Reno, Nevada has been called “the biggest little city in the world” and is often described as a small Las Vegas. Located in northwestern Nevada near the California state line, Reno is the second largest city in the state.
Boasting more than five million visitors a year, Reno offers a wide range of entertainment and educational attractions. It also makes a great base if you’re planning to visit the Lake Tahoe recreational area 45 minutes away, as well as Pyramid Lake to the northeast of the city. Even within the city limits you can expect to find gems like Mount Rose as well as parks, botanical gardens and arboretums.
