Abstract:

Located near the California-Nevada border, Reno has earned the title, "biggest little city in the world," given to it in the 1920s when gaming became a popular tourist attraction. In comparison, nearby Virginia City is a ghost town. In 1859 the Comstock Lode, the biggest silver find in the world, was discovered, and Virginia City was established as a booming mining town, lush with silver barons' mansions and over 750 miles of mining tunnels under the city. Today those boom days have been re-created, and tourists can get the flavor of what the city was like in the 19th century by visiting a silver mine and learning about the process or visiting the newspaper office where Samuel Clemens was a reporter before he became Mark Twain. Back in Reno, we learn that the transcontinental railroad saved this city, built in 1868 as a mining town. As Virginia City declined, Reno became a thriving trading center due to convenient transportation, and when gaming was legalized in the early 20th century, Reno became a neon world that never shuts down. Although casinos are the most popular entertainment, there are other attractions as well. The National Bowling Stadium, with 80 championship lanes and high-tech equipment, is a place where the entire family can have fun. You can indulge your food cravings, enjoy the many first-class shows, or simply relish the sights and sounds of the city where "anything goes."
