The city of Reno, NV, sits east of Lake Tahoe and north of Carson City at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Serving as the seat of Washoe County, Reno is home to an estimated population of almost 250,000 people, spread across a land area of 103 square miles. It’s Nevada’s third most populated city.
Reno was founded in 1868 and incorporated in 1903, eventually earning its famous nickname, “The Biggest Little City in the World.” It became the country’s gambling capital until the late 1950s when Las Vegas took the title. Today, Reno remains popular for its many casinos and close proximity to ski resorts. The city holds several annual events to bring more tourism to the region, including Hot August Nights, Street Vibrations and The Great Reno Balloon Race.
