We drove under the sign on our way to our south side motel. Really cool actually seeing the sign ( or replacement sign ), that I've seen on so many old movies.

Always fun to see the arch. A new one is there too. We suggest a few minutes while in downtown Reno to get a photo of the arch and walk about the area. In addition there is a river walk area nearby....do it.

We took a walk on a cool Sunday morning to see the downtown area and the arch. Please be prepared as the vagrants are numerous that you need to walkthrough. We were with young children and got to hear some choice profanity and view some...More

I spent some time in Reno on business recently. I could not wait to see "the sign". I was not disappointed. The picture is worth a thousand words.

We were just driving through Nevada on out way North through the state, and we decided to exit and see the downtown area. I had forgotten about this Biggest Little City Sign, so it was fun when we passed under it.

The roads were closed when I went, which gave me a great photo opportunity and it was walking distance from my hotel!

It says a great deal about Reno's lack of attractions when this is put forward as a major attraction.

This Arch first built in 1926 & we were first there in 1963 & again 1981, the current Arch according to Wikipedia was installed 1987 & retrofitted with new lights in 2009. I'm so glad they've taken care of it so will be there many...More

This is a great place to take pictures lots of homeless folks hang in the area but they are harmless and the cops on bikes ride by a lot so it was very safe and you can take great pictures in the area.

There's nothing here that isn't done as well or better almost anywhere else you can travel to. Take your "Reno picture" here and then move on.

Yes, there are two. Nobody really wants to see the old one though, unless you're on your way to get cocktails at the Foxy Olive.

You can self park at the Silver Legacy for free and walk the short distance to the arch. I would suspect the other casinos have free self parking as well.
