Some information about the Reno metropolitan area

UNR is an integral part of the Reno metropolitan area, home to approximately 300,000 people. The 255-acre main campus, located minutes from downtown Reno, features both contemporary and historic architecture, and the university's tree-lined Quadrangle is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The academic atmosphere is filled with rich surroundings for the cultural and intellectual development of the students. Reno is bounded on the west by the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range and on the east by the rolling basin and range province, Reno benefits from a comfortable climate. There are four distinct seasons in this cool, dry climate where the sun shines nearly 290 days a year. The area is noted for its variety of recreational opportunities, which include sailing, camping, hiking, fishing, and sightseeing. Within an hour's drive of the campus, for example, are Lake Tahoe in the High Sierra, and Pyramid Lake, a unique prehistoric desert sea. Also within an hour's drive are a number of nationally known ski areas, including Squaw Valley, site of the 1960 Winter Olympics. Other scenic attractions include Virginia City, setting of one of the West's richest mining bonanzas; Genoa, the state's first pioneer settlement; and Carson City, the Nevada state capital. Reno is within 2 hours' drive from Sacramento and 3.5 hours' drive from San Francisco.
