Reno Blog

Reno isn't called the Biggest Little City for nothing. While it's true that you can get to the airport in less than a half-hour from just about any place in town, it's also true that there is more going on here than you can imagine, let alone keep track of.  So in order to stay up on all of the latest events and activities, don't miss our timely and informative Reno blog. On a weekly basis, a Truckee Meadows insider will give you the background information on all your favorite goings-on and clue you in to new opportunities to get out and about. Forget about the Reno of yesteryear, when gambling was the main focus of the area and people came here in order to get a divorce. These days, participation opportunities abound whether you are a footloose and fancy-free Millennial, a parent trying to find something to catch the interest of kids or teens or someone just coming into the prime of your life. In fact, as you become a steady reader of the blog, you'll be amazed at how diversified the community has become over the past years, with something to offer all ages and all interests whether you've lived here forever or are visiting for the first time.

Reno's Springtime Gardens

By Keith Rugg | Wednesday, March 31, 2021
I recently posted about how April showers seem to be bringing live entertainment back to the Biggest Little City. But I think it’s also worth revisiting the original old adage of April showers bring May flowers. My friends and relatives from other parts of the country often seem to think that the entirety of the state... Read More

By Keith Rugg | Thursday, March 18, 2021
One of the great things about living in Nevada has always been the opportunity to check out some live entertainment. Now we all know that the point most of that live entertainment is to draw people into the casinos, but there’s nothing wrong with that. There’s no law that says you’ve got to play a slot machine in... Read More
