Bring your organization, club or group to Virginia City for a fun and unique experience.
Step back in time is more than a motto. They are our words to live by. Our historic destination provides an experience more than 150 years in the making. If you’re planning a group event or outing, Virginia City has what you need to give your guests an unforgettable experience.
In the late 1800s, the Virginia City, Gold Hill and Silver City area became one of the largest communities west of Denver. It was the center of business and enterprise churning out leaders in mining and engineering while influencing the stock exchange with the amount of gold and silver (lead by the millionaire Silver Kings, the prominent miners on the Comstock) coming from the hills.
Today, Virginia City feels and looks the same as it did in the late 1800s, yet is within 40 minutes of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. It’s a place you can look forward to while experiencing the past. And where leisure time here, is the real deal. Productivity is high and distractions are small.
