Bright lights and neon are indicative of all the Carson City nightlife and events to be found here. Seen from the air at night, Carson City has the appearance of a lopsided X with long legs stretching from the center toward the south and the east. From ground level, the epicenter of the action is at the downtown area with some of the most historic pubs and bars in the state vying for your attention. This is also where you'll find wine walks and ghost walks, if you like a bit of activity with your nightlife. Moving east from this centralized area, just follow the neon and you'll find nightclubs, lounges, casinos, local watering holes and cowboy clubs where you can indulge in a little bit of boot-scootin' boogie. Or maybe you want to head south of the capitol building toward Tahoe and the Carson Valley. This road is a little more heavily traveled, so be sure to stake your claim, and your barstool, early so you don't miss out on any of the fun. No matter what part of town you find yourself in, there's likely to be some live entertainment taking place, particularly if you' re looking at Carson City nightlife and events on the weekend.
