Compare Car Rental in Reno

Reno, fondly called the “Biggest Little City in the World,” is second only to Las Vegas when it comes to its gaming industry. However, today, gaming is far from this city's primary attraction. You might head here expecting a party atmosphere but what you'll find is a lot more laid back - and surprising - than that. Book your Reno car rental in advance with Enjoy Travel for a hitch-free trip.

Guide to Reno

Geography

Reno is a part of the Greater Reno region in the American state of Nevada. In terms of size, it’s the state’s second-largest metropolitan area. It is situated in the Great Basin, meaning that it was once covered with wetlands. Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River are two major water sources near the city.

Climate in Reno

Winters are chilly, summers are hot, and it’s always dry and dusty in this northwestern city. Most of the annual rain falls between winter and spring so plan your visit for this window of time. If you time it right, you’ll arrive before the main tourist season begins and Reno gets crowded.

Culture

Once a hotspot for gamblers, Reno is now better known as a great base for outdoor activities.

Things to do in Reno

Follow a hiking trail

The Tom Cooke Trail is just one of many hiking trails that cut across the landscape near Reno. Most of them are simple enough, especially for beginners, and are ideal for family trips. Spend anywhere between a couple of hours and an entire day exploring the glorious outdoors. If you would like to try more challenging hikes, head towards the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Water activities at Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe, located about an hour from Reno, is the perfect place for an afternoon of splashing around in sparkling turquoise waters. Indulge yourself in the swimming, boating, and fishing you could want. There are even some ski resorts nearby, in case you’re in the mood for some winter sports.

Explore a modern museum

The central theme behind the artworks at the Nevada Museum of Art is summed up in the placard of the main exhibit – Altered Landscape: Photographs of a Changing Environment. As this text suggests, the museum, which happens to be the only Nevada museum accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), draws inspiration from the interactions between humans and the landscape.

Eating out in Reno

Casinos may not be the go-tos in Reno anymore, but the city still remembers its gaming heyday. Head to Atlantis Steakhouse, in the Atlantis Casino Resort, for a casino-themed dining experience. Past customers recommend the Chilean sea bass and Wagyu special. For some good old-fashioned pasta made by an authentic Italian team of chefs, drop by at Paolo’s Deli. If you’re health-conscious enough to want organic ingredients in your food, give the beef taco or grilled chicken at Laughing Planet Cafe a try. Great Full Gardens is another great restaurant that uses homegrown organic ingredients to add a special flavor to dishes like its teriyaki bowl.

Reno Transport

Airport

You’ll want to fly into Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO), and then take a shuttle to Reno.

Getting around

The city is serviced by multiple coach operators, including Greyhound and the Regional Transportation Committee of Washoe County. However, if you’re traveling with family or a group of friends, consider renting your own vehicle from a reputed rental car agency such as Enterprise, Budget, or Reno Tahoe Rental Car.
