We re young couple in the late 20s, just wanna have fun, Plz tell us what to do in Reno besides gambling.
We ve been to Vegas many times so we re not looking for any Vegas like experience/ Any adult experiments we should try?

Tahoe is pretty close, skiing or snowboarding is great right now, plenty of sun and soft snow. I'm a Tahoe person and I've never really done anything in Reno besides the casino thing.

Virginia City worth a stop when going to/from Lake Tahoe. There is rafting/kayaking on the Truckee River, that might be interesting for you as well. Check the month you will be there for special events. Reno is never going to rival Vegas for excitement, but it is cheaper, cooler and greener, so go with that. Have a great trip.
