From the early days as a town frequented by gold and silver miners to a modern-day Mecca for gambling, Reno has long been home to those seeking to make a quick fortune and has grown into a bustling world-class city. Built on the banks of the Truckee River and bordering the famous Nevada mountain ranges and deserts, Reno is surrounded stunning scenery. While the major attraction for many visitors to Reno is the city's glitzy casinos, there is much more to the city, including attractions and activities which cater to a broad range of interests. Go mountain biking and kayaking in the summer or skiing at nearby mountains during winter. For car enthusiasts, Reno has one attraction that is not to be missed. Located in the city centre, on the south bank of the river, the National Automobile Museum is home to over 200 vintage cars, many of which are extremely rare vehicles, not displayed anywhere else in the USA. If you wish to experience the thrill of Reno's Casinos, check out Circus Circus, Atlantis, Eldorado and Silver Legacy. Venture to Wild Island, just west of Reno, where you will find water slides and large swimming pools, as well as loads of rides and a mini-golf course, perfect for a day of fun and games.

The tallest peak in the area, this mountain offers spectacular views of Reno, the nearby deserts and Lake Tahoe, which is just a short drive further south.
