Fun Facts Tallest Tower At 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas is the tallest building west of the Mississippi and the highest freestanding observation tower in the U.S. The tower’s Big Shot; X-Scream; and Insanity, the Ride are the highest thrill rides in the world. Garnet Hunting You can hunt for garnets at many Nevada mines, pay a fee, and take away what you find. At Garnet Hill, officially known as Garnet Fields Rockhound Area, northwest of Ely in the Egan Range, garnet-hunting is free. No Gambling Here You’ll find nary a slot machine nor Keno in Boulder City, the only town in Nevada where gaming is outlawed and has been since the town was established as a federal camp for workers on Hoover Dam in the 1930s. Nevada Day Nevada is the only state in the continental U.S. to observe its admission day with a legal holiday on a Friday, creating a three-day weekend. Nevada’s official birthday is October 31, 1864, but the 1997 Nevada Legislature made the Nevada Day holiday the last Friday in October. Burning Man The counterculture arts festival known as Burning Man is the capper to the long hot Nevada summer when upwards of 47,000 people camp in the Black Rock Desert over Labor Day weekend. Burning Man’s tent city becomes the 11th largest city in Nevada during its run. “Burners” bring all they need to survive in the harsh environment, and when they depart, they leave no trace. Gaming Fact Gambling on sports, legally, can be done only in Nevada. Of the total amount bet nationwide on the Super Bowl, only about 1.5 percent of the bets are legal—and these are made by people over age 21 and physically present in the state of Nevada, according to the American Gaming Association. Lock Your Love In Lovelock, you can display your enduring love with a “lovers lock,” an ancient Chinese tradition where couples fasten a lock to a never-ending chain and throw away the key. According to the custom, as long as the lock remains on the chain, your love will be everlasting. Levis Invented In Nevada The first pair of Levi jeans was sewn in 1870 by a Reno tailor named Jacob Davis. In 1872 he partnered with Levi Strauss, a materials supplier of San Francisco. Mile High Country The average elevation of Nevada is 5,000 feet, or nearly a mile. No wonder it’s called “high desert”!

Oldest Tree The world’s oldest species of tree, the bristlecone pine, is found at Great Basin National Park and in a handful of mountain ranges. These trees can live for 5,000 years. Most Mountains Nevada, despite being considered a dry, desert landscape, has more mountain ranges—314—than any other state. Unique Ballot Since 1976 voters in Nevada have been able to show their displeasure with candidates for public office by voting for “none of the above.” Mob Monument A tribute to Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel stands in the gardens of the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. Bugsy opened the hotel in 1946 using mob money, but he was rubbed out at his girlfriend’s Beverly Hills home after costs skyrocketed. 50-Year-Old Show Feathered and sequined showgirls have been parading on stage since 1959 in the Tropicana’s “Folies Bergére,” Las Vegas’ longest running show. What’s In A Name Winnemucca is the only town in Nevada named after an American Indian—Chief Winnemucca, a Northern Paiute whose daughter, Sarah, was the first American Indian woman to write a book in English. Wildlife Abounds The Desert National Wildlife Refuge encompasses 1.5 million acres of the Mojave Desert and is the largest wildlife refuge in the lower 48 states. Refuge staff work at the Corn Creek Field Station, about 23 miles north of Las Vegas on U.S. 95, a major access point to the refuge. Neon Trail As you might expect, America’s only nighttime National Scenic Byway is found in Las Vegas. Las Vegas Boulevard, better known as the Strip, shines like no place on earth. The Strip begins with the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign on Sunset Road and ends at Sahara Avenue. Wild West Saloon It was at the Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings that Clark Gable waited to hear the fate of his beautiful wife, Carole Lombard, who died in a plane crash on nearby Potosi Mountain. The saloon is still open, where original newspaper clippings tell this and other stories from earlier days.

What’s New There’s nothing like that wonderful new-car smell, and no one does new better than Nevada, especially Las Vegas. Take the Trump International Hotel & Tower Las Vegas, which opened in spring 2008, featuring a spa, gourmet dining and more than 2,000 square feet of meeting space. Also a fresh face on the Strip in 2008, The Palazzo, connected to the Venetian by a series of walkways and waterways, brings yet another luxurious resort-casino to the entertainment capital. Pools, shops, spas—the new kid on the block offers everything Las Vegas’ more well-known properties do. Expected to be completed late in 2009, MGM Mirage’s CityCenter will redefine the Las Vegas skyline with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The property will conserve water and energy and still provide the top-of-the-line entertainment that Las Vegas visitors are used to. Continuing the resort theme, Reno’s Peppermill Resort Spa Casino recently expanded, adding a 17-story, 600-room tower. The Tuscany Tower, as it’s called, defines luxury. All the rooms are suites and include plasma TVs and views of the Reno skyline or the Sierra Nevada. The tower also includes a salon and spa, as well as a luxury restaurant.

On Interstate 80 just west of downtown Reno, outdoor superstore Cabela’s opened its first Nevada location in late 2007. The store features a taxidermy mountain, aquarium, laser shooting gallery, gun library, restaurant, fly-fishing area and gift shop. Not to be outdone, Scheels, another sports and outdoor megastore, will open in fall 2008 in Sparks, Reno’s close neighbor. As part of the Legends at Sparks Marina— expected to contain such attractions as Saddle Ranch Chop House and T-Rex: A Prehistoric Family Adventure—the gigantic Scheels will feature its own taxidermy mountain and aquarium, but will throw in a 16-car indoor Ferris Wheel for good measure. In spring 2009, SK Baseball will bring Triple-A action to downtown Reno. The team will be playing Pacific Coast League foes such as the Las Vegas 51s and Sacramento River Cats. The park will hold 10,000 and feature picnic-style seating on a berm beyond right field and a children’s play area beyond the center-field wall.

Other interesting “news” in Nevada: Heavenly Mountain Resort unveiled the Heavenly Flyer, an elevated zip-line ride that sends passengers on a 50-mph thrill ride with a 525-foot vertical drop. The Greenheart Company also built a Flightline in Bootleg Canyon near Boulder City. West of Elko, although its exhibits won’t be finalized until 2010, the California Trail Interpretive Center was completed in 2008, offering visitors a lesson on those who passed through the area hundreds of years ago. Tours are available.


Things To Do You won’t find a shortage of things to do in the Silver State. It’s one of the only places you can ski worldclass runs in the morning, then walk world-class greens in the afternoon. You can bike or hike the Tahoe Rim Trail, navigate a kayak on the Truckee River through downtown Reno, take an ATV up Sand Mountain east of Fallon and snowmobile miles of varied terrain near Elko. You can even test your Indy car or NASCAR skills in the Mario Andretti or Jeff Gordon Racing School at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. But that comes after you learn about the five attractions that Nevada does better than anyone else: dining, shopping, weddings, spas and hot springs. It’s not hard to find a good meal in Nevada, from celebrity chefs in Las Vegas to down-home Basque family-style dinners in the northern part of the state. We’ll take you on a culinary tour that will make your mouth water. Mega malls, outlet malls, outdoor malls, even shopping inside resortcasinos—Nevada can satisfy your shopping fix. The word mall makes you cringe? There are plenty of small towns in Nevada that offer boutique shopping and quality goods without the crowds and usual hustle and bustle of the city. Take J.M. Capriola Company in Elko, for instance. The long-running family operation has some of the finest Western wear on the planet. If you want the traditional beautiful wedding, Lake Tahoe is a great place to start, but Nevada also offers a spin on the custom ceremony. For instance, in Las Vegas you can be married by a costumed minister—Roman, Medieval, even an Elvis impersonator! In Laughlin, newlyweds can look forward to a cruise on the Colorado River. Weddings can be stressful, but Nevada also does relaxation like no one else. You can find a diverse collection of spas in many cities around the state, but if you’d rather soak in the great outdoors, the Silver State has many public hot springs.

