I am staying in a cute little Air BNB in Carson city for a few nights on my way to the Reno airport to fly out to San Miguel de Allende , Mexico which is where my next house sit is . It will be for 2 months and taking care of 2 dogs. I am excited. Have never been to SMA although have been to other parts of Mexico many times.
So, just wanted to post about Carson city. Another one of those towns that was not that far from my hometown of Truckee, California.
I have come to Carson city before for a day here and there but have to say I really enjoyed my 3 night stay. It is winter so kind of quite however I do know there are a lot of events and music going on here in the summer months.
Carson city is the capitol of Nevada. Here is a little something from the Carson city visitor site.
“Carson City, Nevada boasts an array of outdoor adventures, fine restaurants, challenging golf courses, historical attractions, museums, gaming opportunities and a plethora of events and entertainment. Visitors will find plenty of exciting activities and experiences to choose from. The heart of the action–Carson City is nestled just minutes from world famous Lake Tahoe, electrifying Reno, historic Virginia City and the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range.”
I stayed in the nicest little AirBNB for a super reasonable price and just around the corner from the downtown. Very comfy little place. one of my favorite things about Carson city, besides the mountainous views, is the Carson Hot springs. Wow ! I love this place. You can soak outside in a large pool and 2 jacuzzi tubs or you can get a private room. The think I like about the rooms is that you get super hot water !! The temps in the rooms range from 102 to 109. I chose 107 for the last two nights. I have been fighting off a cold or flu bug so wanted to sweat it out of me. You can also wander outside to use the Hammer ( a very strong fast moving jet of hot water that comes out of a pipe above the pool and pounds your achy muscles). All this for only $15 for a room for 2 hours (senior price ! Yup, I am a senior !) or $20 for younger folks. If you only want to use the outside it is $10 or $15. The place was packed on the weekend. They have a fire pit outside and families come and bring all kinds of food and hang out all day. But, today , Monday was very quite.
Carson is a cute little town with some nice restaurants , breweries, wine shops, antique stores, coffee shops, funky bars and even a couple casinos. Lake Tahoe is not far away with hiking trails all around . A bit laid back this time of year. But, fun stuff happening here in summer. Free outdoor music once a week, Bluegrass festival, Mountain man event, and much more.
I plan to spend a couple nights again on my way back from Mexico in the same AirBNB cause it was such a bargain !!! And I love the Hot springs.
Meanwhile , Adios and see you in Mexico !!

See you in Mexico!
Carson City sounds fun. I’d probably like it a little more quiet than it sounds like it is in summer. Have fun in Mexico…will look forward to seeing your posts and photos from there!
This beautiful alley shot reminds me of the “streets” in Peru!
That photo is San Miguel de Allende in Mexico which is where I am now. New post coming.
