. The Riverwalk Arts District in downtown Reno is home to a ­thriving collection of artistic ­communities, shops, galleries,

theaters and social gatherings. Take a short stroll to the acclaimed Nevada Museum of Art or cruise on over to the National Automobile Museum. Check out the talents of the Reno Philharmonic, Nevada Opera and Reno Chamber Orchestra. Gather the family and head to the Nevada Discovery Museum, where learning and fun are rolled into one. Or hit the beach for

the ­unforgettable Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival. Oh, and don’t forget the ­coolest party on the planet – Burning Man. Once a year, over 50,000 participants gather to be part of an experimental ­community – Black Rock City – in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert just north of Reno for this annual event dedicated to art, self-expression . . . and burning stuff. visitrenotahoe.com 13

EVENTS

step three

MARK YOUR CALENDAR. L

et’s face it. Every desti-

nation claims to have special events. Here in Reno Tahoe USA, events fall more into the category of extraordinary. Take the spring and summer season, where visitors are treated to an eye-popping, taste bud-tantalizing, hair-raising event practically every week. The rest of the year brings you even more events that celebrate the

16

snow, the sun, and pretty much everything in between. Speaking of celebrations, nobody knows how to throw a party like Reno Tahoe USA. There are parades down the streets of Reno, Sparks, Virginia City and Lake Tahoe that range from the Street Vibrations motorcycle rally to Hot August Nights, the West Coast’s largest classic car event.

Reno Tahoe USA Getaway Planner

People also are really ­passionate about competing around here.From racing camels to hot air balloons to outhouses, you’re sure to find someone or something to cheer on. Plus, there’s always an appetite for food competitions, including the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off and, for you adventurous types, the Mountain Oyster Festival.

NIGHTLIFE

P

assion for Partying. Grab a bite, a pint or maybe even a Reno Aces fly ball at the Freight House District. From martini bars to wine bars to dive bars to ultralounges to themed pub crawls, there’s never a dull moment in our 24-hour city.

22

Reno Tahoe USA Getaway Planner


NIGHTLIFE

step four

TAKE A POWER NAP. I

t’s true that Reno has a

­tendency to stay up all night. With 24-hour gaming action, ­concerts, comedians, bars, clubs, stage shows, ultralounges and more, who can blame us? Needless to say, it’s sometimes best 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 eleven, 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, superhero, vampire or Santa. Or check out the new Freight House District and the Reno Aces AAA Baseball Club. This is way more than just a great game; it’s bars, restaurants, a dance club and more, all within walking distance of downtown Reno.

Dining

step five

PACK AN APPETITE. S

o you thought Reno Tahoe

USA was just buffets? Think again. Here you’ll find gourmet steak houses, romantic bistros, authentic delis and more sushi bars than you can shake a chopstick at. Treat yourself to a legendary Awful Awful burger at the Nugget Diner. Indulge in Grilled King Salmon at the Lone Eagle Grille

24

in the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe. Feast on the cracked peppercrusted New York Steak topped with brandy green peppercorn sauce at Harrah’s Steak House. Eat a chocolate burger with mango fries at Bistro Napa inside Atlantis Casino Resort Spa. “Ciao” down on La Strada’s famous mushroom ravioli inside Eldorado Hotel Casino. Dine on Sterling’s filet mignon

Reno Tahoe USA Getaway Planner

“Oscar style” at Silver Legacy Resort Casino. Raise a fork to the bleu cheese-crusted top sirloin at Charlie Palmer Steak in Grand Sierra Resort and Casino. Get the idea? From hearty homestyle ­loving to exotic indulgence, those with a passion for culinary c ­ reativity and flavorful fare are in for one ­unforgettable dining experience after another.


Dining

P

assion for Flavor. Our dining scene has something to suit every palate. All-youcan-eat sushi bars abound. Enjoy live music and a killer view of the Truckee River in the Riverwalk District. Not looking to go gourmet? Reno has a diversity of quick, fresh and tasty eats to satisfy any craving.

Shopping

step six

DO SOME ARM CURLS. B

efore you head to Reno

Tahoe USA, you might want to work out your biceps because with tons of shops and millions of finds, you’re bound to do some heavy lifting while you’re here. If you’re looking to go big, there’s no better place than the 125,000-square-foot Cabela’s – the World’s Foremost Outfitter. Or, for a different kind of sporting

goods nirvana, make your way to The Legends at Sparks Marina and step into Scheels – the World’s Largest All-Sports Store. For your next stop on the shopping tour, head to The Summit, an open-air center that houses over 70 premier shops, restaurants and salons. And don’t forget to stop by local favorite Meadowood Mall, with over 100

shops and eateries. Looking to get away from the mall scene? Then venture to the heart of Reno for one-of-akind gems in the Downtown River District or on California Avenue, both hot spots for fashion, flavors and fun. In other words, your closet is about to get very cramped. Hey, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Mark Twain called it “the Jewel of the Sierra” and many think of it as America’s most beautiful drive. Here’s your chance to embark on a scenic journey around Lake Tahoe’s ­shoreline and find out why it was ranked the top U.S. destination in TripAdvisor.com’s 2008 Travelers’ Choice Destinations Awards. At 22 miles long and 12 miles wide, Lake Tahoe is North America’s largest alpine lake. The water is 99.99% pure and 100% breathtaking. 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) just past Mount Rose Summit on the way to Incline Village for one of the best overlooks in the region. From there you can head west to interests like Tahoe City’s Fanny Bridge, the Gatekeeper’s Museum and the best lazyday river rafting around. Or cruise south to The Shops at Heavenly Village, the Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum and world-famous Emerald Bay.

