The state capital of Nevada is Carson City.

Nevada gets its name from the Sierra Nevada.

Around Nevada

The excitement capital of the world; especially if you win.

The gambling centres of Reno and Las Vegas is what attracts most visitors to Nevada; even the Greyhound from San Francisco to Salt Lake City and Denver stops at Reno for enough time to let you play the slots; if you're over 21.

Apart from the distractions of the casinos and neon in Las Vegas and Reno, there are also some scenic attractions in Nevada.

Lake Mead.

Hoover Dam straddles Nevada and Arizona. The colossus concrete structure holds back the Colorado River, and creates a man-made lake.

A number of historical sites also survive in Nevada: An 1868 mansion in Virginia City is known as the Castle; the Mormon Station Historic State Monument is in Genoa; and you can visit Fort Churchill Historic State Monument in Yerington.

Nevada Museums

Many of Nevada's museums exhibit Native American crafts and artefacts and relics from the early mining days.

Among these are the Nevada State Museum, in Carson City; North-eastern Nevada Museum, in Elko; and the Nevada Historical Society, in Reno.

Travel Nevada.

Visit Nevada for the golden-hour ghost towns, intriguing attractions and far-out art; stay for the cafe classics, sagebrush saloons, and surprising scenery.

Nevada offers let’s-see-what-happens adventure everywhere you look, and touring Nevada is the best way to explore it.

Nevada Ghost Towns

When silver mining was no longer profitable in Nevada, the people moved out. You can find at least twenty of these historic ghost towns between Lake Tahoe and Salt Lake City, and there are many more around Nevada.

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe crosses the boundary between California and Nevada, at an altitude of about 1,897 m. On its shores are tourist resorts and state recreation areas.

Carson City

The Washoe and Paiute tribes were already here when a trading post was set up in 1851. Silver was discovered in the nearby Comstock Lode and the Carson City silver dollar was born.

Carson City thrives on tourism. Apart from the casinos, tourists can also visit Old West ghost towns, and abandoned gold and silver mines.

Nevada Desert

The desert area is known as Death Valley, and it holds the record of the hottest temperature ever recorded in North America, a sweltering 57º C, in 1913.

Death Valley National Park, in south-western Nevada and south-eastern California, is the largest in the adjoining United States.
