  • National Automobile Museum

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Reno Things to Do

    The National Automobile Museum is the sum of the original Harrah's Auto Museum that once had over 1,400 cars and is probably one of the top attractions in Reno...and for good reasons. It is also ranked in the top auto museums worldwide and it offficially opened in 1989 I have to the museum many times while living in Reno as it hosted many events...

  • RTC Ride and RTC Rapid

    Reno Transportation

    RTC transit services are inconvenient use on nights and weekends. By that time, most of the routes are running hourly with only a few routes running every half hour. During the day, RTC is tolerable to get around if you don't want to drive. It is possible to go from the Atlantis or Peppermill all the way to downtown. Rapid is reliable and runs...

  • Desert Dune Buggy Tour

    Laughlin Things to Do

    Bob and I were totally pumped to catch some air hitting the sand rails in a dune buggy with Laughlin Adventure Tours . I think we both envisioned a hair-raising race across the desert as we shouted into the wind, loud enough for those behind to hear, "Oh yeah, eat dust baby!" It wasn't quite as imagined but it was fun and probably a whole lot...

  • Outlaw Motorcyclists

    Laughlin Warnings and Dangers

    Every spring there is a River Run that attracts thousands of motorcycle aficionados to the Laughlin area. Now most bikers are law-abiding citizens; many motorcycle clubs claim, with some justification, that they are victims of police sensationalism and media hype. But late one night last April (2002) there was a firefight on the casino floor at...


Valley of Fire State Park

  • Chipmunks Everywhere

    Valley of Fire State Park Things to Do

    Oh, it was our first sighting of a Chipmunk in the US, and how amazingly funny are these cute little critters. They were all over the park, and would follow us, when we were on foot of course, although, when we did stop, the Chipmunks we saw at the next stop, did look a little like the ones at the last stop :)It was great to see and spend a little...

  • Driving or Bike Riding

    Valley of Fire State Park Transportation

    Driving a car through the Valley of Fire State Park is great, as you will see by my video, and there were plenty of motorbike riders and bicycle riders enjoying it too. I don't know about walking through though, really hot, but plenty of shade with the tall rocks, but still too hot I think.We found this place by chance as we were just passing the...

  • Rock Shapes

    Valley of Fire State Park Things to Do

    Oh, I don't know about this to be honest, we saw signs saying things like Elephant Rock and the like, next to a big rock that looked like, a big rock the size of an Elephant. And there were loads of rocks or groups of rocks with names to say what they look like, but I thought that was a load of rubbish really, and just one of those ways of...

  • Watch the Weather

    Carson City Warnings and Dangers

    Carson City is still desert and the weather can change quickly and dramatically. While I was visiting it was fairly warm; then they predicted snow overnight. The snowfall did not quite get to the elevation of Carson City but was rather heavy slightly higher. You need to keep an eye on the weather here.

  • Vietnamese Fast Food

    Carson City Restaurants

    Pho is a type of Rice Noodle Soup. This is basically a fast food restaurant with a décor of fast food chain crossed with Asia. The food seemed fresher though. This is a good choice if you want something different and are in a hurry. I enjoyed the Pho.

Incline Village

  • Stillwater Spa at the Hyatt

    Incline Village Things to Do

    My friend and I booked the couples escape package as it was priced better than the wrap and massages separately. The services were great and the masseuses were fantastic. There were a few small things that could have improved the customer service of the spa. The snacks in the waiting room need spoons in them. I was careful not to touch any food...

    Incline Village Things to Do

    There is a 3 mile walking path along Lakeshore Blvd in Incline Village. It's a nice place to walk and to look at some of the quite interesting houses and properties along the lake. There are a couple of beaches along the path which you can use to access the lake. I think you have to have a pass to get in during the summer season but you can walk...

    West Wendover Things to Do

    Two items of history we discovered on the main drag. First is the monument at the visitors center to the part Wendover played in the dropping of the first atomic bomb.

    Mount Charleston Warnings and Dangers

    When driving up the grade on highway 157 to Mount Charleston be very careful. The posted speed limit on this 2 lane road is 60 mph. Impatient motorists traveling behind you will speed very dangerously tail gating you, and then drive around you passing you up around 80 mph because they act like they got a hot date or something. Please drive the...

  • A new day

    Mount Charleston Off The Beaten Path

    View of the sunrise from the Mount Charleston Hotel. Its still gray and cloudy at that point, but it will burn off quickly and convert the sky to perfect Nevada blue. Early morning is a great time for a drive on the mountain. While driving, 2 foxes sprinted across the road and a deer meandered roadside, foraging for food.The sun crept slowly past...

  • An icy afternoon

    Mount Charleston Off The Beaten Path

    Ice and snow accumulate on the balcony of the room at the Mount Charleston Hotel. By midday, most of it has melted into slush. But overnight frosty temperatures will replenish the accumulation.

    Elko Things to Do

    Elko has a reasonably good-sized, interesting downtown that offers more varied sights and eating, etc., than one will find along I-80. I recommend visiting here, whether just driving through town or not, to get a better taste of town and what it has to offer.

    Elko Restaurants

    This is a great little place on the edge of downtown Elko, and a great example of why one, even when just driving through on the freeway, should skip the chain crud in the gas-station stops and shopping centres along the freeway and venture into town to see what the real town has to offer.This is a little bakery that produces Cornish pasties,...

Lake Tahoe State Park

  • Swimming in Tahoe

    Lake Tahoe State Park Sports & Outdoors

    I guess it all depends on your point of view. I grew up on the north side of the lake, so I thought the water temperature was normal and that everywhere else in the world was warm...With that being said, the above posts are correct. The average temperature is about 50F. Winter or summer, it does not matter, the lake is so large and the currents are...
