Nevada, U.S.A.
THE BIGGEST LITTLE CITY IN THE WORLD
Welcome Reno Nevada. With a population of around 233,000, Reno is known as The Biggest Little City in the World.
Famous for its casinos and being the birthplace of renowned Caesars Entertainment Corporation, Reno is named after Major Jesse Lee Reno, a Union officer killed in the American Civil War. Reno has plenty of history. In 1860, Charles Fuller built a log bridge across the Truckee River and charged a fee to those who crossed it to Virginia City to dig for gold. He provided places to rest, eat and network with fellow fortune seekers. The bridge was acquired by Myron Lake and deeded a portion of his land to a man named Charles Crocker, who eventually established the town of Reno in 1868. After the mining boom waned in the 1920s, most political and business activity shifted to the non-mining communities, in particular Vegas and Reno; presently the two largest cities in Nevada. Once thriving mining communities became ghost towns while Reno and Vegas continued to grow. Reno actually used to be the gaming capital of the world before Las Vegas topped the record, and albeit number two in Nevada, it is still a lively casino town. Aside from attracting fortune-hunters from mainly San Francisco and Sacramento, Reno holds several events to further its allure Hot August Nights (a classic car convention), Street Vibrations (motorcycle gathering and rally), The Great Reno Balloon Race, and bowling tournaments to name a few. But Reno is not just a passing through for gambling and festivities - the cultural world is thriving with a large number of theaters and museums to choose from. For instance, Nevada Museum of Art is the only American Alliance of Museums accredited museum in the state of Nevada. The Pioneer Center for Performing arts shows magnificent performances in a lavish, futuristic building with the appearance of a golden dome often referred to as Golden Turtle. The very best of Nevada's education is to be found in Reno, with the state's foremost university located here - University of Nevada. The campus is home to large-scale laboratories in the College of Engineering, and has put the university on the national map for civil engineering and earthquake testing. Furthermore, this impressive university houses the renowned Nevada School of Medicine with its world-class faculty, and the Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism, which has produced six Pulitzer Prize winners. Not to forget, Reno has more than city life and boasts one of the most beautiful places in the country Lake Tahoe. With soaring mountains and crystal-clear waters, it is best known as a skiing destination during winter months, while the summer makes for a perfect summer getaway with sprawling beaches and fishing opportunities.
