Things To Do, In & Around Reno, This Fall!Reno In The Fall: There’s Nothing Like It <3
We can all agree that anytime of year is a great time to reside in or visit Reno. There’s so much to see and do, with friendly people, exciting activities, and breathtaking views, everywhere you look. But there’s just something extra-special about this time of year, a season that the majority of Americans call, ‘Favorite’; The weather is nice, nature becomes extra-lovely, and the mass amount of holidays and seasonal traditions, are by far the best! From football and crockpot meals, to warm and cozy everything, Fall is a great time to explore your city, even if you’ve lived here forever!
Grab some friends, your spouse, or the whole family and take some time to relax, reconnect, and appreciate everything this season has to offer.
Here are some ideas of ways to spend time this Fall, including some great events, going on around town:

*** Enjoy The Nice Weather ***
Reno Tahoe has no shortage of beauty, whether it’s mountains, lakes, parks, and trails, we’ve got it all! Camp, hike, swim, ski, boat, climb, and take lots of photos as you go!
- Lake Tahoe
Lake Tahoe’s water is so clear it takes your breath away. On a calm day, a boat on its surface appears to be floating in mid-air. Huge granite boulders are visible 30, 50, even 70 feet below.
- The Mountains
The mountains that surround Lake Tahoe are more than 9,000 feet in elevation, with tremendous hikes and endless mountain-bike rides. Squaw Valley and Heavenly Resort offer plenty to do, with tram or gondola rides to their upper mountains, which include pools, zip lines and other attractions.
- Emerald Bay State Park
"Spectacular in every season, this is Lake Tahoe's signature view: teardrop-shaped Emerald Bay, dotted at its center with a single island, on which sits a stone teahouse. Hidden in the trees on the shoreline of Emerald Bay is Vikingsholm Castle, one of the finest examples of Scandinavian rockwork and architecture in North America.”
**((Be sure to take plenty of photos at Vikingsholm Castle))
