Before you travel out in wintry conditions, please check out my winter travel guide.
Reno is filled with so much holiday/seasonal action & cheer and we're pretty lucky that so many other areas surrounding us are in the same club- Lake Tahoe, Sparks, Carson City, Truckee, Virginia City, and more.
There's nothing like being on the same page with everyone else who loves enjoying the holidays- singing carols all day long, decorating their butts off, indulging in holiday treats, participating in rad, one-of-a-kind holiday events, taking care of one another, supporting local, and just being happy and spreading cheer.
Below are events, activities, and some local places to shop in Reno and in the surrounding areas.
With so much going on with the pandemic, businesses have all taken on some major difficulties, and supporting local businesses is more important now than ever.
Why support local businesses? They're our neighbors and they are passionate about their businesses, creating quality products and services.
I've met so many amazing business owners and I can say for a fact that many of them donate and help support others in the community. They strive for bigger things, listening and connecting with us, providing value and enrichment in our lives.
Please check back often as I will be updating this guide frequently and please have yourself a joyous holiday season.
I realize that a lot has been left out of my guide, but I was determined to release this post as soon as possible due to the sensitivity of time for events coming up soon.
There is limited space for many events so booking as soon as possible will be in your best interest.

|This nice owner was so kind to teach my kids about air plants. She hunts down unique pieces to grow them in. Air plants are low maintenance and look beautiful. I'm so glad that the one we got from her last year is alive and thriving.|
