Elko, Nevada: Gold Mining, Western Life, and the Ruby Mountains

Most of the gold mined in Nevada comes from just outside of Elko, the capital of Nevada's gold belt and the self-appointed "Best Small Town in America." One of the most popular tourist activities here is exploring the hundreds of abandoned mining camps in the area.

If you're looking to strike it rich without breaking a sweat, try your luck at the Historic Commercial Casino, which has been in operation since 1869. Elko is also home to the Western Folklife Center, an organization dedicated to preserving the traditions of life in the American West. A 30-minute drive will take you to the Ruby Mountains, where you can set out on hiking trails leading to waterfalls and creeks in a scenic valley.
