Reno Tahoe USA APP

“There are so many choices for entertainment, special events, outdoor adventure and relaxation in Reno, Sparks and North Lake Tahoe that it can be difficult for visitors to narrow down their options before they get here,” said RSCVA President and CEO Christopher Baum. “More and more visitors are relying on mobile technology to point them in the right direction for information on their passions at any given moment, and the new Reno Tahoe USA app provides visitors with more information, and more control, of their overall travel experience.”

The Reno Tahoe USA app provides potential visitors with information on which hotels may be best suited to their needs; what concerts, events and entertainment will be offered during their visit; where they can get outdoors to enjoy the fresh air, ski resorts and golf courses; as well as where they might find a great restaurant, a world-class spa or unique shopping throughout the destination. Once visitors are here, the app uses their location to help them find activities of interest within walking distance. The app also provides easy access to a variety of coupons, deals and discounts offered by dozens of local businesses.

In support of the popular “buy local” campaigns being launched in destinations across the country, the RSCVA worked with Reno-based KPS3 Marketing to develop the Reno Tahoe USA app, which it designed to maximize, and to simplify, the number of options presented to visitors.

“Travelers have come to depend on their phone for guidance in new destinations,” said KPS3 Vice President of Creative and Technical Services Rob Gaedtke. “This application puts visitors in control of that experience and allows the RSCVA to share the myriad offerings found in the Reno Tahoe area.”

The RSCVA and its partners are also making the new Reno Tahoe USA app more than just a source of information. One new user of the Reno Tahoe USA app will be given a three-day, two-night stay, at their choice of the Eldorado Hotel Casino or Silver Legacy Resort Casino, each month through October 2013.

The Reno Tahoe USA app can be downloaded at the iPhone Mobile App Store, the Android Google Play Store or at

Use the Silver Legacy iPhone App for Santa Crawl Map

Reno Santa CrawlHave no fear, Silver Legacy Resort Casino will help guide you to all the bars, pubs and clubs on the Santa Crawl list this year!  The new Silver Legacy iPhone App now features a map of all the stops along the 2010 crawl route to help save paper and avoid getting lost. 

Silver Legacy hopes people will ditch their paper maps and use this helpful iPhone App, which is free to download from the App store.  Launched today, Santa Crawlers have time to check the route and plan stops before they go out and about this Saturday night at 7:30 p.m.

The Santa Crawl is an annual charity event that that attracts thousands of people dressed as Santa, Mrs. Clause, elves, reindeer and more.  Crawlers make their way around downtown Reno in groups, stopping at participating establishments—as noted on the map—to drink and be merry.  An estimated $5,000 in proceeds will be given to, an online charity supporting children’s classroom initiatives around the country.  The climax of the evening takes place at midnight as Crawlers gather under the Reno Arch to sing Christmas carols.

Launched in early October, Silver Legacy’s iPhone App gives users all the 2010 Santa Crawl information in the palm of their hand and also includes all the features Silver Legacy’s website provides.  Not only can the iPhone App use GPS to calculate your location, it can also give you the specials at the closest on-property bar.  $2 Bud Light and $3 Kamikazes will be available to Crawlers at participating Silver Legacy bars all night long. 

Silver Legacy’s iPhone App also gives users the ability to instantly make dinner reservations, buy concert tickets and take virtual tours of their rooms before making reservations.  It also directly links to social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.  Impressive GPS features also make the Silver Legacy iPhone App handy for those using their mobile devices on property by sending specials directly to the phone.
