Truckee River Walk, Reno

4.5
Enjoy views of the rushing water and downtown Reno as you stroll or bike the paved Truckee River Walk. Built in the 19th century to connect the California Trail and Virginia City (the early Reno), the historical pathway runs through the city and is lined with shaded pavilions and public art. You'll cross two bridges along the way. An island in Truckee River is home to Wingfield Park, a popular hangout spot for locals. Use the riverwalk to reach the park and access downtown sites without the hassle of traffic.

Where to stay in Reno

Since Reno's casinos want you to save your money for the blackjack table, they offer some very reasonable rates on their rooms. Even a stay in one of the amenity-rich resort- or spa-style casinos downtown can be quite affordable. Plenty of hotels, motels, inns, and lodges are scattered throughout town, though most lie in and around downtown. If you're planning to ski in the mountains west of town, staying near Interstate 80 can save a couple minutes on your commute. Accommodations in Reno generally remain easy to find, but the days before and after the popular Burning Man festival in the desert east of the city tend to see a bump in visitors. Consider booking ahead if your visit coincides with the festival.
