Reno's Downtown Riverwalk District is defined as the area along the Truckee River between Arlington Avenue and Lake Street. It features over three dozen established shops, boutiques, galleries, salons, restaurants, pubs, lounges, and specialty retailers, plus a number of new merchants located in the West Street Market.
The Downtown Riverwalk places considerable emphasis on arts and entertainment, eco-friendly themes, delicious dining, and cultural events. For example, on the third Saturday of each month from 2pm to 5pm, a popular Wine Walk is conducted to benefit local charities. For $20, each visitor receives a glass to use for sampling wine at participating merchants. Event and entertainment schedules are published monthly, too, as a guide to all of the art and creativity that the district offers, from exhibits to live music, food tastings, and more.
Activities in the district are overseen by the Riverwalk Merchants Association. Their address is P.O. Box 1606, Reno, Nevada 89505. Most of the venues are open seven days a week from 11am to 10pm. Plenty of public parking is available in the area, much of it free of charge after 5pm on weekdays and all day long on weekends and holidays.
