Travel Tips for Elko

Elko

by agricola

"cowboys and indians, miners and sheepherders -"

Elko - the city of festivals. About ten years ago, Elko was named 'the Best Small Town in the US': by the time the book was out, Elko was already too large to qualify. I've lived here over 25 years, and I've seen the city grow from about 8000 to over 25000.

It's still small - only now Elko is a small city, rather than a small town.

Elko is home to the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering - the oldest and still the largest such event in the US. It adds interest and activities to midwinter.
Summer's big kickoff event is the annual International Basque Festival, held on the weekend closest to the Fourth of July.

"basin and range"

I'd add 'Gateway to the Ruby Mountains' if I had my way. The Rubies are about twenty miles SE of town, and they are beautiful. Some people call them Nevada's Little Alps, for their glacier carved valleys, horns and cirques. The Rubies are popular with 'wild' skiers (people that like to ski down virgin slopes) and in the summer, rock climbers.

"always something going on"

There's always something happening. Cowboy Poetry, The Silver State Stampede, the County Fair, Oktoberfest, The Basque Festival, the Motorcycle Jamboree, Ruby Mountain Balloon Festival - every month of the year there is something going on.
Add the local college's art and music events, the award winning museum and the folklife center, the little theatre productions, a great range of sporting events and activities for kids and teens, and, of course, hunting (and fishing) season, and it's hard to be bored (unless you work at it, of course).