What’s there to do in Nevada? What’s there not to do?

Dining Whether it’s with a silver spoon or a greasy one, dining in Nevada is as diverse as your typical casino buffet. You’re close enough to the ocean that you can enjoy the finest sushi in the world, yet far enough away that you might run across a restaurant that still uses Old West techniques like Dutch-oven cooking. Las Vegas is revered as one of the world’s great dining destinations with an impressive list of world-famous chefs either running or opening restaurants here. For instance, Wolfgang Puck owns and operates several upscale eateries in Las Vegas: Chinois and Spago in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, Café de Lupo at Mandalay Bay, Wolfgang Puck Café and Grille at the MGM Grand, and the Springs Preserve Café. Emeril Lagasse has opened Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House at the MGM Grand and Delmonico at the Venetian. Las Vegas also is home to some of the world’s top sommeliers, including Andrew Bradbury, who is responsible for the more than 4,000 wines available at Aureole inside Mandalay Bay. Aureole contains a three-story wine tower, which “wine angels” climb via harnesses and ropes to retrieve the bottle of your choice. Then there’s Charlie Palmer. Yeah, he can claim Aureole and the Four Seasons’ Charlie Palmer Steakhouse in Las Vegas, but he recently brought the first celebrity-chef restaurants to Reno. At Grand Sierra Resort, Palmer’s expertise goes into the dishes served at Charlie Palmer Steakhouse and Fin Fish. The Reno property also recently opened Dolce Enoteca e Ristorante, specializing in old-time Italian fare in a modern setting. If you’re not in the mood for white tablecloths, head down Virginia Street for The Nugget’s famous Awful Awful burger— “It’s awful big…and awful good.”

Things To Do

Dining (continued) Lake Tahoe knows how to do food as well. In fact, four Lake Tahoe eateries were recently featured on the Food Network’s “Rachael Ray’s Tasty Travels”: Fresh Ketch (excellent seafood and wine pairings), Sprouts Natural Foods Café (fresh fruit smoothies), The Naked Fish (sushi) and The Burger Lounge (try the Jiffy Burger with peanut butter). Finally, you can’t go to Nevada and not try a Basque family-style dinner. Save room for bread, soup, salad, beans, fries, wine…and an entrée! Ranging across the northern part of the state, from Gardnerville to Reno, Reno to Winnemucca and Winnemucca to Elko, you’ll find a Basque restaurant tucked away for your dining pleasure. Shopping Nevada’s open spaces and unbridled spirit of adventure shouldn’t deter you from thinking of us as a world-class shopping destination. World-class designers claim Las Vegas as their own, unique Western shops dot the state’s rural areas, and cutting-edge ski fashions along with the world’s foremost hunting outfitters in Reno and Lake Tahoe make it possible to find exactly the style of shopping that suits you. Los Angeles has its Rodeo Drive; Milan, its Via Montenapoleone; Paris, its Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré; and Las Vegas, its Strip. Worldrenowned fashion and shopping dot Glitter Gulch from Mandalay Place north to the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, the Fashion Show Mall, Wynn Esplanade and points in between. Designers such as Versace, Ferragamo, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani and more team with top-tier department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and Barneys New York to make Las Vegas the complete shopping destination. If this list of high-end fashions has you clenching your wallet—or chest—in terror, fear not. Las Vegas is also home to some of the best prices available anywhere. With premium outlets such as A/X Armani Exchange, Coach, Diesel, Dolce & Gabbana, Kate Spade, and Off 5th, the Saks Fifth Avenue outlet, you can dress like a hotel heiress or casino mogul, sans that second mortgage on your house.

If taking a piece of Nevada home with you better fits your purchasing plans, virtually every rural town across the state offers souvenirs that you’ll find nowhere else. In Austin, stop in at any of the turquoise shops, such as Nevada Blue Rock & Gem and The Trading Post on U.S. 50. The area is regarded as a turquoise hotspot for its exceptional examples of the semi-precious stone. Elko’s J.M. Capriola Company is worldfamous for its high-quality leatherwork on everything from cowboy belts to custom saddles. With the diversity of offerings across the state, there’s no excuse for returning home with shirts that read, “My wife went to Las Vegas, and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.” For the latest trends in ski gear and apparel, try Reno and Lake Tahoe. Shops at Heavenly Village and Northstar Village are so close to the slopes that you barely have to take your skis off to peruse the racks. When you’re done playing in the snow, stop at Cabela’s, where 125,000 square feet of hunting, fishing and outdoor accessories could keep you occupied for days.

Forget about shopping as an alibi for your next Nevada vacation, let it be your reason. Weddings Each year more than 150,000 travelers to Nevada get hitched. If you have matrimony in mind, Nevada offers you a wide variety of ceremonial options from traditional to extreme. In the wedding capital of the world, Las Vegas, you can be married in an elegant wedding chapel at one of the major hotel-casinos, such as Bellagio or Wynn. Most hotels offer wedding packages. You can opt for a small ceremony or an elaborate event with catering, flowers, music, photography, and the bridal suite. Grand hotel ballrooms allow you to invite hundreds of guests for a sit-down reception. You can wed in a Roman-style temple at Caesars Palace or in a poolside cabana at Paris Las Vegas. Often celebrities say “I do” at one of Las Vegas’ independent chapels, many of which offer themed weddings— think Elvis. Drive-through weddings are quick and easy. You can even be married in a helicopter while flying over nighttime Las Vegas.


In the Reno-Tahoe area, you also will find hotels and chapels open daily, such as the Courtyard Wedding Chapel at John Ascuaga’s Nugget in Sparks and the independent Arch of Reno Wedding Chapel in Reno. Weddings at Lake Tahoe can be spectacular, with mountains and the lake as your backdrop. You can wed on the beach, on a boat, in a balloon or on a mountaintop. The Wedding Chapel at Harveys is elegantly decorated and has 18-foot-tall windows with views of snowcapped peaks. Other resorts with full wedding services are Hyatt Regency, MontBleu and Zephyr Cove Resort. If Western is more your style, you can exchange vows in Virginia City and take a wagon ride to a B&B for your wedding night. You can be pronounced husband and wife at state, city and county parks or at any one of 17 county courthouses around the state—then spend your honeymoon on a hiking, biking, fishing, camping or climbing trip. You can even get married at Burning Man, the counterculture festival held at the end of August in the Black Rock Desert north of Reno. Nevada does not require a blood test or waiting period. You can purchase a wedding license at marriage bureaus located around the state. In Reno and Las Vegas, you can obtain a license seven days a week until midnight or you can complete an online application and take it with you to the marriage bureau. Nevada’s destinations are perfect venues for bachelor and bachelorette parties and engagements, as well. Spas With all of the excitement to be found in Nevada’s wild mountains, exhilarating ski slopes, action-packed casinos and resorts and irresistible shops, we thought that you could use some time to relax before setting out on your next Silver State excursion. You should have no trouble rejuvenating your adventure-weary body at any of the spas that dot every corner of the state from the hyperactive Las Vegas Strip to serene Lake Tahoe pine forests.

