CHOOSE YOUR OWN CARSON VALLEY ADVENTURE Your next great vacation is closer than you think. In a reachable 45-minute drive south of Reno on Highways 580 and 395, or just 12 miles east of South Lake Tahoe, Carson Valley offers an abundance of escapes from routine. Bask in the possibilities and let Mother Nature take care of the itinerary. What adventure will you choose today? • Soak in breathtaking vistas, framed by the majestic Sierra Nevada range, as you golf one of the valley’s championship courses. • Smell wildflowers and listen to the rhythm of your own hiking boots as you set off to discover miles of trails. • Leave the earth behind and play among the clouds as you soar over the landscape in a modern sail plane. • Wade in and cast your line in waters that range from high desert lakes to rolling rivers. • Watch out for Jackrabbit crossings as you motocross through the high desert. Or use pedal power to explore the mountains by bike. After all this is the great American West, shouldn’t the choices be as big as the landscape? When the suns goes down, rest up at any of the Carson Valley’s outstanding and comfortable accommodations. Get your sleep because the adventure continues tomorrow.

How to use the 2015 Visitors Guide Nevada is a wide-open expanse of mountains, valleys, lakes, and most of all, roads. A seemingly endless network of paved highways, gravel roads, and dirt paths link adventures together.

Ruby Mountains

This guide will help you plan your road trip through Nevada, with a variety of itineraries that cover nearly every inch of the state. Learn how to experience Vegas like a local, or eat your way through Nevada like a foodie. You will find our suggestions for the best photo ops in the state, as well as a look at what’s new. The note pages interspersed throughout the guide are for you to jot down your thoughts or sketch out your own itinerary. Love the cover? There’s a postcard version of it tucked inside, along with a recipe from one of Lake Tahoe’s best Italian restaurants, and a card that will save you some dough at Nevada’s state museums. Toward the back of this guide, you will find information on our state territories, the geographic regions that make up the Silver State. We have also compiled a list of hotels, motels, bed-and-breakfasts, and RV parks. We hope you will keep this guide handy while you’re visiting Nevada – all 110,560 square miles of it! Let your adventures begin!

Day 4 DEATH VALLEY: Gas up the car, buy food and water and sunscreen in Pahrump, and then venture into the unparalleled landscape that is Death Valley National Park. Some of the park’s highlights easily visited in one day are Dante’s View, Badwater Basin, Devil’s Golf Course, Artists Palette, Zabriskie Point, and Furnace Creek. The park is open year-round, but some services are limited in the summer months.

Day 3 GOLDFIELD, DISTANCE: 94 MILES/151 KM, AND ANY EXTRA EXPLORING YOU DECIDE TO DO: You’ll begin heading south on U.S. 95 toward Las Vegas, but don’t worry, your adventure is far from over. Take your time driving through Goldfield, about 30 minutes south of Tonopah, and stop at the Goldfield High School, where the famed Nelson-Gans boxing match of 1906 took place. This changed the face of boxing in the West and put the then-booming town of Goldfield on the map.

BEATTY: Your next stop is only an hour away in Beatty, and this will be your base camp for the next 24 hours. Beatty is the eastern gateway to Death Valley National Park; from here you can access such iconic sites as Zabriskie Point, Badwater Basin, Devil’s Golf Course, and Artist’s Drive. Return to Beatty at your leisure and sidle on up to the bar at the town’s old-fashioned saloons and restaurants.

Day 4 PAHRUMP, DISTANCE: 150 MILES/241 KM: On your way out of town, take the short detour to Rhyolite, one of the most photographed ghost towns in the West. It’s well worth the 10-minute drive from Beatty on your way to Pahrump. Pahrump is a bustling bedroom community to Las Vegas and home to two of Nevada’s four wineries. We recommend staying long enough to eat some lunch and taste some wine before continuing on to Las Vegas. You’ve come a long way, and now it’s time to end your trek in Las Vegas. But the fun doesn’t have to stop: you are in the Entertainment Capital of the World, after all!

