Top Things To Do in Reno

If you can’t find anything to do in Reno, then you are going to struggle to find things to do in other cities in the country.

Reno is one of the entertainment capitals of Nevada, and even though it has less acclaim than Las Vegas, there’s plenty to do and see within the city. Here are a few ways you can kill some time in Reno.

Everyone has their favorite casino in Reno. Some claim to have the “loosest slots” and others specialize in bingo or sports betting. Regardless of what type of casino appeals to you, here are some choices you may want to consider visiting.

You might want to check out the Peppermill in Reno. The Peppermill is not only a casino. It is also a hotel featuring 1,621 luxury rooms and 600 suites. Oh, and did we mention that the Peppermill also has a full-service spa and salon? The Peppermill staff hopes to provide enough restaurants, boutiques, and other amenities to keep you from having to leave their resort for anything.

You also may consider visiting the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino. If the 80,000 square foot casino doesn’t keep you busy, you could also check out the concert schedule. They bring in top-notch musicians and comedians.

Finally, the El Dorado Resort Casino offers packages that include a suite and spa services. The concierge will help you book a golf excursion, and visitors can join the One Club to earn lots of perks while gambling.

Fleischmann Planetarium
For those who aren’t fans of gambling, there are plenty of other attractions in Reno. Consider taking the kids to the Fleischmann Planetarium. They offer a variety of shows for different age groups. Choose from “Legends of the Northern Sky” or “Touch the Stars.” The Planetarium is closed on Mondays, and it costs less than $10 per person to visit.

Nevada Historical Society
Nevada has a fascinating history. Who would have thought that a state covered by desert would hold one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the country? Learn more about the history of gaming in America as you visit this unique museum.

Mayberry Park
Perhaps you need to take a break from the bright lights and glamor of Reno and escape to nature. There are plenty of outdoor spaces surrounding Reno. Consider visiting Mayberry Park. Go fishing in the Truckee River or float down the river in a tube while you watch for birds. Mayberry Park is also a great place to go biking or picnicking, or it is a great place to lay back and look at the stars. Take a break from the city and instead spend time in nature. While you are out there, try not to think about all the money you lost when visiting the Peppermill or the El Dorado.

McKinley Arts and Culture Center
Located in a former school, the McKinley Arts and Culture Center houses two art galleries. It is also the location for many popular arts and crafts workshops. Do you need to rent a space in Reno for an event? Check out McKinley’s website for prices and availability.
