Carson Valley: Rugged. Relaxed. Reachable.

Carson Valley: Rugged. Relaxed. Reachable. Once you see Carson Valley, it's easy to remember what Nevada was like long ago when people came seeking its earthly riches: rugged, friendly, unspoiled. It's a place where the night sky is still lit up with stars instead of neon, where seeing the scenery is more important than making "the scene". Here itineraries are shaped by nature, not nagging schedules.