Las Vegas is a city that seems incapable of mediocrity, and no place is this more true than in its world-class spas. The two-story, 69,000-squarefoot Canyon Ranch SpaClub at the Venetian is the city’s largest. In addition to all the normal spa offerings, Canyon Ranch has a wellness center that offers physical therapy, acupuncture, and a nutritionist. The Zen-influenced Spa & Salon Bellagio employs Eastern massage techniques, such as their signature Bellagio Stone Massage, to bring hotel guests near Nirvana. For a tropical getaway on the Strip, Spa Mandalay’s beach ambiance makes visitors forget they are in a desert and their aloe body wrap is just the cure for sun-parched skin.

Even vacations can be tiring so go ahead and take a break. We think you’ve earned it. If your mind and body have to escape the Strip to get away from it all, the Ritz-Carlton Spa at Lake Las Vegas and its special massages and treatments are a refreshing change of pace with an excellent view of the Las Vegas lights in the valley below. On the opposite edge of the city, at the foot of Red Rock Canyon, The Spa at Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa is an ultra-hip, modern establishment. Bright red walls pop against stark white and black furniture and sheer curtains contrast well with the natural beauty of the canyon. Although Las Vegas rules relaxation, the rest of the state has plenty to offer travelers looking to unwind. The Tuscan-inspired spa at Siena Hotel Spa Casino, on the Truckee River in the heart of downtown Reno, is a peaceful getaway. The Peppermill Resort Spa Casino is putting the finishing touches on its new, world-class three-story European spa set for completion in fall 2008. The spa will include marble steam and sauna rooms and a quiet sun deck overlooking the pool. Onsen Spa at Lake Tahoe’s Mont Bleu Resort Casino and Spa is a serene escape nestled in majestic pines on the south shore of the most breathtaking alpine lake in the world. For a luxurious pampering on Lake Tahoe’s north shore, visit Stillwater at Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort & Spa.

Things To Do

Hot Springs Anyone who’s been to a Las Vegas show or the pool at Hard Rock Hotel already knows: Nevada is one hot place for a vacation. And they haven’t even seen the hottest side of our state. Nevada’s unique geography makes it home to more hot springs than any other state in the country—312 to be exact. With so many, there’s bound to be one that fits you just right. Spend a relaxing weekend getting pampered in the shadow of the majestic Carson Range at David Walley’s Resort, Hot Springs, and Spa in Genoa. Park your RV at Bailey’s Hot Springs outside of Beatty or Carson Hot Springs Resort in Carson City and enjoy a soothing dip. If you prefer solitude, choose from any of our undeveloped hot springs—such as Bog Hot Springs outside of Denio, Kyle Hot Springs near Winnemucca, Spencer Hot Springs in the Big Smoky Valley, or Fish Lake Hot Well near Dyer—that dot the Silver State. If you don’t mind working a little for your reward, try Gold Strike Hot Springs or Arizona Hot Springs near the Colorado River; both require a hike of several miles to reach.

We’ve drawn your bath, so jump on in. The water’s fine. The interior of the earth is composed of molten rock. Nevada’s basin and range topography—picture the state’s many parallel mountain ranges and valleys as a giant accordion—combined with its exceptionally active geology gives the state some of the thinnest continental crust on earth. That means the magma beneath is close enough to the surface that water passing through it can find a weak spot, like a fault. Paradoxically, all that underground churning and turmoil translates into a relaxing, bubbly soak when the water works its way to the surface as a hot spring. While exploring Nevada’s geothermal pools, keep in mind that some of our hot springs can get a little too hot. Diana’s Punch Bowl in the mountains between Austin and Tonopah is best appreciated from dry land, as is its Gerlach cousin, Black Rock Hot Spring. It should go without saying that even at developed hot springs, a little common sense goes a long way. Pay attention to all signs and warnings, test the water before entering and NEVER enter unmarked hot springs.

Outdoor Recreation Nevada has an outdoor activity suitable for any taste and any season. With its tens of thousands of acres of undeveloped land, more than 300 rugged mountain ranges, dozens of untamed rivers and picturesque lakes and year-round sunshine, the only setback will be finding the time to enjoy it all.

No need to pinch yourself, this isn’t a dream—it’s Nevada. Between all the skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing and other activities, winter recreation in Nevada is so varied, there are more than enough options for all skill levels. Thanks to the state’s moderate weather and high elevations, snow often lasts well into spring—even summer in some years—making it possible to ski, snowshoe and snowmobile well into May. If you’ve had enough of the cold, take to the trails for hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding. This is also one of the best times to enjoy the world-class rock climbing in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. The spring runoff sets Nevada’s rivers and lakes up as perfect kayaking spots. Downtown Reno’s Truckee River Whitewater Park is set up to make kayaking both fun and challenging. There are also a few spots upriver that float calmly toward town and avoid crowds. Lake Tahoe’s crystal-clear blue waters are replenished by surrounding snow this time of year, and the views are spectacular from your spot on the lake. It’s also a great time to enjoy the milder Las Vegas weather and take a day trip into Red Rock Canyon for a hike among some awesome scenery. Summers in Nevada mainly revolve around water. From boating to waterskiing and wakeboarding, rafting, kayaking and sun bathing, the Silver State is lake and river obsessed. Beat the Las Vegas heat with a plunge into lakes Mead or Mohave or soak up the mountain scenery at Lake Tahoe, where cold-tolerant swimmers can even scuba dive. Autumn is one of the best times to be in Nevada. Warm days mean you can still enjoy water sports or take a hike, and cool evenings mean you can venture back into the desert after the summer heat subsides. The fall colors in the mountains are the perfect setting for a family outing. This is also the start of hunting season, when sportsmen set their sights on mule deer, elk, antelope, chukar and bighorn sheep.


Parks

When you visit Great Basin National Park, you’ll feel like you‘ve got it all to yourself. Trails are not as crowded as they are at the more visited parks, and you’re likely to encounter only a few people in the upper elevations. Located east of Ely off U.S. 50, the park is just inside the Nevada-Utah border.

Mormon Station; photo by Zack Frank

Hiking and backpacking are popular, with a range of trails suited for most abilities. If you are feeling fit, trek to the top of 13,063-foot Wheeler Peak in six to seven hours. If a leisurely hike is more your speed, take the 2.8-mile trail to see the longest-living plant on earth—the bristlecone pine, some of which are 5,000 years old.

Valley of Fire is the state’s oldest park, with 3,000-year-old petroglyphs carved in sandstone and breathtaking maroon-colored rock formations. Mormon Station in Genoa and the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort feature replicas of 19th-century fortifications and boast visitor centers explaining regional history.

Before you begin your explorations, you can tour the visitor center in Baker. At the park’s Lehman Caves you’ll see ornate stalactites, stalagmites and rare limestone shield formations.

Many campgrounds are open all year, the trailheads are well-marked and facilities at many parks include RV dump stations, showers and group day-use facilities. You even can stay in a yurt at Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park near Ely.

Great Basin is the only national park located totally within Nevada, but a portion of Death Valley National Park lies inside the Nevada-California border, and the major access point to Death Valley is on the east side off U.S. 95. Death Valley beckons visitors with views of sculpted badlands, redtinted canyons and sweeping cracked playas. You can backpack, watch wildlife and take photos. In winter you’ll find cool-to-mild temperatures and RVers flock here, but it gets very hot in the summer. The park is reached from U.S. 95 at Scotty’s Junction, at Beatty (you might want to make a side trip to Rhyolite, a haunting Nevada ghost town), through Amargosa Valley, and from Pahrump. The Nevada State Park system maintains 25 parks, recreation areas, and historic sites stretched across terrain as diverse as alpine forests and bone-dry deserts. You can camp, fish, hike, swim, bird watch and stargaze—or mountain bike, ride horses, boat and water ski. Several state historic sites preserve Nevada’s past.

