Dayton, Nevada, was initially known as Gold Cañon and was a resting area when snow made travel through the Sierra Nevada’s too grueling. The settlement took off in 1849 following Abner Blackburn’s discovery of gold, the first documented discovery in the state. The town had more than 200 miners working the canyon by 1851, making this the first non-native American settlement in Nevada. Today, homes make up a majority of Dayton, from large ranches to brand new custom homes like Santa Maria Ranch lining the Carson River.

The Clear Creek Plaza is also convenient for residents of Dayton and includes a Walmart Supercenter, Trader Joe’s, Best Buy, Michaels, and a Costco Wholesale down the street.
While Carson City is convenient to Dayton’s residents, Dayton itself still has plenty to offer. A Smith’s shopping center sits on Lincoln Highway and Retail Road.

Two miles away across the Carson River is the River Vista Commercial Center. 1st and 10 Bar and Grill is a well-liked restaurant located within the center. If you’re looking to work off that extra order of fries, head to River Vista Fitness. The club offers group classes, free weights, cardio equipment, personal training, tanning, and a kid’s club.
