Throwback Thursday: Virginia City, Nevada
Visiting Virginia City is like stepping back in time to the Gold Rush era. Main Street looks just like it might have been when writer Samuel Clemens lived there, and decided to adopt the pen name Mark Twain. You'll probably see a few costumed characters roaming the streets, like this gentleman who kindly agreed to pose for a photo. There are saloons all over main street, as well as penny candy shops, leather shops, and bars.
