Coming to Reno This Summer? Make Your Packing List!

Reno The Biggest Little City In The World
Are you visiting Reno this summer? If so, then now is the time to think about what you'll be bringing with you. Your packing list needs to include a lot of accessories for outdoor play as well as fun in the casinos, museums, and cultural institutions. This packing list just gives you a taste of the things that you'll want to bring with you when you come to Reno this year.

Comfortable Shopping Shoes

Reno is one of the best places for shopping in all of Nevada. When you come to Reno, you'll discover a world of fun boutiques and shops. From vintage and consignment shops to jewelry and clothing stores, there are many places where you can pick up fun and unique items from all around the world. Whether you're into clubbing, meditating, or hiking, Reno has a store that supplies the accessories. 

If you're going to spend time walking around carrying shopping bags, you're going to need good shoes for the task. A good pair of tennis shoes or running shoes should serve you well as you hit the streets. Be sure to try out your shoes and break them in before you come; otherwise, you could find yourself shopping with painful feet.

Sunglasses, Hat, Sunblock, and Lip Balm

Reno gets about 3,500 hours of sunshine annually, and only gets about 1 inch of precipitation total all summer long. In and around Reno, you'll find over a dozen golf courses, biking trails, and of course, Lake Tahoe. Depending on what time of the summer you come, you might even be able to go skiing! 

All this means that when you come to Reno, you've got to be prepared for fun in the sun. Sunblock and lip balm with sun protection can help prevent you from getting an uncomfortable sunburn before you're able to finish your vacation.

Of course, Reno has a variety of pharmacies and stores where you can buy lip balm and sunblock if need be, but who wants to waste their time at a pharmacy when you're in a paradise of beautiful skies and warm temperatures? 

Yoga Mat

If you've never been to Lake Tahoe, you might not be aware of how peaceful it can be. If you like to meditate or do yoga, you'll definitely want to bring your yoga mat for time spent outdoors observing the serene waters and the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains.

Travel yoga mats are best to bring on your trip because they fold down neatly and are designed to fit in your luggage. This makes it easier to bring your yoga mat with you when you take a day trip out to Lake Tahoe from Reno.  

Evening Wear

Reno has over two dozen casinos and a lot more restaurants! When you come, you'll be able to spend every evening gambling, dining, and spending time with your traveling companions. To make this trip complete, you'll need to bring the right evening wear to take with you to the casino. 

Bring something with a little bling or sparkle to it. Remember that Reno is also a town known for its cowboys and cowgirls, so if you're wondering what style works best, look for dresses and stylish clothes that look like they're designed to be worn in the Wild West.
