We stumbled upon the Governor's Mansion while driving through downtown. Was surprised that it is located in residential neighborhood. I expected a much larger residence, in a more secure, private area.

We came across the Governor's Mansion while doing a drive around the historic district. We knew the interior was closed to the public and so we just admired it from the car. My wife loved the old mansion across the street also.

The stories and history is only part of the experience; to see and feel the personal side of the current governor makes this visit very special. I lived in the area for over 20 years and this was the first time I had been inside the house it's self. If you have the opportunity, take the tour.

I was able to park on the street next to the mansion. I captured a few photographs while standing right in front of the building. Everything was really laid back. Security personnel smiled and waived to me. My only access was a view of the exterior of the building, hence the three star rating.

no tours except on Nevada Day, so it is outside only, but that is still nice, as it is a pretty and historic building in a nice neighborhood, and very easy to get to

Perhaps it's Sunday, thus I couldn't find anyone around the building. Not even security. I was only managed to snap some photos outside, nonetheless, the building is a piece of art itself.

Even though you have to wait in line, The governor is taking photos with your kids and giving them candy. The Mansion is decked out with lights all over and decorations. They have performers. All the houses around the Mansion are decorated with lots of lights and fun stuff.

When you come to the Capital City, Stop and drive by the Govenor's MAnsion. Holidays are best as they decorate it so lovely. A must see. Located on Mountain Street and Robinson.
