Get in

As a rural junction town, Wells is easiest to get to by car. From points east and west, Interstate 80 runs right to Wells at exits 351 and 352. From the north and south, U.S. Highway 93 runs through Wells and meets I-80 at exit 352.

Get around

6th Street intersects Highway 93 a block north of the freeway and can be used to access nearly every hotel in Wells.



Gambling opportunities are easy to find in any Nevada town, though table games such as blackjack can be harder to come by in some of the smaller ones. At the very least, many truck stops and convenience stores offer slot machines, video poker, and other automated betting. Some of the larger casino space in Wells can be found at the 4-Way Bar/Cafe and the Old West Inn.


Rural Nevada is the only part of the United States with legal, licensed brothels. Wells is home to two of them, both relegated to the other side of the train tracks from the main part of town, with a dedicated access road between 10th Street and the highway to keep them somewhat secluded and out of sight.
