Going to Reno, Nevada

This highway 95 going to Reno. This city is known as the “Biggest Little City in the World”. It is the second largest tourist destination in Nevada after Las Vegas. It is located in the beautiful north-west region of the State of Nevada, right at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

we are not really on our way to Reno…maybe in my next visit to the U.S.

Driving from From Las Vegas

Don’t be fooled by the fact that Las Vegas and Reno are in the same state – there’s about 9 hours of driving time separating them. Take US 95 north to Fallon, US 50 west to Fernley, and Interstate 80 west to Reno. If you’re not a fan of desert landscapes, boredom is a serious risk on this trip. Winter weather will generally not be a large problem on this trip, but don’t count on being able to find food or fuel outside the major towns (Beatty, Tonopah, Hawthorne, Fallon and Fernley)

During the summer the heat along US 95 can be hard on you and on your vehicle. A much more comfortable alternative to cooking in your car is to drive during the night. Many of the dark stretches between the small towns along US 95 reveal numerous shooting stars and other astral phenomena that you might miss during the baking sun. Keep in mind that driving at night can be dangerous due to the visibility limitations from the hills and the mountains. Be sure to have a lot of rest before undertaking this trip.
