Located in the Nevada high desert, Reno rests near 5000 feet in the Great Basin area, adjacent the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Just a few miles from the Tahoe and the California border, Reno is one of ten communities that make up the metro area of Truckee Meadows. Best known for its casinos and gambling, Reno has gone to great lenghts to attract a different crowd with its remake of Wingfield Park. This attractive mid-town water park, powered by the Truckee River, is a haven for kayakers and anglers, as well as a soothing stop for residents and guests. The Biggest Little City in the World also hosts a variety of major festivals and events, including the Reno Air Races, Hot August Nights, the Reno Rodeo, and the Great Reno Balloon Races.
