Flights And Sights

Introduction to Reno

Discover the Biggest Little City in the Word with American Airlines flights to Reno. There is a wide range of things to do in Reno, from trying your luck in casinos to whitewater rafting on the Truckee River. Reno is a friendly town that, while often compared to Las Vegas, has its very own unique personality. For one thing, it's located tantalizingly near Lake Tahoe, where you'll find an abundance of skiing and mountain activities. In the winter, a sunset sleigh ride and dinner is a romantic way to see the mountains, and in the summer, a cruise on Lake Tahoe's Emerald Bay is a must. Flying to Reno and experiencing it all is easy, especially when you have a game plan before you depart.

Things To Do In Reno

One of the most popular activities in Reno is a tour of the city's casinos. There are a few bigger, newer casinos and resorts located south of downtown, with most of the "old school" Reno casinos located in downtown itself. And if you want to snap a photo under the city's famous "Biggest Little City" arched sign, take a stroll down Virginia Street. A recent renovation of downtown had added a number of significant restaurants, wine bars, pubs, coffee houses, theaters and nightclubs. In the heart of this area you'll find West Street Market, with a variety of restaurants, shops and artists' booths.

Downtown is also home to the beautiful Truckee River. The more active-minded will enjoy exploring the Truckee River Trail, with 14 miles of bike trails. You can also choose to go whitewater rafting or kayaking at the Truckee River Whitewater Park, located between First and Arlington Streets.

Continue your active pursuits in nearby Lake Tahoe, where you can ski, snowboard and enjoy other outdoor adventures at over a dozen resorts. This romantic destination has also been the site of more than one marriage proposal -- many during a Lake Tahoe Carriage Ride.

Of all the things to do in Reno, one of our favorites is taking an afternoon just to wander through the revitalized downtown, popping into a wine bar or boutique that might catch your eye, and ending with an ice cream while watching the Truckee River rush by.
