Reno is a high desert landscape set against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  Reno has experienced an economic growth spurt that has rebooted it with boutique hotels, craft breweries and a thriving art scene. The area is an outdoor lover’s paradise with hiking, mountain biking, rafting and more just minutes from downtown. Lake Tahoe (located just 30 minutes from downtown Reno) is known for the clarity of its water and the panoramic views of the surrounding mountains on all sides.
