Never has a city's nickname encapsulated its personality more than Reno's has. The Biggest Little City in the World boasts high-end casinos, top-shelf gaming, marquee entertainment, and five-star restaurants, but it's all offset by small-town charm, crisp mountain air, historic railroad tracks, and friendly locals.
With this week's Escape, you and a friend are going big—and paying small—with a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($69) or Fridays and Saturdays ($150) anytime through June, at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino, located just three miles from downtown Reno.
Either way, you're shacking up in 425 square feet of comfort with triple-sheet bedding on a king-size bed, premium channels, pay-per-view movies, and 24-hour room service. Spectacular views of the Truckee River and the Sierra Mountains during the day are rivaled only by big-city views of the Reno skyline at night.
But with all the activities provided by the largest resort in Northern Nevada, it's doubtful you'll spend much time gawking at the view. Settle in with a massage, facial, or body treatment at the world-class Spa and Health Club before testing your luck in the 80,000-square-foot casino. There, you'll get a $25 credit toward slot machine play.
Strike it rich, then strike some pins in the resort's 50-lane bowling alley, where you'll receive four games with your Escape (two games per person). And no need to stop the fun and games there—with miniature golf, indoor golf, go-karts, and more at your fingertips, you'll feel like a little kid in a huge candy store.
But before you indulge your actual sweet tooth, quench your appetite in any of the resort's 11 restaurants—from the fine dining of the world-famous Charlie Palmer steakhouse to the family-friendly hamburgers of Johnny Rockets. Sure, only the high-rollers get the full comps in these eateries but with two buffet tickets to The Lodge, you'll feel like a big, well-fed fish in a small pond.
On your way back to the airport, be sure to salute the iconic arch declaring this legendary city's nickname. It's the least you can do—after all, The Biggest Little City in the World just delivered a little vacation of a lifetime.
