Historic Genoa, Nevada is nestled right here in the Carson Valley. The oldest town in Nevada, and just 25 minutes east of beautiful Lake Tahoe, and less than one hour south of Reno. It now is a small, quiet community with several historic bed and breakfasts, unique businesses, a few restaurants, and a small shopping area. It is home to Mormon Station State Historic Park and Genoa’s oldest thirst parlor, The Genoa Bar! Genoa is also home to several of the area’s special events including the Genoa Candy Dance in the fall and the Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival in the spring.
It is not unusual to spot mule deer as they cross local roads to graze on vegetation or fields along the Carson River Valley to the east of Genoa. Visit Genoa and all it has to offer. Genoa’s natural beauty, local wildlife, and historic charm still beckon travelers today.
