Romantic Things To Do in Reno

Popular Places

  • Reno-Tahoe International Airport
  • Sparks
  • University of Nevada, Reno
  • Victorian Square
  • The city that launched a thousand weddings (and a thousand divorces) can still be a romantic place. The surrounding mountains, forests and a sprinkling of excellent museums, restaurants and great kissing spots gives Reno a little leg up in the romance department.

    Well, why don't we start with the ultimate and tie the knot in Reno? Quickie marriages are still pretty popular here and there are several places you can get it done, such as the Chapel of the Bells or the Reno Riverwalk. If you are not quite ready to take the plunge, just take your date on a walk around the beautiful Rancho San Rafael Park or up to Windy Hill where you can get a view of the entire Reno/Sparks area.

    Lavender Ridge, with its cafe, shopping and acres of lavender fields is also a romantic (and fragrant) place to be. If you really want to be close, go for a dip at the Steamboat Villa Hot Springs or take a balloon ride at the Great Reno Balloon Race. Maybe your partner is more adventurous? Then a hike up the Ophir Creek Trail or a tour of the creepy Chollar Mine in Virginia City will be a good place to go. Or maybe a little more culture is in order? Try the intimate Reno Chamber Orchestra, a performance of the Reno Philharmonic, or a show at the Pioneer Theater or the Nevada Repertory at the University of Nevada.
