Three Reasons to Welcome Fall in Northern Nevada

Northern Nevada is a wonderful place that offers all four seasons. Sometimes that means 100+ degree weather and other times that means a blanket of snow. However in the fall that means beautiful colors and even better weather. So, why not take advantage of those perfect conditions, along with some long-awaited seasonal events and activities.

Outdoor Activities

The combination of cooler weather, leaves turning colors, and fewer irritants to battle allergies makes fall one of the best times of years to enjoy the great outdoors in Northern Nevada. Hiking, fishing, off road adventures, camping…you name it. Plus the fewer crowds this time of year means a staycation may be in order.  Check out the many outdoor activities to enjoy in Nevada right now.

Wolf Pack Football

The return of fall also means the return of our beloved Wolf Pack Football. This year the Pack has seven home games (though unfortunately the UNLV game is in Las Vegas this year). Greater Nevada Credit Union will be joining the Wolf Pack Marching band at each home game to support The Pack and so should you! “For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.”

The UNR campus has also undergone many changes over the past couple of years. As an alumni myself, I encourage you to check out the new buildings and dorms while there.

Fall Events

Haunted House at Greater Nevada Field: For 11 years, Reno Fright Fest has been the most attended haunted house in Northern Nevada. Why not check out this spooky attraction that’s fun, if not a little terrifying, for the whole family. This year visitors can expect new rooms, custom scares, and more.

Bowl for the Gold: As the fall weather transitions into winter, why not enjoy an evening indoors at the renowned National Bowling Stadium in Reno. Bowl for the Gold is an annual tournament hosted by Special Olympics Nevada that lets you experience the fun and excitement of bowling with our local Special Olympics athletes.
