Over 200 Classic Cars on Display at National Automobile Museum

Summer is right around the corner, and it is time to start making vacation plans. There are big cities that naturally come to mind when you are planning a trip, but you may want to dig a little bit deeper and broaden your horizons.

Everybody has been to Las Vegas, and the city is indeed a spectacular destination. However, it is not the only possibility within the Silver State. Reno is another city in Nevada that offers great opportunities for classic car lovers.

Reno has been dubbed “The Biggest Little City in the World,” and this is an apt description. It's very easy to get around, there are great hotels, you can gamble if you want to, and you can indulge your love of classic cars.

If you can make it to Reno during the end of the summer you can attend Hot August Nights, which is one of the coolest classic car events anywhere. There are countless cars on display with people coming from all over the country to participate.

They have concerts, food, and general Nevada-style revelry all throughout the month. Reno has a much more moderate climate than Las Vegas, so the weather in August lends itself well to outdoor events.

When you are in Reno you can also visit the National Automobile Museum. This is one of the top classic car museums in the entire country, and it contains over 200 spectacular motor vehicles.

There are various different exhibits, including a celebrity auto exhibit that is absolutely mind-boggling. They have a 1928 Ford Model A that was owned by the legendary early motion picture star Mary Pickford. There is also a 1933 Cadillac that was owned by Al Jolson, John Wayne's 1953 Corvette, and the 1949 Mercury that was driven by James Dean in the movie "Rebel Without a Cause."

The National Automobile Museum in Reno is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and it's open from 10:00 to 4:00 on Sundays. Admission is ten bucks for adults, and students between the ages of 6 and 18 get in for just four dollars. Admission is free for kids under the age of six.

All true classic car fans should definitely make the pilgrimage to the National Automobile Museum, and if you can make it during Hot August Nights, you are in for a truly memorable experience.
