New Weird Nevada Tours

Michael Heizer’s City, a vast land sculpture in the desert of central Nevada, opened to the public in the Fall of 2022 on a limited reservation basis. In development for more than 50 years, City is composed of mounds and depressions made of compacted dirt, rock, and concrete, built in five phases, each containing its own substructures within. Information about 2023 tours will be released soon.

Haunted Boulder City Ghost & UFO Tour are led by paranormal expert Joshua P. Warren, a regular fixture of Discovery Channel’s Ghost Adventures. Learn the stories of the many people who perished while building Hoover Dam, the ghost dog that roams the streets are night, and other Weird Nevada facts.

New Jewels

Nevada is known for its rockhounding. The newly-opened Goldfield’s Enigmata Esoterica offers all kinds of custom turquoise and silver jewelry acquired straight from the Nevada desert. Manned by two artists behind the curated works at the International Car Forest, makers Richard and Astrid create artworks of all mediums inside their historic home-turned-workshop.

Travel Nevada Pro Tip

Got rockhounding on the brain? While you’re in Goldfield, be sure to stop by Gemfield—a rockhound’s paradise. Brimming with gem-quality chalcedony just about every color of the rainbow, this pay-to-dig site is just $1 per pound, and located a quick 4 minutes off the Free-Range Art Highway.
