airbnb Virginia-City NV

Welcome to the heart of silver country! The discovery of the Comstock silver lode in the mid 19th century transformed Virginia City into a thriving boomtown. Those days have long since passed but this officially-designated National Historic Landscape district retains much of its frontier charm - with many buildings maintaining their 19th-century character. Museums and local mine tours also help to keep the memory of those boomtown days alive for visitors. Virginia City is also closely associated with and celebrates its links to the famous author Mark Twain. Samuel Clemens first used his illustrious pen name while working on a local newspaper here. So whether you wish to get a flavor of a former frontier town or learn more about a true literary great, these top Airbnb vacation rentals will help you explore this beautiful corner of Nevada to its fullest. Keep reading to find our top 10!
