The rush of the water through Downtown Reno while your walking is so breath taking. Sometimes during the year you could walk across the river at Virginia Street because the river is lower than the rocks.

It was nice walking around this area. A little disappointed when we couldn't find the "Rock" figures. Parking wasn't easy either. Homeless people hanging out asking for handouts.

If you're visiting Reno, take some time away from the glitz and tackiness of the strip. Grab a cup of coffee and head to the river. Wonderful views, art galleries & local restaurants are all along the walk downtown. It's the best part of downtown Reno for my money, which I didn't lose in a casino.

Explored the Riverwalk one day and then ran alongside it the next. Fantastic running path, beautiful views, and the water is just gorgeous. Met friendly people along the path and found some great places to take pictures!

The Truckee River runs right through downtown Reno. They have a wonderful river walk and if you are able to do a mile you will end up at Idlewilde Park where you can see the Reno Rose gardens and the Nevada State Law enforcement memorial.

This is a lovely walk along the Truckee River. Unfortunately, the homeless have decided that this is their domain and their presence can cause disappointment. There are multiple restaurants and shops, and the area is quaint. The City needs to address this issue, but seems to ignore it. There's no money for schools but there's money for art, and of...

started from the car muse. and ended maybe less than a mile from start to ending. some places are not too much to look, but it goes through a park. a lot of flowers, ducks swimming, and believe it people fishing. easy walk to escape your losses at the casinos.

I'd been to Reno years ago and the downtown area was just okay. On this past trip, I was amazed at the beautiful River Walk that winds for miles through the downtown/central area. Scenic parks, places to sit and watch people fish, beautiful flower beds and planters and artwork abound. You can view gorgeous homes across the river. There are... More
