Family Adventure Quiz

Family Adventure Quiz Results

What’s better than one Silver State adventure? A whole bunch of ‘em! See all six of our quiz results to fill this summer – and beyond – with endless amounts of family-friendly, only-in-Nevada experiences.

Silence

Surround Yourself in Silence!

Escape the daily hustle and bustle of everyday life and treat your family to some true rest and relaxation. Spend a night stargazing under some of the darkest (and quietest) skies in the Lower 48 at Great Basin National Park, or find serenity in some incredible Nevada State Parks, where you might just have the entire place to yourself. Gemfield is a geological wonderland just off the beaten path with A++ rockhounding, and the Rubies Route is all but guaranteed to get you off the grid and into some wide-open wilderness.

Adventure

It’s Adventure Time!

Have some fun in the sun – and under the stars! Pack up the car and head outside of the Silver State’s major metros to bask in the outta-this-world stargazing provided by some of the darkest skies in the Lower 48. Nevada’s daylight views are pretty incredible, too, especially from the sweeping vistas and towering peaks you’ll discover on thousands of miles of trails (with hiking options for every level of adventurer). We also think you’ll dig the opportunity to go rockhounding for turquoise, garnets, and Virgin Valley black fire opal, our state gemstone. We could go on and on, but trust us – adventure is out here, and eagerly awaiting you. 

Alien Research Center

Weird & Wild

Welcome to Weird Nevada!

Here in the Silver State, our quirks are our perks – and if you’ve landed here, you love oddball attractions as much as we do. A stop (or a stay!) at The Clown Motel is a must, as it’s home to literally thousands of clowns AND next door to a historic (and allegedly haunted) cemetery. You can search for signs of alien life along the Extraterrestrial Highway, and even attempt to make contact via the Black Mailbox. Speaking of otherworldly, take a nature walk to the kaleidoscopic Fly Geyser, an accidentally man-made geyser that looks transplanted from another planet. No matter which Weird Nevada adventure ends up calling your name, you’re guaranteed to experience memory-making magic. 

Loneliest Road in America

Road Trip

Hit the Highway!

Tunes up, windows down – there’s nothing like cruising the open road! A good ol’ fashioned road trip is your ticket to endless adventure, and anything but ordinary when you let the stars decide which route you take. And with oodles of only-in-Nevada overnighters, you can keep the fun going all night long by bunking in a castle, a clown motel, or even a train caboose. Let one (or all!) of our 10 favorite road trips inspire you, or pick a new-to-you city and point the car in that direction. Don’t forget to send us a postcard!

History & Heritage

Get Carried Away with Culture!

The Silver State has a fascinating history, and it’s best experienced through hands-on, only-in-Nevada adventures! Travel back in time with a visit to Virginia City, where you’ll instantly be immersed in the Wild West atmosphere of the Comstock Lode era. Speaking of mining, the still-standing ruins of so many boom-and-bust mining ghost towns are equally enchanting – Rhyolite is a popular favorite! You’ll wanna pack an appetite for learning about Basque culture in Nevada, too, best enjoyed over delicious family-style feasts in historic boarding houses. And field trips are way more fun when you’ve got museums like ours – specializing in everything from pinball machines and the Atomic Age to vintage neon and a million dollar courthouse.

On the Water

Make a Splash!

Nothing beats the heat like getting on the water! Make Laughlin your home base for all kinds of activities on the Colorado River, including boating, jet skiing, fishing, swimming, and tour cruising. Up north, the beauty of Lake Tahoe is even more awe-inspiring when you paddle through those crystal-clear waters on a transparent Clearly Tahoe Kayak Tour. Take advantage of the poolside paradises offered at five-star resorts in Las Vegas and Reno, or go more off-the-grid with a natural hot spring soak.

Why travel the world, when you can go to Las Vegas and see it all? 🤷🏻‍♀️😆 and if you’re going to see Vegas, there is no better way than in a helicopter 🚁 Swipe across for a glimpse into our sunset flight over the strip with iflypapillon #sponsored #iFlyPapillon
.
The kids will tell you this was their fave activity during our visit to the City and it’s super affordable! Prices start at $85 each for adults and $75 each for the kids! It was cheaper to do this than see the show we wanted to see 🙈 and we had free champagne 🥂They had me at ‘Free Champagne’ 😂
.
And yes, that’s an actual rollercoaster inside a hotel 😂 #onlyinvegas (our kids were not tall enough to ride this, but there is a pretty cool arcade right next to the entrance of this that will totally help you avoid meltdowns 🙈) More to come on visiting Las Vegas with kids! 👀
From all of us at Safe Haven, we hope you have a safe and happy Easter! #bobcats #bigcats #Nevada #wildlife #animalrescue #Easter #animals
We went on a beautiful hike up to a waterfall today. It’s so surprising how many beautiful places there are to see in our area in Nevada.

We are having a blast exploring this area and we are really appreciating our time here. I wish more things were open for us to explore but it’s nice to find little jewels like this place.

Our transition into fulltime RVing hasn’t been difficult to our surprise. The boys are really enjoying all of the outdoor time and we’re exploring everyday! We are excited to see where our path takes us next!
this past weekend we decided to take a road trip to no where. we got in the car, turned the music up loud and just drove - let me tell you it was a real moral booster! the kids were so excited to get dress and go beyond our community gates. now here we are a week later approaching the high 90’s😓

Me dijeron que si estaba LOCA llevando a los niños a Las Vegas. Que que iba a hacer allá con ellos. Pero siempre he dicho que los niños uno los puede llevar a cualquier lugar!! Siempre habrá que hacer con ellos.
.
Ahora bien, no les miento hay ciertos factores en Las Vegas que se salen de nuestras manos, como por ejemplo los pintorescos anuncios en las calles de ciertas actividades, el constante enfoque a los casinos etc. pero esta visita a Las Vegas fue por motivos laborales de mi esposo y no es verdad que me iba a quedar trancada con ellos #NUNCA.
.
Tuvimos la Gracia de NO toparnos en la calle con nada que no pudiese explicarse y que fuese ofensivo nivel 15.
.
Actividades y cosas que hacer con los niños No faltaron, de hecho nos faltaron días para hacer mas. Descubrí cosas que no conocía en Las Vegas pues la vez anterior que fui fue un viaje de chicas con otro enfoque. Aquí debajo les comparto algunas de las cosas que hicimos y otras que quedaron pendiente por si en algún momento les toca ir a Las Vegas con sus hijos.
