Drinking Outside? (& Peppermill v. Downtown)

Hi,

I'm just wondering if drinking outside is permitted in Reno as how it is, sort of, in Vegas...

Also, since I'm already posting... I was really wanting to stay at the Peppermill but after finding out the resort is isolated I'm not so sure. I want to be able to walk around and explore some but from everything I looked at online I only really want to stay at the Peppermill, but certainly don't want to have to drive at all until I'm leaving... Any arguments to help me decide?

Thanks.

While walking from the Peppermill to the Reno "strip" is like walking from the MGM Grand to the Wynn in distance, there is NOTHING in between. You would definitely not be able to walk down Virginia St. with a open container (unless you were drinkiing something is a Big Gulp cup). Take a cab ride downtown or a city bus....it isn't more than $10 each way.

However, once downtown, you used to probably get away from walking to one casino to the next with a beer in your hand, but now with a few of the closures, you probably can't. The Silver Legacy/Cirucs Circus/El Do are connected inside so you can do that. On the other hand, Cal Neva and Harrahs are across the street. That is about it other than the Sands which a block away.

If you want a superior room and "resort," I would stay at the Peppermill and take a taxi a few nights.

Sadly Reno isn't like Vegas were you can walk around outside with alcohol. The only exceptions that I'm aware of is when they have street fair events, like farmers market in Victorian square, or the beer festival. But as mentioned prior, when downtown the 3 casinos are all connected via walkways and I have been able to take my drinks with me through all the casinos without any

I strongly recommend staying at the peppermill and then taking a taxi downtown. There really isn't too much going on downtown, shouldn't take more then a day, maybe two tops to check out all that's there. The peppermill is beautiful, you won't be disappointed. The Atlantis, which is another great casino is located maybe 2-3 blocks away.

Been there the hotel is wonderful and its got everything be prepared to stay there on site. Because Reno looks post apocalyptic. The other casinos are far apart and not as nice. Peppermill is Awesome though.

Why would you want to walk around outside while drinking beer?
