Reno may not have the glamor of Las Vegas... or the beauty of Lake Tahoe... or the cleanliness of Atlantic City (hyperbole alert)... or the convenience of a riverboat casino... but it does have free drinks.
Despite feeling like the casino town that was left behind, Reno holds a special place in my heart. Having lived on the East Coast for the last 20 years, Reno is the gateway to the mountains of Lake Tahoe. It's a waypoint where you spend a night and a little walking around money as you switch from an airplane to a rented 4x4 for a week of sun, fun and snow in the mountains.
