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

How You Gonna Keep the Pumpkins Down on the Farm?

By Keith Rugg | Tuesday, September 22, 2020
I’m one of those guys who thinks that the marketplace pushes holidays and events on us too early. I don’t like to see Halloween costumes go on sale until at least October 1, and I cringe when New Year’s decorations hit the shelves before we’ve even finished eating our Thanksgiving turkey. That being said, if there was... Read More

Soccer It To Me

By Keith Rugg | Tuesday, September 15, 2020
It’s a rough year on the calendar. So many of the dates that were set aside on my list of Reno events ended up with a big red X through them. But you know one thing that didn’t get canceled? Professional soccer. I’m talking football in the form of the Reno 1868 FC Soccer Team. With some fancy footwork (both literally... Read More

By Keith Rugg | Monday, September 7, 2020
News came out last week that Dairy Queen is going to add a handful of franchise locations to the Reno/Carson area over the next few years. “Huh,” I said to myself, “do they really think the market needs more DQ ice cream shops? I think we’re fairly full up as it is.…” So you can imagine my surprise to learn that the... Read More

Reno Disc Golf from North to South

By Keith Rugg | Monday, August 31, 2020
A couple of weeks ago I posted about the state of disc golf down in the Carson area and was going to follow up with a survey of the courses here in the Reno area, but I got sidetracked by the smoke. Better late than never, let’s take a look at the offerings here in the local neck of the woods for those who like to... Read More

Readin' in Reno

By Keith Rugg | Tuesday, August 25, 2020
Especially in the summertime, I like to post about the fun stuff there is to do in the great out of doors. But with the particulates rating red-lining on the air quality index due to wildfire smoke, I thought this week might be a good time to just close the windows and hunker down inside with a good book. And what... Read More
