(This is the 1st in a series of blogs about the many fun things to do in Reno and the surrounding areas)


Virginia City Nevada 

Take a drive to Virginia City (about 23 miles outside Reno) and plan to stay for a few hours.  It’s about a 30 – 45 minute drive up a curvy road and well worth it.  Park your car and walk up the old wooden walkways to all the stores, saloons, museums and more.  Take a train ride through the historic mining areas, it takes about 35 minutes.  Take the kids through the fudge factory and watch them make all sorts of sweets and of course taste them all.  You can even take a tour of an old mine.  One of the many historic buildings include Pipers Opera House.  Built in 1885 and still being used.  Mark Twain, Buffalo Bill and President Grant were among the many to set foot of the stage. Don’t forget the ever popular old time photos with your family or friends.  My family and I have taken many trips to the Old Time City.  It really is a lot of fun and great history.

Be sure to visit my Calendar of Events page for all of Reno's events throughout the year.
