Fun Things to Do in and around Reno/Sparks/Tahoe

The following list was put together with the help of the “Way West Herders,” a bunch of individuals who live in or around the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area. These folks generously donated time and attention to offer suggestions as to how Way West 2021 attendees might have a better experience in the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area. Thus, when you read this list, you’ll be getting an excellent idea of what the locals would recommend.

Of course, visitors to the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area can gamble. But they can also do a crazy amount of other incredibly fun (and family friendly) things that do not necessarily involve the wagering of hard-earned money or the consumption of alcoholic beverages.
