Sightseeing
Since Reno is the closest city to Burning Man, the spirit of the annual event is evident throughout the city year-round. And while tickets to the event can be hard to come by, several Burning Man art installations reside permanently in downtown Reno at City Plaza and Playa Art Park for all to enjoy. In addition to these pieces, you can find public art throughout Reno, whether it’s murals gracing the walls of buildings in downtown and Midtown or sculptures along the Truckee River.
