Your Guide to Reno, NV

On your next trip to “The Biggest Little City in the World,” don’t get caught in the public transportation trap. From glittering casinos to a charming riverfront district, Reno has something for everyone, and you’ll need your own vehicle to see it all. Explore this big—yet small-feeling—town at your leisure with a cheap Reno car rental.

Rambling Around Reno

If you’re visiting during July, you’ll see Reno transform into Artown, a festival celebrating everything about art. Take in a fashion show, tour art galleries, attend workshops, and watch various live performances throughout all of July. If you’re looking for something you can enjoy year-round, rental cars in Reno, NV can take you to the National Automobile Museum. Located on the south side of the Truckee River, this museum is home to a collection of cars dating back to the 19th century. If you love famous automobiles, you’re in luck; you can see the 1912 Rambler from the opening scenes of the 1997 movie “Titanic,” as well as a Mercury coupe owned by James Dean.
If you’re interested in something a little livelier, the Reno Riverwalk runs along the Truckee River, and is the perfect place to spend a day or a night. Attend a monthly Beer & Wine Walk to sample some of the spirits, grab dinner at one of the more than 20 restaurants, and do some shopping for the perfect Reno souvenir.
Visit one of the many casinos in the area for some responsible gaming. Reno casinos are as well-known as their Las Vegas counterparts, and many offer fantastic live shows, delicious buffets, and spa services to reinvigorate you after a long day on the Riverwalk.

Beyond the Lights

A car rental in Reno doesn’t just limit you to Reno itself. Pack a lunch, switch on the optional GPS, and see what else this beautiful part of the Silver State has to offer. If you’re into the Wild West, head for Virginia City, located 26 miles south of Reno. Enjoy a meal at a genuine Old West Saloon, take a ride on a stagecoach, or even take a tour of one of the many mines that helped put Virginia City—and the greater area—on the map.
Forty miles south of Reno is Lake Tahoe, which straddles the state line between Nevada and California. During the winter, Tahoe is a skiing and snowboarding paradise; during the summer, hike through miles of forested trails, or fish, kayak, and engage in other watersports over the deep blue waters of the lake.
Ready for a real road trip? Head for Sacramento. The capital city of California is about 130 miles west of Reno, and has a number of surprises for you. Visit the stately Capitol Building, learn about trains at the California State Railroad Museum, and watch the Sacramento Kings play a game at the Sleep Train Arena®.

History of Reno

While settlers lived in the Reno area beginning in the 1850s, Reno itself was not established until 1868. It was named after Major General Jesse Lee Reno, an officer in the Union Army during a number of conflicts, including the Civil War. The city of Reno saw a boom in its economy and population in 1872, when the Virginia and Truckee Railroad connected Reno to Carson City and other mining boom towns. Though the mining eventually waned, Reno found new growth when Nevada legalized gambling in 1931, and a number of casinos sprang up throughout the area.

The Weather

Reno enjoys four distinct seasons, along with about 300 days of sunshine year-round. This part of Nevada only receives about 7 inches of rain per year, most of it during the months of December through February. Winter brings about 21 inches of snowfall per year, as well as a handful of freezing nights; if you’re visiting in December or January, you can expect lows in the 20s and highs in the mid-40s. Summer sees average highs in the 90s, as well as thunderstorms sweeping in from Virginia Mountains to the east.
