BEST TIME TO VISIT RENO, NEVADA
The best time to visit Reno depends on what you value most. If the goal of your visit is gaming, than any time is fine. But there are some particularities that can help you decide.
If you want to enjoy the high season, with its glamour and the crowds fever, May through October are the best months.
Animation attains a peak in the Summer (in close connection with the Tahoe Lake pole), when temperatures are particularly agreeable.
Obviously, if you want to ski in Reno's surroundings, then the best months to visit Reno are November through May.
Don't forget that accommodation and services prices reach higher levels in the high season and also in:
- Memorial Day and Labour Day (due to the combination of weekend rates with holiday demands).
- New Year's Eve and the days around it.
- Thanksgiving four days weekend.
Be also aware of the differences between weekdays and weekends. Gambling calls big crowds on weekends, and accommodation prices begin to rise on Saturdays and Fridays...
WHEN NOT TO GO TO RENO
If you want to beat the crowds, then... avoid the Summer months, holidays and weekends.
If you want better accommodation rates, avoid Reno's high season (and weekends and specially packed periods: Memorial Day, Labour Day, New Year's Eve period, or Thanksgiving).
If you want to avoid the extreme cold, then do not go in the Winter (see the table below, for details on temperature, snow and precipitation)
