On your next trip to Nevada’s capital make sure you consider employing our Carson City car hire services as your main means of transportation through and around the city. Contrary to what many might think, Las Vegas isn’t Nevada’s capital and in rather stark contrast with “Sin City”, Carson City is a rather picturesque place with access to the outdoors and many surrounding communities.
While the city has a local airport, it is a small regional airport with no commercial flights, the closest airport to Carson City is Reno-Tahoe International which is thirty miles away but you can employ our Carson City car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport when you land. The city can also be reached via bus routes and of course personal car.
There are quite a few attractions and sights that the city has to offer its visitors, starting with the Nevada State Capitol Building which is a great example of Neoclassical Italianate style, rather different from most other capitol buildings around the country because it was built between 1869 and 1871. the building still serves the Governor and on the second floor there are a couple of historical exhibits.
The Nevada State Museum is housed in what used to be the Carson City Mint and its exhibits include the world’s largest Columbian Mammoth as well as the silver services from the USS Nevada, which was a Second World War ship that was used as target practice for the Pacific nuclear bomb tests after the war ended.
Railroad enthusiasts absolutely have to visit the Nevada State Railroad Museum. The museum preserves the railroad heritage of the state and features old locomotives and cars. It is interesting to note that many of the exhibits were obtained from Hollywood studios because they were used in many movies and television series.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Carson City so make sure to consider employing our Carson City car hire in order to better explore the city and its surroundings.
