WELCOME TO NEVADA: A WORLD WITHIN. A STATE APART. There is no other state quite like Nevada. In our great state, a world of beauty and wonder waits to be discovered. Nevadans take pride in our unique events, breathtaking landscapes, groundbreaking ideas, and our living history. Without a doubt, we are truly a state apart. This year we are celebrating our sesquicentennial – our 150th anniversary of statehood – and I promise you, this year is an exciting time to explore Nevada’s history and celebrate our future. In honor of our 150th anniversary, I invite you to discover Nevada anew this year. Take time to seek out parts of the state that you haven’t seen before, and see firsthand how vital Nevada was in settling the “wild west.” Come visit a Pony Express station, or tour a preserved Army Cavalry fort. See where gold was first discovered in Nevada, and walk into a real silver mine deep beneath the surface of Virginia City. The opportunities and possibilities are endless. Maybe this is the year to finally take that road trip along “The Loneliest Road in America” and see living examples of boom-and-bust mining towns. Visit Great Basin National Park and see 3,000-year-old bristlecone pines – the oldest living beings on Earth – for yourself. Stand under the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign or visit the impressive Reno Arch, welcoming you to the Biggest Little City. This is the year for making memories in Nevada. This is the year to stand atop a mountain and say, “I made it!” While Nevada marks 150 years of statehood, we invite you to come and explore new destinations and create new memories. Inside the pages of this guide, you will find endless travel ideas and resources. Use them – or if you would like, call our tourism office – and prepare to enjoy your visit to Nevada: A World Within. A State Apart. We are looking forward to seeing you. Sincerely,

Brian Sandoval, Governor

Dame Nevada There’s a basin, wrought of reason, tortoise dry and clean of air Where rivers hike to meet their fate, get lost and disappear Where Grand Adventure had a say and different would prevail And where only hardy life hangs on to all that it entails Where hidden hints of Eden are revealed to those who seek And where Bristlecone stand sentinel from high atop her peaks Where the Shoshone and the Paiute and the Washo stories tell; ‘ If we but live within Her wishes, we will prosper and live well ‘ Deemed and destined Dame Nevada, cloaked in sage and sunset crowned Making sense and friends and legends, turning prudence upside down She alludes to and may prove to be enigma in disguise Dealing wisdom and compassion, still, refusing compromise She’s the rugged scent of essence and immense in scope and feel Mountainous and rightly stubborn, cold and sensuous and real Open minded and closed fisted and diverse in all she’s of And, as tight with her resources as she’s liberal with her love And She settled hardy settlers, and She dished prospectors ore And She was booming as the U. S. fought its most un-Civil War And when there’s have and needed ‘ bureaucratic tape gets cleared So, She’s flown the flag of statehood now, one hundred fifty years And as stewards of Her masterpiece, the standards been set high, Be protective and responsive to Her needs and feed Her pride And as Nevadans, we should not forget what native stories tell; ‘If we but live within her wishes, we will prosper and live well’

TRAVEL NEVADA

O h give me land, lots of land, under

starry skies above… Don’t Fence Me In!*

The “Don’t Fence Me In” spirit of Nevada has been part of the state’s DNA for 150 years. Nevada embraces the true spirit and the indisputable promise of the West — offering the freedom and sheer space to do what you want, where you want, when you want. This is where you can clear the fences and shatter the boundaries of everyday life and discover the wonder and sheer delight that comes with exploring the many facets of the surprisingly diverse Silver State. Nevada is where forward-thinking entrepreneurs created some of the world’s most exciting and fascinating cities. Behind the dazzling lights pulses a creative energy that energizes a thriving community of artists, global trendsetters and intellectuals. From the first moment you arrive, you’ll feel a surge in energy and desire to enjoy life to the fullest. And, Nevada is where Mother Nature paused for a moment to shower the landscape with incredible riches. Here, tucked within the mountains of snow and valleys of fire, are some of the most breathtaking and exhilarating outdoor adventure experiences found on the planet. And, it’s here, where relaxing under the stars, you can breathe. In this awe-inspiring juxtaposition of the world’s most exciting cities with the immensely wide open, serene landscapes, Nevada offers visitors (and residents) a truly unique World Within and State Apart. The dualities that comprise the Nevada experience create a destination unlike any other. Share your Nevada adventures at TravelNevada.com or tell your favorite Nevada stories on the Travel Nevada Facebook page.

I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences, gaze at the moon ‘til I lose my senses, I cannot look at hobbles and I can’t stand fences… Don’t Fence Me In!*

Don’t Fence Me In, Cole Porter, Used by permission from the Cole Porter Estate.

DISCOVER YOUR NEVADA

Photo Opportunities Grab your phone, find your favorite filter, and prepare for the ultimate photo ops in Nevada. WELCOME TO FABULOUS LAS VEGAS – You’ve seen it on film, T-shirts, belt buckles, and novelty shot glasses – the iconic sign at 5100 Las Vegas Boulevard South is among the most photographed on Earth. No trip to Las Vegas is complete without striking a pose beneath the Sin City symbol.

RENO ARCH – The Biggest Little City in the World has sported its iconic downtown arch since 1926, getting brighter and bolder over the years, just like the town itself. Grab a shot of the neon, glittering arch, and score bonus points if you can frame it with downtown Reno’s towering casinos in the background. RHYOLITE – Ghost towns are as representative of Nevada as sagebrush, and Rhyolite is one of the most photogenic with its crumbling buildings, unusual Bottle House, and outdoor art looming over the barren landscape. Late afternoon is the best time of day to capture the nuances in color and shadow.

