What makes Reno so special?

The old Galena Lodge welcomes a trio of brand-new businesses, the perfect pit stops before or apres ski!

 

For 30+ years, the Alpine lodge on Mount Rose Highway was home to restaurants. You’ll find the quaint location just a few minutes beyond Montreux, in the Galena Forest area as the road rises towards Lake Tahoe. The Galena Forest Inn was built and opened in the lodge in 1983 by Reno culinary figures Gaudenz Derungs and Walter Zahnd. Julius Weiss, another Reno chef, bought the restaurant in 1988 and ran it for a decade before it was purchased by Craig Cunningham, another longtime local restauranteur. Later in 2005, Sierra Solitaire set up and wasn’t around for long. The Lodge at Galena followed and was open until 2013.

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 afternoon

Kick off at the Grand Sierra Resort with their ice skating rink near the resort pool. Hit the ice with your skates, then grab some apres-skate hot chocolate and s’mores from the bar. You can head inside to warm up, or get toasty by one of the firepits. If you’d rather stay inside, they have tons of great options – bowling, laser tag, an arcade, indoor golf and more.

Lake Tahoe is the summertime go-to and there’s nothing better than enjoying a delicious meal with the lake’s perfect background.

As you roam around Tahoe’s 72 miles of shoreline wondering what to do next, be sure to check out these fabulous eateries. What could be better than an umbrella-shaded table on a restaurant deck where the cool breeze is highlighted by even cooler margaritas? Nothing. Nothing is better.

Gone are the days when people flocked to Reno to waste dollar bills on slot machines and tables. Today, the Biggest Little City is completely different.

Just south of the Truckee River is the hip Midtown area, the “it” place to enjoy the city. Shops, restaurants and bars inhabit early 20th century bungalows and give it an eclectic feel. This neighborhood arose from entrepreneurs finding their way during the recession and because of that there is a feeling of authenticity found there. Business owners will recommend their competition with a smile and a sense of community is in the air. The people here have one thing in common – they’ve all come together to create something special from what was once considered seedy.
