Introducing Lovelock

Couples in love who want to leave a piece of their romance in Nevada would be advised to stop by the quiet small town of Lovelock, a 90-minute drive northeast of Reno. Behind the Pershing County Courthouse, inspired by Rome's pantheon, you can symbolically lock your passion on a chain for all eternity in Love Lock Plaza. At the 1874 Marzen House, a small historical museum displays mementos of local sweetheart Edna Purviance, Charlie Chaplin's leading lady. A country-style diner, the Cowpoke Cafe serves from-scratch buffalo burgers, brisket sandwiches and homemade desserts like red velvet cake.
