At the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains lies Reno, once the gaming capital of the United States, before Las Vegas took the limelight. While its casinos are still one of the city's major draws, scratch the surface and Reno unravels hidden depths. The rough-and-tumble lure of the roaring rapids on Truckee River, pine-scented hiking paths along Ophir Creek Trails, and skiing on Mount Rose are great choices for outdoor enthusiasts. The Truckee River Corridor offers glimpses of the city's pioneer legacy, while the mid-century modern architecture of downtown speaks of a more recent past. A plethora of bars, clubs and entertainment venues make Reno a top choice for those with a party streak. From sunset vistas over desert landscapes to stylish poker games at one of the city's top casinos, Reno has an eclectic spirit that's sure to thrill.
