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.
The Genoa Bar is quite the hot spot in these parts.
They claim to have never dusted the bar and I believe them. It is an amazing little building packed to the brim with “stuff”, some really old and some not so much.
a peek inside the Genoa Bar..
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!
I enjoyed my stint as an old west showgirl.
Meanwhile, Derek got locked up!
Inside the souvenir shop, I tried on a few hats & drooled over children’s western costumes.
I had to try on this kid’s cowboy hat.
I couldn’t resist..and I think I love it.
Why is this not in an adult size?!
Kids get all the cool stuff…….
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!
