Housing and apartment trends in the neighborhoods around the University of Nevada, Reno
Many people ask me, what is there to do in the winter in Reno? It is a season where there are less outdoor community events. Less people walking around. It seems like there is less to do for fun, right?
Yet, with the Sierra Nevada mountains close by, there is plenty of outdoor activities to do. One of my favorite activities is sledding in the Mt. Rose Meadows. If you have a sled (which can be purchased in most discount and drug stores this time of year for about $20), sledding is basically free. It is a fun family activity. Kids enjoy it, and it is fun for adults too. You simply walk uphill, and slide down. It's more fun than it sounds. See the video above.
But, of course, there are many other activities close-by including:
- Snowshoeing in Truckee, Chickadee ridge, Galena Park
- Walking in snow along Lake Tahoe's new East Shore path
- Riverwalk along Truckee River near downtown Reno
- Sparks Marina walk with Legends Mall visit
- Skiing at the many ski resorts in the area, including Mt. Rose, Boreal, Diamond Peak
- A visit to a hot springs (Grover's, David Walley's, Carson Hot Springs).
- Or simply try an afternoon neighborhood walk and coffee house visit
International Friends of Reno team organizes several activities for immigrants, international students and Reno International House members throughout the winter.
