Nevada Museum of Art

Adventures needing an escape from the casino and bright lights can find solace at the Nevada Museum of Art. The building on West Liberty Street has been welcoming art lovers since 1931. It’s the only American Alliance of Museums accredited art museums in the state of Nevada. Entrance is only $10! If there French-inspired restaurant Dining at Chez Louie has a table open, take it. Personally enjoyed some of Chef Mark Estee’s dishes. Recommended.

Being hands on like a child again just got taken to the next level. The Discovery, located in Midtown next to another spotlight destination “Brothers Barbecue” is for the kid at heart. Any adult who’s needing a mind testing, science and technology driven day needs to put this as a priority. Some of the exhibits include playing in the Truckee River, seeing the stars, Da Vinci’s Corner, and hands-on labs. Getting into all this fun will run $13 a ticket, but they also have a deal on Wednesday’s after 4:00 p.m. for $5. Not bad considering it closes at 8:00 p.m.

One of the most interesting dome buildings I’ve ever seen. Right in the heart of downtown Reno lies a golden wonder, with an historic red and yellow walkway. Since 1967, the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts has encompassed the motto of “The Biggest Little City.” Small in stature, but big in presenting an unforgettable experience. Events can range from the Jersey Boys to National Geographic photographers and Baby Shark — do-do-do-do-doo-do. Go downstairs and enjoy some laughs with comedians like Justin Rupple at the Reno-Tahoe Comedy Club. The stadium-style seating with some VIP tables puts everything center-stage, so no one misses a beat of any performance.
