You wouldn’t know it, but the hills in the Tonopah area are riddled with unimaginable amounts of turquoise. With a retail store and tour office located in the alluring Mizpah Hotel in downtown Tonopah, plan ahead for one of the most authentic Nevada experiences you could ask for: turquoise mining. Best yet, Tonopah lies just in between Reno and Las Vegas, which means it's a manageable escape from the big city. Tours begin at the Otteson Turquoise Jewelry shop, where visitors will carpool out to the Royston Turquoise Mine, a short 30 minute drive from the Mizpah.
Built in 1876, the Belmont Courthouse was the seat of Nye County government until 1905.
Just a mile from the Nevada-California border, this beautiful trek can take you to the summit of Boundary Peak. With an elevation of 13,141' it is the highest peak in Nevada.
With a variety of cuisine to choose from, including Italian and Chinese, large portions and excellent service, and reasonable prices who could go wrong with a night out at the Banc Club? There is a metamorphosis of amazing happening on this property: with the bar and casino on one side and the restaurant on the other, you can have it all at the Banc Club.
Whether you're planning a trip to see the historical finds in Central Nevada, or passing through town looking for a quick bite to eat, make the Banc Club a stop along the way. A Tonopah classic!
