Traveling the "Loneliest Highway" has its rewards.

main homepage text

Austin, Nevada, is more than just another stop along Highway 50, the Loneliest Road in America. This is a place to enjoy rugged and scenic trails, or soak in the warm, soothing waters of Spencer Hot Springs. Born an old silver mining town, Austin was home to some of Nevada’s more colorful prospectors and silver miners. Today, with the expansive Toiyabe Mountain Range as its backyard, it features some of the best mountain biking, hiking and exploring in the state. Although rich in history, this town is not a “ghost town.” Austin’s historic Main Street has motels, bed and breakfasts, RV parks, restaurants, gas stations and unique shops to visit. There are special events throughout the year, so check our calendar often as something new is always happening. Every season is special in Austin Nevada! Break away from the ordinary and treat yourself to the treasures of Austin Nevada.
