Another Reno nugget: according to Wikipedia, “I’m going to Reno” used to stand for “I’m off to get a divorce.” And that probably still stands, in a way – if your spouse whisked you off to Reno on a romantic break, you’d probably be heading the same way. Paris it aint - either the French or Vegas versions.
This one is the third arch, built in 1987, but it's still an awesome sight. And it's not half bad in the daytime either, although there are a few friendly homeless people hanging around it. If you like retro Vegas, you’ll like the arch.
Btw, the enviro-fans will be pleased to know that the arch is lit with energy efficient LED bulbs. They replaced the old incandescent ones in 2009.
