WELCOME TO RENO
is a remote chance, somebody will take it. Wherever there is a risk, somebody will risk it.
Wherever there is a way to win, somebody will attempt it. In Nevada you
can bet on it. The discovery of the Comstock Lode in 1859 brought a flood of
would-be gold miners to the area. Tahoe became the center of a lively commerce
for the wood needed to supply the mines, the new boomtowns, and the railroad. Today the region remains one of the last frontiers
and continues to offer a sense of adventure.

Reno is located on the eastern side of the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains.
From the casinos to its unprecedented natural surroundings, Reno is a city rich in both tradition and exciting entertainment.
Forty-five minutes from world-famous Lake Tahoe, the Reno-Sparks community
is surrounded by natural beauty and limitless recreational opportunities. The
Reno-Sparks-Lake Tahoe region has over 18 world-class ski resorts, many just a short 45 minutes from downtown, and 40-plus
golf courses. World-class fishing, hiking, biking, and numerous other outdoor
activities abound. The area also boasts 60 gaming locations with excellent entertainment and restaurants, the National Bowling
Stadium, the National Automobile Museum, and the historic boomtown of Virginia City.
High-peaked mountains surround the region in every direction. The geography
ranges from high desert hills to valleys covered with deciduous and evergreen trees.
The Truckee River flows casually through the heart of the city, winding its way through an eclectic mixture of stately
manors, quaint churches, sleek high rises, city parks, and casinos. Shopping
malls and new residential developments canvas the city limits and are nestled against mountains that offer endless outdoor
recreation, and cradle the magnificent Lake Tahoe.
