Start a tour of Reno at the Nevada Historical Society’s “Biggest Little City in the World” exhibit, which focuses on Reno's interesting history. Once you have a better sense of this Nevada city and its surrounding area, it’s time to explore the outdoors. There are plenty of hiking trails with epic views of the city once you reach the piqué — we like the Hunter Creek and Mount Rose trails. After a hike, your stomach will likely be growling, so stop in The Nugget casino to devour the Awful Awful burger. While you’re here, play a few games; after all, Reno was once the gambling capital of the U.S. After lunch, hope on a bike to see more of the city — both Sierra Adventures or Adventures of Reno offer bike rentals. Sierra Rentals is located downtown, near the Truckee River trail. Adventures of Reno also offers sightseeing tours, and the popular motorcycle, ATV or snowmobile tours. After a full day of sightseeing, we recommend swinging by Atlantis Casino Resort Spa for dinner at Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Bistro Napa. Check out the eatery's Social Hour in which small plates, sliders, flatbread pizzas, wines by the glass and cocktails (even specialty drinks and call brands) are served (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.). Of course, you can always dine a bit later and have a romantic meal after the rush dies down.
