I normally go every year but not this year. The morning shows on Fremont Street Wednesday to Saturday draw some great cars , last year Poteet's Talledaga amongst others of that caliber, then in the afternoon and evening you have a choice of several other shows. Atlantis, Peppermill, Grand Sierra, Sparks and a few smaller ones. Cruising on Fremont downtown and in Sparks every evening. Get the schedule in the local free paper.

I was there last year for the first time, not going this year, but definitely a cool experience if your a car guy. I stayed down town, and everybody I came across was cool. when I get my project done, I will go again...

I was there last year with some friends and had a great time. Went to Barrett Jackson and many of the Casino car shows. That is the 3 rd trip that I have made to it and it is always a great time. I have never felt unsafe and I have attended in 94, 98 and 2013. I heard that around 2000 to 2009 or so that there were some problems with gang bangers. That has since been rectified and now all shows and cruising closes at 10pm each night to deter that activity.

I say go and have a great time and I bet that you will feel completely comfortable and safe the entire time.

We are flying out...2000 miles is to far for me to drive.
Staying at the Peppermill. Not sure where to go or what to see but I will figure it out.
I assumed Reno was a smaller version of Vegas but I understand it is not and much more spread out.

1998 was the riots downtown. Got a picture under the Reno sign on Virginia St. with the riot police and horses behind us.

Gone the last 18 years and this is the first one I will not attend voluntarily.
