Most people have a very specific type of activity in mind when they think of Reno attractions. Gaming and entertainment are the driving forces behind much of our history of tourism. But once visitors get here, they may be surprised at all the other things there are to do and see. Reno attractions do, indeed, include some world-class entertainment venues and vacation resorts. There are also numerous museums and galleries, a top-notch university, indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities and many historical sites. Reno attractions aren't just for the enjoyment of the tourists. Those of us who live here choose to do so for the quality of life we can experience in a community that offers both the warmth of a small town and the activity of a big city. At any time of day or night, we can find something fun to do. The fact that we can share these attractions with the rest of the world is just an added bonus. It is a real thrill to know that people come from all over the globe for a once-in-a-lifetime experience when this is the reality of our day-to-day lives. Seeing the town through others' eyes helps to keep the residents from taking the Reno attractions for granted.
Natural Reno Attractions
The notable Reno attractions aren't all centered around the city that humanity has built up. The Biggest Little City enjoys the bounty of nature in the forms of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the Truckee Meadows and the Truckee River. All important Reno attractions in their own right, these natural features are the perfect complement to the rest of the city's features, firmly positioning our community among the world's vacation destinations.