Range about a half-hour south of Ely. These ovens were used in the 1870s to slowly burn wood and transform it into charcoal, which was used by the nearby silver mines. Visitors still can smell a hint of pungent smoke seeping from the 20-inch-thick stone walls.

CAVE LAKE STATE PARK: A glistening high-elevation lake in the middle of the Schell Creek Range beckons hikers, anglers, and adventure junkies all year long. Just far enough off the main highway to get away with a little mischief, the lake is also home to some seriously offbeat events, including bathtub races affectionately called “Cocktails and Cannons” for the drinks and random cannon-firing that happens throughout the July weekend. The lake freezes in winter and hosts the White Pine Fire & Ice Show in January. This ice-sculpture competition is punctuated by fireworks in the evening hours. When you arrive in Ely, only 20 minutes from Cave Lake, you’ll have a wide selection of hotels and restaurants to help you refresh from your journey through eastern Nevada. From here, you can plan a side trip to Great Basin National Park, only an hour from Ely. Great Basin is the only national park entirely within Nevada, and boasts wonderful hiking trails, ancient bristlecone pine trees, and all-season access to the Lehman Caves.

A hot-tub-sized dipping pool has been created at the upper spring and is lined with flat stones, offering a very primitive version of a hot tub. The lower spring offers a smaller metal dipping pool where you can regulate the temperature of the water flowing through a small pipe. The water flowing out of the tub continues on its path downhill, creating several smaller

According to Bureau of Land Management, the area includes seven semi-primitive camping facilities (parking areas and fire pits), a vault toilet, and walking trails that lead to the springs.

Northern Nevada NEVADA HISTORICAL SOCIETY: For serious history buffs, this museum adjacent to the University of Nevada, Reno, is a gold mine of historical manuscripts, artifacts, and collections. Make this your first stop if you want to set the foundation for understanding Nevada’s past and future.

NEVADA STATE MUSEUM: An underground mine exhibit, a life-size ghost town, the silver service from the USS Nevada, and a working coin press from the historic Carson City Mint. Yeah, you could spend some time here. The State Museum is in downtown Carson City, an easy walk from the Capitol, the Governor’s Mansion, and the Kit Carson Trail walking tour. The coin press fires up once a month and on special occasions, providing a glimpse into early American coin making and the Comstock boom.

NEVADA STATE RAILROAD MUSEUM:

NEVADA STATE RAILROAD MUSEUM: All aboard! The highlight of this railroad museum in Boulder City is the 45-minute ride aboard the Nevada Southern Railway. Restored Pullman cars trek over the tracks that were laid to transport supplies to nearby Hoover Dam. It’s truly a trek through time.

LOST CITY MUSEUM: The Lost City Museum was built in 1935 by the National Park Service to exhibit artifacts excavated from Pueblo Grande de Nevada, which was soon to be flooded by Lake Mead, created with the construction of Hoover Dam. While the museum tells the story of our American Indian ancestors, its very existence is a testament to the forced migration of people, water and land as immigrants moved farther West.

Eastern Nevada EAST ELY DEPOT MUSEUM: The state’s industrial development through mining and transportation are on full display here in the Depot Building and Freight Barn adjacent to the Nevada Northern Railway. After perusing the mining and railroad exhibits in the museum, buy a train ticket and ride the historic Ghost Train.

Only a mile south of downtown Carson City is the Nevada State Railroad Museum, a fascinating collection of locomotives, passenger and freight cars, and artifacts from Nevada’s railroad past. A working railway encircles the site and provides train rides on select weekends throughout the year. Don’t miss the historic McKeen Motor Car or the newly restored Glenbrook steam engine.

