So, where is Reno Nevada? Nevada is a state in the USA, on the western side. Reno is in the northern part of the state, alongside the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Carson City, the capital of the state, is a few miles south. While Las Vegas, is in southern Nevada.
The first thing you might want to do if you are planning a visit to Nevada’s capital is to look for a hotel in Reno, Nevada’s downtown. Located on the historic Pearl Street, right in the heart of downtown, some of the most popular and elegant hotels are located here, such as the Marina Hotel and Casino Resort. These highly-regarded establishments are often among the most expensive and beautiful ones, in the state, making them a prime choice for people on the move or on business trips. While other places in Nevada are more family oriented and offer more moderate pricing, some locations in Reno really stand out for their exquisite beauty and luxurious amenities.
A few of the most notable and well-respected facilities that are found in the downtown area include the Reno Miracle, an indoor children’s spa; the Grand Nevada Center, a state-of-the-art performing arts center; the Reno Renaissance Center, a five-star business hub; and the Cedar Point Ampitheater & Casino, a professional sports facility where celebrities such as Professional Baseball player, Rickey Henderson and actor, Denholm Elliott has graced its playing fields. Other facilities that might interest you include the Aquarium at Paradise Lakes, a beautiful natural water park that has various exhibits and activities; the Reno Renaissance Center, an impressive historic structure that houses a theater, convention center and several indoor gala events; and the Reno Art Museum, an impressive collection of art works featuring contemporary and traditional styles by local artists. You can also explore the nightlife in the area, a lot of which is located in the downtown area. The Rave Buffet, the legendary buffets catering to some of Nevada’s hottest attractions, is a popular nightspot for locals.
For travelers interested in culture and history, then you should really consider Nevada’s historic Las Vegas Strip, home to the world’s biggest and best hotels, shows, and casinos. For residents of the metro area, there are numerous places to go sightseeing and experience the city and its people. The “strip” is best known for its high-end shops and restaurants and for its nighttime glitz and glamor. The only downside to the strip is that it is located so close to the airport and because of its proximity it is often congested and polluted-with all the traffic-but there is still so much to see and do in this unique environment. A perfect example of this is the Route 35 connector, a six-mile long pedestrian walkway between downtown and the Las Vegas Strip.
