Reno tops list of 15 happiest places to live in America Nevada city

Reno tops list of 15 happiest places to live in America: Nevada city is described as a modern boomtown with outdoor activities art scene and low taxes all helping it to top spot

The city of Reno is in Northwest Nevada.
close to the California Nevada border and it’s affectionately
known as the biggest little city in the world.
It’s close to Lake Tahoe and a popular spot for gambling and casinos.
however the city


has a lot of charm and is a great place to spend the weekend.
I visited Reno while on a road trip along Nevada’s loneliest road and here are some
of my favorite places to see in the city.
Let me know what I left off in the comments.
My first recommendation is the Riverwalk.
By far one of my favorite things to do in Reno is to walk along the Truckee River.
There’s a great path that goes along the water and takes you past city parks and many different
art installations.


It’s especially nice in the fall when the colors are changing or even after a fresh
coat of snow.
I love this outdoor aspect of the city and I always walk along the river trail whenever
I visit.
My next recommendation is to see the downtown murals.
Reno is a huge art town with art and murals all over the downtown part of the city.
There are interactive maps online that will take you to all of the murals and I saw probably
two dozen and still only saw half of the ones that were there.
It’s a great way to spend a half day in Reno plus many of them are in the midtown area
as well which is great for food and coffee.


My next recommendation is to go rock climbing at the Whitney Peak Hotel.
Right next to the Reno Arch.
this rock wall is definitely not for those who are afraid
of heights.
I didn’t get a chance to do it myself but I’ve heard it is a pretty incredible experience
in the city of Reno.
Plus the climbing wall is one of the tallest in the world at 164 feet tall.
Please let me know if you do this in the comments as I’d love to hear how it goes.
My next recommendation is the National Automobile Museum.
The National Automobile Museum in Reno is easily the best auto museum I’ve ever been
to.


The museum has all sorts of cars that I’ve never seen anywhere else including some one
of a kind hybrid cars.
Each of the cars is displayed elegantly in the four different museum galleries and most
were donated by the personal collection of one man.
William F.
Harrah.


Even if you don’t like cars I still recommend you visit here as I think you’ll enjoy walking
through the museum as it’s that impressive.
My next recommendation is the Nevada Museum of Art.
Only a few blocks away from the auto museum.
the Nevada Museum of Art is a good spot for
art lovers.


My favorite part of the museum is the sculpture garden that’s outside and which features art
from Burning Man.
The inside exhibition has a lot of great exhibits as well but no video is allowed.
only photos.
Don’t forget to go to the top floor when you’re there where you can get some great views of
Downtown Reno.
My next recommendation is the Wilbur D.
The sewing Museum.
The Wilbur D.


May Museum is the last museum on this list.
This museum features the personal collection of one man who was an artist.
rancher.
hunter.
philanthropist and traveler.
The museum features many of the artifacts he collected on his journey as well as a great
exhibit on his ranching and a crazy trophy room from all of his hunting.
I knew nothing about him before I came but I enjoyed visiting the museum.
watching the


video on his life and learning more.
Definitely check it out if you’re in Reno.
My next recommendation is a visit to The Row.
The Row is the name for the three major casinos in downtown Reno that are all connected by
a central underground walkway.
The walkway has fountains.
a huge mining machine and even a few plastic elephants.
This is in addition to many shops.


restaurants and quick access to any of the casinos.
It’s a fun spot to walk around especially when it’s cold outside.
My next recommendation is a visit to The Basement.
The Basement is another fun collection of shops.
restaurants.
a cafe and a speakeasy.
It is located in the bottom floor of a small building in downtown Reno and across from
the famous Believe sign and Space Whale.


I like going down here as it feels like you’ve escaped the city when visiting this area and
they have great art along the walls as well.
Plus the coffee shop in there always makes a mean latte.
My next recommendation is a visit to Junkie.
Junkie is one of the best second hand thrift stores I’ve ever been to.
It has an overwhelming amount of crazy stuff to see and it’s said to be the spot that people
get Burning Man outfits from or drop off their outfits at after spending the week in Black
Rock City.


Either way it’s an overload for your senses to walk through the store and I loved every
minute of it.
It’s especially good around the holidays when they have lots of fun Christmas stuff to see
as well.
My last recommendation before talking about food is a visit to Virginia City.
If you want to get a little bit outside of Reno while you’re there then consider the
25 minute drive over to Virginia City.
This historic town is the site of one of the most famous mines.
the Comstock Lode and it
has been able to maintain that historic old school charm.
The city has a great museum called The Way It Was and tons of saloons if you want to
drop by for a drink.

It’s a great half day adventure and it really feels like you’re visiting the old west.
Alright as promised here are three restaurants that I recommend in Reno.
The first is the Depot Craft Brewery and Distillery.
The Depot is an awesome spot housed in an old train depot built in the early 1900s and
that makes great beer and spirits.
They even have an alcohol that they distill from beer that’s stored in bourbon barrels.
It’s a fun spot to get a drink while in the city and they also have food as well.
I would recommend stopping by on the weekend when they’re serving brunch.
My second restaurant is a visit to Brothers Barbecue.

Whenever I travel I always try to find good barbecue and Brothers fits that bill.
Brothers is located inside an old house and they have a menu with the available meats
on the board outside.
I highly recommend you go on a day when they have the beef ribs though.
The beef ribs here are some of the best I’ve ever had in my entire life.
Even if they don’t have the ribs.
you can’t go wrong with the brisket and mac and cheese
though either.

My last recommendation on this list is a visit to Perenne Bakery.
Perenne Bakery in Midtown is another favorite spot of mine in Reno.
This place is a mecca for baked goods with flavors changing often and always something
fun and new to try.
I love any of their twice baked pastries but I always go in ready to try something new.
Plus they are next to a great coffee shop and a lot of murals as well.
So there you have it.
my list of places to explore and eat in Reno.
I know this is not a complete list so let me know what I left off in the comments.
Thanks for watching and we’ll see you on the next img.
