I guess you are not a member of AAA? They have wonderful free maps...if you aren't a member .you might be able to pay them, I think all offices carry them. I don't know if the maps are just for members, which I believe, for the basic road service, is $57/yr.
Otherwise, you can get them in Reno. Often chain drug stores carry local maps. We used to be able to get them at service stations....i haven't noticed if that is still the case.Edited: 1:28 pm, July 09, 2012
Writing to one of the tourist bureaus in Reno, Lake Tahoe, or Sacramento could certainly produce a free map.
I never thought about AAA. I am a member and will try them first. otherwise, I will try one of the tourist bureaus. Thanks for the suggestions.
AAA is your best bet. Tourist bureaus give very simple maps.
Your AAA office will (or should) have maps from all over. In my opinion, they are the best maps for traveling . For California they have a map of the whole state and then more detailed ones for each section and the major cities. Do try them.
We have our maps from AAA, however, when we arrive at Reno Airport, I grab a handfull of maps and brochures from the shelves in baggage claim. There are coupons around the outside of the LT map, good for activities and restaurants.
What does LT stand for?
LT = Lake Tahoe.
Just called AAA. They are sending me the maps, CA,Nevada, Lake Tahoe-Reno by mail. Thanks for the suggestion.
Finally I get something for the money I pay them every year. I have a 2004 Subaru and nothing ever goes wrong with it but I still keep my roadside assistance just in case. Thinking about it, I have used it twice in Orlando - one time for locking my keys inside and one time for a rental car dead battery. So I guess it does come in handy.
Half the fun of traveling is looking at maps and planning your trip. You'll have a great time.
