There are plenty of welcoming places in Nevada, but Winnemucca tops the rest. Home to a small population with less than 10,000 residents, this small town in Humboldt County is surrounded by desert and towering peaks. Downtown Winnemucca is a joy to explore with its restaurants offering Basque cuisine. There are also numerous local retail and entertainment options for guests to check out. Humboldt River flows nearby, and you can try whitewater rafting or kayaking its rapids. If you’re more into land excursions, rent an ATV and ride the sand dunes located just outside of town. There’s plenty more to say about why Winnemucca is worth a visit, but we’ll leave the rest to you. Visiting the friendliest town in Nevada soon?
