"The biggest little city in the world" is its motto
The Nevada state seal should have a craps table on it.
Reno is defined by gambling. The casinos and hotels are its heart.
It is close to the ski areas if you are into the winter sports, and culturally equal or better than Bakersfield, and has some decent German Auto mechanics around to keep your car in good shape.
It has a natural smog inversion layer, unfortunately.
One can dine very well and get plenty of value so long as they don't gamble.
And long term residents tell you, if you haved a propensity to gambling addication, it is a VERY bad place to live.
The Lake Tahoe attractions are nearby, and the attractions of Carson City, Virginia City, Minden and Gardnerville beckon. The latter cities have attracted Basque sheepherders over time, and there are some excellent Basque restaurants around.
There are definate seasons you will notice, but all in all it is not too bad.
About 15 miles east of town, is a large and legal whorehouse known as the "Mustang Ranch" which is another roadside attraction (for some)
Two yearly events of some reknown are the Reno Air Races, and the Hot August Nights, the latter being an enormous car show event with thousands of pre-1982 American muscle cars,classics and hot rods showing up
