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.

Marmots and Rock Chucks and Whistle Pigs, Oh My.

By Keith Rugg | Tuesday, February 16, 2021
A couple of weeks ago, Punxsutawney Phil, that magical groundhog out in Pennsylvania, predicted six more weeks of winter.

Look to the Skies!

By Keith Rugg | Wednesday, January 20, 2021
January. Meh. It’s a month that never quite lives up to the hype or the expectations of being the dawning of a new and exciting year. It’s a cold month. And February is cold too, so it’s not even like January leads into warm weather. The days are getting longer (I guess), but it’s still dark when I leave the house and... Read More

Pitching in with a Helping Hand

By Keith Rugg | Tuesday, January 12, 2021
I don’t know about you, but through most of December, I was getting an average of about three or four charity solicitations per day, and that’s just what came in through the post office, it doesn’t even count the emails. I know there are some valid reasons for non-profit organizations to really work hard on their... Read More

Come On In, the Ice is Nice

By Keith Rugg | Wednesday, January 6, 2021
The year 2020 is in the rearview mirror. I don’t know about your family, but I don’t think there’s been a year when we’ve gone through a December without watching It’s A Wonderful Life at least three or four times, and last year was no exception. You may remember the scene when the pack of youngsters is playing on the... Read More
