266 SIGNS YOUR #NVROADTRIP IS SURE TO SATISFY | SYDNEY MARTINEZ
History is amazing and Nevada is full of it, too. We try our best around these parts to pull out the shiny stuff, but holy wow, the Nevada State Historic Markers make sure that we’re playing with all the cards in the deck. With an extraordinary 266 roadside markers to be had, a lot of the markers are located along the main highways, not at the actual historic sites themselves. Whether you want to break up those long hauls with a good solid leg stretch at the markers, or follow the breadcrumbs into the actual historic stomping grounds themselves, paying attention to these beauties certainly makes traveling through this state go from great to already mapping out your next trip back.
Commemorating an impressive span of historic sites and events as diverse as Nevada’s landscape itself, pull over the car to drink it all in, then experience for yourself. Battle Born blue is sure to pulse through those veins, if only for a little while. #NVHistory
