Some Highlights along US-50

The Eureka Opera House
The Eureka Opera House is a magnificently restored example of western architecture, and a contemporary showplace for distinguished touring performers.

The Shoe Tree
This cottonwood tree a few miles east of Fallon has been decorated by passersby with shoes, boots, slippers, sandals, rollerblades, even ice skates, skis and snowshoes. But why?

Austin was once the second-largest city in Nevada (after Virginia City) with a spectacular gold and silver mining history. Now there are more people in the cemetery than living residents, but the old city still welcomes visitors the year around.

A popular resort since Carson City's earliest days, The Carson Hot Springs offers a large outdoor pool (98 degrees average in the summer - 102 degrees in the winter.) and 10 private hot baths. Luxuriating in warm water here was a special pleasure in the 19th century, and it's still quite wonderful.
