Getting Around Nevada

Getting To and Around Nevada

Nevada is a wide-open expanse of mountains, valleys, lakes, and most of all, roads. A seemingly endless network of paved highways, gravel roads, and backcountry trails link one adventure to the next.

ROAD TRIPPIN’

The automotive spirit is alive and well in Nevada. With a vast network of open roads and breathtaking scenic byways, there’s no better way to explore Nevada than by car. But this is not your average road trip. Fuel stations, restrooms and even access to water can be far between. Pack extra supplies and don’t forget the chains come winter.

You never know what you’ll see or whom you’ll meet on public transportation, but you’re bound to arrive with a great story or two.

THE WEATHER OUT THERE

Nevada is a land of extremes. And the weather is no exception. To the north, desert lands provide warm days and sharply cooling nights. Plan for weather changes—especially in the winter. Winter snows can come earlier or later than you expect. To the south, primarily hot desert air with high daytime temperatures and pleasant winter days await you.
