Explore Carson City, Nevada

Nestled in the northwestern part of the state, just a short jaunt from both Lake Tahoe and Reno, is Carson City, Nevada’s proud state capital. The city, built on the cornerstones of mining, logging and the mighty Virginia & Truckee Railroad, was named for frontiersman Christopher “Kit” Carson, who scouted the area for John C. Fremont in the mid 1840s.
