Now Trending: Find a different you this fall with these new Reno/Tahoe opportunities

The Adventurer You

Be one of the first to experience Tahoe suspended from above atop the newest climbing route in Squaw Valley called The Tahoe Via Feratta by Alpenglow Expeditions. Opening this fall, this style of routes are popular in Europe and Canada, as they bring an exciting taste of rock-climbing and mountaineering, without needing any prior experience. Imagine an installed cable wrapped around the mountainside, allowing you to safely scale the exposed rock and enjoy the thrilling views. Choose a half- or full-day tour guided by Alpenglow Expeditions.


The Creative You

Out with the paint and in with the plants. Let your imagination take root at Succulents & Wine, the newest DIY attraction in Reno! Create a trendy cacti or whimsical succulent while sipping your favorite rose. These hot houseplants are perfect for those without a green thumb (like me). This is a great mid-week attraction for a relaxed evening out. Friends and I went for happy hour, going from Wednesday – Friday from 4 to 7 p.m., with wine specials and discounted plants! It’s as easy as picking your container, plant, pebbles and fairy garden flare … then let your creativity grow.


The Foodie You

Holey Schmidt! These donuts are good. Even better than the play on words, these fried rounds of goodness can be found inside The Terry Lee Wells Discovery Museum in downtown Reno. You’ll have a hard time choosing between the delectable 50 – 75 unique flavors baked daily, so go for at least two donuts with a cup of locally roasted Old World Coffee to dip in. My favorites are the oreo cheesecake, overfilled Nutella, and the traditional old fashioned with cinnamon and sugar. @holeyschmidtdonuts


Elevating You

We all know a healthy body and mind leads to a healthy life and spirit, but why is it such a challenge for most? More often than not, health care and wellness are two separate entities … until now. A new state-of-the-art, 26,000-square-foot facility has blended these two practices. Introducing the Barton Center for Orthopedics & Wellness located in the Robert Maloff Center. Under one roof you’ll find a proactive healthier care model to meet your needs when you visit the Reno/Tahoe area, creative a “whole-istic” approach for preventive care, blending multi-disciplinary orthopedics, rehabilitation, performance-based training programs and overall wellness. Be well, live well.
