When to go

The best time to visit Reno is from late spring to early fall. The high altitude weather is pleasant and cools off at night. During the month of July, the annual Artown festival features artists, art and wine walks and musical events. Reno can get cold and windy in the winter, however, this is a great time to visit Lake Tahoe for some skiing.
