We don’t get downtown much as a family, although Lightning Dragon and I do get our haircuts in The Basement at the coolest barber shop in Reno. The city recently installed another sculpture in the plaza by the river and it’s something I figured the kids would like. I generally DGAF about burning man stuff, but I do like space, and whales and I don’t begrudge spending money on art.
It’s cool and you should definitely check it out.
We also went to the perennial favorite, Discovery Museum which is just a few blocks down the road. The Disco has a bunch of cool things for the kids to interact with and learn from including the T-Rex Named Sue exhibit.
But Rocket’s favorite is the glider they have set up where you can sit in the cockpit and slam the controls back and forth as hard as you can. Lightning Dragon likes the cloud climber. So those are the things we focused on for this quick trip. We have memberships, so we stop by often.
