Walk the Neon Line

Walk Reno's Neon Line in Downtown

Reno’s new art installation in downtown celebrates two of Reno’s biggest draws: Burning Man and neon lights. The Reno Neon Line is a block of dynamic streetscape featuring rotating Burning Man art, other sculptures, and bright lights—including nine historic and restored neon signs. It also includes a permanent Wind Wall, which changes colors based on weather patterns.

Walk it in the early evening to get an intriguing slice of the lights and impressive installations (some are larger than life, most literally!). To immerse yourself more into the Burning Man inspiration, stop in for a visit at The Generator, an inclusive nonprofit space for making, inventing, learning, and supporting anyone who wants to create and collaborate.
