Forbes: America’s Prettiest Neighborhoods

2 of 12

Virginia City Historic District, Virginia City, Nevada

Made up of the former mining villages of Virginia City, Gold Hill, Dayton and Silver City, Virginia City is a step back into the Old West, with Victorian-era homes, businesses, and even a few Saloons. The entire district studiously maintains its connection to the past, with a gold rush feel that permeates almost every corner of the area, and is on the National Register of Historic Places – which helps preserve that Old West charm. It remains a big tourist draw, even though some of the area in danger of sliding down into old mining tunnels that have been abandoned.
