Even though it's mostly known for gaming, Reno is a very outdoors and sports oriented city. This is reflected in many of the free things you can do in The Biggest Little City. If you want to stay outdoors, visit the Truckee River for several free activities and events including tubing at the Truckee River Whitewater Park or watching the annual Reno River Festival. If you want to stay out of the water and just take a walk, stay on the River Walk and check out various Burning Man art pieces given to the city or jump on a bike to enjoy the Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway that runs right through Downtown Reno. During these walks or bikes, you can see some of Reno's beautiful parks. If you are visiting in the summer and fall, don't miss Hot August Nights or the Great Reno Balloon Race, both of these popular festivals are some of the biggest in the area and most of the events are free.
