You don’t have to venture into the great outdoors to stay active this winter
As winter sets in, many people are looking forward to spending chilly evenings by an open fire. Winter sports aren’t for everyone—but prolonged idleness can lead to a serious sense of cabin fever. In Reno, you can find a variety of activities to work your body and mind, without strapping on a set of skies or a snowboard.
Those hoping for an all-in-one option can find it at Wild Island Coconut Bowl, next to Legends at Sparks. The 40-lane bowling complex also features glow-in-the-dark miniature golf. What makes Coconut Bowl so great is the how well it fits for a family of all ages, with many options depending on the mood of the night. Whether you are feeling a bit limber and want to take on the laser maze, or your dad wants to prove his marksmanship in the 3-D zombie shooter arcade ride—Coconut Bowl has something for everybody.
