Lovely sights, a clean area with flowers and a place you must see if you are in Reno. There are many famous casino hotels: Circus Circus, Harras among others.

Great idea,but dirty and seedy. Tons of homeless, no shops open restaurants practically empty and we were there on a Saturday summer afternoon. It is the courthouse area, so maybe it is busier during the week.

What a nice Riverwalk. We like what they did to it. The Riverwalk is a nice getaway from downtown Reno....especially if you are not here to gamble. We didn't walk the entire length but if you run or want a nice walk to get away, this is it. The River was low when we visit and we didn't see any... More

The city of Reno is doing a great job getting this area spruced up. It's enjoyable to walk along the river and relax in the city. There are now some good places to eat. Keep it up Reno!

Wonderfully safe in the daylight! Stay away after the sun goes down. Take a moment and read about the history of the Truckee River http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truckee_River. If you have a chance, get out to Pyramid Lake!!!

The river walk is very refreshing, especially if you get wet! Otherwise there is often concerts and roller derby at various places along the way.

The river walk may not be the same as in San Antonio, but it's a lovely piece of nature in the middle of everything. Fantastic artwork, too! I really like the butterfly that turns in the wind, sparkly and lovely.

Take the river walk west away from downtown and soon you are in a more relaxed, residential area. Joggers and power walkers are generally considerate and everyone makes room for open another. A peaceful to spend 1/2 an hour or more. The mile markers help those who are keeping track of their distance and time. Best enjoyed in late spring... More

Lovely to walk along the river. Well kept and easy to find in the heart of Reno. We understand from the locals that the water was brown from sediment and also quite low, still very pleasant to watch all the birds enjoying themselves in the water, nice to stroll along, enjoying the views.
