One of the most nostalgic experiences in Nevada can be found at the McGill Drugstore Museum in a small town 12 miles north of Ely. Stepping through the door, visitors are greeted by an authentic small town drugstore that has been completely frozen in time. The store’s shelves are lined with faded products dating back to the 1950s, from the once-popular Dippity-do styling gel to the Ipana toothpaste. In its heyday, the McGill Drugstore sold its customers not only manufactured drugs, but also a variety of home remedies and prescriptions that were mixed right in the store.
The Jailhouse Casino - Motel in Ely offers reasonable accommodations and a friendly casino. This pet-friendly motel also houses two restaurants. The Garden Coffee Shop offers daily specials while the Cell Block Steak House offers a unique dining experience where guest dine in the privacy of their own jail cell.
Train aficianados can now experience an overnight stay in an authentic, 19th-century caboose. The Northern Nevada dates back to the early 1900s, when the railway was built to help haul copper from area mines.
Today, the Nevada Northern offers a number of train rides on historic engines, including the new Caboose Overnight ride. Up to three people can stay in the caboose overnight for $125, or $185 to add a train ride. Guests that stay in the caboose have access to the restrooms, showers and kitchen that are in the nearby bunkhouse.
Nevada has long been a haven for mountain bikers, and with routes like those found in the Egan Crest Trail System, it's easy to see why.
