A New Breed of Visitor Center Opens in Reno

If you’re visiting Reno Tahoe and wondering where to find information on all the exciting activities and events the area has to offer, you’re in luck; May 11 marked the grand opening of the new Reno Tahoe Visitor Center!

7206056240_014915a1d5_zLocated inside the popular Reno eNVy retail store, the vibrantly colored center is fully stocked with updated maps, guides, coupons, gifts and more. Guests will find information on everything from events and festivals, to biking and hiking trails, to ghost tours and beyond. It’s a one-stop shop.

The new visitors center is a collaborative effort between Reno eNVy owner Scott Dunseath, the RSCVA and the City of Reno. “As the RSCVA works to create more traffic flow and bring more visitors to the area, it’s important to have an accessible location where they can find the information they need to get the most out of their experience,” explains RSCVA President and CEO Christopher Baum.

Dunseath recognized the opportunity to reach out to visitors in search of information after moving his store to its new location at 135 N. Sierra Street. Nestled downtown in a high foot-traffic area near popular businesses and the Truckee River, the Reno 7206059998_18b19e3cfd_zTahoe Visitor Center is the perfect place for tourists to begin their visit, offering a plethora of free information in a fun, “Reno style” atmosphere.

In addition to browsing the information racks, guests can also enjoy a one-of-a-kind photo op inside the authentic Airstream trailer mounted on the back wall.

So to get the most out of your next visit (and an awesome t-shirt) be sure to stop by the Reno Tahoe Visitor Center.

Be the eNVy of your friends with RENO ENVY gear

RenoENvyTIt’s sometimes hard to put your finger on what makes Reno Tahoe such a special place. We sometimes talk about the number of ski resorts and mountain bike trails, and the concerts and the ballpark and the shopping. That’s stuff that other places have, but what makes Reno Tahoe … better?

Well, it’s about a feeling. If you’ve felt it, you know. It’s like the feeling you get when you are in on a joke, or you have a perfect experience – like the perfect cappuccino or something. Those of us who live here know it, and those of you who visit frequently know it.

Since 2005, Scott Dunseath and his crew of proud Reno-ites have attempted to capture the feeling of Reno Tahoe in a clothing line called RENO ENVY. Of course, the clothing is a play on Reno, Nevada, but it is also an outward expression of this hard-to-describe feeling.

Locals in our fair city wear this clothing with pride – poking fun at the sometimes misdirected, sometimes accurate impression that Reno outsiders have about the place we proudly call home. RENO ENVY just launched a new Web site – and great place to get the gear to make your friends envious. Check it out.
