  1. Hiking: Reno offers more than just a hike through the downtown casinos! There are many great opportunities to get outside for free and take a stroll through beautifully maintained trails hidden within the city itself. Some of the most popular trails are Hunter Creek Trail, which is known for the waterfall at the end, and Bartley Ranch Regional Park which has several trails to choose from.
  2. Aces Ballpark: enjoy a night of baseball with a General Admission Ticket for only $8 to the 9,000+ seat ballpark. Or, take in a game with the newly formed Reno 1868 USL soccer team who play in the same arena.
  3. Nevada Museum of Art: located downtown, the Nevada Museum of Art features stunning exhibits that change often and offer something for everyone. These price tags can’t be beat: $10 for general admission, $8 for students and seniors, $1 for children 6 to 12 years old and free for children 5 and under. The view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains from the rooftop is an exhibit all by itself!

Reno is more than meets the eye and offers great opportunities to explore and expand your horizons without breaking the bank.
