“Jewel of a city”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We took an unexpected detour on our car trip after I saw Virginia City on the map. I thought, wow, I want to go there, remembering the Westerns of the '60s such as Bonanza and The Virginian.
What a great place and so authentic. Wooden boardwalks and great little stores and unusual neat things. Good workmanship. We were in a hurry and didn't spend as much time as I would have liked.
One needs about 3 hours to stroll leisurely and then have a bite to eat somewhere. So maybe 4 hours.
Great place I'd recommend to visit.

“Virginia City, a ghost town full of life.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This amazing place was such a surprise find on our road trip. Great old time feel to the place is still there. The antique shops were brilliant and we made many purchases. The coffee shop had the best coffee of our entire trip in the US. All the shop keepers were extremely friendly and we really had a great time exploring. Would recommend anyone travelling to reno or Carson city to make the short journey to see this special town.

“Want to shop in Virginia City? No better place than the Virginia City Mall”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

The mall is located at 54 North C Street. There are 2 different stores: Wright Stuff Antiques and VC's Treasure Island. Both are huge and filled to the brim with rare and fabulous finds. I spent hours in each store. The mall is a "must see" when you are visiting Virginia City. Also, in the back of "Junk Alley", there is a wonderful photo op of a old time jail. Take photos of your loved ones behind bars. We had so much fun there!
