Carson Valley, the land of legends and our neighbors to the south. Carson Valley is a must-see area. Oddly enough, the Carson’s aren’t related, as Carson City sits in Eagle Valley and Carson Valley is comprised of 4 towns, Minden, Gardnerville, Genoa and Topaz Lake. All with their own attractions and charm. Carson Valley is home to some of the most breath-taking views of the Sierra Nevada’s this side of Tahoe. With signature annual events like Eagles & Agriculture tours, Genoa Western Heritage Days, the Candy Dance, and the Aviation Round Up Show, Carson Valley has a taste for all palates.

Historically, the roots run deep in Carson Valley, especially in the town of Genoa, the oldest settlement in Nevada. Genoa is exceptionally quaint, with stunning views, amazing trails, and historical attractions. It’s more well know for being home to the “oldest thirst-parlor” in Nevada, the Genoa Bar, continually operating since 1853. With cinematic history, plenty of past celebrity visitors, and a story behind almost every piece on the wall, it’s a must-drink place we highly suggest.

Don’t miss out on the stunning new Bently Heritage world-class distillery, either. It’s a must see to believe establishment.
