Reno- check out Nevada Art Museum. A very good small art venue. See the National Auto Museum- Mr. Harrahs old car collection.

Visit Virginia City- good for adults and kids. Lots to see, historical.

Suggest you check out the various Lake Tahoe forums for more details on that area, and this website:

The State museum in Carson City is very interesting.

If you are choosing between Reno or Tahoe, Tahoe wins - hands down. At least spend a day and night there. Circle the lake. Hyatt Regency, on the lake at Incline Village. Weather and snow amounts will be unpredictable.

Time your Virginia City stop for afternoon. You can see everything in a few hours. Even if you love to gamble, there is no reason to spend the night. The town closes down pretty early, and it is small.

I think there is a cool train ride that goes up to Va City and back, from Carson City. Doesn't show up on CC Things To Do, though.

You can also do an afternoon cruise on the lake.
