Sharing is caring!

At one time, Reno, Nevada had the reputation of being the Divorce Capital of the World.  So with that in mind, you may not think of Reno in terms of romance.

But it’s time to change what you think about Reno because it can be a very romantic travel destination for couples.  I think you’ll be convinced once you check out the romantic excursions on this list.  We came up with fifteen incredibly romantic things for you and your partner to do while you are vacationing in Reno.

1. Downtown Pedicab Motorized Tour

Taking a pedicab tour of downtown Reno is a great way to see Reno’s wonderful downtown area.  But it also be quite romantic.  The intimate way you can sit side by side with your partner makes for a very romantic trip.  And a bonus for couples who are climate conscious: this is a zero-emission tour.

And it is a great tour, too.  You get to see the Reno Strip, Wingfield Park, and both the Reno Arches.  You also get to learn about the history of Reno, Nevada and the Truckee River from your knowledgable guide.

2. Midtown Mural Motorized Tour

The Midtown Mural Motorized Tour is also done on an environmentally-friendly pedicab.  So you can sit by your partner in an intimate way.  But in this tour, you get to see over thirty interesting murals around Reno.  These are murals located down the main drag and off the beaten path.

Please note this tour is not suitable for anyone with pre-existing medical conditions, heart problems, or high blood pressure.  It is also not recommended for anyone who is pregnant or anyone who is in a wheelchair.
