Lamoille Canyon

Lamoille Canyon

Adorned with alpine peaks, lakes, and flowing streams, tree-lined canyons, and horizon-chasing, high-desert valleys, Elko County is vast and varied, with the Ruby Mountains and Lamoille Canyon Scenic Byway as its stunning centerpiece.

Great Basin National Park

It can be difficult to stand out in a state so rich in amazing outdoor wonders. With alpine lakes, towering peaks, limestone caves, and Earth’s oldest trees—all beneath the brightest stars in the darkest skies in the Lower 48—Great Basin National Park does exactly that.

Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park

The stars of this state park are six 30-foot-tall, beehive-shaped stone kilns, built in the late 1870s to produce charcoal for the region’s mining smelters. Rumor has it that they later moonlighted as hideouts for stagecoach bandits, too. Speaking of moonlight, the park is open 24/7, making it a perfect spot to gaze at eastern Nevada’s famously star-studded skies.

Spencer Hot Springs

Spencer Hot Springs

Visitors and locals alike have flocked to Spencer Hot Springs for decades, which has become more popular in recent years due to one little factor: dependability. Of all the natural hot springs found throughout Nevada, Spencer Hot Springs always seems to be perfect—both with delicious water temps and panoramic views—no matter what time of year you hit it.

Lake Tahoe

With 72 miles of pristine shoreline hemming in 191 square miles of brisk, opaline water, “Big Blue” weighs in as North America’s largest alpine lake—and with 1,645 feet between your stand-up paddleboard and the bottom, it’s also the country’s second deepest. (Try not to drop your phone.)

Sand Mountain

Created by geologic forces over several millennia, this six-story-by-two-mile-long sand dune constantly moves and shape-shifts, with the exception of one special feature—the Super Bowl.

Nelson Ghost Town

Eldorado Canyon & Techatticup Mine

Nestled in Eldorado Canyon is the Techatticup Mine, the oldest, richest, and most famous gold mine in southern Nevada. You can take mine tours, rent canoes and kayaks for a dip into the nearby Colorado River, and even snag a permit for full-on photoshoots. And you won’t be the only one eager to capture this Wild West landscape—this spot has a history of being showcased in movies, TV shows, and magazines, with plenty of left-behind evidence to show for it. One of our faves? A crashed plane from 3000 Miles to Graceland.

Downtown Reno Riverwalk

At the heart of Reno’s downtown urban renaissance is the one and only Riverwalk District, a sparkling medley of shops, bistros and cafés, lodging, bars, taverns, indoor and outdoor entertainment venues and even a whitewater park.

Downtown Las Vegas

Today’s “DTLV” is alive with districts celebrating the soul of Vegas, starting with the famous Fremont Street Experience. Beyond, explore Fremont East, the Las Vegas Arts District, the Downtown Container Park and Fergusons Downtown—all packed with hip bars and restaurants, live music venues, boutique hotels, and cool shops, all along walkable streets buzzing with restored vintage Vegas neon signs, Googie fonts, and out-of-this-world art.

Death Valley National Park

Death Valley National Park

Brimming with otherworldly landscapes, incredible geologic and human history, and animals found nowhere else on earth, a lifetime of discovery awaits at the lowest, hottest, and driest place in North America.

International Car Forest of the Last Church

Ready to wade into Weird Nevada? One of our fave rogue open air galleries in the Silver State, make the Car Forest (and Goldfield!) part of your Free-Range Art Highway discoveries.
