Elko, a Northeastern Nevada city in Elko County, is a small desert city that experiences four mild seasons per year and sees thousands of tourists within the summer months alone. Home to the Ruby Mountains and rugged streamlined canyons, Elko boasts a serene, barren beauty and plenty of outdoor recreation.
Elko is a hub for education, offering guests the opportunity to stroll the halls of the California Trail Historic Interpretive Center, the Northeastern Nevada Museum, and the Cowboy Arts and Gear Museum which features an extensive collection of authentic cowboy items, artifacts, and history. Then, they can make their way 30 miles outside of Elko to the Humboldt National Forest where they can go hiking, horseback riding, backpacking, or camping amongst some of the city’s most beautiful landscapes.
Travelers should also visit the Wild Horse Reservoir State Recreation Area for an afternoon of fishing, the Ruby View Golf Course for a few rounds of golf, or the Ruby Crest National Recreation Trail for a unique hiking experience that leads them through glacial valleys and around various lakes and slow moving streams. For a dose of indoor fun, guests can go bowling at Telescope Lanes or check out the world’s largest taxidermied polar bear and try their luck at the Commercial Hotel and Casino.
