CARSON

             VALLEY

On Nevada’s western border, framed by the Carson Range of the Sierra Nevada and the Pinenut Mountains, the Carson Valley unfolds. Broad and green, nourished by the Carson River and its tributaries, the Valley appeared as an oasis to early western settlers drawn by the California Gold Rush of the 1840’s.

Among those settlers was John Reese, who established the first permanent settlement in Nevada at Genoa in 1851. Today, Genoa appears much as it did in that era. It still resists traffic signals, and visitors to its center will find more than a few examples of nineteenth century architecture within strolling distance. Among those structures, Mormon Station State Park, the Courthouse Museum at Genoa, the Genoa Town Hall and Nevada’s Oldest Thirst Parlor (just call it the “Oldest Bar”).

LAKE

         TAHOE

Lake Tahoe, North America’s largest alpine lake, is in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, located along the border between California and Nevada, west of Carson Valley. This beautiful area was considered a spiritual site by the Washoe Indians before being discovered by American explorers Kit Carson and John Fremont.

Soaring, hot air balloon rides and helicopter tours are all great ways to take in the beauty of the Lake Tahoe area from an aerial perspective. Hiking, cruises, horseback riding and rafting are good ways to take in its beauty up close and personal.

There is more to do than just experience the great outdoors at Lake Tahoe. From world-class golf courses, to museums, to historic sites, to casinos and everything in between, there is something for everyone to enjoy
