Reno is a prototype of Las Vegas.
It’s no less vibrant with the noise from the slot machines, games of poker played in the casino and pulsating nightlife, but Reno is smaller than Las Vegas. This peculiarity earned the city the reputation of the "biggest little city in the world".

The town of Reno was established as a past of Charles Fuller’s business. He constructed a bridge across the Truckee River to Virginia City where gold was found. The businessmen charged a fee to cross the bridge, but provided gold-seekers with a house to rest their head. In addition, when the railroad arrived in Nevada, Reno was officially established. Reno grew rapidly thanks to its riverside location that played a vital role to farmland east of Reno.
With the times Reno abandoned agriculture to sustain itself through gambling. As a result it earned the reputation of "Sin City" for the illegal gambling, and easy divorces. The first high-rise to combine hotel and casino arrived to the city under the name of Mapes Hotel in 1947. Since then hotel business and service-based economy has contributed to the lion’s share to the city’s budget. Today you can stay in any hotel in Reno with Booked.net.
