Midtown Reno is a vibrant community hub with 150 businesses in the area and some of the best food, art, and bars Reno has on offer. A few blocks south of the Truckee River, Midtown has undergone dramatic changes in the last decade.

Construction completed in 2020 transformed Midtown, creating wider sidewalks, expanded lighting, more event space, and accessible public transit. Now one of Reno’s most walkable neighborhoods, Midtown has a little something to offer everybody.
