Out of stock



TOUR: Historical Virginia City Tour – Lunch on your own
DATE: Sunday, October 29, 2017
DURATION: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm (6-hours)

Guests will be transported from the Silver Legacy in Reno to beautiful Virginia City. A Convention Activities guide will narrate and point out interesting sights along the way.

Established in 1859, Virginia City became the richest mining town in the world. San Francisco was built from the mines of the Comstock and the Civil War was partially financed from the gold and silvers discovered beneath the city. Today’s Virginia City is remarkably the same as it was during its heyday with wooden sidewalks, restored mansions, “Old West” saloons, the Piper Opera House and mine tours. Mark Twain began his illustrious writing career at Virginia City’s own “Territorial Enterprise.” AMSAT guests can visit his, as well as numerous other museums, shops, mansions and churches in this richly historic town during their free time.

A Trolley Ride ticket will be given to each guest to use during their free time. There will be plenty of time for your guests to have a quick lunch at any of the local Virginia City restaurants, or they may want to grab quick snacks at Grandma’s Fudge, the Famous Mustang Ranch (the Restaurant, not the Brothel) or Old Red’s. Guests will be dropped at the Delta Parking Lot to enjoy free time for shopping, sightseeing or just people-watching before re-boarding the bus for the return trip to Reno.

If you would like there is a SPECIAL train ride on Sunday, A Day Out With Thomas. Guests would be on their own for tickets, but bus transportation can be supplied down to the train station if you would like to take a peek at the great trains! This fall, fans big and small of the popular “Thomas & Friends” television show can experience a Day Out With Thomas™ at the Virginia & Truckee Railroad in historic Virginia City, Nevada. A Day Out With Thomas™ gives children and their families a chance to take a 25-minute train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine™ and to meet Sir Topham Hatt™. Explore the Imagination Station Caboose, create colorful memories in the Coloring Caboose, dine at the P. B. & J. Pullman car and have fun with plenty of other Thomas-themed activities including motor car rides and putt putt golf at Sudor Island. Children can collect a Thomas tattoo, an engineer license and have their passport stamped. There is time to listen to expert storytelling and watch the latest Thomas videos in the V & T’s 1870 waiting room.
