We like to walk around and enjoy other places...is Sierra remote and away from everything? Anywhere to walk?
If you are not a big walker (more than 1.5 miles or so )THIS is not the place for you. You can walk across the very large parking lot to Walmart but there's not a lot else close by other than the casino shops & eateries. Lyft idea is good one but for walking, I;d say no.
Good afternoon, you are only 1.7 miles from the Grand Sierra to downtown Reno and many other casinos and attractions. So you could walk or you could take a local car service. I recommend Lyft. If you do stay there stop by the Bell Desk and speak to one of the clerks, explain to them that you are interested in using the Lyft service and they should give you a Lyft coupon card for one free ride. Get the App sign up and you are ready to go. I was there for educational training and during my stay there I used the service the entire time. All of the drivers own there own vehicles and their cars were spotless. Much, much cheaper than a cab and without the hassle of renting a car. The GSR shuttle runs every 15-30 minutes from the airport and is so convenient. I hope this helps you.
Have a Blessed and Wonderful Day!
