Truckee River Walk, Reno

#3 of 22 in Historic Sites in Nevada
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. Put Truckee River Walk into our Reno family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    This is such a beautiful place to walk and take in the beauty of nature among the neon lights and towering casinos. A calming escape.  more »

    Fun place to take a walk. Kids & dogs swimming in the cold river. Unlike some of downtown Reno River Walk was clean, safe & scenic. Take a walk & enjoy  more »

    This walk along the Truckee is a wonderful thing to do in Reno. The flowers and the landscaping make the walk even more scenic.  more »

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.
