Walking Tours

Activities in Elko, NV

Step outside during your next stay at the Ramada Elko Hotel and Casino to enjoy our city’s parks, historic places and Great Basin scenery for yourself. When looking for things to do in Elko, Nevada, consider a self-guided tour of our historical town. Our location in the heart of downtown puts you near Idaho, Court and Juniper streets—you can stay and explore this area, or head northwest up to Main Street and Johnny Appleseed parks. (From the hotel, head away from our main entrance on 3rd or 4th street, then turn right on Idaho.)

Other historical sites can be found even closer to our doors: for example, just take a right and a few blocks later you’ll be at Elko Railroad Park, home to a Western Pacific GP 9 and caboose—a trace of the remarkable history that has taken place in Elko. Several sites certified by National Register of Historic Places are also close by: the county courthouse and Ruby Valley Pony Express Station are both on Idaho Street—they can make great destinations or places to see on a walk through Elko.

Finally, guests looking for an extended walking or jogging route should consider a trip to Mountain View Park, the largest in town. The 2 mile distance is perfect for a picnic lunch, and the route is simple: after heading right from the hotel’s main entrance, just follow 5th street across and out of town and it will be on your left. You can also make a stop at 5th Street Park on the way there or back.
