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.

By Keith Rugg | Tuesday, January 28, 2020
Last week I talked about getting out and about and taking a walk. Fresh air, exercise and all that jazz. Good, clean living. And it was all with the ulterior motive of feeling less guilty about this week's post. Because now we're ramping up toward one of my favorite celebrations of indulgence, Valentine's Day. Some...

Enjoy the Wildlife of the Great Indoors

By Keith Rugg | Tuesday, January 14, 2020
Folks in the Reno area get to experience a unique exposure to the wide outdoors. We have the High Sierra to the west, the Great Basin to the east and miles and miles (and miles and miles!) of the remote American interior to the north and south.

For all other West Coast teams, well, Reno isn’t too far from Los Angeles and the Pacific Northwest either. Plus Reno... Read More

Reno's Doughnut Roundup

By Bryan Akerley | Tuesday, February 20, 2018
I know, I know. It’s only February, and anyone who chose on January 1 to commit to a wholesome, healthy and decidedly doughnut-free lifestyle in 2018 is (hopefully) still on that track. But just who could ever resist that fluffy, sweet, chocolate-and-sprinkle-covered round of deliciousness, at least once in a blue... Read More
