This historic community hosts an early evening Christmas parade in which the floats and marching bands must incorporate lights. It’s a celebration of the holidays with a hometown ambiance.

 
Take a step back in time in Virginia City!  Once a vital settlement between Denver and San Francisco, Virginia City influenced the entire country. During its boom, proceeds from mining amounted to millions of dollars (which would equate to billions today).
 
Every inch of this picturesque, Victorian-era town, celebrates its colorful old-west history. Take a ride on a stagecoach, horse-drawn carriage, trolley, or the V&T Railroad steam engine train that crosses the high desert landscape that is dotted with old mines.  Stroll along the authentic board sidewalks and stop a saloon to wet your whistle.  Visit museums, historic churches, 19th century homes, public buildings, and quaint cemeteries.
