Once a year we ask you, our readers, to select your favorite spots to splurge, pig out, and pamper yourselves; your preferred places to hit the slopes, swing your clubs, and dance the night away; and your go-to destinations for rolling the dice, taking in a show, and resting your head. And we take your answers seriously—so seriously, in fact, that we call them the Best of Nevada.
Some of this year’s winners take home multiple awards—Reno’s Peppermill Resort Spa Casino won best casino, hotel, nightclub, spa, and wedding venue. Some return to defend their “Best of” titles: Cactus Creek Prime Steakhouse at Reno’s Bonanza Casino and Great Basin Brewing Company in Reno and Sparks have each won numerous times. Some make their first Best of Nevada appearances—The Mob Museum in Las Vegas and Reno’s Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum both opened within the last year.