WENDOVER WILL – It’s hard to miss the bright lights of West Wendover when traveling Interstate 80 in northeastern Nevada, but in case you do, a friendly 63-foot-tall neon cowboy is waiting to show you the way. Wendover Will watches over the town and welcomes visitors to Nevada’s last hurrah before crossing into Utah. (Make it a matched set by visiting Vegas Vic and Vegas Vickie in downtown Las Vegas!) 8

DISCOVER YOUR NEVADA TREASURE WINNERS

Discover Your Nevada Treasure COWBOY COUNTRY: THE STAR HOTEL AND BASQUE RESTAURANT The Star in Elko is one of Nevada’s most famous Basque restaurants, and serves up meals meant to keep you full for days! Get there early for a Picon Punch at the bar, then get chummy with your neighbor at the family-style dining tables. This stalwart of Basque cuisine is the undefeated Nevada Treasure representing Cowboy Country.

RENO-TAHOE TERRITORY: DANGBERG HOME RANCH HISTORIC PARK Four generations of German ranchers lived in this home, which is now a museum dedicated to telling the story of ranching life in the Carson Valley. Browse kids’ toys, family photos, and clothing worn by the Dangberg family over the last century. This two-time Nevada Treasure is a locals’ favorite gem in the Reno-Tahoe Territory.

PONY EXPRESS TERRITORY: NEVADA NORTHERN RAILWAY A “Ghost Train,” the “Polar Express” and daily excursions through the rugged mountains in eastern Nevada are just part of what makes the Nevada Northern Railway a recurring winner in the Nevada Treasures contest. Visitors can explore the working rail yard and ride historic diesel and steam engines that served the nearby mines when the railway started in 1905.

NEVADA SILVER TRAILS: PAHRUMP VALLEY WINERY One of only four wineries in Nevada, the Pahrump Valley winery an hour from Las Vegas has received more than 375 national awards since 2005, and produced Nevada’s first commercial red wine. It is undeniably a Nevada Treasure with an impressive tasting room and upscale restaurant overlooking vineyards.

LAS VEGAS TERRITORY: NEVADA STATE MUSEUM, LAS VEGAS A Columbian Mammoth greets visitors young and old to the Nevada State Museum, conveniently located at the Springs Preserve in Las Vegas. Learn about Nevada’s history through a collection of immersive, hands-on exhibits. A Las Vegas exhibit takes visitors through Sin City’s vibrant history in full color and neon lighting.

INDIAN TERRITORY: LOST CITY MUSEUM A two-time winner of the Nevada Treasures contest, Lost City Museum tells the story of Nevada’s indigenous tribes. Recreated adobe huts represent the dwellings that were lost to Lake Mead when Hoover Dam was built in the 1930s. This small yet profound museum is a colorful representation of Nevada’s American Indian culture. *Nevada Treasures were selected by popular vote through the 2013 Discover Your Nevada social media contest. Winners were chosen for each of Nevada’s six tourism territories.

COWBOY CULTURE

Cowboy Culture • You know it when you see it: a cowhand clad in leather, denim, and the dust of the range. • You smell it: sagebrush, hay, and oil to the keep the leather from cracking. • You taste it: sizzling steak topped with grilled onions and paired with a heaping side of baked beans. • You hear it: the clink of spurs, the lowing of cattle. Most of all, you remember it: cowboy culture, the most authentic, raw, unadulterated element of American life. 14

COWBOY CULTURE

When we talk about cowboys in Nevada, it’s about the men and women who ride horses and rope cows. They wear boots and hats because they’re useful to the work, not to make a statement – although they could tell you the difference between round-toe and square-toe boots, and the real definition of a “buckaroo.” Horses are modes of transportation and members of the family. We take great pride in our ropin’ and ridin’ skills, and aren’t afraid to grab a guitar and pick a melody. This is the lifestyle that created the art form known as cowboy music and poetry, and it’s celebrated every January in Elko during the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, and in May at the Genoa Cowboy Festival. These poets can spin a yarn that will make your sides ache from laughter and the music transports you to a starry night around the fire.

Guest ranches are the perfect places to get a taste for the country way of life, but don’t expect to be wined and dined; if you’re a guest on a working ranch, you can expect to work. You may help wrangle the cows or feed the horses, and you’ll earn that chuck wagon dinner at the end of the day. The cowboy way of life is celebrated every day at the Western Folklife Center in Elko. Here arts, culture and personal stories of Nevada’s buckaroos and ranchers come to life. Rodeos are a big part of cowboy culture, and Nevada does them right. The Reno Rodeo is known as the wildest, richest rodeo in the West, and the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas is where the best of the best prove their stuff in the arena. TRAVELNEVADA.COM

Cowboy culture

If you feel inclined to really step back in time, there’s no place like Virginia City. The main street is lined with wooden sidewalks, saloons, and gambling halls. You can take a teeth-rattling ride in a stagecoach or climb aboard a vintage steam train. Capture the moment in sepia with your loved ones dressed up as gamblers, cowboys, saloon girls, or miners. On a warm summer day, you may just witness a bank robbery and ensuing shoot-out, but don’t worry, the sheriff always wins. Go ahead and dust off your cowboy hat, and pull on your favorite pair of Levi’s. Life is about comfort here, and we think you’ll fit right in.

Where to experience it: The Winnemucca Ranch Hand Rodeo is about as authentic as it gets, with working cowboys and cowgirls putting their daily chores on display in a test of skill. Venture to Winnemucca, right in the heart of Cowboy Country, the last week of February as ranch hands compete for bragging rights and some cold hard cash in roping, riding, doctoring, and other livestock skills.

