Virginia City Rest Stop
Depending which way you are travelings along State Highway (SR) 341/342, this little piece of respite is nice because you can overlook the western part of the town and has picnic tables and a new restroom facility. Plus, there are some very interesting history plaques located along the rest stop and a very helpful map of the city.
Next to the restroom facility is a gas station.

You'll need your own car!
