What To Do
It’s almost too easy to say whatever activity you like, you can find it in Carson Valley. But it’s not too far off. History is everywhere, from museums to Nevada’s oldest permanent settlement (and bar) to the family ranches, held for generations. Outdoor recreation abounds; hiking, fishing, road cycling and mountain biking, OHV and motorcycle areas, wildlife viewing and horseback riding. Hot Air ballooning, water skiing and wakeboarding and one of the world’s premier locations for gliding gives you a chance to soar.
Being Nevada, you’ll find the 24 hour gaming you expect, and being just minutes from Lake Tahoe, world class skiing is just minutes away. Championship golf on four Valley courses. Dining choices ranging from traditional Basque to friendly family style to Asian. Antique stores and boutiques feature treasures waiting to be discovered and galleries featuring a surprising array of artists are scattered throughout the Valley. Performances range from free concerts and movies in the parks to nationally known artists and theater productions presented in intimate venues.
Gatherings on special occasions throughout the year have a small town touch. From weekends featuring bald eagles to hot rods and classic cars to antique tractors, you’ll never feel crowded ; and our celebrations of the valley itself, like Carson Valley Days and rodeos have a unmistakably hometown feel.
Consider yourself invited to visit, discover and explore.
