Putovanja: Zašto Reno, Nevada čini ultimativnu božićnu destinaciju

When most people think of vacationing in Nevada, Las Vegas is the first thing that comes to mind. But Reno is a great destination that you won’t want to miss out on during the holiday season.

Reno sits on the Nevada California border about 22 miles from Lake Tahoe and it didn’t get its nickname as “Biggest Little City in the World” for nothing. Its proximity to Lake Tahoe means it offers plenty of terrific outdoor activities. But being that it’s in Nevada, you can count on plenty of casinos and big city life.

If you are wondering where to take your next Christmas vacation, Reno may be the ultimate destination. Here are some things you can do while you’re in town.

Annual Hidden Valley Parade of Lights

There are plenty of homes throughout Reno that will be decorated to the nines during the Christmas season, but the neighborhood of Hidden Valley is one you won’t want to miss. Its homeowner’s association hosts a contest for best decorated home, and you can bet the residents do everything they can to try and win.

You can get to the neighborhood by traveling on E. McCarran Blvd or Veterans Parkway. Go east on Pembroke Dr. or Mira Loma Dr. until you start seeing decorated homes.

Other areas of Reno that will be dressed to impress include:

• Jagged Rock Rd.

• Hidden Valley Dr.

• Mia Vista Ct.

• Tamarisk Dr.

• Pebble Beach Dr.

• Clear Creek Dr.

The Tree Lighting Ceremony

The tree lighting ceremony is an annual event that takes place in Reno every year. It is hosted by the mayor who picks a resident or family to flick the switch.

In 2020, the O’Brian family, who recently lost their home in a fire, had the honor of lighting the tree. Their son was given the key to the city.

The tree is located at City Plaza. After the initial lighting, it stays up throughout the year making for a great photo opportunity.

Damonte Ranch Circle of Lights

This south Reno neighborhood goes big AND goes home during the holiday season. Guests can stroll the walking path around the wetlands to see the many houses that will be lit up with Christmas joy.

Reno Santa Pub Crawl

The Reno Santa Pub Crawl is the largest pub crawl in the country. It is attended by over 150,000 holiday clad merry makers. It is a charity event that donates all proceeds to schools so they can provide educational opportunities in the community.

To join in the fun, buy your Santa Crawl cup and bring it to participating bars. Come dressed up to enjoy the drink specials they have to offer.

Before the pub crawl begins, guests are encouraged to participate in the Santa Ski Crawl that happens at Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe. Visitors have a blast skiing and snowboarding dressed as their favorite Christmas characters.

Spirit of the Season

Every year the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra presents a musical event that’s sure to fill you with holiday cheer. Guests can check out a weekend show that includes carols, jazzy number and traditional tunes.

Winter Light Festival

The Winter Light Festival happens in downtown Reno. It kicks off in early December with a Makers’ Faire that features local artisans, food and drink. Santa will be on hand. There will also be interactive art pieces on display in Wingfield Park for the first week of the event.

The first day of the festival culminates with the lighting of the tree in City Plaza.

Ugly Sweater Wine Walk

If you didn’t have too much fun at the Santa Pub Crawl, you may want to overdo it at the Ugly Sweater Wine Walk. Head over to the Riverwalk District to celebrate National Ugly Sweater Day by doing more wining than dining. Guests can stroll through the area to visit the many businesses that will be offering libations. Need we tell you to wear an ugly Christmas sweater?

WinterFest

WinterFest happens at the Greater Nevada Field, a sports venue in Reno. Families can come by to enjoy Holiday Express Christmas train rides through hundreds of lights and visits with Santa. They can also take a spin at the ice rink.

Reno Jazz Orchestra Home for the Holidays

The Reno Jazz Orchestra is a 17-piece contemporary band that does not disappoint when it comes to offering performances during the holiday season. They will be at the Cargo Concert Hall for a weekend in mid-December. They are known to host special guest appearances and they are sure to be playing all your holiday favorites.
