Carson City, officially the Consolidated Municipality of Carson City, is an independent city and the capital of the US state of Nevada, named after the mountain man Kit Carson. Change things up with these side-trips from Carson City: Grover Hot Springs State Park (in Markleeville), Incline Village (Tahoe Meadows Whole Access Interpretive Trail, Sand Harbor, & more) and Hawthorne Ordnance Museum (in Hawthorne). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Nevada State Railroad Museum, stroll around Washoe Lake State Park, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and see a world frozen in time at Bodie.

For where to stay, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Carson City online road trip planner .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
