Nevada's capital offers more than you might think. Carson City's rustic beginnings as a frontier town shine bright with history, museums, events and more. The Kit Carson Trail winds through one of the largest historic residential districts in the west, passing turn-of-the-century mansions, courthouses, a depot...even a brewery. The State Capitol grounds are open to the public year-round and provide a glimpse into the birth of Nevada. Divine Nine Golf. Several world class golf courses provide options beyond compare. Just a stones throw from Lake Tahoe, Carson City is central for skiing and water sports too.
