The State Capital, Carson City dates back to the 1860s when it thrived due to the Comstock Silver Lode in nearby Virginia City. Today the local economy is based on industrial, commercial, tourist, casino and State Government employment.

With its convenience to Reno (25mins) and San Francisco (4hrs.) it provides an attractive alternative to "Big City" living. The population is just over 50,000 and Carson City has all the amenities and shopping of a larger center without losing the small town atmosphere. In all, the city covers about 20 sq. miles and has a wide range of terrain from desert hillsides to pine covered Sierra slopes and from tree lined streets to wide, green ranch meadows.

Carson City is home to a wide variety of entertainment and cultural venues, including a number of casinos, the Nevada State Museum, The Children's Museum of Northern Nevada, Nevada State Railroad Museum and the Brewery Arts Center. The BAC supports local artists and entertainers and stages plays and musical performances by nationally recognized musicians and groups.

All kinds of outdoor activities are well represented with many beautiful Golf Courses and Washoe Lake State Park, for water and beach recreation.

Clear Creek: At the south end of town along old Hwy 50 to Lake Tahoe a number of homes are situated 2+ miles from Hwy 395 in a rugged, treed canyon. A golf course has recently been opened and has premium priced lots on the course or in the wooded areas surrounding. Very nice!
