Virginia City

This town became the richest in the entire US because of the famous Comstock Lode. It was the largest silver deposit ever found up to that time.

Virginia City is well-preserved. Try to find a time to visit during the week; weekends get very crowded.

Virginia City Saloons

Virginia City has a number of historic, Gold Rush-era saloons. Each has its own colorful past, which locals will be glad to share with visitors.
