Reno bowling is a good old-fashioned way to have fun with the family. Reno, Sparks, and Carson City have a good selection of bowling alleys from which to choose. When it's cold outside (or too hot), a family bowling outing is a great activity. For those who don't want to bowl, or aren't quite big enough to roll a bowling ball, most bowling alleys have amusement game arcades and plenty of food for snacking.
This is the best amusement park in the Truckee Meadows. It's probably better known for its water slide park, but there are year-round family activities available, including the cool Coconut Bowl.