The Fine Art Gallery at Bellagio brings world-renowned names like Fabergé, Warhol, O’Keefe, and Monet to the glitzy Las Vegas Strip. Picasso can be found at the restaurant of the same name in the Bellagio, and Leonardo Da Vinci’s life and work is on display at the Venetian. Nevada and neon just naturally go together, which is why the Neon Museum in Downtown Las Vegas has become one of the most visited art collections in Nevada. Neon signs from Nevada’s yesteryear are on display in an outdoor gallery that takes visitors along a tale of the rise of gaming in the Silver State. Near the eastern entrance to Death Valley sits the ghost town of Rhyolite, a collection of wood and stone ruins… and a brilliant outdoor art gallery. The Goldwell Open Air Museum was created by a group of prominent Belgian artists and is anchored by the haunting “Last Supper” sculpture.

Perhaps the best way to sample northern Nevada golf is to try the Divine Nine, a collection of nine courses in and around Carson City. Play one course per trip, or book several courses together for a seriously tee-rific golf vacation. Venture to Southern Nevada to find the mecca of desert golf in Mesquite, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. There are nine courses in this quiet oasis, and the mild desert climate makes it a year-round recreation destination. Las Vegas doesn’t do anything small, and its golf courses are no exception. From the toprated Bali Hai Golf Club on the Strip to the uberexclusive Wynn Golf Club, golf is more than a pastime in Las Vegas. If a family getaway is your excuse to golf, check out Primm, about 45 minutes southwest of Las Vegas near the California border. Primm boasts two desert courses within an easy drive of the Fashion Outlets and the Primm Valley Casino Resorts. Why is this important? Because your family can shop, lounge by a pool, order room service, and ride roller coasters while you swing your clubs in serenity. Win-win!

Austin, Nevada: The town of Austin is located in the middle of rural Nevada, a vast stretch of country with beautiful panoramic scenery. While exploring this magnificent wide-open space, travelers can take time out to soak in the warm, soothing waters of Spencer Hot Springs. These natural springs give hot tubbing an entirely new meaning.

So Much To Do!

Back in town, the Main Street of Austin is a great place to visit historic Old West businesses, past and present. There’s also dining and for an overnight stay, comfortable and friendly motels. Austin, Nevada: where adventurous souls meet.

400 INCHES OF SNOW - 300 DAYS OF SUNSHINE Highest concentration of ski resorts in North America This is Lake Tahoe. The Nevada side of Tahoe adds 24-hour nightlife, worldclass entertainment, easy access to the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and a wide variety of hotel and resort accommodations.

HEAVENLY MOUNTAIN RESORT: This resort spans the Nevada-California border and boasts the most skiable terrain

Tahoe and Reno. Mt. Rose’s real claim to fame is The Chutes, double-blackdiamond runs with some of the longest vertical in North America. For years, skiers risked their season passes by sneaking into this previously closed terrain because it is THAT good. Mt. Rose officially brought the Chutes into its groomed terrain in 2004 with designated gate entry only.

at the lake and the most vertical feet on the West Coast. The resort is accessible from base lodges on both the Nevada and California sides, as well as by a gondola at the state line. You could call this the granddaddy of Tahoe ski resorts, but it’s not your granddaddy’s resort. Three terrain parks and the High Roller Half Pipe welcome hotshot boarders and skiers of all ages. But send the little ones home before hitting the Unbuckle Apres Party at Tamarack Lodge. This is an adultsonly weekend slopeside party with killer drink specials, live DJs, and dancers that could melt the ice off the Arctic Circle. Not a skier? Not to worry. Heavenly has one of the biggest and baddest tubing hills, named the best tubing hill in America by Fox News.

DIAMOND PEAK SKI RESORT: Diamond Peak is perched lakeside just above Incline Village on the north shore of Lake Tahoe and offers breathtaking views of the lake from nearly every corner of the resort. An award-winning ski school, the Burton Learn to Ride Center, and generous mix of greens, blues, and blacks make this a great family destination for all levels of skiers and boarders. The nearest hotel resort is the Hyatt Lake Tahoe, which has its own ski retail and rental shop. Oh, it also has a casino, a 30,000 square-foot spa (that’s big!), and outdoor fire pits. Yes, you can take your hot toddy poolside (heated, with indoor swim-out access!) or lakeside and cozy up around a roaring fire pit and relive your best lines of the day.

