Fallon may be home to less than 10,000 people, but it has enough adrenaline-filled activities to entertain a city ten times its size. Oh, and it has a charming downtown lined with brick buildings too.
A jet charter airport in Fallon takes visitors to a town that will get their hearts racing with multiple raceways. Check out Rattlesnake Raceway to see Northern Nevada’s Motor Contest Association dirt track that is ready to welcome riders of all skill levels. Or check out Northern Nevada’s only quarter-mile NHRA-approved track at Top Gun Raceway. Give driving a try on Fridays at Test and Tunes, where drivers can try out vehicles and time themselves on the strip.
Enjoy a slower (and quieter!) pace as you walk down Maine Street. The tree-lined streets are home to historic brick buildings, one-of-a-kind shops and culinary treats. A focus on local agriculture is demonstrated at the Fallon Food Hub where local farm-fresh vegetables are available as part of an initiative to encourage shopping local, supporting local farmers, and eating seasonally.
Though the lights and excitement of Reno are only 60 miles away, Fallon still has a natural desert landscape. “The Oasis of Nevada” is a short drive to the Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge, an 80,000-acre destination for 250,000 migrating waterfowl.
Venture east to legendary Sand Mountain where off-road enthusiasts will have many tales to tell about the 600-foot-tall sand dune that is more than two miles long.
