There’s more to this big little city than casinos and gambling. Tune into this episode of “Eat Play Stay” to see what Reno has to offer for tourists.

Where is Reno?

Reno is in the northwest section of Nevada and it sits along the California-Nevada border. Named the “Biggest Little City in the World,” Reno is less than an hour from Lake Tahoe, six hours from Las Vegas, and two hours from Sacramento.

It’s known for its casino and tourism industry, but there’s a lot more to it than gambling — making it a great weekend getaway for those looking for great outdoor recreation, nightlife, and culture.
