Get ready for an epic blast from Nevada’s past! You’ll be whisked from Sonoma County to the first stop on your adventure: lunch at the historic Stone House Café in Reno. From there, you’ll journey to nearby Virginia City for a luxurious night’s stay at the Cobb Mansion, a charming bed and breakfast built in 1876. After a full gourmet breakfast, explore the old west charm of historic Virginia City.
For lunch, enjoy an interactive and educational tasting at Virginia City Brewery and Pub House, then head to Tonopah, Nevada, to be met by Cline Family Cellars proprietors Fred and Nancy Cline. They will be your hosts at a scrumptious three-course meal at their award-winning restaurant, including wine from Cline Family Cellars and Jacuzzi Family Vineyards. Your second night will be spent in luxury at the most haunted hotel in America, The Mizpah Hotel.
On day three, get ready for some off-road adventure! You’ll spend a full day with adventure company Zero1 in off-road buggies exploring the beauty of the high desert. There will be no roadside markers or tourist attractions on this private trip. Instead, you’ll experience unspoiled nature at its most stunning, and points of interest that are not found on any map. Return to The Mizpah Hotel to relax and refresh before your final celebratory dinner at Tonopah Brewing Company.
Day four is off to a leisurely start with breakfast at The Pittman Café. You’ve got the day ahead of you to explore the historic town of Tonopah and the surrounding area. Activities include a tour of the Mining Park to learn about the rich mining history of the area, a visit to the town of Belmont, an off the grid ghost town with a famous deserted court house, a trip to the Crescent Dunes, dousing at the old Tonopah cemetery and a haunted tour of The Mizpah Hotel. For dinner enjoy craft beers and southern-style barbeque, all made on-site at Tonopah Brewing Co.
The following day, make your way back to Sonoma County with a delicious lunch at Old Granite St. East, a Reno staple.
Date to be mutually agreed upon, blackout dates include holidays. Expires December 31, 2020.
