Reno (also known as Reno-Sparks) is the closest major metropolitan area to Black Rock City, and is a great place to get the supplies you need for Burning Man.

We've designated a number of Shopping Hubs along I-80 (East - West) and US-395 (North - South), which criss-cross each other near the middle of Reno-Sparks, so you can pick the most convenient one(s) for your trajectory. Nearby towns of Verdi, Carson City, Wadsworth, and Fernley, as well as Pyramid Lake are also included. If you know about a business, or you're looking for a specific item, look at the Resource Categories, which include links to the Shopping Hub where stores are located, so you can see what other resources are nearby.
