Get your culture on with diverse dining and area museums:
Carson City is home to the Nevada State Museum, the state Capitol Building, and the Stewart Indian School Museum (and that’s just a few of the many museums and galleries around here). There’s more history in this area than you can swing a nine iron at, including spectacular exhibits on cultural heritage, geology and Nevada’s rugged history.
Sink your teeth into regional specialties at JT Basque Restaurant in Gardnerville, or something exotic at The Basil Thai Restaurant. We think diversity tastes pretty darn good! A stop by historic Genoa to visit the state’s oldest thirst parlor and nearby Tahoe Ridge Winery for a taste of local wines is also worth the trip.
Tame the Wild West, or explore it at your own pace with unique outdoor adventures:
· White Water Rafting and exploration paddling on the Carson River with Great Basin Sports.
· Rent bikes from Big Daddy’s in Gardnerville and cruise along river paths, ranches and charming downtown districts.
