Getting to Reno
  Reno Travel Tip

reno_entrance.jpg We have gone to Reno from British Columbia every route imaginable. For the longest time we went south on I-5 and turned east at Weed, California. Occasionally we would be held back at the Siskiyou Pass because of snow. One year we were stranded in Yreka for two days because of the snow. You might conclude correctly that we usually go to Reno in the winter months. When we discovered tour buses head east at Eugene, Oregon, on highway 58, that's the road we choose. We have never been delayed since. The road is always clear even when heavy snow falls at Willamette Pass. Sanding trucks are at the ready and of course, we have good all season tires.

When time isn't an issue, we explore different routes, even if it means the long way around. From I-5 roads we've gone east at 299 at Redding and picked up 395 at Alturus or Highway 36 at Red Bluff and even Highway 62 at Medford. Sometimes we've go east at Portland and travel along the Columbia River until Highway 97 and then travel south through Bend or we go east further to Highway 395 at Pendleton. and head south on 395 all the way to Reno. The scenery here is quite different from the forested highways off I-5 in Oregon and California.

Sometimes I want to visit old Sacramento, so we stay on 1-5 and pick up I-80 at Sacramento. I-80 handles all the traffic into Reno from Utah and further east. Travelers arriving from the south arrive via Highway 395 or Highway 95.

Travelers coming from other parts of the United States or other parts of the globe arrive at Reno/Tahoe International Airport.

The Reno/Tahoe International Airport, (775-328-6400) handles most US airlines, including, Alaska Airlines (800-252-7522); America West Airlines (800-235-9292); American Airlines (800-433-7300); Continental Airlines (800-523-3273); Delta Airlines (800-221-1212); Delta Connection-Skywest (775-738-5138) or(800-453-9417); Northwest/KLM Airlines (800-225-2525); Southwest Airlines (800-435-9792); TWA Airlines (800-221-2000) and United Airlines (800-241-6522).

Bus Lines with service and/or tours to Reno include Frontier Tours (775-331-8687, 800-831-2877); Greyhound Lines (775-322-2970, 800-231-2222); and Sierra Nevada Gray Line (775-331-1147, 800-822-6009).
