Caliente, Nevada

Genoa Mormon Station Monument


The best way to see Nevada is to stop in many of the small towns on your way to seeing the state's bigger attractions. There are more than a dozen recommended small towns to see in Nevada. Caliente is just one of them with a lively history linked back to the days of the wild west.

The town initially was named Calientes because of the nearby hot springs. Now, the Union Pacific Train Depot is the main attraction for those visiting this interesting small town, where you can dine and spend the night in one of the building's fifty rooms.

Ely, a lively community, has free events all year long no matter the weather. There are often fishing derbies, sheepherders' galas, runs, food and art festivals, and sculpture competitions. Visitors often rave about the 11-block art walk that weaves through the small town, highlighting paintings and sculptures that tell the tale of the region's history. Located at the base of the Great Basin National Park, from Ely you can explore the Lehman Caves, walk the Island Forest Trail or Bristlecone Pine Trail, the Lexington Arch, Summit Wheeler Peak, and more.

Austin, Lovelock, Panaca, Genoa, Minden, Winnemucca and Gardnerville are also small towns that have things to see any time of the year.
