Virginia City


Take part in shoot outs! Drink in saloons! Ride trains and hunt for gold in mine shafts! Its the wild west in color! Once a vital settlement between Denver and San Francisco, Virginia City influenced the entire country. During its boomtime, Virginia City's mining proceeds amounted to millions of dollars, equaling billions today. Every inch of this picturesque, Victorian-era town, celebrates this colorful history. Stroll our authentic board sidewalks to Old West saloons, shops, museums, and restaurants. Or visit historic churches, 19th century homes, public buildings, and quaint cemeteries. Maybe it's a ride on a stagecoach, horse-drawn carriage, trolley, or the V&T Railroad steam engine train that crosses the high desert landscape dotted with old mines. Take your step back in time in Virginia City!
           

Chukar


The first time hunting chukar is for fun...after that, its revenge! Nevada offers an outdoor family relationship that you simply have to experience to believe. Nevada is the Chukar capital of the world, and no other state can boast as many birds as Nevada. Don't let any experience pass you by, there are many outfitters that will help you experience a once-in-a-lifetime hunt.


Area 51


Area 51 (also known as Dreamland, or Groom Lake) is located in the southern portion of Nevada, 83 miles north-northwest of Las Vegas. The base's current primary purpose is officially undetermined; however, based on historical evidence, it most likely supports development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems. Despite the obscurity of the facility, the base has become well known, in large part because of various conspiracy theories involving it and its frequent portrayal in popular culture.
           



     

Berlin-Ichthyosaur


Nevada’s Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park contains the largest known Shonisaurus popularis ichthyosaur fossils. These extinct marine reptiles, which ranged in size from 2 feet to over 50 feet long, swam in the ocean that covered central Nevada 225 million years ago during the Triassic Period.


This 36-Star Flag...


...Was draped over the balustrade in the presidential box of Ford’s Theatre on Good Friday, April 14, 1865. On that night President Lincoln was there to see the play, "Our American Cousin." John Wilkes Booth, a former actor, assassinated President Lincoln in hopes of creating political chaos.

Laura Keene, starring actress in that night’s performance, was in the booth with Lincoln, and cradled his head in her lap. Doctors laid Lincoln on the floor, and Keene pulled down the large 36-star flag, placing it partially under his head. Lincoln died shortly after.
