“iconic Reno landmark”

The Reno Arch is an iconic landmark in Reno, Nevada spanning Virginia Street at the intersection with Commercial Row. The current arch is the third installed at this location. The original arch was built in 1926 to commemorate the completion of the Lincoln and Victory Highways. The current arch was installed in 1987 and retrofitted with new lights in 2009. The arch is a prominent feature of downtown Reno, and for most of its history has featured the city's motto, The Biggest Little City in the World.

I live here. The sign is fine. There's a cool space whale down the street though.

Pose for a picture with the iconic neon sign. The history of the arch dates back to the 1920's, and even though the slogan "The Biggest Little City in the World" was coined for Reno by a resident of Sacramento, it's become pretty important to the city's identity.
