What is it? A picturesque, paved path that runs for miles along the Truckee River.
Why go? Probably the most scenic part of Reno, wander or bike along the Riverwalk and check out art installations, historic tributes and some of Reno’s oldest homes between the many coffee houses, shops, parks, and eateries. Sample a few grapes on the Wine Walk, every third Saturday of the month.
Long ago, Reno was the gateway for thousands of miners on the hunt for gold; today, it’s the gateway city to Burning Man. You can shop for cowboy hats and steampunk gear on the same block, down cocktails 24-hours-a-day in dive bars, and easily find fine-dining and farm-to-table meals, freshly crafted microbrews or just-roasted coffee.
With the Sierra Nevada mountains towering over it, a river running through it and an hour from Lake Tahoe, Reno is a beautiful place – snowy in the winter, hot in the summer, colorful in the spring and fall. Giant graffiti murals show off the town’s artistic side; you can visit places once frequented by legends like Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra; or you may see someone on a unicycle ride by casually at any moment.