The Reno Rodeo Cattle Drive is where wannabe cowboys and cowgirls can become the real thing, if only for a couple of days. Every June in the week leading up to the Reno Rodeo, the rodeo cattle are herded into Reno by pro and novice cowpokes. Your reservation buys you a seat in the saddle, a spot around the nightly campfire, trailside dinner, and an unforgettable experience in the American West. Celebrate Las Vegas’ cowboy history at Helldorado Days in mid-May. This cowboy-themed festival has been rocking southern Nevada for 80 years, and this year moves to a new location near the Smith Center in downtown Las Vegas. The five-day festival includes a pro rodeo, parade, carnival “whiskerino” contest, poker tournament, art show and auction, trail ride, and of course lots of food and entertainment. This year’s event has been named a signature event for the Nevada Sesquicentennial. Cowboy Christmas is a long-standing favorite during the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas every December. This is where smart cow pokes can find gear or buy western gifts from more than 400 vendors just in time for Christmas. Boots and spurs, pottery and silver, furniture and art – it’s all for sale during the 10-day rodeo.

OFF THE BEATEN PATH

Off The Beaten Path Nevada is different. When you cross the state line, you feel a change in the air, a subtle breeze of freedom flicking your hair and enticing you deeper into this land like none other. This state was built by mavericks, fortune-seekers, and pioneers, and their spirits linger, drifting through rural towns, swirling like tumbleweeds through ghost towns, and invigorating the artists who come here to be inspired. For the most part, you have to get off the beaten path to discover what really makes this place tick.

GHOST TOWNS Ghost towns are strewn throughout Nevada. Some, like Rhyolite, Belmont, and Berlin, are easily accessible from the highways and are meticulously preserved as if time stood still. But some, well, some make you work for the reward. Names like Metropolis, Manhattan, and Como are rarely tossed about by the casual traveler. But those who seek a richer experience in Nevada will find that the roads to these little-known ghost towns are littered with tall tales and unforgettable experiences.

FORTS Nevada’s motto is “Battle Born,” and this makes sense when you visit the military forts and early settlements throughout the state. Now a ghost town of its own, Fort Churchill stands sentinal under the northern Nevada sky, the adobe walls seeming to blaze in the setting sun and glowing like a phantom in the moonlight. In contrast, Mormon Station State Historic Park predates Fort Churchill by a decade, but its wooden cabins stand as true and secure as they did when they were built in 1851. The park is tucked in Nevada’s first permanent settlement, Genoa, and is surrounded by the quaint community.

A truly ethereal portion of Gold Butte is called Little Finland – or Devil’s Fire, depending on whom you ask – and must be seen to be believed. Delicate stone outcroppings and arches defy gravity yet have withstood eons of wild desert weather. It takes a hearty spirit, and sturdy hiking shoes, to properly explore Gold Butte.

OFF THE BEATEN PATH

But you won’t need a photo filter to awe your friends with the stunning colors and shapes to be found. Another unusual remnant of a long-gone era is the Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park just outside of Ely. The 30-feet-high beehiveshaped ovens were used in the 1870s to reduce wood to coal for the nearby mines, and you still can catch a whiff of acrid smoke when you enter the towering stone ovens. Did we mention that Nevada was founded by eccentrics? This is evident at unusual spots such as Stokes Castle, a three-story stone structure just outside of Austin. Stokes Castle was built by Anson Phelps Stokes, a railroad and mining tycoon who took a year to build his family’s summer home and only spent about a month in it. The castle is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We love when human error results in unfathomable beauty. That’s the case of the Fly Geyser near the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada. Don’t get too close – the geyser is on private property but is viewable from the road, and is worth the detour. The geyser was formed when a geothermal well was drilled and not properly capped, creating a constant eruption of mineral-laden water that has left layer after layer of colorful, bulbous sediment.

If the beauty of Fly Geyser hasn’t inspired the artist within, take a short detour on Guru Road on your way back to Reno. This dirt road alongside State Route 34 north of Gerlach is lined with inspirational quotes painted on rocks, as well as windswept pieces of art. Nevada’s character is epitomized by the unexpected art, natural beauty, and remnants of bygone eras that have been left to weather their existence in the High Desert. Sometimes the best treasures are found by turning off the main road. Fly Geyser

All Aboard! Some 150 years ago, the far reaches of Nevada called to pioneers and prospectors. Nevada’s railroads were the arteries that brought the state to life back in the day, and they continue to be vital to commerce and tourism in the 21st century. The huge iron horses made prosperity possible for the state and you can see them in full glory at the Nevada State Museums in Boulder City, Carson City, and Ely. The magnificent machines at work and on display in the museums, along with the V&T Railroad from Carson City to Virginia City, offer an unparalleled experience shared by every member of the family. They are a photographer’s delight. When the train whistle blows, it’s a signal of rich events and fun ahead. 22

Urban Highlights You think you know their stories, but the cities of Reno and Las Vegas have a few plot twists up their sleeves. Nevada’s two major urban areas, Reno in the north and Las Vegas in the south, have tales to tell of cutting-edge restaurateurs, upcoming artists and forward-thinking entrepreneurs. Whether you’re visiting Reno’s emerging Midtown District; exploring Las Vegas’ 18b Arts District and its Downtown 3rd District; or indulging in the culinary creations of celebrity chefs on the Strip, you’ll find Nevada’s urban highlights.

MIDTOWN IN THE MIX Immerse yourself in Reno’s urban landscape, with its mix of casinoresorts, independent local eateries and museums. Paddle a kayak at the Truckee River Whitewater Park, rock climb the world’s largest outdoor climbing wall or cheer on the Triple-A Reno Aces and Reno Bighorns — all downtown. And then, explore a little farther. Venture south of downtown — not far, just a mile or so — and the high-rises give way to mid-century office buildings and houses. Here in the Midtown neighborhood, you’ll find a story of organic urban renewal, a story told through such tempting new bistros as Midtown Eats and Süp. The farm-to-fork philosophy remains strong in this neighborhood, where an empty lot has been converted into a 1-acre urban farm that provides produce to neighboring restaurants. Browse such quirky shops as the Never Ender and Junkee Clothing Exchange — maybe even get inked at Aces Tattoo, Evolution or Nightmare Studios. End your day with a cocktail at one of the hip nightspots — including Brasserie Saint James, Midtown Wine Bar, Craft Wine & Beer and Chapel Tavern — that recently garnered attention in the New York Times.

