In the foothills of the Sierra Madre, in the northwestern part of Nevada state, Reno is the most populous Nevada city outside of Las Vegas. Known as ‘The Biggest Little City in the World,’ Reno is famous for its casinos and as the birthplace of Caesar’s Entertainment Corporation. Before the late 1950s, Reno found its vocation as the gambling capital of the United States, until, that is, Las Vegas stole its thunder and took center stage as America’s capital of sin. To compensate for the tourist exodus, Reno now plays exuberant host to a medley of annual events with titillating titles, including the classic car convention known as ‘Hot August Nights,’ and the motorcycle frenzy that goes by the name of ‘Street Vibrations.’ Reno is the location of the corporate headquarters for numerous companies, including Braeburn Capital, Hamilton, EE Technologies, Port of Subs, and PC-Doctor. Outdoor recreational activities abound in the Reno area. During the long, hot summers, locals and tourists flock to Lake Tahoe, the Truckee River, and Pyramid Lake. During the winter, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice skating, and snowmobiling seduces adrenaline junkies who converge on some 18 ski resorts, including Northstar California, Sierra-at-Tahoe, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Sugar Bowl, Diamond Peak, Heavenly Mountain, and Mount Rose.
