It's nice to sit and be driven around while being shown all the interesting buildings and hearing the stories connected to them. And there is a lot of history in this city which is a National landmark.

About 15 minutes long but worth it if you’d like some back story on the town and mines. The driver was our narrator and was pleasant and knowledgeable. Like I said, a quick tour of a small town - in a closed trolley

This is the best way to get oriented to Virginia City. The ride is about 20 minutes during which time the driver explains everything along the route including old buildings and mines. We were fortunate to have a driver who was a subject matter expert...More

THere is a parking lot right where the trolley picks up. Other free lots are around the Main Street as well - everything looks safe with easy access.
