The road less traveled? It runs straight through Elko. No, we’re not talking about the ever-popular Interstate 80. We’re talking about a mindset. It’s a mindset that takes you out of the ordinary and says, “Let’s find something really memorable to do today. Something you won’t find anywhere else.”
From taking a chopper to a remote stretch of wintry wilderness for a day of heli-skiing to being regaled with tales of the frontier at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, Elko is Ground Zero for unusual things to do, and we think that’s just fine and dandy.
Sure, we have all the traditional elements you’d expect in a high desert oasis — from Old West history to saloons and dusty trails — but we also like to shine the spotlight on the unusual, because it’s the unexpected that creates life-long memories. If rockhounding, ghost town exploration and giant, painted boot spotting are high on your list of priorities, Elko, Nevada is your kind of place.
