A sea of casinos in the high desert of the Sierra Nevadas, Reno capitalizes on gaming and nightlife.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reno: Nevada State Museum (in Carson City) and Donner Memorial State Park and Emigrant Trail Museum (in Truckee). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Automobile Museum, try your luck at Casino at the Eldorado, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Truckee River Walk.

South Lake Tahoe

High in the Sierra Nevada mountains on the shore of one of America’s most scenic lakes, South Lake Tahoe captures the spirit of the outdoors and serves as a hub for tourism activities surrounding the lake.

The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Emerald Bay State Park, explore the different monuments and memorials at Genoa Cemetery, steep yourself in history at Vikingsholm, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at South Lake Brewing Co.