“In the middle of the oldest neighborhood in Reno, you’ll find a vibrant group of people working hard to bring the best food, drink and goods to their hometown. You’ll get service with a smile whether you live down the street or are just passing through; Midtown is the heart of the Biggest Little City.”

CREATIVE WELLSPRING Las Vegas’ story is one of glitz and gaming, excess and escapism — a colorful tale, but delve into the narrative developing just off the Strip, in the burgeoning 18b Arts District or the Downtown3rd District. Explore eclectic galleries, shop small boutiques, maybe imbibe a craft cocktail while listening to an experimental music showcase: it’s all happening in the area west of the Strip anchored by Charleston Boulevard. This is the18b Arts District, so named because the original arts district area consisted of 18 blocks. If you’re lucky enough to be there on the first Friday on the month, you’ll want to check out the First Friday festival, where thousands flock for street performances, live music, local artists’ exhibits and shows, food trucks and more. Inspiration is in the air north of Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas — this is the Downtown 3rd District, the area where Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh relocated his company in a move to revitalize the community, spurring a spate of new business openings. Having an art attack? Head to Emergency Arts on Sixth and Fremont streets, a collective for writers, artists, musicians — and a great place to grab a cup of coffee. You may even want to stay here in Downtown 3rd, perhaps at the Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, which opened in November 2013.

CELEBRITY CHEFS The bright lights and gourmet menus will bring you back to the Las Vegas Strip, boasting more than 40 restaurants with celebrity chefs at the helm. Kick it up a notch at Emeril Lagasse’s Table 10 inside the Palazzo or throw down a tamale at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace. Unfold that starched napkin at Gordon Ramsay Steak inside Paris Las Vegas or loosen up at Todd English P.U.B. at Crystals in City Center. Calories do not count here — at least, they shouldn’t! — the point is to sample, sip and savor what’s on offer in this foodie mecca. 28

BASQUE FOOD Traditional Basque restaurants dot the Nevada culinary landscape and are concentrated more heavily in the northern end of the state. Elko, Winnemucca, Fallon, Gardnerville, and Reno boast the more well-known Basque eateries, including the Star Hotel, the Martin Hotel, the Overland, JT Basque Bar & Dining Room, and Louis’ Basque Corner. A Basque meal usually is served family style, so make friends with your neighbors or they won’t pass the salad or beans your way. The fare may vary, depending on whether the restaurant leans more Spanish-Basque or French-Basque, but you can be sure there will be at least five courses leading up to your main dish (did we mention that it’s best not to eat for a day or two before your meal?). Speaking of the main dish, this is where you get to see what Basque food is really about! Lamb and oxtail are staples of any menu, and if you order steak, remember that “Basque style” comes with a heaping of roasted garlic on top! Don’t be afraid of trying something new, Basque meals start and end with a Picon Punch, and get ready for the punch!

FRESH FARE Bite into a sweet cantaloupe grown in Fallon or tuck into a dish seasoned with zesty onions pulled from the Mason Valley. A glass of zinfandel or merlot from a Nevada winery should complement that nicely. Yes, Nevada has agriculture — including a vital ranching culture — although those in the industry must be creative to work with the desert soil and dramatic temperature swings. Sample local, fresh fare at such events as Tractors and Truffles, a farm-to-plate dinner event held in the fall in Fallon; Taste of the Valley, another autumn event, this one featuring produce grown in the Mason Valley; and Bet on the Farm!, a farmer’s market held weekly at Springs Preserve, a cultural center just west of the Las Vegas Strip. Become immersed in the farm-to-fork experience through culinary schools offered by some of the best chefs in the West. Pair an exhilarating weekend adventure with a cooking school and create a perfect “foodie” getaway. Of course, Nevada’s guests are not the only ones who value flavorful, local produce. Restaurants have jumped on the farm-to-fork trend, many of them taking advantage of the bounty available at the region’s farms and ranches. Asparagus, eggplant, summer squash, tomatoes and turnips are just some of the Nevada-grown fruits and vegetables that might find their way to your plate. Don’t forget libations — Nevada is leading a revolution in winemaking, developing desert-hardy grapes that use a fraction of the water that traditional crops consume. That is reason enough to be interested in Nevada’s four wineries, and the bonus is they produce delicious wines. In the south, there’s Pahrump Valley Winery and Sanders Family Winery, both in Pahrump. Pahrump Valley grows primarily red varietals. Sanders Family is planted with zinfandel and petite syrah and imports a gamut of red and white grapes to produce award-winning wines. In the north, you’ll find Tahoe Ridge Winery in Minden and Churchill Vineyards in Fallon. Tahoe Ridge started as a research vineyard in 1990 and went on to become the first full-production winery in the state. Churchill Vineyards lays claim to the only estate-produced white wines in Nevada. 32

Our only advice is to save room for dessert!

Test your endurance on the mountain bike trails around Austin on Highway 50, a spot that lures bikers from all over the world, or on northern Nevada’s Flume Trail, a challenging single track with breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe. Rev up your off-road vehicles on the 260-mile, mixed-use Silver State Off Highway Vehicle Trail in Lincoln County or at the Sand Mountain Recreation Area — yes, you can ride giant sand dunes! — off Highway 50 just east of Fallon.

