Get to know Reno

Channeling the crystal waters of Lake Tahoe, the Truckee River runs leisurely through downtown Reno. Numerous mountain ranges rise ruggedly from the desert basin, providing stunning views and unmatched sunsets. When you breathe the crisp mountain air and smell the hint of sagebrush on the breeze, you'll know you're in Reno.

Discover everything the region has to offer and maybe a bit more. We think you'll come to find the Reno-Tahoe region is a place you'll want to call home.