Several parks offer seasonal programs and host special events. Cathedral Gorge interpreters lead guided moonlight hikes. Live performances in summer include the Shakespeare Festival at Lake Tahoe’s Sand Harbor and Super Summer Theater at Spring Mountain State Park near Las Vegas. Cave Lake State Park near Ely hosts the White Pine Fire & Ice Show, which features a snow sculpture contest and fireworks. Although you can get into most parks year-round, it’s best to check ahead in the winter months. Sledding, ice skating and ice fishing are popular cold weather activities. Live out incredible adventures inside any of Nevada’s diverse parks. Time travel through Nevada’s storied past, trek across stunning terrain brimming with natural wonders, get a taste of the state’s rich culture and so much more. It’s all here – the only thing missing is you. More information: Parks.TravelNevada.com

Golf Rolling hills, lush green grass, majestic pines, swaying palms, languidly flowing streams and serene waterfalls are showcased in Nevada golfing. If it’s not exactly what you expected, prepare to be pleasantly surprised. The Silver State is home to some of the best courses in the country. Combine that with more than 300 days of sunshine annually, comfortable year-round play in the Las Vegas area, and sweeping views of the Sierra Nevada from courses in and around Reno and Lake Tahoe, and you’ve got what may well be golf Shangri-La. With more than 100 courses to choose from, your clubs may need replacing before you run out of options. From casual, low-key courses in rural towns to the exclusive, PGA-caliber courses of Las Vegas, Henderson, Reno, and Lake Tahoe, Nevada has the right fit for any golfer. The challenging courses throughout the state will entice you to stay a few extra days and avoid going back to working life. It’s quite all right with us if you’d like to hang around. Mesquite in southern Nevada is quickly emerging as a stand-out golf destination in its own right. The Golf Channel even chose the city to play host to its reality series “The Big Break” for a season. Wellsituated on both the Arizona and Utah borders, a trip to Mesquite is just a short drive from downtown Las Vegas but seems worlds away. Wolf Creek Golf Club is truly impressive, being named one of the best new golf courses for two years running by both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine. If you’re not so confident in your game, but enjoy watching others who are, Nevada is home to the Celebrity Golf Championship (South Lake Tahoe), Legends Reno-Tahoe Open, a PGA TOUR event (Reno) and Shriners Hospitals for Children Open (Las Vegas).

Winter Recreation Nevada means “snow-covered” in Spanish, and with more than 30 feet of snow annually in some of the state’s 314 mountain ranges, it delivers.

Northstar; photo by Ryan Jerz

Lake Tahoe, with about 22,000 acres of skiing at 15 resorts, is one of the premier ski destinations in the world. From Olympic-caliber double black diamond runs at Squaw Valley, to groomed trails with breathtaking views of the lake at Heavenly, Homewood and more, Lake Tahoe has a ski run for everyone. The fun doesn’t stop there. Make your own trail in Elko’s Ruby Mountains with a heli-skiing excursion. The unspoiled wilderness and untouched powder of eastern Nevada is an experience you will remember the rest of your life. Even the south gets into the action with Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort less than an hour north of the Las Vegas Strip. Cross country skiing at Spooner Lake, Camp Richardson or Tahoe-Donner is a great way to take in some mountain scenery or bundle up for a midnight snowshoe trek at Northstar, Squaw Valley or Great Basin National Park.

If you like a little octane in your winter-adrenaline cocktail, try snowmobiling on the thousands of untamed acres of winter wonderland around Elko and the Sierra Nevada west of Reno. To keep it more relaxing, why not try a sleigh ride at the base of the Sierra, or hop on a dog-powered sled to be pulled along some spectacular scenery. You can even ice fish at Wildhorse Reservoir near Elko area or Cave Lake near Ely. For a unique experience, try your hand at ice and snow sculptures at White Pine Fire and Ice Show.

Las Vegas Territory

Towering peaks, breathtaking vistas, a wild, rushing river…not exactly what comes to mind when you think of Las Vegas? Then perhaps it’s time we properly introduce you. The Las Vegas Strip is synonymous with vacation fun. You can shop to your heart’s content at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace or the Fashion Show Mall, splurge on exquisite gourmet meals, indulge in decadent spa treatments at Wynn Las Vegas, Bellagio or any other resort and party until sunrise at some of the hottest clubs in the world. But Las Vegas has way more to offer than just what lies on The Strip’s playground. Just minutes from the mega-resorts, the Springs Preserve is essentially a living museum. Exhibits focus on everything from Las Vegas history to desert wildlife to the dynamics of a flash flood. You’ll want to set aside an entire day to take it all in. With your newfound desert know-how you can venture into Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area or Valley of Fire State Park, each with spectacular rock formations and miles upon miles of trails to explore. Red Rock also is considered a rock-climbing Mecca for its hundreds of highquality climbs on nearly perfect sandstone. For a first-hand view of the raw power of nature, visit the Hoover Dam. Built in 1936, it is the third-highest dam in the world and supplies power to more than 20 million people in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Los Angeles and San Diego. Make a day out of your dam visit and stop in Boulder City for lunch at one of the many cafés that line the quaint town’s main street. Nevada’s southernmost city, Laughlin, is home to one of the country’s most popular motorcycle rallies, the Laughlin River Run, and offers the same high-quality dining, gaming and entertainment as Las Vegas at a more laid-back pace. Primm, 43 miles south of Las Vegas on Interstate 15, is California’s gateway to the Las Vegas region. Many travelers try their first hand with lady luck here on their way to the main event. In the opposite direction, 79 miles northeast of the city, Mesquite greets westbound travelers from Arizona. Relaxing resorts and exceptional golf courses might charm you into a vacation extension.

If the only thing keeping you from making that Las Vegas sojourn is the perceived lack of ski slopes, think again. Mount Charleston, less than an hour north of the city, offers skiing and snowboarding in the winter months. Hiking and camping in the alpine forests of the Spring Mountains is a great way to beat the summer heat from the valley below.

With all your options in and around Las Vegas, another suitcase (or two) might come in handy.

Must See Las Vegas Territory

Hoover Dam; courtesy LAS VEGAS NEWS BUREAU

Hoover Dam (Boulder City) Located in Black Canyon on the Colorado River about 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, at more than 700 feet tall Hoover Dam is an amazing Nevada spectacle, especially considering it was built more than 70 years ago. Each year, about a million people take the tour of the dam and millions more drive across it. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Just a few miles west of Las Vegas, Red Rock Canyon encompasses nearly 200,000 acres of the Mojave Desert, so it’s no surprise that there are ample biking, hiking and climbing opportunities available. If you’d rather enjoy your air-conditioned car—after you peruse the comfortable and informative visitor center—a 13-mile scenic drive offers many chances to stop and enjoy the sights. Springs Preserve Three miles west of downtown Las Vegas, the Springs Preserve is a non-gaming cultural and historical attraction designed to honor Las Vegas’ fascinating history and to educate visitors about sustainable living. Considered the birthplace of Las Vegas, the site of the Preserve was once home to bubbling springs that were a source of water for American Indians, travelers of the Old Spanish Trail and Mormons who settled the West. The Preserve includes colorful desert botanical gardens, museum galleries, outdoor concerts and events, an indoor theater, a historic photo gallery and a series of walking trails that meander through a scenic wetland habitat.

