It sure seems like this blog is more about my travels than “vintage things”, but my outings tend to involve historic places and things, so I hope you’re all still interested!
This weekend I visited Nevada’s oldest town, Genoa. The town was founded in 1851 when explorers set up a trading post that attracted fellow travelers and trappers to visit and eventually settle in the area.
In Nevada’s oldest town is Nevada’s oldest bar…who would have guessed?! It is called the Genoa Bar and is awesome.
We got a few drinks with my boyfriend’s family (who live nearby) and sat in the sun, enjoying the scenery.
On our way home from Nevada to California, Derek & I stumbled across this roadside stop that had a photo area too good to pass up!
Inside the souvenir shop, I tried on a few hats & drooled over children’s western costumes.
Once I was through “horsing around” at the souvenir shop, Derek & I headed on to the next town. That town was Placerville, Ca and it was lovely. Here are a few shots of the downtown area.
I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I enjoyed these adventures!
