Fall is finally here and Reno offers the perfect backdrop for all your fun fall adventures. Just a few miles north of Lake Tahoe, Reno, has long served as a gateway to some of the most stunning wilderness in the country. As you probably guessed, fall in Reno is magical.
Residents who live in Reno have no end of autumn-based activities to enjoy. Here are some of the highlights.
1. Leaf Peeping
Next to the pumpkin flavoring that gets added to just about everything, the best part of fall is the leaves. A panorama of red, orange, and yellow makes a feast for the eyes. Close to town, the Galena Creek Regional Park Tails, Hunter Creek Trail, and Mount Rose give you a quick way to get your leaf fix.
2. Good old-fashioned autumn fun
A few miles away from Reno, in the town of Spark, is a favorite destination for families and kids of all ages: Andelin Family Farm. As part of their fall festivities, they have a pumpkin patch where you can pick your own orange gourd and they have a fun corn maze to explore. If you’re looking for that quintessential fall activity, this is your place.
3. College Football
Fall and football go hand-in-hand. For residents in Reno, that means being part of the Wolf Pack, University of Nevada, Reno’s hometown team. Super fans already have their tickets for key games, and if you want to become one, be sure to go all out on Nov. 24 when they play their arch-rival University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
4. Ghoulish festivals and cool brews
Get out your calendar, because there are plenty of events you don’t want to miss this fall. For you beer lovers out there, Oktoberfest is huge in the area. Local ski resorts, harvest festivals, and more all get in on the action.
In addition to all the festivities going on around town, two top-rated apartment communities, Harvest at Damonte Ranch and Latitude 39, feature community activities that will remind you why fall is your favorite season.