Sand Mountain

Pack your tackle boxes when you come to Nevada. Who would’ve guessed that this desert state has so many places to fish? Lake Tahoe — along with Pyramid Lake, Cave Lake, Rye Patch Reservoir and Lake Mead, among others — are prime places for fishing. Bait your line for Lahontan cutthroat trout at Pyramid Lake or striped bass at Lake Mead. Anglers can test their best flies in the Truckee River near Reno-Sparks or Lamoille Creek in the Ruby Mountains near Elko. Pull yourself up rock cliffs: Red Rock National Conservation Area, just 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip, is a great place to climb, whether you’re just starting out or an expert. Red Rock offers 1,700 climbing routes of all grades and lengths, and is home to the annual Red Rock Rendezvous rock climbing event. Or keep two feet on solid ground. Hikers will find plenty explore in Nevada. Check out the trail system at Great Basin National Park near Ely or explore the Tahoe Rim Trail with its many connecting routes such as the Mt. Rose summit trail. Nevada’s also a place where you can do things that just aren’t done in most other places. Land sailing across the desert flats on three-wheeled vehicles powered by wind is one of them. Nevada’s vast desert playas offer the perfect terrain for this sport, and Smith Creek Playa near Austin, just off Highway 50, will host the 2014 Landsailing World Championship in July.

THE STEEP AND THE DEEP Now take a deep breath. That cold, crisp air lets you know you’re in for a challenge. The rush of adrenaline that follows is your second hint: You’re about to embark on an adventure in Nevada’s winter wonderland. With annual snowfall of up to 400 inches in the Sierra Nevada, as well as plenty of coverage throughout the state, Nevada offers winter playgrounds for skiing, snowshoeing and more.

Elko

Lake Tahoe, nestled in the Sierra Nevada along the Nevada-California border, is home to several world-class ski resorts that offer trails and terrain parks for all levels. On bluebird days — and there’s an abundance of those — the breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe will stop you in your tracks. That’s if you stop: the groomed slopes, challenging moguls, and thrilling terrain parks at Heavenly Mountain, Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe, and Diamond Peak Ski Resort will keep you moving. About an hour’s drive from Reno and easily accessible from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, the Lake Tahoe region also draws visitors for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and snowmobiling. For these reasons and more, Lake Tahoe is a premier winter sports destination. But don’t count out the rest of the state. Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort, about an hour’s drive from Las Vegas and just north of Mount Charleston, is one of the region’s often-overlooked gems. With 40 acres, the resort is small by industry standards, but is pursuing an ambitious 10-year expansion plan. Recent changes include a new quad chairlift and 14 new trails. If skiing isn’t your activity, head to a snow play area in the nearby Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, part of the HumboldtToiyabe National Forest, for sledding, a snowball fight or to build a snowman. Snow also falls in abundance on the eastern side of the state, where you can enjoy helicopter-skiing, among other winter activities, in a rural setting. The Ruby Mountains near Elko are where thrill-seekers on helicopter ski adventures get dropped into forested terrain, wide-open bowls, and tight couloirs. Hit the slopes at SnoBowl Ski Area near Elko or strap on snowshoes for a hike at Ward Mountain Recreation Area near Ely.

FROM TEE TO SHINING TEE Where can a person swing his or her clubs this state? Pretty much everywhere: Nevada offers miles of fairways, some on desert courses, others in mountainous terrain, but always with unique Nevada twists. Start your golf tour in Las Vegas, where you have your choice of nearly 50 courses. Among those is the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, owned by the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe and home to the Wolf Course, the state’s longest at 7,604 yards. There’s also the Royal Links Golf Club, with holes inspired by 11 different British Open rotation courses, and the Tom Fazio-designed Shadow Creek, home of the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational. Remember that Las Vegas is in the Mojave Desert, and here you’ll find many desert courses — links where the fairways are 38

green and narrow with a more natural rough. Sometimes you’ll be shooting over arroyos and across fairways, so no wild slices or hooks! About 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, on the Nevada-Utah border, is Mesquite, a town of around 15,500 people and nine golf courses. You can stay in Mesquite for week and play a different course every day. Not only does that make it a popular golf destination, it’s also the host of many national golf events, including the Mesquite Amateur and RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship. Travel north to the Carson City-Carson Valley area, just south of Reno, to take on the Divine 9, a group of courses nestled on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada. Plush greens, rolling

fairways, and scenic mountain views are the hallmark of these beauties, which together offer 70,000-plus yards of layouts by top designers. Don’t pack away the irons yet. You’ll want to check out the greens in nearby Lake Tahoe and Reno. Breathtaking lake views can be enjoyed from such courses as Edgewood Tahoe, host of the popular American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, and the Golf Courses at Incline Village, where the view from the Championship Course seventh tee is definitely camera-worthy. Among the Reno courses is the private Montrêux Golf & Country Club, host to the Reno-Tahoe Open, a PGA Tour summer event. Swing away — it’s tee time.

