View Reno - West McCarran and Mae Anne in a larger map

You’re finally rolling into Reno. You can see the casino-hotels in the distance.

Exit #10, West McCarran Blvd is a shopping area with lots of what you might need.

Home Depot is right here next to the exit for hardware and some camping needs. Take a right and then make your first turn veering onto Summit Ridge Drive.

North of I-80 on McCarran and within a half mile you have Save Mart Supermarket, Safeway, a WalMart, some gas stations, lots of sit-down and fast-food dining options, a pharmacy, and several banks. Traffic and parking is plentiful, and getting in and out of the shopping centers is relatively easy for vehicles of all sizes.

South of the exit, down McCarran about a mile, on your left you will come to a home away from home, the Wildflower Village, with Hostel, Bed-and-Breakfast, Coffeeshop with Wifi, and art gallery. See below for details.
