Spent time checking out the area and feeling the old west! Enjoyed a few hours in shops and town. Visited in late September so not everything open, but enjoyed the flavor of the town. Shop owners were very friendly.

A totally western history experience, along with the various sights, and museums in both Virginia City and Nevada City. Go on your own or take in the tour, both are great!

Very quick stop that you can drive up to. Only took 15 minutes to walk around learn some history and take a few pictures. Look out for tour bus. Not a great place to park at when a tour bus is trying to drive around.

Drove up the hill to view the road agents grave sites - found an incredible 360 degree view of the area. Also, a little rodent agent grave site that was too cute to not take a picture of.
