Once home to more than 115 saloons, this historic mining town honors the hard times of our mining forefathers with our annual saloon crawl series. Many of our historic saloons are true to their roots and have maintained their authentic 19th century look and feel, so walking through the doors is like stepping back in time. Visitors today can expect much more than just their favorite cocktail, they’ll get a history lesson and an experience to last a lifetime. Join us on a saloon crawl and experience it for yourself, sampling some of the best and most delicious beverages our town has to offer.
We promote safe driving in Virginia City. Each saloon crawl offers a Designated Driver option with unique benefits only the DD is eligible for, including the chance to win a $50 gas card to cover the trip and then some. See details below.
Be sure to use #CrawlBackInTime to share your saloon crawl experience on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for your chance to win two tickets to another 2017 saloon crawl!
Please drink responsibly and designate a sober driver. Or, plan ahead and book a room at one of our cozy hotels.
