10 Best Casino Resorts in Reno and Sparks

Reno is completely different from its neighbor down south, but it still has all the best gaming options with one difference...it's a lot less expensive 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.

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.
