More about Reno,a local travel guide
Reno, Nevada, or the "Biggest Little City in the World," is a hotbed for tourism because of its exciting gaming action, inexpensive hotels, good restaurants and array of outdoor activities. Reno is less than an hour from Lake Tahoe, which recently won the No. 1 spot in's Choice Destination Awards.

Most of Reno's casinos are located downtown, within walking distance of one another, along Virginia Street. This includes the heavy hitters like Circus Circus, the Eldorado, Silver Legacy and Harrah's. This makes it easy for visitors who want to fully experience the Reno gambling scene.

Just south a few miles is the Grand Sierra Resort, Peppermill and Atlantis casinos.
