Mini Trip Report

Just back from a week in Reno. Four of us stayed in a wonderful 17th floor condo right next to the River Walk. We had a great time. We were able to walk downtown to the casinos and restaurants. We "donated" some money to the casino's. Our favorites were the Siena and the Silver Legacy. We were there over St. Paddy's Day, so the Silver Legacy, El Dorado, and Circus Circus were extremely crowded and noisy over the weekend, but they were nice during the week. We saw the National Auto Museum which was really well done. We spent part of a day in Virginia City which was fun. You can't miss visiting the Bucket of Blood Saloon there. Something different was we went on the Riverfront wine walk which they have every third Saturday of the month. $20 donated to charity gets you a souvenior glass which you take and get wine tastes in 20 or so of the bars and shops all around the river end of town. Lots of fun and you get to see all the bars and restaurants that you might miss just walkiing around on your own. A couple of hours later and stops at 15+ bars and shops for a taste of wine was lots of fun. Everybody in the bars and shops were friendly and had a fun time except for one, the Waterfall, which was a dive bar where they had an obnoxious "bouncer" at the door, and rude people serving the wine inside. Of the 15 or so we stopped into this was the only one I'd recommend avoiding. We ate one night at the casino cafe in Silver Legacy which was ok, one dinner at the El Dorado buffet which was a good buffet (as buffet's go), another night at the Silver Peak Grill which was just so so, We had a great dinner at the Thai Corner and a wonderful dinner at La Familia Italian restaurant;;just a block across the river. All and all, we had a great time. It really is the Biggest Little City. So much more fun and intimate than Vegas, which is a zoo. We'll be going back. Besides, the casino's owe us some money we left there.. .

Thanks for the nice report. So many folks are too quick to downgrade Reno for not being like Vegas, but you managed to get around and recognize the positives.

Glad you had a great time. We'll try to win the money you left, next month.
