Reno is a city in western Nevada, the seat of Washow County. The city lies in the valley of the Truckee River (the so-called “Truckee Meadows”) at the eastern foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Reno is sometimes referred to by US residents as “the biggest small city”. The location of Reno is unique: the city is located at the junction of huge geological plates, so the Truckee Valley is seismically unstable. In 2008, an amazing phenomenon was recorded here – an earthquake lasting two months.

Although the official founding date of Reno is considered to be 1868, back in 1859 a river crossing was built here on the way from neighboring Virginia City to California. A mill, a foundry, a canteen, and a hotel were built at the crossing, and the settlement was named Lake Crossing. In 1863, a railway ran in this place, and in 1868, with the opening of the station, a new city was announced. He was named after Civil War hero Jesse Lee Reno.

Reno is a famous gambling city. In 1931, the first casinos opened, and until the heyday of Las Vegas, it was Reno that held the title of the gambling capital of the country. In recent decades, the so-called “Indian casinos” have flourished here, enjoying certain tax privileges.

Reno is a popular center for outdoor activities. Airplane enthusiasts come here for the annual air races, and windsurfers gather on Washaw Lake (south of Reno). Many ski resorts have been built in the surrounding mountains, where tracks are laid for fans of winter sports. The Nevada Museum of Art and the Automobile Museum, with a collection of famous cars and celebrities, are cultural attractions in Reno.
