To Do and See in Nevada

Nevada has desert, mountains, lakes, and big-city excitement. This means plenty to check out on your days off!

 

The state’s urban crown jewel is, of course, Las Vegas. A city that actually lets you travel the world, with its great pyramids of Egypt, Eiffel Tower, canals of Venice, and more. There’s also a ton of gleefully tacky attractions and loads of bright lights. Roll the dice and do some gambling, get tickets to a concert or theatrical performance, stroll Fremont Street, see the beautiful Bellagio fountains, wander The Strip, and so much more.

 

Outside of Las Vegas, the crowds are much smaller — just ask Highway 50. It’s nicknamed the “Loneliest Highway in America.” Among the vast stretches you’ll also find plenty to check out though, such as the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Lake Tahoe, Great Basin National Park, Bootleg Canyon, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Fire State Park, the Hickison Petroglyphs, and tons more.

 

Nevada has a lot of diversity in its cuisine. You’ll find high-end, foodie hotspots and down-home greasy spoons within its borders. Classic Las Vegas faves include shrimp cocktail and steak & eggs. Also, Sin City famously loves a buffet. Enjoy other state faves here like chateaubriand, onion rings, prime rib, bone-in ribeye, burgers, sushi, paella, Thai food, charcuterie plates, tamales, and more.
