We have used Reno, NV for a little RR on the National Parks trip twice now. Both times staying at the Victorian Inn in Sparks and dining at the Atlantis oyster & sushi bar. So a side trip to Carson City was in order. The docent was extremely helpful with information on Carson City, Lake Tahoe and Virginia City. We... More

The volunteer who helped us was excellent! This is where we learned about the walking tour and I even got a cup of green tea to take with me on my walk. They have plenty of information about their town and everyone should stop here while in Carson City.

When we first walked in I wasn't sure if we were in the right place. The office looked more like a retail store than a visitors center. We were met by one of the staff and he gave us a wealth of information to where to go and what to do. We found the biggest problem was that there is... More

I stopped in to get some information about the historic neighborhood in Carson City. The super friendly and knowledgeable lady working here took the time to answer all of my questions, gave me plenty of pamphlets and suggested several sights in/around the area. One of the items she gave me was a self-guided walking tour map of the historic residential... More

We love Carson City and visit often. There is a lot of history there. I found the staff to be helpful and friendly. You can spend the entire day walking/driving around from place to place. Love all of the state buildings.

The person I spoke with could not answer some basic questions about the area. It was almost like they wanted me to take my family to Lake Tahoe or Virginia City instead of seeing Carson City.
