Bordered by the Sierra Nevada and the Pine Nut Mountains, Carson Valley attracted some of Nevada's earliest settlers, and with its broad, picturesque scenery, it's easy to see why. In fact, Nevada's first permanent and oldest settlement was in Genoa, a small town that continues to celebrate its history with charming bed and breakfasts, historical museums and attractions and, of course, Nevada's oldest bar.

Carson Valley is northern Nevada's most scenic valley with wide open space that offers an abundance of authentic adventure.  Experience hiking trails, world class soaring, golfing, horseback riding, expansive ranches, parks, shops and hotels. A journey through the valley stretches from Genoa in the northwest through the towns of Gardnerville and Minden, quaint small towns with big history,ending with a refreshing reward of Topaz Lake, known for great fishing, boating, water-skiing, and wake-boarding.

Outdoor enthusiasts love Carson Valley for its expansive opportunities for fresh-air fun. With natural beauty, a laid back friendly atmosphere, historic exploration, authentic outdoor recreation, and Nevada style entertainment year-round, Carson Valley will have you coming back for more.
