Living in Reno
The Reno-Lake Tahoe area is a recreational, cultural, and historic mecca. Reno's downtown redevelopment has transformed the face of the city in dramatic ways: Riverwalk, kayak park, and the Reno Aces Ballpark to name a few. To the west, the Sierra Nevada rise abruptly into a mountain zone of pine forests, alpine meadows, lakes and splashing streams. To the east, the Great Basin opens up to wide open and empty spaces, dry landscapes, brown mountain ranges and sagebrush plains. In a single day you can ski in the morning, kayak in downtown Reno in the afternoon, take a quick mountain bike ride on Peavine Peak, and top it off with drinks, dinner and a show that night. If that isn't enough, Lake Tahoe is less than an hour away with its own unique combination of indoor and outdoor activities.
