Reno/Tahoe Local Area Information

With the breathtaking scenery of the Sierra Nevada surrounding the region in every direction, it is no wonder more than 300,000 people make the Reno-Tahoe area their home and why more than 5,000,000 people visit every year.

The geography ranges from high desert hills to valleys covered with deciduous and evergreen trees. A river flows casually through the heart of the city and among an eclectic mix of stately manors, quaint churches, sleek high rises, city parks, and casinos.

The city limits are nestled against mountains that offer endless outdoor recreation, cradling magnificent Lake Tahoe. In addition to the area's spectacular beauty, Reno-Tahoe offers an extraordinary mix of history and culture, world-class ski and golf resorts, 24-hour gaming and entertainment, a mild climate with four distinct seasons, a healthy, diverse economy, and community spirit as strong as ever. Whether or not you have visited Reno-Tahoe recently, you're in for a wonderful experience!


Business casual clothing is appropriate for most Reno venues. Be sure to keep a jacket handy as the weather is usually cool during the month of October.
