Your Next Getaway: Memorial Day Weekend

FlagMemorial Day is a day to remember and honor those who have died in our nation’s service. Traditionally, Americans pay tribute to the brave men and women with patriotic parades and, of course, the usual barbecue and family camping trip.

As you’ve likely discovered, spring in Northern Nevada can mean working on your tan or running for cover from the snow flurries. Luckily, the weather is turning around just in time for your holiday weekend in Reno Tahoe USA.

If you haven’t gotten around to planning your weekend, we here at Reno Tahoe USA are making it easy for you.

You’re welcome.

Honor Our Country’s Heroes

Head back in time to Virginia City for a Memorial Day parade at noon on Saturday, May 29 down C St., Virginia City’s main drag. The parade celebrates the heroism and sacrifice of those Americans who have died defending our nation. 

The Carson City Memorial Day Service at Lone Mountain Cemetery is on Monday, May 31 at 1 p.m. The cemetery is located at 1044 Beverly Dr., Carson City, Nevada 89706. Call (775) 887-2111 or click here for more information.

Take your family to the Sparks Memorial Park at C Street and Pyramid way that features a bronze statue in remembrance of fallen firefighters and a memorial honoring Sparks residents who died defending our country.

Powning Veterans Memorial Park, in downtown Reno at 150 S. Virginia Street, has a memorial to Nevada service men and women who have died serving our country in the wars in Kuwait, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The park also features a statue of General Jesse Reno, who died in Civil War action and for whom Reno was named.

The Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery is in Fernley, about 45 miles east of Reno on Interstate 80. To reach the cemetery from Reno, take I-80 east to exit 48. Turn right and follow the signs to the cemetery.

Outdoor Recreation

Pyramid Lake FamilyIf you’re heading to Pyramid Lake, the Paiute Tribe says you definitely won’t be alone. Only 35 miles northeast of Reno, Pyramid Lake is the perfect daytrip or quick, weekend getaway for the entire family. The Tribe is expecting a large crowd and wants to remind you that day use, camping and other permits are required for all nontribal members’ access to the lake. Pyramid Lake is also widely regarded as a world class fishery and one of finest places to catch a Lohanton Cutthroat Trout. (Can’t you just hear the grill sizzling?)

Lake Tahoe and San Francisco Top the List of Best U.S. Destinations

TahoeTripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice 2010 placed San Francisco and Lake Tahoe in the top two spots for Best Destinations in the United States. TripAdvisor is home to over 30 million trusted traveler reviews and opinions.

Here is why TripAdvisor rated Lake Tahoe as the number two spot to visit in the entire country:

“Basking in its 300 days of sunshine, Lake Tahoe is a haven for outdoor fun in every season. Swimming, kayaking and windsurfing are popular in the summer months, while epic snowfall makes for spectacular skiing in winter. For those who prefer indoor fun, there’s plenty of that in Tahoe, too. With 24-hour casinos and a flashy nightlife scene, the area has a tangible Vegas vibe. A sprinkle of bling, if you will. Not surprising, since Lake Tahoe straddles the border between California and Nevada.”

Here is why TripAdvisor placed San Francisco in the number one spot:

“Who cares about a little fog (okay, a lot of fog) when there’s so much to do in San Francisco? By day, explore Fisherman’s Wharf and the Aquarium of the Bay, ride a cable car, and stroll around the Presidio; by night, have a fabulous dinner (at a Michelin-starred restaurant or a tiny place in Chinatown), then hit some of the best clubs on the West Coast.”

How luck are we? We have the option to live and play in #RenoTahoe or San Francisco, just a short drive from one another!

Bring on the Carbs! How to Prepare for your Big Event

Reno OdysseyIn Reno Tahoe USA, there is no shortage of events to get your adrenaline racing. Cyclists, runners and triathletes are gearing up for the area’s biggest athletic events this season:the Rock-n-River Half Marathon, the Reno Tahoe Odyssey, the Run Amuck fun run at the Reno River Festival , Moms on the Run, the multi-sport Sunchaser Challenge, America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride around Lake Tahoe, the Tour de Nez and the City of Sparks’ Father’s Day Half Marathon.

