The view of Virginia City from Boot Hill is fantastic. The graves site markers are recreations but reportedly in the correct locations. Worth visiting if in Virginia City as it is a very short distance.

A beautiful view a Virginia City and it's just a quick drive from town. A sad story of the men that are buried there, but a must if you are in town. This historic stop is marked clearly with sign's, and road is well maintained....More

After wandering up the hill we found Boot Hill, complete with five pairs of boots. I guess I'm comparing it to the one in Tombstone, AZ which is very interesting. This one mainly has a nice view of the town and surrounding area.

Spent time checking out the area and feeling the old west! Enjoyed a few hours in shops and town. Visited in late September so not everything open, but enjoyed the flavor of the town. Shop owners were very friendly.

A totally western history experience, along with the various sights, and museums in both Virginia City and Nevada City. Go on your own or take in the tour, both are great!

Very quick stop that you can drive up to. Only took 15 minutes to walk around learn some history and take a few pictures. Look out for tour bus. Not a great place to park at when a tour bus is trying to drive around.
