The Reno Arts District and the Reno Riverwalk is located in the heart of Downtown Reno. This area is home to great restaurants and bars, shopping areas and a walkway along the Truckee River. Along the river, you will come upon several pieces of Burning Man art given to the city and there are places to stop and watch the water and the various birds that like to nest here. Walk around and visit the local bars, restaurants and coffee shops including The Jungle coffee shop and Sierra Tap House. The central point of the area is Wingfield Park: a park on an island in the middle of the river. There are an amphitheater and access to the river as well as a few swimming holes.
