Ever wondered what Lovelock, Nevada, is like? This little town might seem like a busy place but approach the locals and you’ll see that they’re a friendly lot. The town was founded in 1849 by George Lovelock, an agriculturist who helmed the development of minerals and agriculture here. Today, Lovelock is famous for Lovers Lock Plaza and the Humboldt River. Similar to what you can see in Paris, couples come here to adorn chains with locks in the plaza and then dump the keys in the river. This symbolic gesture of love is especially practiced on Valentine’s Day, so much so that selling locks has made for a pretty good business in town.
Other fantastic activities here include the Balloon Lovers Aloft, in February, and, of course, the Rye Patch State Recreation Area. The recreation area is the best place to fish, swim and have a lazy picnic evening. If you want to learn more about its history, drop by the Marzen House and Lovelock Depot. The former speaks of the mining history of the town, while the depot is listed under the National Registry of Historic Places, and worth your time.
