15. Reno, NVGet More Info
Why go: From downtown Reno to North Lake Tahoe, there’s a different festival (like the Reno Rodeo, Reno’s Wing Fest, and the Artown festival) every weekend from Memorial Day through Labor Day in Reno Tahoe. Nevada’s dry heat also makes summer here more bearable than other areas in the south. Max out your time outdoors by biking along the Tahoe Rim bike trail from the city up to Lake Tahoe, kayaking or white-water rafting on the Truckee River straight through downtown Reno, or parasailing or water-skiing on the lake.
Where to stay: THE ROW Reno—with three interconnected properties: Eldorado, Circus Circus and Silver Legacy—covers four city blocks in the heart of downtown Reno. They just spent $100 million renovating their rooms and suites, as well as updating their entertainment spaces, and adding new restaurants and a luxury spa.
