This old city has lots of history, museums, casinos, cafes, etc. The capitol city only has about 55,000 residents, so there's not a lot to do if you're not a gambler or historian. The Mansion was not open to visitors. The town has a theater/casino complex and a bowling alley. It's a cheaper place to stay than on Lake Tahoe... More

Going by the governor's mansion on a holiday is great because of all the decorations they put up. Sometimes they hold a breakfast in the building next to it! At Halloween you can meet the governor!

The Nevada governor's mansion is not open for tours, but anyone can drive by. We parked and walked the block and took a few photos of the lovely house. Around the corner, we were surprised to see a teenage party set up in the back yard. A chat with two adults at the sign-in table revealed that the home is... More

This was a very beautiful building... Very nice neighborhood! I could see us moving here when we retire. I wish I was the Governor.

We drove by it, was not much to see. However, I am one for not wasting the taxpayers money on a house. The area is residential, just a 2-minute run from the former mint museum.

The Governor's Mansion is great. It is classic architecture and they always do a great job of decorating during different holiday seasons. It is in the older west part of town. A must drive by.

It's a joy to drive or walk by and enjoy the tasteful decorations they put up for each holiday season. I apologize to the Governor's family here for my dog marking the property, we walked there so much he 'marked' the trees as his home.

I'll have to applaud the governor of Nevada for being so approachable and living in a more or less normal house. Yes, its mansion looking like in a southern way all white with columns. He is home for Halloween passing out candy and there is not an army of security to guard the place like California or other states. There... More

No public tours are available for the mansion, but you can drive by and gawk as much as you like. It's on a quiet little side street in a residential neighborhood. I was surprised by how large and ornate it was, compared to the capitol building we had just seen.
