Carson City, the 6th most populous city in Nevada, sits at the foot of the Sierra Nevada 28 miles south of Reno, surrounded by hills in most directions. Those to the northeast harbor dozens of old mines, and the historic settlement of Virginia City, but most visitors in town head west, along US 50 to the shore of Lake Tahoe, one nearby attraction being Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park. To the north, I-580 from Reno passes the much smaller Washoe Lake, popular for fishing, boating and camping.
Carson City has several golf courses, one beside the Carson River which flows past to the east. The new interstate freeway bypasses the city center; instead the main road is US 395, Carson Street, which is lined by many shops, hotels, restaurants and casinos, stretching for five miles.
