The Jarbridge Wilderness is here along with The Rubies. On your weekend getaway attend the Elko Ranch Rodeo in April or Silver State Stampede in Elko in July.

Hop a flight to see Lovelock Caves or Stokes Castle or attend RSVP Spring Fun Fair in Carson City in May
or Silver State Stampede in Elko in July. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be
memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far

specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider
checking out some of the great Nevada events like Fifites Fever in Winnemucca in July or Elko Ranch Rodeo in April.

but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have
a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Winnemucca, and then
enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful
Reno resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving
you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another.
The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great
ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers
ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say
"Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in Winnemucca."