MT. ROSE-SKI TAHOE: Always trust the locals! Mt. Rose is the locals’ favorite with 1,200 acres of terrain only 25 minutes from Reno. Many Reno hotels offer ski shuttles to Mt. Rose with their ski-and-stay packages. With the highest base elevation at the lake, Mt. Rose towers high above Incline Village on the north shore and offers sweeping views of both Lake Diamond Peak

RIDE THE RAILS OF THE SILVER STATE – SIX DAYS, 838 MILES/1,348 KM Day 1 RENO TO CARSON CITY: Truly die-hard rail fans can arrive by Amtrak in the heart of downtown Reno. From here you’ll drive to Carson City and check into a hotel.

Day 2 CARSON CITY TO VIRGINIA CITY: Buy your tickets early for the Sisters in History train ride from Carson City to Virginia City, which departs most weekends during the spring and summer. When you arrive in the Old West town of Virginia City, you’ll have the afternoon to shop, take old-timey sepia photos, or simply wet your whistle at one of the many saloons that line the wooden boardwalk. Return to Carson by train. If you don’t have advance tickets for the train, drive up to Virginia City and hop on the V&T shortline, a half-hour excursion tour to Gold Hill and back.

Day 3

California and Oregon trails. Get your culture on at the Western Folklife Center and the Northeastern Nevada Museum, then lighten your wallet a bit at Capriola’s Saddle Shop (yes, there’s more than saddles there).

Day 5 ELKO TO ELY: Drive to Ely, approximately 3 hours south of Elko. Here you’ll want to spend the afternoon at the East Ely Depot Museum and ride the Nevada Northern Railway, aka the “Ghost Train.” The truly adventurous even can sleep at the rail yard in a converted caboose. The Nevada Northern Railway has been repeatedly featured on the TV show “American Restoration” for work done on equipment in its working restoration shop. Continue to Boulder City, approximately four hours south of Ely. It’s been a long day, you deserve a soft bed and a good night’s sleep.

Visitors can access the site via a 4WD road out of Dayton, and the payoff is solitude among the stone mill and hotel ruins, which are frequented by wild horses and other wildlife. Nevada is dotted with ghost towns, each settlement telling the story of the miners, railroad workers, explorers and settlers who answered the call to “go west, young man.” You may see the signs of their struggles and triumphs as you, too, go west.

rock hammer.

OPALS: The Virgin Valley deep in the northwestern corner of Nevada is not easy to get to, but the payoff is big. Sagecovered valleys, jagged rock cliffs, and natural hot springs await the rugged adventurer. Commercial opal mines welcome visitors to mine their tailings – for a fee – to dig out luminous opals and the rare black opal, found in only two locations in the world (the other is in Australia). Amateur rockhounds, intrepid travelers, and memory-making families can be found in the mine quarries poring over rock piles in search for the precious gemstones. The mines that allow digging are Royal Peacock, Bonanza, and Rainbow Ridge. The digging season typically starts in May, and if you go, be prepared for primitive camping and limited services. This trip has all the makings of a true adventure: gravel roads, spotty cell service, and few people.

TURQUOISE: Nevada is the second-largest producer of Turquoise in the United States, and you can find it for yourself at the Royston Turquoise Mine near Tonopah. Digging sign-ups are at Otteson’s Royston Turquoise Mine, conveniently located in the Mizpah Hotel. Group tours are driven out to the mine, and then miners are turned loose with the instruction: “You’ll know it when you see it!” When you return to the Mizpah with your loot in hand, you can pay to have the resident jeweler to turn the brilliant blue stones into one-of-a-kind jewelry. This is the definition of unique… you can bet that no one else on the block will have the same ring!

