Reno Riverwalk, Reno, NV
Why It’s Cool: The formal downtown river walk follows both banks of the Truckee River for half a mile. Professional kayakers run its up-to-class-3 rapids; during summer, Tahoe Whitewater Tours gives guided inflatable-kayak float trips on the city’s churning waters. More sedentary types like to sip the prosecco-based Ring Toss—named for divorcées tossing rings into the river in this quicky-divorce town—on the patio of the aptly named Wild River Grille.
Don’t Miss: The impressive National Automobile Museum, which features a 1936 Mercedes-Benz Roadster worth more than $3 million.