OUTDOOR RECREATION

STATE PARKS AND NATURAL WONDERS Nevada is full of playgrounds for outdoor recreation – there are 23 state parks, Great Basin National Park, Red Rock National Conservation Area and Lake Mead National Recreation Area, as well as the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, which includes such jewels as the Ruby Mountains Wilderness. Explore Western and prehistoric history as well as jawdropping geological formations at Nevada’s state parks. Visit Fort Churchill, Mormon Station or Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort state parks to see remains of settlements that gave Nevada its start. Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park has immense beehive-shaped ovens abandoned more than a century ago by silver miners. And then there’s Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park, which uniquely pairs the ghost town of Berlin with an adjacent ichthyosaur fossil site. Other parks reveal the natural evolution of Nevada’s landscape. Cathedral Gorge is a stunning example of beauty carved by millennia of erosion. Valley of Fire arises from the desert outside of Las Vegas with brilliant colors matched only by an artist’s palette. Trek out to Great Basin National Park near Ely and challenge yourself on the Wheeler Peak Summit Trail, an 8.6–miler with a 2,900-foot elevation gain. A tour of the Lehman Caves, marble caves ornately decorated with stalactites, stalagmites and other formations, is a must. Take in the stunning scenery at Red Rock National Conservation Area, just west of the Las Vegas Strip, accessible via a 13-mile scenic driving route. Pull over at one of the several stops for hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing. Pack a swimsuit for boating, fishing and other water fun at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, which offers year-round outdoor opportunities. Shhh! See that mountain goat? In the glacier-carved Lamoille Canyon and craggy Ruby Mountains you’ll find a vast variety of wildlife — including the elusive Himalayan Snowcock, which nests in the highest reaches of the Rubies— making this area a perfect place to for birdwatchers, hunters, and anyone who appreciates the beauty of wild horses galloping through the sagebrush.

Day 2

Distance: 160 miles/258 km

Distance: 160 miles/258 km

Rev your engines in Las Vegas, and take off for the open road via Interstate 15 North. Your first stop is Valley of Fire State Park, only an hour from Sin City, yet it feels like another world. Moviemakers think so too, and that’s why this valley of red and orange sandstone was featured in such movies as “Star Trek: Generations” and “Transformers.” Plan to spend at least three hours here before hitting the road again, this time backtracking slightly on I-15 South and then turning north on U.S. Highway 93.

Spend the morning exploring to arrive at your next stop, Rachel, around lunchtime to enjoy the famous Alien Burger at the Little A’Le’Inn. Rachel is on the Extraterrestrial Highway and is the center of many reported otherworldly encounters. You may see a spaceship hovering over the famed “Black Mailbox,” which marks the access road to infamous Area 51. If you arrive too early for lunch, the Little A’Le’Inn offers a variety of dishes and refreshments, served with a heaping side of extraterrestrial lore. To get here from Alamo, you’ll head north on U.S. Highway 93 and west on State Route 375, traveling about one hour.

This area is dotted with hot springs, and one of our favorites is Ash Springs, located on the east side of U.S. Highway 93 near the town of the same name. Ask a local where to turn, because there are no road signs to reveal this hidden gem. Your stop for the night will be in the town of Alamo. Luxury accommodations can be found at A Cowboy’s Dream Bed and Breakfast. Just up the road is Windmill Ridge, which boasts 15 western-themed cabins behind a family-run restaurant, and is very affordable.

42

Your next stop is Tonopah, about two hours northwest on State Route 375 and U.S. Highway 6/95. Keep watch overhead because you may just see some military air maneuvers as you skirt Nellis Air Force Base to the south. Tonopah was once called the “Queen of the Silver Camps,” and your first stop should be the Tonopah Historic Mining Park. This outdoor mining museum is on the site of the original silver mine and a great introduction into Nevada’s mining history. Another

The Jim Butler Inn and Mizpah Hotel are both located in the heart of town. The Mizpah is a historic gem that was renovated and reopened in 2011, and like many great Nevada landmarks, is rumored to be haunted.

This changed the face of boxing in the West and put the then-booming town of Goldfield on the map. Your next stop is only an hour away in Beatty, your base camp for the next 24 hours.

Continue south on U.S. Highways 95 and 160 for about an hour to Pahrump. This bustling bedroom community to Las Vegas is home to two of Nevada’s four wineries. We recommend staying long enough for lunch and wine tasting before continuing on to Las Vegas. You’ve come a long way, and now it’s time to end your trek in Las Vegas.

This saloon, favored by traveling motorcyclists and history buffs, is where Clark Gable sat for three days waiting to hear the fate of his love, Carole Lombard, after her airplane crashed on nearby Mount Potosi. The saloon is filled with decades of memorabilia, and there are still century-old gunfight bullet holes in the walls.

Day 3 Distance: 25 miles/40 km BOULDER CITY: Founded in the 1930s to house the builders of the Hoover Dam—then known as the Boulder Dam—Boulder City is one of two towns in Nevada where gaming is illegal (the other town is Panaca). Its idyllic downtown and bungalow-style homes make it a favorite retreat for visitors to the Las Vegas region. The Nevada State Railroad Museum, Boulder City, offers an interesting look at Nevada’s locomotive past and offers train rides aboard the Nevada Southern Railway.

Distance: 8 miles/13 km HOOVER DAM: Hoover Dam is a world-famous manmade wonder, and it’s a mere hour’s drive from the Las Vegas Strip. Allow a little extra time to walk across the dam bypass bridge, officially known as the Mike O’Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. This will give you the best, unobstructed views of the dam.

Distance: 67 miles/108 km VALLEY OF FIRE: If you packed your hiking shoes, take a scenic drive along Lake Mead from Hoover Dam to Valley of Fire State Park. The park is one of southern Nevada’s natural wonders, with deeply carved rock formations in fiery hues just minutes off Interstate 15.

Distance: 14 miles/23 km LOST CITY MUSEUM: Depart Valley of Fire to the northeast to reach Overton. Here you’ll find the Lost City Museum, a state museum dedicated to the history of Nevada’s indigenous tribes (Puebloan). It features artifacts from Pueblo Grande de Nevada, an Puebloan settlement excavated nearby, and a reconstructed adobe village.

Day 4 Distance: 90 miles/145 km DEATH VALLEY: You can’t do day trips out of Las Vegas without going to Death Valley National Park. The famous park is easily accessed through Pahrump, a town about an hour west of Las Vegas. Gas up the car, buy food, water, and sunscreen, and venture into the unparalleled landscape that is Death Valley. Some of the park’s highlights that are easily visited in one day are Dante’s View, Badwater, Devil’s Golf Course, Artists Palette, Zabriskie Point, and Furnace Creek. The park is open year-round, but some services are limited in the summer months.