Pyramid Lake and Gerlach 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, and give the lake a look that can only be described as “exotic.” All of Pyramid is within the reservation of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, which has been living along its shores for centuries. You can explore the tribe’s history and culture at the Pyramid Lake Museum & Visitor Center in Nixon at the south end of the lake. Pyramid is a component of the National Scenic Byways Program and also happens to be a classic spot for fishing and boating. If you’re planning a trip here, why not take it a bit farther and head to Gerlach? This small desert town is 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.

Browse for highfashion clothing, Sierra-proof sportswear or eco-friendly apparel. Indulge in a wine tasting in the heart of downtown Truckee.

Every city has a place that refuses to blend in. Reno’s Riverwalk & Arts District is just such a place. It runs from the Riverwalk along the Truckee River to California Avenue just a few short blocks south, much of the route defined by 60 wind-driven kinetic copper and steel sculptures mounted on light poles. You just never know what you’ll discover in the shops, galleries, coffee houses, museums and restaurants that line the river and the CalAve neighborhood. Visit the Nevada Museum of Art 1 , enjoy a concert at the Wingfield Park Amphitheater 2 , check out the 11 drop-pools at the Truckee River Whitewater Park 3 , see the famous collection at the National Automobile Museum 4 , take in a production at the Brüka Theatre 5 or explore the Nevada Discovery Museum 6 for fun family-based learning. Classic and ­contemporary ­architecture offer a distinct backdrop and add to the charm of this district that begs to be explored.

Carson City and Virginia City Virginia City wasn’t always the small, ruggedly charming place it is today. It was once the largest city between San Francisco and Denver. Get a taste of its heyday by digging into this historic mining town – literally. Yep, you and the family can actually dig in and pan for gold here. Other unique experiences include hunting for the afterlife on a ghost tour, visiting the historic Fourth Ward School Museum for a flavor of the Old West and ambling through the Comstock Wild Horse and Mining Museum. Moving on to the capital of the Silver State, Carson City is home to the Nevada State Museum, housed in a former U.S. mint. Need to stretch your legs? Enjoy a stroll along the Kit Carson Trail and explore Carson City’s landmarks and Victorian houses on a walking tour of the town. Oh, and don’t forget about the Nevada State Railroad Museum, the Governor’s Mansion and the Capitol. To Sacramento,

LODGING

CHOOSE A BASE CAMP. N

eon nirvana  or lakefront

lodge? Spa retreat or cozy inn? However you prefer to stay, you’ll find the right accommodations to fit your getaway. In addition to great d ­ owntown options like Eldorado Hotel Casino, Silver Legacy Resort Casino, Circus Circus Reno and Harrah’s Reno, consider John Ascuaga’s Nugget in Sparks for beautiful Sierra views and easy access to Victorian Square. Or the Atlantis

Casino Resort Spa with its all-new Spa Atlantis, one of only eight spas in the country to offer the highly specialized Pantai® Lunar treatment. Or the Grand Sierra Resort, with never-ending options for entertainment, shopping, dining and family-fun under one roof. Or the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, home of the world-class Stillwater Spa that includes two couples sanctuaries, one with a fireplace and the other with an

infinity tub. Or the Peppermill Resort Casino with its recent $400-million (yep, that’s not a typo) expansion. If small-scale is your style, Reno Tahoe USA has unique riverfront hotels and limited service inns. Don’t ­forget Incline Village, either, for its quaint inns and mountain retreats. Wherever you stay, you’re in for a serious treat. And we’re not just talking about that little mint on your pillow. visitrenotahoe.com 39

The pleasures of Carson City range from the raw to the refined, from hitching a ride on a vintage train to settling into an evening of song and dance. Whether it’s rafting a river, skiing the slopes, touring museums, exploring the Kit Carson Trail or finding that cozy retreat, Carson City delivers.

assion for Planning. Wheels or wings, Reno Tahoe USA is an easy trip from just about anywhere, and our airport welcomes all the major carriers from around the country each day, many non-stops.


GETTING HERE

step ten

GET HERE ALREADY! C

heck out all airline flights

serving the Reno-Tahoe International Airport by going to VisitRenoTahoe.com and clicking on “Getting Here” or do a keyword search: Reno-Tahoe International Airport. 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-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. For more specifics – including access to flights, road conditions, itineraries and more – go to VisitRenoTahoe.com. visitrenotahoe.com 51
