For a Healthy Stay

Don't forget about the elevation. Visitors to this beautiful region are often surprised to learn that Reno itself is 4500 feet above sea level. This may not sound like much, but it's a good idea to keep yourself hydrated during your stay. Take advantage often of the water breaks available at the VETS2014 meeting venues and drink water liberally with meals and activities.

With the Sierra Mountains for a backdrop, Reno rises to meet your every expectation and more. The changing face of Reno Tahoe is on display, from a redeveloped downtown corridor to new destination shopping venues, and more. Only 45 minutes from Lake Tahoe, this region promises you excitement and adventure around every corner. Northern Nevada is your one-stop for everything your heart desires. From bustling city venues to historical landmarks to peaceful and tranquil settings, Northern Nevada has it all. Whatever your pleasure, Northern Nevada is sure to deliver.

The Silver Legacy Hotel will offer a group rate of $79.00 (plus taxes & fees) Sunday through Thursday, pre or post conference or a rate of $99.00 for Friday and Saturday, for Deluxe Rooms. Reserve your room online or call the hotel directly. For phone reservations, please reference "VETS14" to receive the group's negotiated event rate.  The conference negotiated rate expires Sunday, May 25, 2014, 11:59 pm EST.
