Christina Nellemann, Reno and Tahoe Local Expert

About Christina

Christina Nellemann

Christina has lived in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area since she was a baby. A first-generation Nevadan, her Danish parents instilled in her an intense love of travel and the wild, rugged outdoors of the Western U.S. She spends her time hiking, camping, biking and kayaking in the mountains around her home, and snorkeling and boating in Lake Tahoe. Christina loves to visit the neighboring states of California, Oregon, Utah and Arizona but has traveled around the world including to Japan, Fiji, Turkey and Ecuador.  

When she's not traveling or living outdoors, Christina is a graphic and web designer, writer and blogger. 

Special Interests

Christina knows a lot about:

  • Burning Man
  • Camping (I do it in style – in a teardrop trailer)
  • Packing light

Christina's Special Recommendations for Reno and Tahoe

Christina says, "Don't leave Lake Tahoe without visiting Emerald Bay or having the sweet potato fries at Burger Me in Truckee.".
