More Than Casinos: Reno Has Style

Reno Rodeo

Reno Rodeo

Picture yourself at the Reno Rodeo, where the dust kicks up under the hooves of spirited horses, and the crowd cheers for their favorite cowboys and cowgirls. It’s not just an event; it’s a celebration of the rugged, spirited lifestyle that’s been the heartbeat of Reno for ages. The energy is infectious, the sportsmanship is top-notch, and the sense of community is as strong as the bulls in the arena.


Imagine a place where every street corner, park, and gallery bursts with creativity – that’s Artown for you. For an entire month, Reno becomes an explosion of artistic talent, showcasing everything from toe-tapping music performances to awe-inspiring visual arts. It’s a time when the city’s heartbeat syncs with the rhythm of creativity.

Hot August Nights

Step into the time machine of Hot August Nights, where the gleam of polished chrome and the rumble of classic engines take you back to the golden days of rock-n-roll. It’s more than a car show; it’s a community shindig where the tunes are timeless, the atmosphere is buzzing, and every shiny bumper sparkles with stories of yesteryears.

Street Vibrations

Feel the rumble? That’s Street Vibrations rolling into town, bringing with it the roar of motorcycles, the beat of rock music, and a wave of freedom. Leather jackets, friendly faces, and the open road – it’s more than a festival; it’s a tribute to the fearless spirit that defines both the biking community and the city of Reno.

Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off

Get ready to roll up your sleeves and dive into the saucy, smoky goodness of the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off. It’s a finger-licking testament to Reno’s love for great food, fierce competition, and the kind of hospitality that makes everyone feel like family. The air is thick with the aroma of BBQ, and the smiles are as plentiful as the napkins.

Great Reno Balloon Race

The Great Reno Balloon Race

Early in the morning, when the air is still and the sky is a soft canvas, The Great Reno Balloon Race begins. It’s like watching a painter add colorful strokes of color to the sky. Those giant balloons, each with a story of its own, float gently upward, turning the sky into a spectacle of color and wonder. It’s a moment of peace, creativity, and a bit of adventure all rolled into one.

Reno Air Races

Strap in for the high-flying excitement of the Reno Air Races, where skilled pilots push the limits of speed and agility high above the Nevada desert. It’s not just about the roar of the engines or the sleekness of the aircraft; it’s about the human spirit, the thirst for adventure, and the pursuit of excellence that soars in the heart of every Renoite.

Exploring a Little Reno’s History with Swanson Built

Reno’s history is more than a timeline; it’s a living, breathing narrative filled with bold pioneers, transformative moments, and enduring icons. At Swanson Built, we don’t just construct buildings; we craft homes that pay homage to our history, ensuring each one resonates with the warmth and spirit of Reno’s past.

Reno History

The Birth of Reno (1868)

Imagine Reno back in 1868 – a fledgling community by the Truckee River, just starting to find its feet. It’s this spirit of new beginnings and endless possibilities that we channel into every Swanson Built project. We’re not just putting up walls and roofs; we’re laying foundations for futures, building spaces where new stories can unfold.

The Iconic Reno Arch (1926)

Then there’s the Reno Arch, standing since 1926 as more than just a landmark. It’s a symbol of welcome, of resilience, of that proud, shared identity we hold dear in Reno. Every home Swanson Built crafts aims to embody these qualities – a welcoming haven, a resilient shelter, and a proud piece of the community.

The Thrill of Gaming (1931)

Fast forward to 1931, and Reno is abuzz with the excitement of legalized gaming. It’s not just the clink of coins or the shuffle of cards; it’s a vibe, an energy, a promise of good times and shared experiences. We weave this essence into our homes, creating spaces not just for living, but for making memories, for laughter, and for those quiet moments of contentment.
