Reno

geographical name    (Concise Encyclopedia)

City (pop., 2000: 180,480), western Nevada, U.S. It is located on the Truckee River, near the California border, Lake Tahoe, and the Sierra Nevada foothills. Until 1900 it was primarily a distribution point, but, after several well-known people were granted divorces or were quickly married there under liberal state laws, it became famous as a busy divorce and marriage centre. It is also a year-round vacation centre. When gambling was legalized in Nevada in 1931, Reno began to attract tourists to its many casinos.
