Reno, a gambling city at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, has earned itself the nickname of "The Biggest Little City in the World" - a tribute well deserved.

Flights to Reno

Reno flights touch down at Reno-Tahoe International Airport, the second busiest airport in all of Nevada. It serves all major airlines and has all the modern amenities a traveler could require, such as bars, cafes, and Internet access. The Mountain House Diner is a fabulous establishment highly recommended. There is no shortage of slot machines to feed as well. Shuttle services from the airport connect with flights to Reno and transfer you straight to your accommodation. They pick up outside door D at the north end of baggage claim. The public bus service that can take you to the center of town picks up right next to the shuttle express.

Reno Weather

Summertime in Reno is hot, so take a hat. Temperatures regularly reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit with a strong wind. The winter months are much cooler, and although rain is rare, to some people's surprise, when they book bargain Reno flights, they find that snow does fall regularly around December and January. The ideal time to visit is either late spring or early fall, when the temperatures are still very warm, but are more manageable, and there is an almost certain guarantee of dry weather.

Getting Around Reno

You can book low fare deals for flights to Reno, and the good news is the air ticket is not the only cheap form of travel you will experience during your trip. The RTC Ride is Reno's transit system and serves tourists brilliantly for shopping, dining, and gambling excursions throughout the city. You will find fares are very cheap and, better still, one ticket covers multiple rides within a certain time span. You can pick up an all day pass for a bargain $4, a remarkable value. All the city's major casinos have a bus stop directly outside, and Reno flights are met at the airport by fleets of taxis, which are also just as easy to come by downtown.

Reno attractions

Flights to Reno are often taken with gambling in mind, but there is much more to this fabulous city. You cannot fail to notice the iconic landmark: the Reno Arch. This has become one of the most photographed locations in the US, as you will probably see on your own Reno flights. Legends within the Sparks Marina is also a real treat for shoppers. Other Reno attractions include:

  • Nevada Museum of Art with interactive exhibits for everyone
  • Truckee River White Water Park for some fantastic Kayaking or canoeing
  • National Automobile Museum with more than 200 vehicles on display
  • Animal Ark full of wildlife you simply would not expect to see in the desert
  • Lake Tahoe, a scenic delight and great place to cool off

Reno When to Go

Summers are hot in Reno, with daytime temperatures rising to the 90s and sometimes triple digits. High season in Reno is June through August, with the month of July dedicated to Artown, a celebration of over 400 events that brings together some of the world’s most innovative artists. For July, Winfield Park is dedicated to visual and performing art, with concerts, theater, dance, and exhibits. In November and December, the city hosts the Spirit of Artown, a winter arts and cultural festival with an avant-garde twist. In December, the downtown ice-skating rink opens, adding to the festivity of the downtown scene.

Spring and fall are great times to visit Reno, as there are fewer crowds and milder temperatures. In May, when snowmelt courses down the Truckee River, Winfield Park and the Truckee River Whitewater Park launch the paddle-sport season with the Reno River Festival. In September, the town hosts the Great Reno Balloon Race, which attracts tens of thousands of visitors annually. During these shoulder-season months, look for discounts at hotels and restaurants.

January and February see cold temperatures (30s and 40s during the day) and snowy weather.  In February, Reno’s casino culture shines, with several Latin Dance events, including the Bachata Festival and Salsa Congress. While Reno’s entertainment moves indoors for the winter months, locals and tourists use Reno as a base for ski excursions to nearby Lake Tahoe. There are 18 resorts in the area that cater to alpine skiers, snowboarders, Nordic skiers, and inner-tubers. The Reno-Tahoe area gets an average of 44 feet of snow in the winter, so bundle up.
