What makes Reno so special?

Midsize cities in the U.S. are seeing a renaissance as people from large metro areas are getting sick of the hustle and bustle by putting down roots in smaller cities like Reno, Nevada. Compared to big cities, you’ll find better priced housing, improved quality of life, and business opportunities galore. What is the secret of the Biggest Little City that makes it such a great place to settle down? We have five great reasons why!

One of the largest winters on record graced the Reno-Tahoe region and each week we can feel it getting a little bit warmer.

When it seemed like spring would never come, suddenly the sun is shining! Those bluebird days put the itch of summer in our shoes and we’re looking forward to enjoying so many springtime activities. You can enjoy the best of both worlds, or as locals affectionately call it “The Tahoe Trifecta”.

What is the Trifecta? Golf, boat/kayak and ski all in the same day. Seems impossible, but we can guarantee you that it isn’t. The weather is just warm enough to be comfortable, but not so warm that the lake is full of boats and paddlers.

Lake Tahoe ski resorts have extended their operations well into the spring following record snowfall in February.

Skiers and riders rejoice! More than 50 feet of snow has fallen so far this season and the mountains could even get a bit more. An extended season has been announced by the area’s resorts, which means more bang for your buck for season pass-holders.

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows will operate lifts in Squaw through July 7, which is just 8 days shy of their latest closing date ever on July 15, 2017. Last year, Squaw closed following Memorial Day weekend. Alpine Meadows will operate into May with its schedule dependent on both weather and the construction of a high-speed chair lift that will replace Hot Wheels.

Reno is a unique city because it perfectly captures the mix of big-city attractions and a small-town vibe. A lot has changed in the last few years and there is a new vibe of re-energized ways to eat, drink and play. Here’s our suggestion for a 24-hour, fun-filled adventure.

Saturday evening

Now it’s time for dinner! Reno’s Riverwalk is a great place for a
