Fodor's Review

The makeover of Reno's waterfront has transformed this formerly dilapidated area into the toast of the town. The Riverwalk itself is a half-mile promenade on the north side of the Truckee River, which flows around lovely Wingfield Park, where outdoor festivals and other events take place. On the third Saturday of each month, local merchants host a Wine Walk between 2 and 5. For $20, you receive a wine glass and can sample fine wines at participating shops, bars, restaurants, and galleries. In July look for stellar outdoor art, opera, dance, and kids' performances as part of the monthlong Artown festival (, presented mostly in Wingfield Park. Also at Wingfield is the Truckee River Whitewater Park. With activities for all skill levels, it's become a major attraction for water-sports enthusiasts.
