Welcome to Fallon, the “Oasis of Nevada”.
Fallon is the county seat of Churchill County located in the Lahontan Valley 60 miles east of Reno.
It is one of the towns on the so-called "Loneliest Highway in America", the stretch of US HWY 50 across most of Nevada that is known for its remoteness.
It is surrounded by farms and ranches, and the Lahontan Valley Wetlands – a birder’s paradise. With a population of approximately 10,000 Fallon offers the outdoors, the arts, shops, and a menu of special events year round including Rodeos, a Summer Farmer’s Market, the Hearts of Gold Cantaloupe Festival, and the World Cowboy Fast Draw Championships.
Fallon is also home of Naval Air Station Fallon, the U.S. Navy's Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center including the TOPGUN training program.
