Reno is quite different from its large and glitzy neighbor down south, but it still has all the best gaming options with one difference. It's more affordable to play in the Biggest Little City. Reno's downtown casino resorts offer all gaming amenities including luxurious rooms, spas and pools, award-winning dining options and family fun all within a few miles of each other and the airport.
You can still bring your family to Reno's casinos. Head to the Grand Sierra Resort with its indoor and outdoor activities including miniature golf and shopping. Circus Circus in Downtown has a fun Midway and regular circus acts for the kids. Adults will get a kick out of the pool area at the GSR and the fun dining all over the city.
For anyone looking to get some downtime, the Peppermill hotel and casino just south of Reno has an excellent spa that recieved a Reader's Choice Award from SpaFinder. After relaxing, the Peppermill's bars are just as good.
For more serious gamers, visit the Silver Legacy or the Atlantis for their poker tournaments or the Peppermill for its great slots and live music. Any place you go with have great food including the buffet or Brews Brothers at the Eldorado and Harrah's Steak House. Visit the Nugget in Sparks for their famous Oyster Bar or Rotisserie Buffet.
