Reno offers a myriad of adventures. Outdoor family activities are on the doorstep of town: Lake Tahoe, 18 ski resorts, hundreds of mountain biking and hiking trails, countless lakes, perfect for fishing and boating, and the Truckee River flowing through downtown Reno. 

Reno embodies the spirit of Nevada and the Old West, minutes away from Virginia City and the State Capitol, Carson City. The unique nightlife differs from anything you can find in the state with a wide range of emerging restaurants, craft breweries, collegiate and AAA sporting events. 

There's no shortage of annual events in the area: Reno Air Races, Reno Rodeo, Reno-Tahoe Open, Balloon Races, Hot August Nights, Street Vibrations and the world-famous Rib Cook-off. There are countless year-round recreational/competitive events in the area; cycling, running, skiing and triathlons to name a few. Northern Nevada is home to world-class hunting, fishing and golfing, all within easy driving of town. All of these making Reno an ideal place to raise a family.
