    Reno beyond the neon

    Think of Reno and a vision of glittering casinos and glamorous cabarets springs to mind. This vibrant city has been welcoming good-timers since Nevada became the first state to legalize gambling in 1931. But there’s much more to modern-day Reno than chips and slots. Look beyond the neon and you’ll find a sophisticated cultural scene, world-class sporting facilities, and a thriving high-tech industry. Classic car conventions, colorful Cinco de Mayo parades, international bowling tournaments, and the world-famous Reno Air Races all help to keep demand for Reno vacation rentals buoyant all year round.

    Reno’s rich culture

    From starry nightclub lineups to lively rock’n’roll gigs, Reno’s cultural scene caters for all tastes. The Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts is one of the city’s most prestigious venues, as well as a distinctive architectural landmark. Its striking gold geodesic dome houses a dynamic program of Broadway musicals, dance, celebrity concerts, and comedy. The Reno Philharmonic Orchestra’s regular season of classical concerts and recitals runs from September through April, while summer brings open-air performances in Wingfield Park and Lake Tahoe. Tickets for these highly popular events usually sell out fast, so early booking is strongly recommended.

    Reno—from artworks to automobiles

    The Nevada Museum of Art is another of Reno’s architectural triumphs. In 2003, the institution moved from its former home into a spectacular purpose-built gallery, where over 2,000 artworks in the permanent collection are on show. Paintings, photographs, and sculptures are arranged thematically rather than historically, offering surprising new perspectives. Masterpieces of a different kind can be admired in the National Automobile Museum, a showcase for historic vehicles dating back to the late 19th century. The collection includes limos owned by Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, automobiles driven in famous movies, and examples of rare collectors’ items, including a gold-plated DeLorean and a one-off Phantom Corsair.

    Reno’s changing seasons

    Reno boasts an impressive sunshine record, with typically over 300 days a year, and low average rainfall. This pleasant climate puts Reno vacation rentals that are equipped for outdoor living at the top of most visitors’ wish lists. Barbecues, pools, patio heaters, and hot tubs are ideally suited to adapt to the changing seasons. Snow falls on the foothills of the Carson Range, part of the Sierra Nevada, usually between December through April, bringing exciting opportunities for winter sports just a few miles from downtown Reno vacation rentals.

    A safe haven for Reno wildlife

    The Animal Ark wildlife sanctuary combines a visitor attraction with a care facility for orphaned or injured wild animals. A scenic 25-mile drive from your downtown Reno vacation rental takes you north along Sun Valley; this route is fringed by Stanislaus National Forest and the Carson foothills as it winds its way into the surrounding mountains. The sanctuary mainly provides a safe home for native North American predators in enclosures that replicate their natural habitats. These resident animals, incapable of surviving independently in the wild, are playing an important role in educating people on the importance of environmental stewardship.