The Las Vegas Strip From the posh resorts like Wynn Las Vegas and the Trump Towers to themed ones such as the pyramid-shaped Luxor, Roman-inspired Caesars Palace, and Manhattan-high-rise-replica New York-New York, the Las Vegas Strip is a world within a city. You could spend months here watching world-class entertainment and eating in the finest restaurants. If you only have a day, remember that Las Vegas Boulevard constitutes America’s only nighttime scenic byway.


Golf Mesquite; courtesy LAS VEGAS NEWS BUREAU

Mount Charleston Less than an hour drive west of Las Vegas lies a beautiful mountain escape in the community of Mount Charleston. With the nearly 12,000-foot-high Charleston Peak in close proximity, the area is about 20 degrees cooler than Las Vegas in the summer, perfect for picnicking, hiking and horseback riding. In the winter, you can catch one of four lifts to access 11 trails at Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort in Lee Canyon—yes, there’s skiing in Las Vegas! Mesquite golf With your choice of several championship courses in the picturesque Virgin River Valley, only an hour north of Las Vegas, there’s plenty of green to go around. And when a Golf Channel show, “The Big Break Mesquite,” and a Web site (golfmesquitenevada.com) are dedicated to golfing Mesquite, you can bet your shiny new driver that you won’t be disappointed by this destination that hugs the Arizona and Utah borders. Valley of Fire State Park (Overton) Fifty-five miles northeast of Las Vegas, Valley of Fire is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park, dedicated in 1935. The valley gets its name from the red sandstone formations that define the Mojave Desert. Areas of petrified wood and 3,000-year-old Indian petroglyphs represent ancient trees and early man. Popular activities include camping, hiking, picnicking and photography. The park, open year-round, offers a visitor center and several group-use areas.

Laughlin jet skiing Sometimes a must-see leads naturally into a must-do, and that’s the case with jet skiing in Laughlin. At the center of the water activity in this Nevada-Arizona border town is the Colorado River. A plethora of rental companies abound, making it easy for you to hit the liquid for a day of cruising. Laughlin’s pleasant winter weather makes it attractive to snowbirds around the world.

Fremont Street Experience Before the Strip sprung up in Las Vegas, there were the casinos that started it all—the 100 year-old Golden Gate, the Golden Nugget, Binion’s (99-cent shrimp cocktail, anyone?) and more. This is the Fremont Street Experience, what some might call vintage Las Vegas. It’s also home to Viva Vision, the biggest big screen on the planet. The giant LED screen towers 90 feet above a pedestrian mall packed with shopping kiosks and two performance stages. Desperado roller coaster (Primm) Sure, there are fast roller coasters in Las Vegas, but you only have to drive 40 miles south to catch one of the tallest in North America. That would be Desperado, located in Primm. With a 225-foot drop on the first hill, Desperado is worth the detour for thrill seekers. As the coaster makes the snail-like ride to the top of the first hill, passengers can take in stunning views of the entire Primm Valley. But get ready for an 80mph descent!

Reno-Tahoe Territory

“America’s Adventure Place” is how some describe the Reno-Tahoe area. That said, you’ll find plenty of action in Nevada’s westernmost territory.

Reno’s downtown, highlighted by the Truckee River Whitewater Park and Riverwalk District, continues to be revamped, and now includes a wine walk and beer crawl to help fill two Saturday afternoons a month. When the big events hit the city, such as Hot August Nights (classic cars), Street Vibrations (motorcycles) and the National Championship Air Races (planes), Reno-Tahoe rises to a whole new level of fun. With celebrity-chef restaurants—try Charlie Palmer’s Steakhouse and Fin Fish at Grand Sierra Resort—great shopping such as The Summit and Cabela’s outdoor store, world-renowned events, and a blossoming downtown district, Reno is one of northern Nevada’s most diverse destinations. Reno’s close neighbor, Sparks, will soon claim the largest Scheels outdoor and sports superstore in the world, opening in fall of 2008. Then there’s Lake Tahoe, more than 70 miles of majestic shoreline with recreation opportunities galore in and around the clear, blue body of water. South Lake Tahoe has all the casinos, world-class acts and nightlife Nevada is known for, while all around the lake outdoor activities abound: hiking, biking, camping, and water sports in the warm months, and world-class skiing (downhill and cross country), snowboarding, and snowshoeing in the winter. The Lake Tahoe Music Festival and Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival head the list of many intriguing Tahoe events. Hey, the stats don’t lie—Lake Tahoe was the number one destination booked by travelers on Orbitz.com in a recent six-month period, and TripAdvisor ranked it the number-one U.S. destination in 2008. If history is your fascination, be sure to visit Virginia City, with a main street seemingly out of the 1800s. Carson Valley’s quaint towns of Genoa, Minden and Gardnerville are ripe with Nevada nostalgia, like the Genoa Bar and Saloon, Nevada’s oldest watering hole. In Carson City, the state capital, the Kit Carson Trail historical walking tour is available, and the city is home to the Nevada State Museum, along with landmarks such as the Carson Mint at the Nevada State Museum and the silver-domed State Capitol. In addition to Lake Tahoe, Pyramid Lake, north of Reno, is one of Nevada’s liquid gems. Completely within the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation, the lake is the largest remnant of ancient Lake Lahontan. Visitors will find some of the best fishing in Nevada and Anaho Island, home to a large colony of American White Pelicans.

If isolation is what you desire, the Black Rock Desert—home to the unique counterculture event, Burning Man—is a more rugged playground. Beware of the summer heat and, if it rains, a mud-soaked playa.

Reno-Tahoe has something for everyone, so be sure you stay long enough to take it all in.

Must See Reno-Tahoe Territory National Automobile Museum, The Harrah Collection (Reno) There are car collections, then there are world-renowned car collections. This Reno museum was named one of the best 16 car museums in the world by Autoweek, and it’s easy to see why. Visitors can view decades of fascinating cars and stroll down four period street scenes, each symbolizing a quarter of the 20th Century, and look forward to a series of rotating special exhibits. If you need a guide, there are audio tours, people-led tours and theater presentations. Nevada Museum of Art (Reno) For a cultural experience that rivals any other in the Silver State, the Nevada Museum of Art is an experience to be had. The oldest cultural institution in Nevada (founded in 1931), the establishment provides a center for visual arts activities, exhibitions, and artists. The permanent collection has grown to more than 1,500 paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and photographs, which reflect five focus areas centered on land and environment. Past exhibits include the collections of Frida Kahlo and Andy Warhol. Reno Arch You can’t miss this iconic landmark if you’re traveling along Virginia Street in Reno. In 1929, a contest was held to adapt a slogan for the original arch. The winning phrase, “The Biggest Little City In The World,” was branded on the arch and has been a Reno mainstay ever since. The latest arch, which brightens the Reno night sky with red, white and yellow lights, was installed in 1987. It has been featured in many movies, including “Waking Up in Reno.” The original arch can still be viewed on Lake Street downtown.

