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.

You Know How to Say Nevada, but What About Poinsettia?

By Keith Rugg | Monday, December 20, 2021
December is a funny time of year because we’re done with the harvest, the temperatures are dropping and we’re beginning to get snow. Of all the seasons, this is when it seems that thoughts of plants and vegetation should be the furthest from our minds. And yet, for a sizeable percentage of the population, now is when... Read More

A Love Letter to the Airport

By Keith Rugg | Monday, November 1, 2021
You know, growing up in the great American West, if there was someplace we needed to be, we drove there. Groceries? Drive 20 minutes into town. A movie? Drive an hour into one of the bigger towns. Vacation? Drive four to 12 hours to the destination, depending on what family lived along the way. The thought of actually... Read More

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

April Showers Bring Live Entertainment

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

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. Of course, being a groundhog, Phil wasn’t able to elaborate and clarify that all six weeks’ worth of cold weather was going to be squeezed into one big heap of sub-zero temperatures blasting their...
