Virginia City Tours

Located at the base of the Sierra Nevada, the small town of Virginia City is the best known of the once-great mining towns. Well-preserved, Virginia City has become a living ghost town – full of character, charm, tours and attractions that continue to breathe new life into the city by way of living storytelling. Steeped in the history of the Gold Rush and the birth of the American West, Virginia City now plays a vital part in rounding out an understanding of this unique section of time in America’s past.
