Reno Holidays Overview

 

With some 215,000 inhabitants, Reno is the fourth largest city in the state of Nevada. It is 35 km northeast of Lake Tahoe in the westernmost central part of this state. It usually cools down below 0 degrees Celsius on cold January nights and climbs to 33 degrees Celsius on the average. Occasionally however, high temperatures sore above 40 degrees. Precipitation is minimal in both rain and snowfall.
 
This city is most known for a host of gambling casinos. In addition to the downtown casinos, there have been several bars, nightclubs and restaurants creating a downtown nightlife in recent years. More than 75% of the local population is white and some 20% Latin American. There is a fairly good transportation system anchored by buses. The national Amtrak rail line runs through here and 2 airports also serve this city.
 
There are several venues for performing arts productions and concerts. Various minor league teams play in diverse sports disciplines. Three rivers attract a variety of water sportsmen and women here in the summer. Winter is also famous for ski resorts in the Lake Tahoe area. Tahoe is the biggest US alpine lake and second deepest in the country, at 501 metres depth.
 
Tahoe is situated at the border with California in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Though just a stones throw away, there is much more precipitation here, principally snow. In addition to skiing and warm weather water sports, Tahoe has several historic mansions that attract visitors. Casinos also abound here, as in Reno.
 
There is evidence that prehistoric peoples inhabited the area thousands of years ago. The first pioneers settled the area in the 1850s, when Gold was discovered nearby. Since the 1930s gambling has provided a major share of the tourist boom and helps fuel the local economy.