GARNETS: Just a few miles west of Ely is a small recreation area called Garnet Hill, and it’s free to the public, just bring your own hammer. Rockhounds can look for the deep-red gemstone peeking through weather-worn rocks, or break open rocks to look for the gems inside. Because Garnet Hill is so close to Ely, it’s a fun addition to Ely’s other attractions such as riding the Nevada Northern Railway, visiting the East Ely Depot Museum, viewing the cultural homes in Renaissance Village, or taking a day trip to Great Basin National Park. And after chasing your fortune (in

LAS VEGAS TO HOOVER DAM The Silver State draws bikers with its wide-open roads, beautiful scenery and moderate weather. So much so, Nevada Magazine produces an annual Nevada Rides Motorcycle Guide for those who prefer to travel on two wheels instead of four. Be sure to check for the 2015 guide this spring. But until then, here are a few favorite Nevada Rides:

NEVADA SCENIC BYWAYS So the closest point from A to B is a straight line. Sure, direct routes are fine if you have places to go, but the roads less traveled in Nevada are the ones that lead to adventure, discovery and rich experience. Nevada has a clutch of state scenic byways, from verdant Lamoille Canyon in the north to the sandstone sights of Red Rock in the south. Three of the Silver State’s byways — Eastshore Drive in north Lake Tahoe, the Las Vegas Strip at night and Pyramid Lake in northern Nevada — are national scenic byways. Many of the scenic byways listed in the following pages are near state parks or sections of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, areas that are fun to explore by hiking trails or a trip to a visitor center, so allow time to soak it all in. Most of Nevada’s scenic byways are near population centers, so on your next trip to Reno, Las Vegas, Elko or Ely, consider a day trip on Nevada’s scenic byways.

Pyramid Lake lies in the Great Basin desert about 45 miles northeast of Reno. At 125,000 acres, it’s one of the largest natural lakes in Nevada and is the focus of three national scenic byways that offer stark desert landscapes, wildlife viewing and interesting geometric formations. The lake is

NIXON Continue south on Nevada state Route 445 and take Nevada state Route 446 to continue circling the lake. Look for American white pelicans — Anaho Island within the lake is a national wildlife refuge, supporting breeding colonies of pelicans and other birds. There is a wildlife viewing area at Popcorn Rock towards the south end of Pyramid Lake along Nevada state Route 446. Spring is a good time to visit, when the fish-eating pelicans are particularly active, drawn to the spring spawning runs of the Lahontan cutthroat trout and the cui-ui fish. In Nixon (on Nevada state Route 447), you’ll find the Pyramid Lake Museum and Visitors Center.

Start your trip on the Strip a little south of Russell Road, so you can view the iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign.

The Strip’s ever-changing skyline currently includes New York New York, which has a roller coaster snaking through the resort’s recreation of the

Big Apple; Paris Las Vegas, which sports a 541-foot-tall Eiffel Tower; and the Bellagio, fronted by a lake with water fountains timed to operate in coordination with music and lights. One of the newer attractions is the High Roller, a 550-foot-tall Ferris wheel directly across from Caesars, with its Greek columns and classic statues. Thrill-seekers may want to make a stop at the Stratrosphere, a 1,149-foot tower with amusement rides at the top. The views you take in today are markedly different from what visitors saw in the early 20th century. The first casinos built in the 1940s were smaller than the monoliths that line the famous byway today, but Las Vegas preserves its rich history in a clutch of compelling, interactive museums just off the Strip. Those include the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas inside Spring Preserve cultural institution on Valley View Boulevard; the National Atomic Testing Museum on Flamingo Road; and the Mob Museum on Stewart Avenue.

EXTEND YOUR TRIP: The intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue is the north end of the official national scenic byway, but you can continue north on the Strip for another 2.9 miles — this is the state of Nevada’s North Las Vegas Strip Scenic Byway. Check out the Neon Museum, which chronicles the history of Las Vegas through its neon signs; the Fremont Street Experience, a five-block entertainment district in historical downtown Las Vegas; and Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort State Park.
