Nevada city is just down the road from Virginia city. We were going to ride the train from Virginia City but it was on a weekend and with the social distancing they had to space people on the train so the last train was the only one available. So we just drove down to Nevada city and got to enjoy it longer. It is well preserved and has people dressed in the time and demonstrating different activities and explaining more of the history and how life was during the time. It was a place where you could take as much or as little time as you wanted. A enjoyable afternoon for us. Be sure to check out Virginia City as well.
