From Reno Arch to Truckee River: A Self-Guided Audio Tour
- Audio Guide
- Instant Confirmation
- Private Tour
Weave through the different periods of Reno's boom and bust on this self-guided audio tour of the downtown area. Reno, with its highs as a glitzy desert town filled with cowboys and celebrities, to its lows as a washed-up gambling town and the butt of many jokes on late night TV, has never failed to keep America fascinated. It’s a contradictory place that rides high and dips low. And, as it turns out, that oscillation was built into the city’s character from the beginning. This walking tour starts at Reno’s Arch, and along the way you'll find out about: A beloved 12-floor brick building that was demolished. An extinct species of huge fish that used to swim through downtown Reno. Reno’s history as the divorce capital of America. How trains, highways and mining changed the city. The bridge where the whole town started. This self-guided audio tour can be enjoyed on location or even virtually at home with VoiceMap's Continuous Play function which disables the GPS playback.
