Reno is again earning accolades as a four-season adventure epicenter, this time in the pages of National Geographic Adventure magazine.
In the magazine’s September issue cover story, “The 50 Next Great Adventure Towns,” Reno is ranked tops among some great destinations. Those of us who already live here know why: 300 days of sunshine a year, a quick drive to Lake Tahoe and 18 ski/board/cross-country resorts, golf, mountain biking, the Truckee River, etc.
The magazine cited criteria including lifestyle and career opportunities in its list.
“So this year we selected 50 innovative towns that aren’t just prime relocation spots right now, but smart choices for the future,” the magazine wrote. “Not only do they have the action. They’ve got a plan. Now we’re giving you a plan too. Inside, you’ll find hometown picks that range from adventure 24/7 hubs loaded with outdoor options to urban players that offer a variety of jobs and cultural activities without sacrificing green space.”
