You purchase a wine glass for $20, which goes to charity. You then take a map of the River Walk which highlights each venue that is participating in the wine walk that month. You walk, sample wine and snacks, view art and enjoy the beautiful river.

This is a must do and no-cost adventure. The Truckee River runs through Reno and shops and residences surround the River. The River surrounding is literally an outdoor nature sanctuary within the town of Reno. Bring your camera, and experience the awesome outdoors along the Truckee River in Reno.

It is a beautiful well thought out feature with a great little park and great access to the river for adventurers and leisure swimmers. We have friends who live near by. Did I mention the great restaurants and bars along the walk? Also there are shops that rent tubes rafts kayaks.

Very nice and scenic. I have been to San Antonio River Walk several times. Reno walk is much more scenic and cleaner. Water was flowing nicely after a good rain. Don't miss it.

Was surprised at how many people were enjoying the River Walk and floating down the river on inner tubes. Festival tents in the park over the weekend. Fun, free place to visit

We rented bikes from a place called Squaw Bikes in Olympic Valley and rode 5 miles, up the bike trail that runs right next to the Truckee River, to Tahoe City then turned around and rode back. We absolutely loved this! Must be the most beautiful bike trail in the world. The trail was very family friendly and all abilities... More

The Truckee River is one of most scenic attributes of Reno, and the city has done a nice job making a family friendly open walking area along the banks of the river. You can spend a couple of relaxing hours walking up one side and back on the other. Take a break at a bench or in a grassy area.... More

We walked to the river walk from the casino Friday night. Place was hopping. A band was playing, people was dancing. Kids were swimming in the river. What a nice evening. Security was everywhere so we never felt unease. We are planning to go again Saturday. Try it, you will love it

We decided to visit the Riverwalk in downtown Reno yesterday. What a pleasant surprise. It was only about 9:30 a.m., but the area was bustling with children playing in the water, people walking their dogs and letting them swim in the stream, and folks like us, just strolling along the river, enjoying the cool breeze. It was clean. We saw... More
