The Douglas County seat, Minden, NV, is a charming town of about 3000 people and considered one of the top gliding spots in the world. The city hosts farmer’s markets, art shows and the Show and Shine Car Show during the summer.
Directly adjacent to Minden, Gardnerville is a town of about 5600 residents. It offers a beautiful golf course alongside the Carson River, music in the parks, wine walks and Carson Valley Days, an annual summer event that draws thousands.
