Nighttime safety

Is it unthinkable to walk from the Silver Legacy to other downtown casinos after dark? 8 or 9pm? What is the area like? Vegas was hopping 24/7 with plenty of police presence. Is Reno the same?

You'll be fine, walking the casinos around SL, including Harrahs. By yourself, being female, you probably wouldn't want to walk to the Siena, though even that walk I wouldn't call un-safe. Just isn't worth the walk, IMO.

Eldo-SL-Circus are connected indoors.

I would also encourage you to catch the bus to Peppermill. Nicest place in town. New bus station is safe, and two blocks east of SL/Eldorado. Other side of the domed bowling center. "Rapid" line bus is fastest.

Well, downtown Reno certainly isn't anywhere as busy and populated as the Vegas strip, but it's absolutely safe, and I see police on bicycles in that area frequently.

Downtown casinos, through Cal-Neva, to Siena. This is the best route to take. I stay at the Siena often and this works well for going to other casinos.

I'm here and the streets outside are, sadly, full of homeless people and really drunk people. Maybe not unsafe, but really sad and sketchy. Unlike Vegas, there are no normal businesses mixed in with the casinos, like you have to walk blocks to a Walgreens. Very sad.

Yes there are homeless, but not as many as other Years.. and all cities have the homeless.

Got a Laugh out of the fellow, , with the cardboard sign, Saying "Hit me with a Quarter if you can" well worth a shot and a Laugh... He is between Harrahs and Eldorado , .

I noticed in Vegas this year there were many more homeless on the streets and on the walkways over the strip. Guys with signs saying yes be truthful the money was for drink/drugs! People with cats too?? Just awful. Also when we drove to Santa Monica there were lots there aswell. Yes all cities have the homeless as JoLee said and we are no different here in the U.K. but not so many as we saw in Vegas that's for sure. We are coming to Reno next May and very much looking forward to it.

What resort did you pick? One with a Pool for May would be good.
