Nevada is one of the most incredible places to get outside and play, explore, and get away from it all. Of course, these days, some things are a little different. Here’s what to consider before you come camping and adventuring, and what to know when you do.

Great Basin National Park Astronomy Amphitheater

Officially dubbed an “International Dark-Sky Park” due to its nearly non-existent light pollution, Great Basin National Park recently opened a new Astronomy Amphitheater with the galaxy as the main event, with programs to be shared in this new space in 2021. 

  • Designed with standard seating and rows lit by red lights for access. All walkways are illuminated with red lights to preserve night visions for viewing the stars at the telescope. 
  • Ample seating available. Guests do not need to bring their own chairs.

Jackson House Hotel & Tea Room

Pinkies up at Eureka’s historic tea house, where you can now sip away while hearing stories of the past, including of guests who reportedly never “checked out.” In the fall, take a guided tour of this Victorian Era gem, or check in any time to one of nine elegant rooms, all done up like they were back in 1877, when it was built and billed as Nevada’s only fire-proof hotel. Turns out it wasn’t, but it was rebuilt in 1880 and beautifully restored to its former glory in 1998.

Tahoe East Shore Trail

Dubbed as “America’s Most Beautiful Bikeway”, the long awaited Tahoe East Shore Trail is not only a spectacular way to recreate at North America’s largest alpine lake, but also provides direct access to public beaches, coves and trails along the picturesque Nevada shoreline. 

  • Located in North Lake Tahoe near Incline Village, this new trail system lies below the highway bordering Lake Tahoe’s eastern shoreline, providing unfiltered views and incomparable access to Lake Tahoe.
  • This 3-mile paved trail system connects Incline Village south to Sand Harbor State Park
  • Despite only being three miles long, this project has taken decades to accomplish—requiring the integration of multiple federal, state, and local governments—paving the way for future recreational development that will eventually span around Lake Tahoe’s shoreline entirely.

It’s A Date!
