Contact Us More About Reno

It’s easy to understand why Reno, NV has earned the moniker, “The Biggest Little City in the World”—there’s a lot to do! Whether you love to ski the slopes, admire the mountain views from your cabin, or visit historical sites, there are more activities in the Reno area than we can count. Why don’t you hop in to your Hyundai Santa Fe or Tucson and visit some of Lithia Hyundai of Reno’s favorite spots!

Lake Tahoe

The largest alpine lake in the country, stretching between the Nevada-California border, Lake Tahoe features ski resorts, hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, and dozens of beaches. Even just the Northeast portion near Reno contains a plethora of activities to enjoy. Northern Lake Tahoe is also a superb spot for skiing!


Lake Tahoe Skiing

Though there are many great towns circling Lake Tahoe, Incline Village, which, like Reno, is within Washoe County, offers some of the best skiing in the area.

  • Diamond Peak (1210 Ski Way, Incline Village, NV) ski resort has six chairlifts and 30 runs across 655 acres of terrain.
  • Even closer to Reno is Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe (22222 Mt Rose Hwy, Reno, NV), also in Incline Village. Located in Toiyabe National Forest, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe has the highest base elevation of a Tahoe-region ski resort at about 8,260 feet.

Even those who don’t ski will love the Incline Village mountain retreats, or, in the skiing off-season, events like the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival.


Animal Ark in Reno, NV

Animal Ark (1265 Deerlodge Road) isn’t a zoo, it’s a wildlife sanctuary and education center that cares for abandoned and injured animals that can’t otherwise be released back into the wild. The 38 acres strives to simulate the natural habitats of the native North American and exotic animals in their care, like Monty the one-eyed wolf and his best friend Shadow, and exotic cheetahs Moyo and Jamar. If you arrive early enough, you can even see the staff feed Gracie and LG, two American black bears. Though Animal Ark prefers to rerelease bears back into the wild, Gracie and LG were brought to them as cubs and would not be able to survive.

Bartley Ranch Regional Park

Bartley Ranch Regional Park (6000 Bartley Ranch Road) is almost like a time machine, bringing visitors back to the old west. Located in south Reno, the park is 56 acres of dazzling hiking trails, pastures, horse arenas, and picnic areas. You can also visit the historic Huffaker School House, dated 1867, or the Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater, a unique theater surrounded by greenery. Bartley Ranch also has campgrounds, dog parks, and much more for visitors to enjoy.
