The city limits are nestled against mountains that offer endless outdoor recreation, cradling magnificent Lake Tahoe. In addition to the area's spectacular beauty, Reno-Tahoe offers an extraordinary mix of history and culture, world-class ski and golf resorts, 24-hour gaming and entertainment, a mild climate with four distinct seasons, a healthy, diverse economy, and community spirit as strong as ever.
