Reno Tahoe’s got a lot more going on than your average mountain town, from kayaking on the Truckee River to the world’s tallest climbing gym wall, to peak-bagging hikes and a walk among the growing urban arts scene. Hop into an inflatable kayak and take your pick of mild or wild—either way, the scenery is the snow-capped Sierra.
Next, test your mettle on the World’s Tallest Climbing Wall at Whitney Peak Hotel, named one of the best hotel gyms in the country by Outside magazine. Hikers have just one dilemma: all this outstanding terrain, which trail do we choose? Hike to a hidden waterfall in Reno, or bag a heart-pumping peak (10,776 feet) offering dramatic views of Lake Tahoe (learn more about Reno Tahoe’s top hikes).
You can always keep it casual with a stroll along the Truckee River into downtown Reno’s emerging mural and arts scene, including the new Sculpture Garden in Bicentennial Park. Or head to an event like the Friday night Reno Street Food, and possibly join one of Reno Tahoe’s (in)famous pub crawls. One destination, loads of adventures: Reno Tahoe packs a fully loaded fall punch!
