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

Towering 164-feet above the landmark Reno arch is the world’s tallest climbing wall on the 16-story building’s exterior façade. Inside, climbing enthusiasts or curious beginners will find a world-class bouldering center, plus event space and slacklines. The entire climbing facility, known as BaseCamp, is built to international competition standards but also first-timer friendly.

Other attractions are slated to open in 2012, including the pet-friendly HANG Hotel in spring, and an outdoor “Adventure Deck” with BMX and skate parks, outdoor bouldering and more.
