Discover Carson's hidden gems; information about the opposite sex

While the snow keeps flying and you find yourself looking forward to warmer days, keep in mind Carson has several things to check out. You can always log onto Carson City Convention & Visitors Bureau Web site and see the events that are here in town. If you want to know more interesting facts about Carson City check out the Kit Carson Trail, a walking path through Carson City featuring beautiful landmarks, including 1800s-era Victorian-style homes, museums and churches.

More than 60 landmarks are featured along the Kit Carson Trail. If you have visitors, it's a great way to show how beautiful Carson City looks. I was talking with Candy Duncan and she said if you have someone coming to visit, the CCCVB will send them a guide book so they know what is going on prior to their visit.

When the weather gets better, check out golf with the Divine Nine in the High Sierra. This is an unbeatable package for golfers. Get the clubs and hit Silver Oaks, Sunridge, Genoa Lakes, Empire, Eagle Valley, Dayton Valley and Carson Valley golf courses for a very good price that includes a cart.

Rebuilding a legend and full steam ahead: Reconstruction of the V&T Railroad is on its way. I am a big fan of this great idea and can't wait to ride the V&T all the way down to Carson City. Check out the great things going on right here, right now.

Speaking of local fun throughout Carson join the Wine Walk. Tour downtown with family and friends while checking out the great shops while you sample wine and enjoy snacks at each location. I purchased a great candle the last time out and purchased a great wine basket filled with treats at D'Vine Wine. This is a fun time to just really appreciate how nice it is to mosey through the beautiful downtown area. Check out the new establishment that has joined the walk.

"Defending the Caveman" is the longest running solo play in Broadway history. This hilariously play relates to both men and women and how we really got to feel the way we do about the opposite sex. Don't miss this upcoming event. It will leave you in stitches as the light of understanding illuminates the differences in all of us. A quote from the "Chicago Sun-Times" sums it up best: "An outrageously funny and surprisingly sweet exploration of the gender gap."