This little town is the perfect place to gas up the car, get some food, and surprise your loved one by “locking your love” at Lovers Lock Plaza behind the Pershing County Courthouse. Keep the lock’s key as a token of your love or follow the ancient Chinese custom of throwing it away—as long as your lock remains on the chain, your love will last. As you continue east, take time to appreciate Nevada’s western heritage by driving through Winnemucca. Don’t worry: you’re only a few hours from your day’s destination, Elko.

As you near Elko, you’ll see the California Trail Interpretive Center on your left. This is a superb study of the challenges western California Trail explorers endured. It’s situated right on the trail within view of the Hastings Cutoff, a supposed shortcut to California taken by the doomed Donner Party.

You’ll spend the night in Elko, where there are plenty of hotels and restaurants. The Star Hotel is a Basque restaurant that was voted a Nevada Treasure in 2012, and it’s a must-visit during your stay in Elko.

Day 2 Elko is a bona fide cowboy town, host to the annual National Cowboy Poetry Gathering and a vibrant hub of ranching and mining in eastern Nevada. Spend some time downtown at the Western Folklife Center or venture out to Lamoille Canyon and the Ruby Mountains.

Day 3 Distance: 180 miles/290 km Tip your hat to Elko as you venture eastward to Wells, where you’ll turn south on U.S. Highway 93. Stop at the McGill Drugstore Museum as you near Ely, a place frozen in time, complete with a 1930s soda fountain. Be sure to call ahead to arrange a tour. When you arrive in Ely, choose from an array of modern and historic hotels. The Hotel Nevada is a perennial favorite, with its movie-star themed rooms and taxidermy trophies scattered throughout the casino. As you explore

Distance: 37 miles/60 km Pyramid Lake: Head north on Pyramid Highway (State Route 445) for about 45 minutes to Pyramid Lake. You will junction with the Pyramid Lake National Scenic Byway, which has the distinction of being the only national scenic byway entirely within an American Indian reservation. To the northwest is Sutcliffe with a trout hatchery that is interesting for all ages. If you head southeast, you can follow the highway around the bottom half of the lake and see Anaho Island, one of the largest nesting areas for pelicans in North America. Watch the diving birds of prey for a while before continuing on to Nixon. Here you can visit the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Visitors Center and Museum to learn about the tribe and hear traditional folk stories, such as how the rock formation called Stone Mother got her name. If you’re feeling adventurous, continue north on State Route 447 to the town of Gerlach and the Black Rock Desert. For 10 days each summer, the desert is home to the counterculture event called Burning Man. For the other 355 days of the year, it is a serene, stark mixture of desert, mountains, and hidden hot springs.

Day 2 Distance: 26 miles/42 km Virginia City: Step back in time—150 years to be exact—when you enter Virginia City, only 45 minutes from downtown Reno. Wooden sidewalks, saloons, Mark Twain artifacts and memorabilia, and a whole lot of fun await in this town best known as the home of the Cartwrights in the TV show “Bonanza.” A trolley ride is the best way to learn the history of the town and see the sights before spending the day shopping, taking old-fashioned photos, and sidling up to a genuine saloon bar.

indian territory | statewide

statewide indian TERRITORY Nevada is rich with Western culture and heritage. Whether you have one day or a few, you’ll find fascinating people, places, and adventures that represent the 27 active American Indian communities in the Silver State. The Lost City Museum is just an hour from Las Vegas and is a fascinating look at pueblo life, long lost to history. Likewise, the Stewart Indian School is a halfhour from Reno in Carson City and is an inspiring review of forced indoctrination of Indian children and their courageous struggle to gain equality with white settlers. The school became a beacon of culture and education over its 90-year tenure. Powwows abound in Nevada, offering glimpses of traditional Indian dance, music, food, and crafts from every corner of the state. Visitors are always welcome to powwows, where they can witness the beauty and majesty of traditional “fancy dancers” and listen to tribal leaders bless their tribes in their native languages. Pyramid Lake is an ethereal desert oasis with mysterious rock formations that can only be explained by tribal legend. The native Paiute tribe welcomes visitors to its museum, adventure seekers to its sandy shores, and anglers to its trout-rich waters. Nevada’s Indian Territory encompasses the entire state, with examples of this vital piece of the state’s culture scattered throughout the mountains, deserts, valleys, and lakes. Wherever you go, you’ll be right around the corner from the native experience.

las vegas territory | southern

SOUTHERN NEVADA LAS VEGAS Do we really have to say it? Really? Ok, what happens here, stays here. Now you know where you are in Nevada. There’s no other place like Las Vegas, and we bet you have the stash of private photos to prove it. This is where you can dine on the finest fare from celebrity chefs and then wash it all down with the most inventive cocktails on earth at nightclubs that only close when the sun comes up. This is Britney’s town now, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. But when you need a break from the 24-hour assault on your senses, explore the little-known corners the city and learn why this was such a vital watering hole for settlers in the first place. Stroll through Downtown, the original gambling Strip. Take a drive out to Boulder City or Laughlin and so you can truly say you’ve been to Southern Nevada. Venture out of town and discover the fresh air and unadulterated beauty of Red Rock Canyon. Fly through Bootleg Canyon on ziplines or search for petroglyphs in Valley of Fire. Appreciate just why this city in the desert is so unlike any other place – it’s where you can indulge your every whim and then retreat into some of the most stunning scenery in the West. It’s these extremes that make this a magical place, so maybe you won’t want to forget what happens here.

