Carson Valley Nevada | Carson City and Lake Tahoe

Where History Lives and Adventure Beckons

Las Vegas may be Nevada’s largest and most well-known city, but the roots of the state of Nevada as we know it today were planted in scenic Carson Valley, located just south of the state capital of Carson City and just over the Sierra Nevada from world-famous Lake Tahoe. The spirit of adventure has always been at the heart of Carson Valley. From early mormon pioneers who trekked across the Great Salt Lake Basin to found Mormon Station, the first settlement in Nevada, to famed mountain men and frontiersmen such as Kit Carson (the valley and state capital’s namesake) and John “Snowshoe” Thompson, the rugged beauty of Carson Valley still calls out to present-day adventurers and explorers.

Today, this charming Carson Valley Nevada brims with Nevada history, amazing locally sourced eats, some of Nevada’s best antique shopping, and tons of adrenaline-pumping activities, outdoor action, and sunset soaks—around the valley, at nearby Lake Tahoe, and on Topaz Lake just to the south.
