Nevada

The Silver State

As one of the largest states in the US, there is so much more to the Silver State than just the dazzling bright lights of Las Vegas. You certainly won’t run out of things to do be it hiking to a cobalt-blue mountain lake in Great Basin National Park; enjoying the ranch-style hospitality of some of America’s last cowboys; quad biking in the dunes of Sand Mountain; discovering ancient rock art in the Valley of Fire State Park; skiing in Lake Tahoe; playing world-class golf; or driving down Highway 50, America’s loneliest road. With a landscape that stretches from the Mojave Desert to the Great Basin, including 67 protected wilderness areas, not to mention a history ranging from extinct volcanoes to pioneering prospectors, there’s a great deal to do in Nevada. And plenty of ways to see it too: hiking, biking, kayaking, white-water rafting, snowshoeing or even skiing at one of Lake Tahoe’s 15 ski resorts. As if that wasn’t enough the infamous Las Vegas Strip really does offer something for everyone with over 100 world-class shows in town, designer shopping, gourmet dining and spa retreats, international sporting events and, of course, high-stakes poker, rollercoasters and an abundance of dance-tilldawn nightclubs.

 

Highlights

This state of contrasts is epitomised by never-ending skies and wide-open spaces, from the bright lights of Las Vegas to the rugged Wild West countryside. Come here to see showgirls, cowboys, ghosts and 'aliens' at play.

State Secret

Take a trip down the 287-mile 'Loneliest Road in America' through some of the best preserved mining towns. Highway 50 is the way to access the state’s best recreational activities.
