Virginia City is located in western Nevada at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, just south of Reno & I-80. It was once the richest gold producing area in the United States. Today there are shops & restaurants, most of the buildings still retain there original facades.

We arrived in town about an hour before the stores opened, there was one small coffee shop open so we sat down for a beverage. We had great timing, we were in & out of town before it got really busy.