Clearly, you have no excuse to sit on the couch with over 300 days of sunshine and an abundance of options in the area.

Why Should You Pig Out on Carbs?

As athletes wrap up their physical and mental training, it’s time to fuel the body with carbohydrates. Carbo-loading is a strategy used by endurance athletes to maximize the storage of glycogen, or energy, in the muscles. Research suggests performing an exhaustive exercise 7 days before the event to deplete your energy stores. Then 3 to 4 days before the big day, eat a very high carb diet that will initiate a response from the muscles to take in as much glycogen from the carbohydrates.

And note to self, if you’re partaking in a pasta party the night before the run, avoid the salad and high-fat dressing! As one expert noted to Wendy Bumgardner of About.com, “Constipation is unknown among marathon participants.” You don’t want the extra weight in your digestive tract the next morning. You don’t want any roughage, such as from the salad. You don’t want the extra weight, period. If you have been eating a balanced diet the week before the marathon, you have already loaded your muscles with glycogen.”

The good news is most events have plenty of porta-potties.

The bad news is the stop will slice minutes from your run time.

Where to Grub!

Visitrenotahoe.com polled its Facebook fans on the best local places to load up on carbs. Here’s what they recommended:

Chris Delaberta likes Mongolian. You can try Toucan Charlie’s Buffet and Grill inside the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa or Genghis Grill at 121 Los Altos Pkwy, Sparks, Nevada.

Nico Aguilera recommends Pierino’s Ristorante-Pizzeria at 575 Keystone Avenue Reno, NV 89503-4337, (775) 322-3492.

William LaBounty likes the Red Dog Saloon in Virginia City.

Diane Zeni Klund likes Eclipse Pizza and Buenos Grill. (These two are neighbors, so you can go to both!)

Patti McQuerry Little is a fan of the Reno landmark, the Gold N Silver Inn which was recently featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

Ashley Anne Lawton recommends PJ & Co.

Awful AwfulIf you want a massive carbo-load, Ted Ryan suggests the infamous Awful Awful burger, the meal that’s bigger than your head! The address is listed as 233 North Virginia Street, Reno, but we recommend having a local guide you down the proper alley.

Virginia Jeffers says try Dish Café, who was also recently featured on the Food Network.

Loading up Gluten-Free

Reno resident Aimee Laca Eiguren lives gluten-free and helps to educate people on how to lead healthy, gluten-free lifestyles. La Vecchia now serves gluten-free Tinkyada pasta. Aimee says Cafe de Thai’s gluten-free Pad Thai is amazing, with lots of noodles. Whole Foods offers a few tasty frozen gluten-free pizzas that will do the trick before the big race and the Grill has delicious and safe mashed potatoes.

New Exhibit Takes You on the Road to America’s National Parks

Old Family TravelingIt’s hard to imagine our lives without them now, but there was a time when owning, let alone driving a car was a rare opportunity. The creation of the vehicle forever changed our world, and a new exhibit at the National Automobile Museum in downtown Reno showcases a unique impact that cars had on our society.

Family getaways to our nation’s breathtaking National Parks were made possible by the automobile-loving public of the 1910s who helped create a National Park-to-Park Highway. The new Masterpiece Exhibit, “Motoring Tourist: National Parks Adventure”, explores this influential group of thrill-seekers, opening Tuesday, April 20, 2010.

In the late 1910s, automobiles were able to bring man to nature like never before and the National Park Service embraced the motoring tourist creating a gigantic 5,000 mile scenic loop through 11 western states, connecting 12 national parks.

Check out the innovative gear and auto camping accessories that were created to meet the needs of the new trend at the Museum Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $4 for children 6 to 18 years.  Children age 5 and younger are free. Parking is free in the Museum lot. For more information, call (775) 333-9300 or visit The National Automobile Museum.
