Reno - Moana & Kietzke

View Reno - Moana Lane in a larger map

Moana Lane

EAST of US-395 there is Simply Water – one of the four Water stations in Reno. To get there, go east on Moana, then left on Neil Road, and then left again on Gentry. It will soon be on your left, with the airport being on your right.

Most of the shopping is WEST of US-395/I-580 on Moana. There will be a strip mall on your left with Sportsman’s Warehouse and Aloha Sushi.

Staying on Moana, you come to Kietzke Lane. If you turn left and go south, further down you will find Reno’s largest thrift store, Saver’s, as well as Harbor Freight Tools International.

Peckham Lane is the major cross street here, and turning right (west) onto it, you will soon find your way to the Atlantis Casino Resort (a favorite among some burners). And south of here, you will find the South Virginia and Kietzke Lane hub.

But back on Moana Street, back at Kietzke Lane, you can also access El Monte/Budge RV-Truck Rentals north of this area, one of the few places that still rents trucks and RV’s to Burners. Turning right on Kietzke Lane from Moana, about 1/4 mile up, at Gentry, take a left, and you will find El Monte on your right about 1/2 mile ahead.

The Plumb Lane hub also lies north of here.

Staying on Moana, further west across Virginia, you will at about 3/4 of a mile find Reno’s oldest and one of it’s largest liquor stores, Ben’s Fine Wine & Spirits.
