What to expect

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.

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, Reno’s history as the divorce capital of America, how trains, highways and mining changed the city and the bridge where the whole town started.
