Default Hot August Nights in Reno, Who's been..?

Just trying to get an idea of what to expect, where to go, how it works...?

Reading their website it sounds like the whole town is a carshow without any one venue being the central spot?

The whole town is a car show. Gets hot in day time so walking thru parking lots is more fun at night. Grand Sierra, Atlantis, Peppermill, Downtown, Downtown Sparks. Auction at convention center across the street from the Atlantis. Swap meet on North end of town. I'll be at Atlantis.

I haven't been to Reno in about 20 Years, but Weld told me it's a Dump!

Given that, I'll be in the Summit "Big Boy Toy Store"

Also had a great time. Just happened to pick a hotel that was on the same corner as the famous sign. Watched the parade of hotrods every night. The weather was perfect, no humidity, no bugs, every night around 6 a breeze would start blowing and not stop.

Apparently the Grand Sierra was the epicenter for all the big parties and hotrods, we missed a lot of that doing more touristy stuff like Tahoe. Speaking of Lake Tahoe, that place was breathtaking! ...but the crowds were insane.

I did not find Reno to be the shizhole it was rumored to be. The area around some of the older casinos is run down but overall not much different than where I'm from. Same bums sleeping in the park, same panhandlers hanging around the casinos. But tons of folks walking dogs, kids playing, people friendly.

Well, since you said Reno was a dump ( and it had changed a lot since I was last there 20 years ago) I was expecting worse.

It was good - the show was busy, a lot of nice cars ( I probably saw 1% of what was there), a lot of good people - made a lot of new friends, Made some $$ in the Casinos, got back to Tampa alive.

Mission Accomplished!
