The county seat of Washoe County, nestled at the foot of Sierra Nevada in a high desert valley, famous for the casinos and the nightlife, Reno, Nevada has a reputation for high end fun. The Reno, Nevada yellow pages are filled with places to visit and things to see. Downtown is one of the most popular spots for natives and tourists alike. West Market Street is full of renovated historic buildings closely guarding an open urban market. La Bussola and Center Gallery, the Reno Philharmonic, and the Nevada Shakespeare Company are just a few of the almost never ending list of things that one will find in the Reno, Nevada yellow pages. Traveling on business one would need to look no further than the Reno, Nevada business directory to find everything one would need for the stay. From financial advisers to interior decorating to the all night wedding chapels that are so widely raved about; almost any business that would be needed for business or pleasure can be found in the Reno, Nevada business directory.
With a steppe climate Reno weather is very dry. In the height of summertime the temperature reaches to the low 90s and in the winter the temperature reaches a high of 45 degrees. Very little rain keeps the party going until way past dawn.
Historically, Reno is steeped in gold and silver. Although a modest find of gold happened in 1850 and a small community was built up; the mother lode was hit with the discovery of silver in 1859. This was known as the Comstock Lode and soon a burgeoning city was built around it. It wasn't until the transcontinental railroad came into being at Promontory, Utah that Reno officially got its name. One Myron C. Lake had previously dubbed the town as Lake's Crossing but when Mr. Lake realized the boon that came with the railroad he renamed the city after Jesse Lee Reno, a Union officer who died at the Battle of South Mountain in the Civil War. A trip to Caesar's Palace, Harrah's or The Great Reno Balloon Race will leave even the most skeptical of people in awe when the finally have to return to their own little towns.
