Reno is know for it’s gambling and casinos Reno has a lot more to offer.  With its beautiful Riverwalk District, whitewater kayak park, popular events and easy access to  outdoor adventure, the city of Reno has come a long way  since its  mid-1800s beginning.

Originally a small town  known as Lakes Crossing that serviced westward travellers, the town enjoyed growth from railroad extensions, legalized casino gambling, liberal divorce laws and, eventually, economic diversification beyond gaming.
