Tonopah's BEST WESTERN Hi-Desert Inn offers Jim Butler Days discount May 21-28, 2012

Located midway between Reno and Las Vegas, Tonopah is a great place to stay while enjoying central Nevada's abundant outdoor activities. Come Memorial Day weekend, though, they’ve got lots more to offer at the 42nd Annual Jim Butler Days. The celebration commemorates Jim Butler, the rancher credited with the 1900 silver claim that started one of the biggest mining booms in Nevada history, his wife Belle, and their stubborn mule. 

Tonopah’s BEST WESTERN Hi-Desert Inn is offering a 10-percent discount to anyone who mentions this blog and promo code NVBW,  so be sure to touch base with them before their comfortable, clean rooms fill up. An outdoor pool and complimentary continental breakfast make this the place to stay while celebrating Jim Bulter Days. Call 775-482-3511 or reserve online at
