About Reno, NV

Known as “The Biggest Little City in the World,” Reno is as much an outdoor recreation mecca as it is a casino city. It’s about 450 miles from Las Vegas, but it’s considered a gaming and nightlife destination in its own right with several casinos and showplaces. It truly shines, however, with an abundance of year-round recreation – from snow skiing to mountain biking. Reno is also home to Nevada’s oldest university, the University of Nevada – Reno.