reno-tahoe territory | northwestern

NORTHWEST NEVADA reno-tahoe Reno-Tahoe is where gritty and edgy meet natural beauty with a splash of living history, creating the most amazing mix of fun and inspiration. Imagine exploring downtown Reno via a zombie pub crawl, stopping to read the historical marker where riveted Levi’s were invented. Kayak or tube through the Truckee River Whitewater Park, then soak your tired bones at one of the Biggest Little City’s worldclass spas. Perhaps take in some all-you-can-eat sushi (yes, Virginia, it does exist!) and peruse classic Warhols at the Nevada Museum of Art. Beer and history, sushi and fine art. That’s how we roll. Carson City, the state capital, is just a short jaunt down the highway and is the hub of all things historical. Museums with working steam engine trains and a life-size gold mine exhibit sit near the towering capitol and state government buildings. Cruise over the mountain to Lake Tahoe, and prepare to be awed. You’ll spam your friends’ Instagram feeds with jaw-dropping pics of towering green pines against blazing blue water that’s only distinguishable from the equally blue sky by the rim of snowcapped mountains that surround the lake. Tahoe is a ski and snowboard mecca in the winter, and in the summer it transforms into the happiest place on earth (sorry, Disney) because this is when you can mountain bike, hike, kayak, paddleboard, or just lie in the sand with a Corona nearby and feel the mountain air seep in and ignite your senses. Need a good excuse to grab your friends for a weekend getaway? How about camel races, a whitewater festival, lakeside Shakespeare, wild motorcycle rallies, or a down-and-dirty pub crawl? That’s Reno-Tahoe just about any time of the year. From special events to outdoor recreation, there’s a world to be discovered in this northwestern corner of Nevada.

NORTHERN NEVADA COWBOY COUNTRY Welcome to Cowboy Country, the vast open space of northern Nevada where “cowboy” is more than a noun, it’s a way of life. Boots and saddles are serious business here, and cattle have the rightof-way through town. This is the real American West, and you’ve found it in Nevada. Spend a few days in Elko in January and you’ll be treated to the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. Return in July for the National Basque Festival where chorizo and red wine take center stage in this celebration of Basque culture. If you feel up to the challenge, spend your vacation beyond the reach of cell phone towers tending to cattle at a local guest ranch. West WEndover, on the state’s eastern border, is home to the Historic Wendover Air Field, a vital outpost during World War II. Winnemucca is the gateway to Nevada’s rugged and lush mountains to the north and vast desert to the west. Take romance for a spin through Lovelock, where you can visit the only remaining round courthouse in American and “lock your love” in the courthouse plaza. When you venture away from the busy interstate and bustling country towns, you’ll find some of the most pristine wilderness in the western United States. You’ll find abundance wildlife, challenging hikes and climbs, and immense expanses of beauty.

Lamoille, Dini Esplin

NORTH CENTRAL NEVADA PONY EXPRESS “Young, skinny, wiry fellows, not over 18, must be expert riders willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred.” Yeah, you could call this some rough terrain. Spanning Nevada east to west is the wild, mountainous, rugged route of the famed Pony Express. The terrain hasn’t changed much in over 150 years, but stay on the highway and you’ll find a taste of the Wild West tamed through time. Your trek through this stretch of Nevada will take you on U.S. Highway 50, known as “The Loneliest Road in America.” Solitude and tranquility infuse the sagebrush sea along this ribbon of highway, and each town tells the story of the boom and bust of Nevada’s mining heyday. Ely, once a major resting point for Hollywood celebrities on their way to vacation throughout the West, now sparkles with vintage neon and a classic American “Main Street.” Find yourself by getting lost in Austin, where miles of mountain-bike trails showcase the beauty of Nevada’s high desert. Sample some of the best farm-to-fork fare in Fallon, where you can also taste wine and distilled spirits at an estate winery. Sure, Nevada’s Pony Express region has come a long way since the mail route blazed across the state in 1860, but it’s still an authentic slice of the Wild West. This is the land for explorers, where rugged beauty shines through sagebrush and snowcapped mountains across the Silver State.

NEVADA HISTORICAL SOCIETY

The Consolidated Virginia Mine in Virginia City, site of the Big Bonanza of the 1870s.

In 1867, the Consolidated Virginia Mining Company began operations in Virginia City, but did not immediately achieve success. In 1871, James Flood—in partnership with John Mackay, James Fair, and William O’Brien—bought stock in Consolidated Virginia, forming the Bonanza Firm. Eventually, the men bought the land owned by Consolidated Virginia. They hit the “Big Bonanza” in 1873, extracting more than $100 million in silver ore over the next nine years. 10

nevada silver trails | Central

CENTRAL NEVADA SILVER TRAILS Silver camps strung together by two-lane highways mark the swath of the state known as Nevada Silver Trails. These camps now exist as ghost towns frozen in time. These are the testaments to Nevada’s once-thriving mines and boomtowns, now populated by wildlife, sagebrush, and the curious traveler. This is an ethereal portion of Nevada, where solitude reigns supreme. This is where you can travel the Extraterrestrial Highway and dine on an Alien Burger with a heaping side of UFO tales. Search for spirits among the ghostly ruins of Rhyolite on the northeast entrance to Death Valley National Park. Some of Nevada’s best kept secrets are hidden in the hamlets and roadsides of Central Nevada: the Million Dollar Courthouse in Pioche, marine reptile fossils at Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park, clay caverns created by eons of erosion at Cathedral Gorge State Park, ghosts of the Mizpah Hotel in Tonopah, and the site of the Nelson vs. Gans boxing match in Goldfield. These all make up the fabric of Nevada’s inimitable character. There’s a lot of sagebrush and pine between the towns that dot the Silver Trails landscape. And there’s a lot to be discovered amid the ruins of ghost towns off the trail.