Nevada State Capitol Building (Carson City) Like so many buildings in Nevada, the Capitol is a symbol of the Silver State’s history. Completed in a year’s time from 1870-71, the structure is defined by its silver-colored dome. The building is the heart of a picturesque campus setting on Carson Street. Imagine snow-covered trees in the winter, golds and reds in the fall, and beautiful blooms in the spring. The Capitol serves the Governor and contains historical exhibits on the second floor. Kit Carson Trail walking tour/Carson City Mint In Carson City, the Convention and Visitors Bureau has conveniently marked a path in blue that guides you through the city’s glorious history. The blue line, known as the Kit Carson Trail, is a 2.5-mile walking tour of the west side, which includes nearly 60 historic homes and buildings, from government buildings to churches to residential neighborhoods. A guide is available through the Convention and Visitors Bureau. You’ll also visit the Nevada State Museum, which houses the Carson City Mint’s Coin Press No. 1. Take home a souvenir, and, one day a month, you can see a live press. Heavenly Gondola (South Lake Tahoe) Just a short walk from the California-Nevada state line and a number of lodging options, the Heavenly Gondola elevates riders to the serenity of an alpine mountain in little more than 10 minutes. The eightpassenger cabins take guests 2.4 miles up the mountain while they enjoy spectacular views of Lake Tahoe. The opportunity to look out over all of Lake Tahoe for as far as the eye can see makes for a perfect afternoon distraction. One of the stops, Adventure Peak, features a grill where you can grab lunch and some hiking paths where you can walk it off.

Lake Tahoe cruises Scenic cruises, dinner cruises, charter cruises, even a wedding cruise— enjoy Lake Tahoe at a more leisurely pace. Through Lake Tahoe Cruises and Zephyr Cove Resort, you can catch either the Tahoe Queen or M.S. Dixie II. Celebrating her 25th anniversary in 2008, the Queen is refurbished and ready to go another quarter-century. Woodwind Cruises offers wine-tasting cruises, even a fireworks cruise on Fourth of July. The company also goes outside the box, offering rides on sailboats. There are a plethora of cruise companies that will make sure you see Lake Tahoe in a new light.

Virginia & Truckee Railroad (Virginia City) At a small depot on F Street in Virginia City, you can catch this 35-minute ride that covers a little less than six miles. During the leisurely experience, riders are treated to an informative talk as the conductor relates anecdotes about the area’s history and points out places of historic interest along the way, including original mining head frames and mill sites. The Virginia & Truckee Railroad Company operates from Memorial Day until the end of October. Plans are in the works to expand the route to 21 miles, concluding in Carson City.

Genoa Bar and Saloon “Nevada’s Oldest Thirst Parlor,” as it says above the entrance, has an intriguing mix of quirky artifacts, including Raquel Welch’s black leopard print bra and signed photo, donated during a movie shoot nearby. Since 1853, drinks have been served and tomato juice (take a look at the ceiling, but don’t ask why) splattered at the bar, which has welcomed presidents, actors, and famous musicians through the years. Be sure to check out the diamond-dust mirror on the back of the bar, which dates to the 1840s. Piper’s Opera House (Virginia City) This establishment has been entertaining audiences since the 1860s, so it’s no surprise that First Lady Laura Bush named it an “American treasure and a national icon.” Recently, the building has been restored to give it modern conveniences and structural reinforcement. Much of the interior furnishings and stage equipment remain intact, however, including the striking hand-painted backdrop scenery. Visitors can catch concerts, plays and dances at the opera house; in fact, the site is revered enough to host the annual Governor’s Ball each Nevada Day.

Cowboy Country

Strap on your hat and pull on your boots for a visit to northern Nevada’s Cowboy Country, where jeans are the fashion norm and nobody stands on ceremony. In this region, Old West hospitality is the rule. When you’re in Elko stop by the Western Folklife Center, the host of the annual National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2009. Basque culture also plays an important role here. The hearty Basque cuisine—steak, beans, salad, fries and rich red wine—is served family-style at several Elko restaurants. The Northeastern Nevada Museum tells the story of pioneers and natural history in the region. For information about the Elko area, check out the Elko Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center, which is housed in Sherman Station, a turn-of-the-20th-century, log-style ranch house. The Ruby Mountains, also known as America’s Alps, rise majestically southeast of Elko. Follow State Route 227 from Elko through Spring Creek to the Lamoille Canyon Scenic Byway, a 12-mile drive that curves upward through glacier-carved turns. You can hike and ride horses on the Ruby Crest Trail, and fishing and bird watching are superb at the Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Off-highway vehicle trails afford miles of ATV action around Ruby Valley and areas near Wells and Deeth. If you want to explore stunning mountains and crystalline lakes the cowboy way, try horsepacking in the Jarbidge Wilderness north of Elko. Several ranches offer Westernstyle vacations. Anglers pull trout and bass from Wilson Reservoir, South Fork and Wild Horse state recreation areas. In winter, ice fishing is popular at these three reservoirs. For a unique winter experience, try Ruby Mountain Heli-Experience, based in Lamoille. In addition to off-road opportunities and wildlife-viewing areas, West Wendover on the Nevada-Utah border has five major casinos with fine dining and lodging, and the Peppermill Concert Hall books top-name entertainment. The Nevada-Idaho border town of Jackpot also boasts casino action and entertainment. Many communities along Interstate 80 serve as base camps for hunters and explorers. Supplies are available—and so are hotels and motels in case you want to sleep in a bed instead of a sleeping bag. After touring a gold mine near Battle Mountain and Carlin, you can sit down for a family-style meal featuring steak, lamb or jumbo prawns in one of Winnemucca’s four great Basque restaurants.

If you want to stretch your legs on your drive, you can stop at Rye Patch State Recreation Area for a picnic beneath tall cottonwoods. If you’re feeling romantic, lock your love in Lovelock by fastening a lock on the never-ending chain at Lovers Lock Plaza, or simply admire the more than 1,000 locks that adorn the plaza.

Activities here are just as rich and as varied as the heritage and backcountry. Revel in the unique mix of outdoor and cultural activities and take a long trip to experience all Cowboy Country has to offer.

Pony Express Territory

You won’t find much traffic as you drive over the mountain passes and across the sagebrush-covered valleys of Nevada’s north central region. In fact, U.S. 50 from Fernley to Ely is known as “The Loneliest Road in America,” so designated by Life magazine more than 20 years ago. Today, you still can earn a certificate proclaiming you survived Highway 50—a tongue-in-cheek marketing campaign launched by the Nevada Commission on Tourism and the region’s tourism officials—by collecting validations in your Highway 50 Survival Guide from businesses in towns along the route. If you keep your tank topped off and carry a few essentials—your MP3 player, munchies, and a sense of adventure—you’ll enjoy your journey as well as survive it. The region is also known as Pony Express Territory because U.S. 50 roughly follows the old Pony Express route. And although the highway is pretty empty, there’s plenty to do. Near Fallon you can visit the ruins of Fort Churchill, an 1860s-era U.S. Army base built to protect settlers, and Lake Lahontan, a reservoir where you can water ski, boat, and camp. In spring and fall, you can watch the thousands of migratory birds make a stop at Stillwater Wildlife Refuge. Just east of Fallon is Sand Mountain, a single enormous sand dune. Complete with spots to camp in tents or in trailers, it’s now a destination for ATVers and sandboarders. Since U.S. 50 aligns with the 1860s Pony Express trail, it’s not surprising to find ruins of several Pony Express stops. At Grimes Point, see petroglyphs left by ancient people who lived on the shores of the ancient Lake Lahontan. In Austin, a once-bustling mining town, you can take a walking tour, shop for turquoise jewelry, or grab an outstanding milkshake at the Toiyabe Café. In Eureka you can see and tour several restored buildings, including the 1879 courthouse, still used by county government, and the Eureka Sentinel Museum, before checking into a modern motel. You might even have the chance to catch a concert or play at the wonderfully restored Eureka Opera House.


