Guide To Reno
Fun and entertainment in Reno abounds for the entire family, as well as for solo travelers, couples, and groups. From 24-7 gaming to outdoor adventures and nights out on the town, Reno 's range of entertainment aims to offer something for everyone.

Though known for its casinos, Reno is a great town for families with children to enjoy together. In fact, the Circus Circus hotel embraces that very hope, offering games, clowns, and circus acts on The Midway Stage, with casino gaming found below: a concept that keeps parents and kids close at all times, and a promise that no one will be bored during their stay. Indeed, at Circus Circus, you could win a stuffed teddy bear for the kids one minute and hit the jackpot the next for the entire family.

But no matter where you choose to stay, family fun in Reno is nearby, such as at the Downtown River Walk or at Reno's Boomtown Family Fun Center, a family hang-out offering indoor miniature golf, a Ferris wheel, and a lovely antique carousel to admire and ride. Families, friends, and truly anyone looking for a relaxing day away from the lights and ringing slot machines, can find plenty of distraction at one of these spots, not to mention at the Nevada Museum of Art, Animal Ark, and Victorian City in sister-city, Sparks .

What else is there do in Reno ? How about watching a play? Not the be missed by thespians, critics, and fans of The Bard, the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival is an annual event celebrating Shakespeare's celebrated plays. Held July through August, the festival highlights comedies and tragedies, romances and histories. Find out what's playing at this year's festival and reserve tickets to experience the language, art, and genius of William Shakespeare. Other popular annual events include the Great Reno Balloon Races, the Brews & Blues Festival in June, and the Nugget Rib Cook-Off in September, which offers concerts, arts and crafts, and a national rib-cooking competition.

But of course, entertainment in Reno is not limited to the daylight hours. Indeed, when the sun goes down, Reno remains a vibrant, fun-filled place to be for all. You'll find that nightlife in Reno can easily bridge sunset to sunrise, with a variety of shows, concerts, night clubs, and bars and pubs to choose from.

Naturally, gambling in Reno is one of its main draws. Slots, blackjack, poker, roulette, and more games are offered at all casinos, including the Atlantis Casino, Eldorado, the Silver Legacy, Reno Hilton, and the Peppermill. In Reno , you'll find more than 25 casinos to visit, plus 10 more operating closer to Lake Tahoe . Gamblers can try their luck at table and card games, as well as at hotel-casino giveaways, specials, and daily prizes.

The Peppermill, located about three miles from downtown Reno , offers guests free daily chances to win up to $10,000 in cash with its PepperMillions game. And for those who wish to pursue old-fashioned games, Harrah's Hotel and Casino has recently brought back bingo -- a welcome return after 18 years of absence. A major part of its tourist appeal, gambling in Reno comes in a variety of forms, including year-round sports betting, making it a fun and exciting way to past the time day or night.

Gambling however is not the only way to enjoy Reno 's nightlife. Cabaret shows and comedy acts, as well as live bands are all waiting to entertain audiences nightly. Dance and groove the night away at one Reno 's exciting clubs, such as the Metropolis, featuring five dance rooms mixing hip-hip, house and techno, reggae and retro, and jazz and jazz-acid tunes.

You'll find that Reno 's hotels strive to keep their guests entertained all day long and on-site. Harrah's Reno for example, features free summer concerts at The Plaza, a 62,000-square-foot outdoor auditorium with room for 1,400 people. Summer shows start at 8pm . Another example is the Silver Legacy, which regularly books celebrities throughout the calendar year, and for those who venture to Lake Tahoe at night, Caesars Tahoe is home to the 1,600-seat Circus Maximus, which features famous entertainers year-round. A Planet Hollywood is also located at this resort-casino, bringing even more starlight to an already illuminated vacation spot.

But of course, for every person who wishes to experience non-stop excitement, there is the person who just wants to hang out with friends and unwind. For these folks, a quiet pub might be the ticket and Brew Brothers Pub has proven a popular choice, with its local brews, cocktails, and live music. Located in the Eldorado Hotel and Casino, the pub is within walking distance of all downtown casinos, and along with Reno 's other sports bars, lounges, and pubs (like the Great Basin Brewing Company), the Brew Brothers Pub is open until the wee hours -- helping to welcome in the morning and a new day of fun.

Clearly, and not surpassingly, entertainment in Reno is not lacking. For families on vacation, spur-of-the-moment visitors, and tourists from around the world, Reno and nearby Lake Tahoe combine to offer a good, and at-times starry, selection of games and gaming, concerts and shows, dining and dancing, and more.
