Weird Reno Walking Tour

Ready to dip a toe into Weird Nevada? There’s no better way to get to know this unforgettable side of Nevada—and the Biggest Little City—than the Weird Reno Walking Tour. Starting from the basement of the Renaissance Reno Downtown Hotel, embark on a 90-minute historic walking tour through the Downtown Reno Riverwalk to hear stories about locations original to the Reno story, the characters who defined them, and beyond. From stories about the Divorce Capital of the USA, to Reno’s famous alleyways, to the Old Reno Post Office, Virginia Street Bridge and more, make sure the Weird Reno Walking Tour is part of your Lake Tahoe Loop discoveries.

Equal parts history and entertainment, journey into the unexpected with a historic walking tour that uncovers the Biggest Little City’s colorful past and the characters who defined it. 

A tour adapted to change with the seasons, the husband and wife duo behind this historic walking tour also introduced Reno’s “Magic Underground” and “Illusionarium” productions, and have toured with “Carnival of Wonders”, produced “Before Your Very Eyes” in Atlantic City, and brought “The Illusionists” Turn of the Century” to Broadway. Reno is a city known for reinventing itself over the years, and with an ethos of building connections to the places and people important to the Reno story, discover the magic of the BLC before you.

The tour is family friendly, and requires about one full hour of walking with many stops and stories along the way. No matter the season, Nevada is a land of weather extremes—be sure to bring plenty of layers to bundle up or cool down, a bottle of water, camera, and sense of adventure!