Lahontan State Park; photo by Nathan Shahan

Farther east is Ely, where the Ely Renaissance Society has commissioned murals that celebrate the eastern Nevada town’s history. You can step back in time at the Village, where artifacts recreate the early days, and take a ride on a steam train at the Nevada Northern Railway, which runs right from the doors of the State Railroad Museum and the East Ely Railroad Depot. You’ll find the McGill Historical Drug Store Museum in the old Nevada Consolidated Copper Company town of McGill, north of Ely on U.S. 93. Farther east on U.S. 50 lies Great Basin National Park, where you can hike Wheeler Peak, the second highest in the state. Then, at the bi-state Border Inn you can play slots and have a beer and a burger in Nevada, then sleep in your motel room in Utah.

The Loneliest Road doesn’t seem quite so lonely by the time you’ve reached the Nevada/Utah state line!

The Loneliest Road in America In July 1986 U.S. 50 was named “The Loneliest Road in America” by Life magazine, which quoted an AAA spokesman as saying, “It’s totally empty.” Yes, traffic is light from Fernley to Ely, but you will meet friendly people in the towns along the way.

Murals (Ely) On the streets of Ely you’ll come across murals depicting life in this Nevada town of times past. Scenes include Basque sheepherders, copper miners, and Pony Express riders. Also, there are sculptures, such as the statue of a Shoshone woman gathering pine nuts.

Sand Mountain (Highway 50, east of Fallon) Off-roading enthusiasts and ATVers love to buzz up and down Sand Mountain, a 600-foot-high sand dune 22 miles east of Fallon. Sandboarders swoop down the dune just like their snowboarding counterparts. Also, you can camp in designated areas.

Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park (Ely) One of Ely’s murals depicts Ward Charcoal Ovens, six beehive-shaped rock structures where charcoal was made to fuel nearby silver smelters. Now a state park six miles east of Ely on U.S. 50, you can camp and hike or ride off-road vehicles on established trails.

Shoe Tree (Highway 50, between Fallon and Austin) Hundreds of shoes dangle from this 70-foot cottonwood two miles east of Middlegate. Locals say the tradition of tossing your shoes into the branches stems from a newlyweds’ squabble in the early 1990s. Since then, travelers have added their own footwear.

Nevada Northern Railway and Nevada State Railroad Museum (Ely) Have you ever wanted to operate the throttle of a steam locomotive? You can at the Nevada Northern Railway in Ely—for a fee. Nicknamed the Ghost Train of Old Ely, the NNRY offers rentals and excursion rides from mid-April to the end of December, daily in summer.

Turquoise Shopping (Austin) If you like turquoise, you’ll find just about the best quality of the stone at shops in Austin. Local mines produce turquoise that is fashioned into jewelry and sold in a range of prices. You can buy unfinished stones along with custom-designed pieces. Eureka Opera House You might not think that cowboy poetry and Shakespeare plays go together, but at the restored Eureka Opera House these are just two of the many kinds of entertainment you’ll encounter in the restored 1880s cultural arts center, plus art exhibits.

Great Basin National Park (Baker/Ely) At Great Basin National Park you can see a small glacier and visit the longest living plants on earth, bristlecone pines, some 5,000 years old. At the only national park completely contained within Nevada, you can take easy, moderate, and strenuous hikes, climb, fish, camp, and picnic. Lehman Caves (Baker/Ely) Before Great Basin was designated as a national park, there was Lehman Caves National Monument, which is now part of Great Basin National Park. Absalom Lehman, who discovered the limestone cave with its intriguing formations, conducted private tours for hundreds of visitors in the 1880s. You can still tour the caves today.

Nevada Silver Trails

Much of Nevada looks just as it did when the pioneers traveled west more than a century ago. The only addition to the mostly unchanged landscape are the trails that crisscross the topography and offer countless opportunities to get out and explore the region. This is Nevada Silver Trails, and it draws upon the adventurous spirit common to all mankind. The eastern side of the state along U.S. Highway 93 lays claim to the largest National Wildlife Range in the United States. Stop at Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge, a lush, water-rich area teeming with waterfowl and wildlife only two hours northeast of Las Vegas. Search the hiking trails for ancient Indian writings and carvings on the rocks called petroglyphs. Keep driving north to Caliente, a town that got its name from the bubbling hot springs nearby. Caliente is also the perfect headquarters for exploring the surrounding 14 wilderness areas and the Silver State OHV trail. Traveling farther north, you’ll find one of the deadliest towns in the Old West, Pioche. Rich gold mines in the 1860s put Pioche on the map, but the miners weren’t about to let any ol’ stranger come into town and threaten their gold claims, and they were willing to back up their claims with loaded six-shooters. Rumor has it that 75 men were buried in the cemetery before anyone died of natural causes. Today Pioche is a picturesque community with a hopping saloon, and wide-open terrain for hiking and ATVing. For a truly “out of this world” experience, set out on State Route 375, also known as the “Extraterrestrial Highway.” This east-west route skirts the famous Area 51. Travelers tell stories of UFOs and strange happenings in the desert, which looks eerily like another planet. The hub of all things extraterrestrial is in Rachel, a small town with one restaurant, one motel, 98 residents and an unknown number of aliens. The restaurant and motel, aptly named the Little A’Le’Inn, serves up a tasty Alien Burger and their signature cocktail, the Cherry-a 51. The pioneers who settled in Nevada made their fortunes in gold and silver, but those fortunes didn’t always last, and the ghost towns that dot the Nevada landscape are testaments to their fleeting wealth. One of the most photographed ghost towns is Rhyolite, near the southwestern border of the state. Nearby Goldfield was once one of the largest cities in the state with 30,000 residents, an opulent hotel, large courthouse and many affluent families. Now only a few hundred call this town home.

Nevada Silver Trails is a fascinating window to the past, but a few towns are also looking intently on the future. Pahrump is a thriving city just a short drive from Las Vegas, complete with large casinos and resorts and one of the state’s first wineries.

Whether it’s exploring ghost towns, searching for UFOs or taking the adventure off-road, this part of Nevada beckons the pioneer spirit in all of us.

Must See Nevada Silver Trails Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park (Berlin via Gabbs) Did you know that much of Nevada was once covered by a prehistoric sea? Come see the fossils of ichthyosaurs that once swam in the sea. Berlin is a high-altitude ghost town located 23 miles east of Gabbs, and the park is open year-round, although cold winter conditions can make access limited.

Walker Lake (Hawthorne) An excellent example of a high-desert lake, Walker Lake is a quiet basin surrounded by sagebrush and mountains. It is home to abundant fishing, bird-watching and boating. Only 135 miles southeast of Reno, it is the perfect destination for a weekend getaway in northern Nevada. Belmont Nevada has many ghost towns, but few are as well-preserved with as many intact buildings as Belmont. Visitors can stay at the Historic Belmont Inn Bed & Breakfast and explore the many mining ruins and deserted buildings or head off into the Arc Dome and Table Mountain Wilderness areas for days of adventure. Silver State OHV Trail (Pioche and Caliente) Rev up your engine and set out on the 260-mile scenic Silver State OHV Trail system that winds through the southeastern part of the state. The trail is open to hiking, equestrian, mountain biking, 4x4 and motorcycle use, but ATV riding seems to be its true calling. Tonopah Mining Park (Tonopah) More than 100 acres from four major mining companies comprise this fascinating outdoor museum. Check out the mining equipment and gaze down the 500-foot-deep “stope,” or vertical tunnel used to extract ore. Stargazing (Tonopah) Tonopah lays claim to the “darkest night sky in the nation,” as named by USA Today, making it the best place to stargaze. Countless stars and celestial beings can be seen from this quiet mining town 209 miles from Las Vegas and 236 miles from Reno. Goldfield Due to the area’s rich gold mines in the early 1900s, Goldfield sprang up in western Nevada, full of vigor and action. The opulent Goldfield Hotel boasted one of the first Otis elevators west of the Mississippi, and rich gold barons called this Nevada city home. But the gold eventually ran out and now the town is in a state of “arrested decay,” not quite a ghost town… yet. Visitors can still wander the streets and see the buildings and homes much as they were when they were built.

