Nevada - An International Show Capitol - Statewide!
Proclaiming itself as the "biggest little city in the world," Reno, Nevada is situated
on I-80 near the California border, is a smaller version of Las Vegas, with miles
of gleaming slot machines and poker tables, along with tacky wedding chapels and
quickie divorce courts (the two go together we guess). Reno may not be much to look
at as a city but its setting – at the foot of the snowcapped Sierra Nevada, with
the Truckee River winding through the center – is outstanding. All of the casinos
are located downtown, along Virginia Street on both sides of the railroad tracks.
Nevada's legendary Burning Man Festival (featured on our events page) is celebrated
in a temporary, vehicle-free community known as Black Rock City, located a ways out
in the Black Rock Desert. The festival takes on a different theme each year, always
with a strong emphasis on spontaneity and mass participation. An exhilarating range
of performances, happenings and art installations culminates in the burning of a
giant human effigy on the final Saturday.
Reno ( with its mountain neighbor of Lake Tahoe) is an area of much more than slot
machines and blackjack tables. They've got tall mountains and flat deserts, snow
in the winter and sunshine in the summer, major department stores and mom and pop
shops. Whatever it is you want to do, you can do it all in Reno, Nevada area of the
United States. Visit Reno/Tahoe

Perhaps the best-known unique Nevada landmark is the impressive Hoover Dam in Boulder

receives millions of visitors from all over the world each year. See More!
