Nestled at the confluence of the Nevada high desert and the Sierra Nevada mountain range, this region revels in contrasts. Towering pines and vast desert expanses. Food trucks and five-star dining. Eclectic urban murals and gleaming alpine lakes. The world’s highest climbing wall and Burning Man. No rest from the beautiful here. No breathers for adventure seekers, fun lovers and free spirits. There’s caution-to-the-wind skiing and biking for adrenaline junkies, a hip day-n-night urban scene, museums and music for culture vultures, and gorgeous scenery drenched in 300 days of sunshine. Reno has come into its own with a robust mix of heavy hitters who have set up shop in this tech-savvy city, and a burgeoning arts community now takes to the streets with murals, sculptures and installation art. Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America, is within easy driving distance of Reno. Its pristine waters are a summer sweet spot for paddle-boarders, kayakers and fishing enthusiasts. The surrounding mountains provide a winter playhouse for snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing and tubing. No matter how outsized your wishes are or off-the-hook your ambitions may be, seek and ye shall find your level of adventure in Reno Tahoe.