Extraterrestrial Highway (Rachel) Aliens, UFO sightings, a secret government testing facility, moonlike terrain. Is it any wonder State Route 375 gained notoriety as the “Extraterrestrial Highway”? Aliens or not, the Extraterrestrial Highway is eerie, and it is wise to stay on the road and not venture too close to the border of Area 51. Armed guards will quickly tell you to turn around, even though Area 51 doesn’t “officially” exist. But Rachel, the only town along the lonely road, is a much more welcoming place, and the Little A’Le’Inn is the perfect place to get some food, wet your whistle, shop for souvenirs and share tales of extraterrestrial sightings. Cathedral Gorge State Park (Panaca) Towering clay-like spires and deep narrow gullies make up this strangely beautiful state park in eastern Nevada. Millions of years of erosion have carved away the ancient lakebed that covered the area and left behind breathtaking pillars and caves, a natural cathedral in the Nevada wilderness. Death Valley (Beatty) One of the hottest, harshest and most stunningly beautiful places in the United States, Death Valley must not be missed when traveling in the West. There are many places to camp, hike and explore. For a look at one man’s fortress against the elements, visit Scotty’s Castle, built in the 1920s by “Death Valley Scotty.” The castle saw many a Hollywood guest and party, and the shade-filled castle grounds are a welcome respite from the intense heat of Death Valley.

Indian Territory

The entire state of Nevada is known as Indian Territory, and no wonder. Native peoples have dwelled in the state’s valleys, deserts and mountains for thousands of years. The three major tribes include the Washoe (also spelled Washo), Paiute and Western Shoshone. Twenty-six colonies and reservations spread across the state are vibrant places, where modern American Indians connect with contemporary society but look to traditional ways for spiritual sustenance. The heart of the Washoe lies at Lake Tahoe. In earlier times the tribe gathered at the lake, where they fished and socialized in the summer. In winter, they returned to the valleys below. Today, the tribe operates Lake Tahoe’s Meeks Bay Resort, with cabins, campsites, white-sand beaches, a boat ramp and water sports facilities, with a trailhead that leads to Desolation Wilderness. Each summer the Washoe Tribe participates in the Wa She Shu It Deh Native American Arts Festival at the Tallac Historic Site on the lake’s south shore. The event showcases Washoe fancy basketry, contemporary Indian art, music, fine art, film, photography and storytelling. The annual Father’s Day Powwow is held at the former Stewart Indian School—parts of which are being developed as a tribal cultural center—in Carson City. In ancient times the Paiutes called themselves Numu, their word for The People. Different Paiute groups occupy tribal areas across the state, including Fallon, Pyramid Lake, Smith and Mason valleys, RenoSparks, Stillwater and Walker River. The Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe operates the Scenic Byway Visitors Cultural Center at Nixon on the south end of Pyramid Lake. The Walker River Paiute Tribe welcomes visitors to the annual Walker River Paiute Tribe Annual Pinenut Festival in Schurz in the fall. A spiritual ceremony celebrates the harvest of the pine nut, a traditional food. In Las Vegas, the Snow Mountain Powwow draws participants from across the United States and Canada for a three-day festival, which includes dancing, singing and sales of American Indian arts.

Powwow; photo by Marvin Minnick

The Western Shoshone continue the American Indian tradition of living closely with the environment, and today tribal members are taking part in efforts to address critical water issues, conservation and questions relating to ancestral homelands. The Ely Shoshone Powwow is held in the summer and includes dance and vendor booths as well as handgame, softball and horseshoe tournaments. The Elko Te-Moak Powwow features dancers in colorful regalia dancing in the streets of downtown Elko on the first day of the three-day event. The Duckwater Shoshone Spring Festival welcomes visitors to learn about Native culture.

MustIndian See Territory

Pyramid Lake Museum; photo by Ryan Jerz

Pyramid Lake Scenic Byway (Nixon and Sutcliffe) Northeast of Reno lies Pyramid Lake Scenic Byway, which is located entirely inside a tribal reservation. The byway has stunning views of the desert lake, and on the eastern shore you’ll find the signature Pyramid-shaped tufa formation. Fishing and camping permits can be obtained at the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe’s Museum and Visitor Center. Grimes Point (Fallon) You can marvel at ancient petroglyphs, also known as rock art, at the Grimes Point Archaeological Site east of Fallon on U.S. 50. The site features a National Recreation Trail that leads you to hundreds of boulders etched with circles, wavy lines, human figures and snakes and other animals. Some of the art is dated to 6,000 years ago.

Sarah Winnemucca Statue (Carson City) A bronze statue of Sarah Winnemucca, a 19th-century Paiute educator, advocate for Indian rights and the first Native woman to write a book, is on display at the Nevada Capitol in Carson City. The statue is a duplicate of the statue installed in National Statuary Hall in Washington, D.C., in 2005. Mary and Moe’s Wigwam (Fernley) From the outside, Mary and Moe’s Wigwam looks like an ordinary family restaurant, perched on West Main Street in Fernley. Inside, not only can visitors enjoy home-style breakfasts, lunches and dinners, they also can browse among displays of American Indian artifacts and Western art.

Toquima Caves (Austin) A chain-link fence at Toquima Caves protects pictographs, ancient rock art similar to petroglyphs but painted instead of carved. The site is east of Austin on U.S. 50 and State Route 376 off a dirt road. The symbols include round and wavy lines, stripes and figures. A short hiking trail from a U.S. Forest Service campground leads to the caves.

Lovelock Cave (Lovelock) At the Marzen House Museum in Lovelock northeast of Reno on Interstate 80, you can pick up the Lovelock Cave Back Country Byway Tour brochure, which tells of the ancient peoples who camped at nearby Lovelock Cave. Thousands of artifacts, including the Nevada state artifact, a tule duck decoy, were excavated there beginning in 1912.

Hickison Petroglyphs (Austin) Three large panels of petroglyphs are found at Hickison Summit Recreation Area east of Austin on U.S. 50. The site has camping areas, pit toilets, picnic tables and barbecue grills. Pick up a brochure and take the quarter-mile interpretive trail that leads you past the rock carvings to views of Smoky and Monitor valleys.

Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort (Las Vegas) The Las Vegas Paiute Tribe hosts three championship Pete Dye designs at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. All three courses stripe the desert with brilliant green and have fabulous views. The Wolf course, the newest, is the longest course in Nevada. Snow Mountain, the original, and Sun Mountain were given 4.25 star ratings by Golf Digest in 2006.

Dat-So-La-Lee Baskets (Reno and Carson City) Dat-So-La-Lee is the most famous of the Washoe fancy basketweavers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Today, her baskets are worth upwards of $1 million. Examples of Dat-So-La-Lee’s work can be seen at the Nevada State Museum in Carson City and the Nevada Historical Society in Reno.

Lost City Museum (Overton) Visitors can see baskets, points, pottery and replica dwellings at the Lost City Museum in Overton, northeast of Las Vegas. The museum was built by the National Park Service to exhibit ancient artifacts from Pueblo Grande de Nevada, once inhabited by Anasazi and Puebloan cultures. Much of the site was eventually covered by Lake Mead.
