Attractions to enjoy while staying at your tournament vacation in Reno, Nevada. In just a 35-minute drive from Reno, you can step back to the 19th-century mining boom, which during that time turned Virginia City into the most important settlement between Denver and San Francisco. It also turned grubby prospectors into instant millionaires. At the peak of its glory, Virginia City was a boisterous town. Some say the spirits of these Comstock characters still inhabit the places they built. Come for the history, stroll along the rickety wooden sidewalks, take a mine tour, visit Piper’s Opera House (built in 1885) and drink a cold beer inside the Bucket of Blood Saloon (built in 1876). Visitors also drive up for unforgettably wacky events such as the International Camel Races, Outhouse Races and Mountain Oyster Festival.
