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!

 

  1. YES to Business and Jobs; NO to Income Tax.

Just three short years ago, Tesla opened its Gigafactory and employed over 5,000 people. Soon after, other large companies followed suit like Apple, Switch, Microsoft, Intuit, and Patagonia. This movement created thousands of jobs for all

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.

Many local ski resorts will be closing by the end of April, so get

Sierra Vista Park is set to begin construction next month and is scheduled to open to the public in early May.

 Director of Parks of Recreation of Reno, Andy Bass, says that they finished construction of the perimeter trail around the park last summer, and at a recent City Council meeting the city approved to start building the entrance gate. More than 200 acres will be getting a new life at the site of the former Northgate Golf Course. The area has been empty since 2009 and it’s a great opportunity to have open space preserved in the city.

The City of Reno bought the property in 2011 for $2.5 million, but was waiting to see how the city grew before deciding what to make of it. Now they are moving forward with rehabilitation and plan to add

The fall views in Lake Tahoe are absolutely stunning this time of year and we have the best hikes to enjoy a picnic and the views.

The best hikes end with aged cheese, cured meats and other delicious picnic items. Before the snow begins to flurry, fall is a great time to get out and enjoy all the diverse beauty of the Sierra Nevada. The many different colors and the crisp, clear air pair perfectly with the clear blues of Lake Tahoe’s waters (and of course a snack). No matter your hiking level, the five below range in distance and difficulty so there is a hike here for you!

Lake Margaret

The hike to Lake Margaret is an out-and-back trail of about 4.6 miles. Located in the El Dorado National Forest, there are large granite rocks all along the

There are so many awesome outdoor experiences around Reno and Lake Tahoe and Interbike 2018 is here this week so we wanted to share some of our favorite mountain biking trails.

Before we know it, members of the biking world from all over will be descending on our area looking for great places to ride. These trails are fun for locals and visitors alike!

The world’s largest free hot-air balloon festival makes its return to the Rancho San Rafael Regional Park this weekend.

In 1982, just 20 hot-air balloons took flight at the Great Reno Balloon Race. Now, close to 100 balloons will lift off on September 7 – 9. Spectators are clad in pajamas, wrapped in blankets and clutching hot beverages as they gaze into the sky for the Glow Show that takes place at dawn. Shortly after, some will rise for Dawn Patrol and then the rest follow later at Mass Ascension. Skill and consistency are the keys to a victory and a piece of the $11,000 prize.

The mission of the GRBR is to provide a premier, safe and family oriented event that is visually dramatic and celebrates the joy of flight while remaining free to the
