    Reno may be a desert city, but the Truckee River (fed by Lake Tahoe) flows right through the centre of town and is a great way to see the city from a unique vantage. You don’t even have to go outside the city limits to cool off on the Truckee River – Truckee River WhiteWater Park offers a unique opportunity to kayak, raft, swim, or ride an inner tube right through downtown Reno without having to navigate major rapids.

    There are opportunities to do some more intense whitewater rafting outside city limits, but we highly recommend booking an experienced river outfitter if that’s what you’re looking for.

    Reno casinos

    Your all-in-one entertainment hub

    • Нічне життя

    Reno is so much more than just casinos, but it would be doing you a disservice not to recognise that they’re a major player in the entertainment industry. Many casinos offer more than gambling – they also offer amenities such as shows, spas, shopping, pools, bars, and restaurants.

    Casinos in Reno can also serve as your home base to explore everything else Reno has to offer and sometimes offer discounts for package deals. Of course, if you’re feeling lucky and think lady luck is on your side, go ahead and cast the die or play a hand at cards and see where it takes you!
