Welcome to Reno

Up-and-coming urban hotspot with diverse real estate options and plenty of community events
If you enjoy an active lifestyle, water sports, fine dining, and luxury shopping experiences, Reno is the place to be. With plenty of nightlife, regional events, and legal gaming, Reno residents have endless upscale entertainment options. You’ll never be bored in these up-and-coming, trendsetting neighborhoods.
Thanks to its Gold Rush history, Reno has a decidedly Western American flare. Per the Reno government website, the town originated because it was the best crossing point of the Truckee River, which flows from Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake. Gold miners rushed through the area in the 1840s and 50s.
Reno was officially established in 1858, and the University of Nevada was founded there in 1874. Since then, the university has been Reno’s cultural and educational backbone.
Reno's nickname is the "Biggest Little City in the World" because it’s a small city with a tremendous number of cosmopolitan amenities and luxury experiences one usually only finds in larger cities like New York City or Los Angeles.

Things to Do

According to Luxury Hotel Guru, the most luxurious gambling experiences in town are found at Atlantis Casino Resort & Spa, WorldMark Reno, and Whitney Peak Hotel. But there are a host of outdoor experiences around Reno, too. For sun worshippers, boaters, water skiers, and wakeboarders, Lake Tahoe is just a short drive away.
