Virginia City Orientation:

Virginia City sits over the Comstock Lode in Northwestern Nevada. Silver and gold were first discovered in the region in 1859, and the city became a bustling boom town with many of its early settlers becoming instant millionares. Today, Virginia City is a historical landmark preserving many of its original structures and its old west roots. C Street, which is the main drag through town, is lined with saloons, museums, souvenir shops that are popular with tourists. Old churches, government buildings, and cultural sites from the Bonanza era are also preserved throughout the town.

From Reno, head south on highway US-395 towards Carson City, then exit onto NV-341 (Geiger Grade Rd) into town.
