Bet on U-Haul for your move to Reno, NV
Welcome to ‘The Biggest Little City in the World’! Known primarily for casinos and the Reno arch, there is more to the city than you think. During the time of the California Gold Rush in 1859, a toll bridge was built across the Truckee River creating a much-needed connection between Virginia City and the California Trail. Known as ‘Lakes Crossing’ at the time, it became the largest town in the county within only a matter of a few years. The city was officially re-named Reno in 1868 and is now home to more than 225,000 residents; it continues to grow in population each year. You’ll be sure to enjoy this historic and exciting city.
