Jimmy Beans Wool while Dave did a little gambling at the casino. I rode the hotel shuttle to the airport and then took a taxi to the store. I'd seen Jimmy Beans ads in my knitting magazines and was quite excited to go! It was 3 miles from the airport in kind of a funny business park location but well worth the trip.
Sierra Spirit bus up to the University to the Historical Society to learn a little about the area. You would have thought we were local celebrities because they were just thrilled that a couple from Minnesota wanted to come to their museum. They didn't even charge us admission! Reno is 220,000ish people and the rest of the non-downtown city that we saw was just a normal city. Downtown is great if all you want to do is bowl or drink or gamble.
Reno Bead Shop. I got some turquoise and some size 8/0 seed beads for knitting. I also picked up some corral beads and some size 11/0 seed beads. I just loved the mint green ones. They remind me of jadeite bowls. We checked out the river walk and enjoyed the 78 degree weather while out walking.
